When Will My Puppy Stop Growing?

Category Advice

I have a beautiful Siberian husky/German shepherd mix named Tippy. I was just wondering at what age will she stop growing. She is 9 and a half months old. Thanks.

It can vary; but like the old Puppy Chow commercial used to say, "puppy chow for a full year, till she's full grown". Probably not so much the last 3 months of the first year; but she's still growing.

She is gorgeous, by the way.

What a beauty! I have had large dogs all my life and generally they grow until about 2 years of age. My dad used to say they don't get a brain until 2 or 3. LOL Now is the time for training, be consistent. Good luck! P

We adopted a rescued 1 year old pit, and he grew until age 2. He was starving at age 1, weighing 19 lbs., and by age 2, a slender 60+ pounds thanks to Nutra Pet and Hill's Science Diet. I guess they grow taller until 2, then fill out.

My first dog, who I got when I was 2, was named Tippy! From what I've read, puppies (and kittens) aren't considered adults and full-grown until they are 2.

Three years for all large breeds. The seals in the bone ends are the indicator, same as in horses.

Thanks for all your help. I'm glad she still has some growing left! I also have a St. Bernard puppy, she is 8 months old. Her name is Dixie. I rescued her. Her original owners got her as a 8 week old puppy, and didn't relize how much she would end up eating as a growing puppy. They were only feeding her 2 cups of food a day, wich she gobbles up in like 2 seconds. I got her 3 weeks ago. She still has some catching up to do on her weight, but she is looking much healthier. She is currently eating 4 pounds of food a day!

Please tell me what the breed is at the right top of this page? My pup looks exactly like that dog! Her mom was a white Shepherd as far as we know. Father was a fence jumper. Lol. She actually runs like a deer and has legs and feet like one. She talks just like Scooby Doo. She is 7 1/2 months.

Thank you for any info. =)
