Ask Billy: Another Portie Inquiry

Kim from Facebook writes: I was reading your blog that you did online on Monday about the PWD and the First Dog. I wanted to know how large do they grow or are they miniature breeds like dachshunds? Thanks!

Hi Kim, thanks so much for your question. Porties are considered medium-sized dogs. As adults, they weigh about 30-60 pounds (although I've seen bigger). Porties measure about 17-23 inches tall at the shoulders. Porties often appear bigger than they really are because of their fluffy coats.

Take Zeke, for example. People often think he weighs 70 pounds, but under all those curls, he weighs only 48 pounds.
