When did your dog reach adult weight?

My pup, Jerzey, is a 9 month old female who currently weights 72 lbs. My question is... how old was your pup when it reached its adult weight and finally "stopped" growing? I know that there is no real way to tell but I just wanted to hear how long it took your pup's weight to stablize.

Thanks!

Rocky was about three when he hit his adult weight. He stopped growing upward around a year, year and a half, but kept filling out until three or so.

not a GSD but I remember our husky took 3 years to really fill out and we waited until she was 2.5y to start to sled her. I think they stop growing up but widen out for sure.

I'd say Katie is at her adult weight and size now. She's been this size since about a year and a half. She was spayed at 6 months if that makes a difference.

Mandalay will be a year old next week and she was 83 pounds a few weeks ago when I took her in to be weighed...You mean she could still gain another 10 pounds before it is all said and done with?!

When she was a baby I had posted some pics b/c I was concerned that she was too skinny and long. Well now she is long and solid! lol

Re: When did your dog reach adult weight?

Rocky's weight has been about the same for about 18 months or so. We did notice him filling out but not getting much taller. He weighed in at 86 lbs earlier this month at the vet.
