According to the dog’s weights, we can define four types of breeds:

  1. Small and Toy breeds. Examples: Yorkshire terriers, Dachshunds, Miniature and toy poodles, Shih Tzus, Chihuahuas.
  2. Medium Breeds. Examples: Beagles, Spaniels, Poodle, Border Collie, Bulldog, Bull Terrier.
  3. Large Breeds. Examples: Labrador retrievers, German shepherds, Belgian Malinois, Dalmatian, Boxer, Giant Schnauzer.
  4. Giant Breeds: Great Danes, Dogue de Bordeaux, Mastiff, Saint Bernard.

To find out your dog’s breed type consult the following table:

Breed Type Weight
Small and Toy Breed < 23 lb (< 10 Kg)
Medium Breed 23 – 55 lb (10 – 25 Kg)
Large Breed 56 – 100 lb (26 – 45 Kg)
Giant Breed > 100 lb (> 45 Kg)

This table gives you guidelines, you should take into account your dog’s corporal condition while reading this table.

For example, if your dog is a Bulldog (medium breed) and weights 30 Kg, he is not a large breed dog.

He is an overweight medium breed dog.
