The Pup is about 4 months old. Not too big, kind of skinny/gangly. Wondering how much taller she'll grow, and when to expect her to fill out a bit.

2 Years or so, some breeds are a bit different.

18 months full size, [95% in first year] 2 years for full weight is a pretty good guide.

2 years!!!!!!!!! I've got a 10month old yellow Lab that's 85 lbs already. I'm gonna need a bigger truck.

2 years is the norm. They can get a bit beefier as they get older due to inactivity, diet, etc.

Sort of like me.

I was told two years by friends but that was not the case. My dog will be 3 in October and he is still growing.
If his neck gets any bigger I will be forced to buy a new collar.

He/she is getting too fat then, cut down on the milkbones...

2 years is the earliest age they can get OFA certified (hips checked).

What breed? It varies alot. Small/medium breeds 8 months. Large breeds 1 year to 1 1/2. Are you talking height or weight? Large breeds may not achieve full weight for close to 2 years in males.

Mix Breed.

Supposely Black Lab and Terrier (what was reported to be the mother looked like an Argyle Terrier). Black with white blaze on chest and tip of back paw.

That being said, looks closer to the Beagle/Lab blends that came in the same time to the shelter--wonder if she got mis-labeled.

ETA: Was more interested in how tall she might get--I figured she'd fill out by 2 years.
