When is pup full grown

On the average, at what age does a pup achieve 100% of its weight and height?

Somewhere between 8-10 months. Although, it can vary.

I would say by 2 years old. I think they tend to reach their adult height around a year to 18 months, but most tend to "fill out" and settle into their adult weight/height around 2-
Some lines are going to grow quickly, and some more slowly.

I would say 1-2 years old depending on the line. My guys gained up to 2 years old.

In my experience, I'd say height is acheived between 8-12 months depending on the dog's family. It seems weight can continue to change as the dog fills in up to 18 months or so.

My lines are usually full grown by 10 months, but they continue to fill in (chest, head, muscle etc) until 18 months.

Oh no - should I worry?

We have two Havanese puppies from the same litter - at 24 weeks they are 9.5 and 12.8 lbs.

I have two havanese males. One grew very quickly and I thought he would eventually be a small horse. The other grew slowly and is still on the small side. I can't tell you exact weights till Monday when they go to the vet. I'd guess Milo is about 11-12 lbs. and Bailey about 15, but I could be way off.

<b>Just Milo and me, and . . . </b>Bailey makes three . . . until Ruby said, "hey, what about me?"

What's to worry about? Kodi is 6 1/2 months, and 14 lbs. He's beautiful, smart, and couldn't possibly have a better disposition. He might be too big to do well in the breed ring, but since he was just neutered, that's not much of an issue.

His size won't be a hindrance in obedience or agility, which is what I want to do with him.... and besides, WE think he's absolutely perfect just the way he is! You'll enjoy your guys even if they turn out to be Hav giants!!!
