When do they stop growing on average?

Just wondering~ Maggie is almost 6 months, wondering how much more she could possibly grow. She's about 8 lbs now I think.

I believe what I read was that a dog weighs 3/4ths of it's full grown weight at 6 months.

Stacy, That is about right for my Yogi, we got him at about 7 months he weighted 13pds he stayed at 14.5 and then at about one he grew a bit taller and he weighs 17.5 at little over 2 yrs. I never had a dog that grew taller after 1yr, I've had them grow fatter.

Jaime weighed:

10 1/2 weeks 3 pounds, 14 ounces
6 1/2 Months 8pounds
9 months 9pounds, 2 ounces
13 months 10 pounds
5 1/2 years 10 pounds, 13 ounces (highest weight -- spoiling husband)
15 3/4 years 8.4 pounds (not too skinny -- just right -- loss of muscle)

Since my other two Havanese lived in puppy mills for about two years, do not have any weights on them prior to adoption.

I think it varies but when we got Abby at 8 mos. she was 7.3 lbs. and a year later she was the same weight. We then started introducing some "people food snacks" and she got up to nearly 8 1/2 lbs. She has been staying pretty steady at that weight since and she is now three yrs. old.

When my Lola was 1 year old she was sick and needed Xrays. At the time she was 8 lbs and I just loved her being so small. When the vet came back and showed me the Xrays and was explaining her anatomy she said see her joints and all the bone growth she still has. I was really disappointed because I thought she was done growing. 18 mths or more the vet said - so your puppy might have alot more growing yet.

Kodi had slowed dramatically by 8 months, and by 10 months he was the same size and weight he is now at 20 months. I think it varies quite a bit from line to line and even dog to dog. Kodi was a pretty big baby (6 lbs at 11 weeks) and while he's a large-ish Hav, there are certainly Havs a lot bigger!

Ask your breeder, different lines grow at slightly different rates, seriously, in my breeder's line (out of Pan) her dogs keep growing until they are three with most growth in their first year, by two they fill out but keep changing until 3.

We have a great article about growth in HCA Horizons, called "How Big Will My Puppy Get?" here's the link.

Thanks guys. I will ask my breeder. She's definitely slowed lately. Her mama and dad are 10 and 12 lbs respectively. So I don't think she will be too big. I don't care just wondering
