You can always get a kid's sweatshirt. Take a tape measure and measure the girth of the dog -- then go to Wal-Mart and measure.
Put the shirt on backwards (tag under the chin) and chop off the sleeves where you need to.
With a male you have to bundle up the excess fabric at the side and put a rubberband around it (like a "ponytail" secured with the rubberband) otherwise they will pee in it when they potty. So you want it *tight* around the lower mid-section. But to gauge the size, measure him around the biggest part of the chest.
But use a BOY's sweatshirt -- girl's sweats/tee's are too big around in the neck to fit well. I've put shirts/sweats on my dogs LOTS of times.
