Default growing and growing

about what age do dogs generallly stop growing?

i know some of it depends on their breed or something like that. yoshi's a terrier/golden mix and i have no idea. i didn't think she'd grown that much but i weighed her yesterday and she's a lot taller/weighs a lot more than i thought

I think the smaller dogs take less time to be full grown. The bigger 2-3 yrs. My Chihuahua was pretty much full grown at about 6 months, maybe just a tad more filling out. My Dobeman was about as tall as he'd get at about 10 months or a year, but has been filling out ever since. He's 2 now and he will probably continue muscling up a little more over the next 1/2 yr. or even a little longer. They vary a little bit.

Generally full maturation (physically and mentally) happens at about 2.5years. Every puppy's rate of growth is different so it;s hard to say an average.
