Default Crazy weight gain

DDog is 7 months old and weighs 80 lbs (intact male). At one point he gained 25 lbs in 6 weeks . The vet put him on another scale to make sure that scale was working well, which it was. No wonder his bones ache with Pano.
Thankfully the weight gain is slowly tapering off and so is his Pano. Any predictions about his future adult weight?
I cannot believe how big he is. He sits next to me at the table and can see what I have on my plate!!

I'd guess DDog could mature at the high 90s. But since he had such a big weight gain, and he is gaining less now, he may not get that big. Be interesting to know how big his parents are and also if he was the biggest pup in the litter.

Mom was large and the dad medium/smallish. DDog was the largest pup.

Mine was the opposite, large dad med mom. Mine was not the biggest pup at birth but ended up the biggest when I brought him home.

Find Out Your Puppy's Adult Weight | Puppy Chart

I found this pretty accurate for several dogs I tried based on puppy weights. My male is about 4-5 pounds lighter than predicted.
