Hello everyone! I constantly crochet for my dog but this is the first time I've posted in this section. I am looking for people who have small to medium sized dogs. I am working on a rather large collection of crochet dog patterns, but all of my patterns are one size, which is the size of my dog Georgie. However, i know there are a lot of people out there who would love my patterns but need a different size.
So i was wondering if any of you dog owners that dress your dogs in clothes could measure your dogs for me, give me the breed and age of your dog so that I can make new sizes.
I really need this, so if you decide to help me I will either give you a free copy of one of my patterns or a crocheted dog item.

For reference, this is the size of my dog and im looking for dogs that are smaller or bigger than this:
12 inch collar
14 inch collar to base of tail
16 inch chest

Please PM me if you're interested in helping! Thanks muchly!

My little Lacey Bug is a 3 lb. yorkie and her measurements are... Neck 8"      Chest 10"       Length 9"

Normally when we buy her clothes it's a size xsmall. Hope this helps you some for the tiny breeds.

Also, my 2 1/2 year old dashchund's measurments are Neck 10"      Chest 16"    Length 18" (keep in mind doxie's have wider chests and longer bodies) Wink

Good luck with your sales!

My BF's family's dog, Jinx, is a 13 or 14 year old terrier-beagle mix (the only tall one in the whole litter!). He looks exactly like a Harrier:

Neck 18
Chest 28
Length 23

I don't know how much he weighs, but probably around 40 to 45 pounds. I just made him a camping sweater, so I should know Tongue I'm going to also PM so I can get info about your crochet patterns Cheesy

Nucky's a chihuahua cross, and her measurements are:

Neck: 9.5"
Chest: 16"
Length (collar to base of tail): 10" - I think it's probably closer to 12", but she's curled up eating a treat and complained quite a lot at having tape wrapped round her...
