Approx. when does height stop?

I know I've heard a year but some people's GSDs stop later or even earlier. Akbar is 3/4 DDR and 1/4 Czech. He just turned 6 months and is 24'' and I was wondering if he'll get taller.
One of his sibilings(female) from a previous litter stopped at 7 months. I also know that males take longer to mature then females so should I expect him to keep getting taller even past 7 months?
Just curious...

Re: Approx. when does height stop?

Karlo(Czech/W.German) has gained an inch or so from 8 months to 10. I think(hope) he is at his height now. Just some filling out to do. He has alot of loose skin so I know he has about 5-10#'s to gain. He is 85# and 27" at 10 mos, very thick neck.
Onyx(female/lines?) stopped w/ height at the same age, and then gained about 5# after a yr. She is 93# and 26" at 3yrs.

Oh, they are both raw fed and Onyx was spayed at 6 mos. Karlo is intact...not sure if that makes a difference.

Re: Approx. when does height stop?

I bet he keeps growing right up to at least 10 months. I know my Bo went from 27 to 29 from 7 months to now he is 10 1/2months.
Bella grew about an inch in height from 7 months to now age 19 months.

A little more!

Lancer was 23" around months, 25" at 8 months and ended up at 25.5" at a year.

I just measured Stark (DDR/WGSL) and at 9 months old he is 26.5'.

ETA: Stark is raw fed as well and intact..
