capote is nigh on 5 months old now and since I've gotten him he's gotten SO big! Big enough to where I'm like..'you know..if you stop growing now that would be awesome'

When did your puppies stop growing, older Hav owners? Around how old do they reach their full growth as far as length and height? Right now Capote is about as big as his dam was, but he's not near as big as his sire. He'd have to grow about 6 more pounds to get there.. He's about 7 lbs now.

I've heard and read different things....that some dogs stop growing anywhere from 6 months to a year. I do know that Gucci has definately slowed down growing the last month or so. Its really hard to tell. I figure she'll end up somewhere between 8-10 lbs as she both had parents in that range...but you never know, right?

7 lbs sounds like a good healthy weight for a lil' boy Gucci is about 6, but she hasn't been eating well lately with all the heat!

Brady slowed down a lot by 6 or 7 months and was at his full size by 9 or 10 months. He is much bigger than your little guy!

I was told that Shelby would be a big girl, but she has slowed down now. She weighs almost as much as Kodi, but bodywise she is a little smaller. They are 11 months apart in age.

Brutus weighed 7.6# at 5months. Now at 5 1/2 months he weighs 8#. I think his weight is slowing down. He was gaining .4/week for awhile.
