Samson2013 Update:

Samson did grow more in fact he's grown another inch and is now 27" at 9 1/2 month.
Didn't expect him to get so tall as he was always behind the growth chart and was more towards the size of a female gsd.
He now weighs 76 lbs.

Axel13 All pups grow at different rates! My youngest has only recently finished growing at 18 months, weighing in at 50kg and 34 inches at the withers. Although from about 12 months onward he only grew slightly.

I think it really depends on the lines and their parents (although neither of Axels parents where over sized like he is).

selzer Pups grow at their own rate, and they stop growing when they get where they are going. Even puppies from the same litter follow different growth patters. It is therefore impossible to give you a definitive answer. My best guess would be that a dog is not finished growing at 8 months. I had a boy that reached his adult height at 10 months, but continued to fill out for a year or more longer.

Perfectly stated!

Thanks.

FWIW, my guy is 9 months old (11/13/13) and is 85 lbs. Not sure on height as I haven't bothered measuring. Both parents are well over 95lbs however.
