A question about height

I have a 5 1/2 month old pup. She's 21.7 inches at the withers and it's been a few weeks since she's gained any height. Will she get any taller, or is this the age where she stops growing height wise?

They grow in spurts, and they all vary. But mine kept growing in height until about 9 or 10 months, so I'd guess yours will get taller.

My male looked small (to me, in reality he wasnt) up until about 6 months. At 6 month he started gaining height pretty fast. In 3/4 months he put on about an inch or so a month. He is 9 months now, about 25 inches (at the shoulder). They all grow differently and at different rates. Give you pup time, they don't stop growing and filling out for almost 2 years!
