When I brought my Dogo Argentino pup home when he was 12 weeks old and was a lot smaller than I imagined he would be. He is 8 months old now and weighs about 65 lbs. I was just wondering if this is the typical weight for his age or if he's smaller than the typical Dogo...

At 8 months it's still definitely a puppy. Please take a good look at both parents, that is approximate looks of your dog at its adult age of 3 years. Growth will end at around 4 years (thickening process). Feed it a healthy diet with 2-3 meals per day. Do not weight train him at this young age, but allow him a lot of free running. Walk him on an uneven terrain with lots of rocks and as less as possible on a flat paved roads...

Hi, your dogo is fine, Remember that they are only supposed to weight between 80 to 100 lbs. My male dogo is 1 4 months and he is 97 lbs. But he is still growing and changing. You will notice that your dogo will stop growing and putting on weight but you will still see his body changing. My dogo keeps getting more cut every month but he docent put on weight. Remember also you wanna keep your dogo with in the standards of the breed. So don't worry you dogo for sure will put on at least 15 more ponds but the time it stops growing.
