OrcaInspired I had the same problem as you-I got a mystery mix puppy from the shelter and had no idea how much to feed since I did not know the adult weight.
I hunted around on the internet and found a lot of age-weight charts for various purebreds ranging from undersized Chihuahuas to Great Danes. Based on my chart I think a 8 wk old pup that weighs 5 lbs will have an adult weight of about 20 lbs. At least that is my best guess.
