I would say depends on the bitch and sire and even back further than that. The female may have mated with a bit smaller male or a really large male and your girl got that trait. I had a male Pyr that was small for a male but had a male that was huge for a Pyr. Lots of DNA there!!

Talk to the breeder. They will be happy to give you any advice. You'll have seen the bitch and the male so you'll have any idea if her size is correct.

The breeder will definitely know since they'll know the lineage back at least two to three generations.

It is mostly about genetics if you feed them and exersize then right it is almost preordained. Right now i have a female newfoundland that was the runt of the litter only 24 pounds at 12 weeks.
