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.

Samson2013 He's from German working lines. His mother was 24" and 70lbs and his father was 27" and 90lbs.

martemchik What lines is he from? Who are his parents? That will give you the best idea of how big he'll get.

Samson2013 Thanks mister c,

I seen something similar to that earlier but he's already slightly above the breed standard and nearly at what most puppy's weigh at 12 month. He's grown pretty much consistently an inch per month since 6 month so that's why I posted on here. Just curious to see if he'll carry on at that rate for another few month or will it slow down considerably now he's near enough on the top end of breed standard. His growth plates are still very noticeable if that helps, I've heard on a lot of forums he'll carry on in height until they close up?
