Cinnamon stopped growing at 6 months.

Luna is 5 months so I'm thinking she'll reach her full growth in a few weeks.

Strider went from 30" at 3 years old (I thought he was done) to 31" at 4 years. One of the lines behind him is known for being slow maturers, but that was still really surprising. It was kind of surreal because for a while Kaia was taller than him, then one day I noticed they were somehow the same height.

I think Kaia at 3 is done with her height. She hit 31" at 18 months and has been ever since. Her sire is from fast maturing lines though. They tend to show well because they don't go through the adolescent ganglies as bad as some zoi lines. Her conformation has always been very "together".

Frag quite growing UP at about 9 months. He quite growing OUT at about 2.5 years. Now at three his body shape is consistent. He's a GSD.

Sir was adopted at about a year old. He hasn't gotten any taller, or started filling out yet. Maybe soon... I know it has to happen. XD He's an APBTx

Recon is almost 7 months old and is still growing UP slowly. He's about there, though. He won't have a lot of growing OUT to do and will probably be mature weight by 1-1.5 years. He's a BC

This is about what it was for Harlow as well. She's turning three this year, and she now seems to be holding pretty steady to her build.

Georgie and Auggie were I think about 6 months when they were done. Payton was closer to 8 months. I would have liked him to have stopped sooner, LOL. SHRINK PUPPY SHRINK.
If he's supposed to fill out he hasn't done it yet and he'll be two in May. It would be nice if he suddenly magically filled out. =P He has a case of the chronic skinnies.

The Shibas were 3-4 months, Gage was closer to 2-2.5 years, Diesel was grown when we got him and Bristol had been the same size since about 8-9 months.

Cara quit growing up right around six months old, she's still maturing in other areas though. Really in the last six months I've noticed her looking more mature, and she's an aussie of course.

Cali's facial structure has always been pretty consistent (petite/feminine) so aside from her face elongating a tiny bit, that was really the only difference I noted. Plus, of course, an extra two and a half pounds since we brought her home and her coat seemed to hit it's peak at maybe a year and a half, although sometimes it looks like it's growing. I sometimes wish her tail fur was shorter, it's not convenient to have a tail dragging on the ground when there's mud all over the place.

I'd cap the majority of her growth at six/seven months, we got her spayed at six months. (I had wanted to get her spayed at the year mark but since she's a small dog, I had read they get their first heat around six/seven months)

The two and a half year old papillon. Crazy. Social butterfly. Clever.

Webster was full grown when I got him at 10 months. He looks pretty much the same and weighs the same as he did then.

Kim I honestly can't seemed like she just kept growing and growing forever but that's probably because we were told she would top out around 25lbs...

Mira grew vertically until she was about 12-14 months but didn't really finish filling out til she was about 3yrs. She's still physically maturing a bit I think.

Gus grew strangely. When we got him he looked like this, long and very low, about 3 months old (We didn't know his birthday at that point, so the "4 months" was a total guess, his correct birthday was 12/23/84) and I think he was about 17 pounds:

By the time he was 6 months old, he was the same length as my 96 pound yellow Lab. Then came the height growth, from 6 months to about a year, when he ended up about 23" at the shoulder, and a very skinny 40-45 or so pounds. He was so skinny at that point I could put my hand across his "waist" and grip it like a 2x4. Then at about 15 months, the muscles came, all of a sudden. It was like he was on steroids, he was suddenly 60, then 70, and topping out at 75 pounds at about 2 years. He looks fat in this pic, but he was hard as a rock, and part of what you see is very loose skin. his "wrists" are about the size of a woman's wrist. You can't tell from this pic that his head is VERY big and wide. I could and did put my hand in his mouth up to my wrist (He liked to suck on my hands for some reason), and he could close his mouth almost completely with my hand between his teeth and my fingers and palm was barely touching them, and I wasn't touching the back of his mouth. Since it appears that jaw width determines bite power, he had a very powerful bite "Finger amputatin' teeth", as a couple of vets called it. He's about 2.5 in the pic, as the Lab with him, Joe died about 6 months after the pic was taken.
