Questions about weight and growth

Got another one for you all...

When does a typically GSD puppy's growth slow? by growth I mean weight.

Cody was gaining 12 pounds/month for a while. Now, it seems to have slown down to maybe only 3 pounds/month. I noticed the decline in growth between the 7-8 month range.

Right now he's 8 months and about 73-74 pounds. at 7 months he was 70 pounds


A tired puppy is a good puppy

That's about where Nero was at those ages. We noticed that he grew in spurts. He'd be about the same height and weight for a month or so, then he'd suddenly look taller and skinnier and then start putting on weight and eating like a horse for a while... then slow down again.

I've read that they don't reach their adult weight until 2 years. Nero is 15 months, 83 pounds and still skinny. He just had another height spurt.
