    what age?

    Advertisements
    At what age is a dog considered fully grown? Does it depend on the breed? I have a boxer and he will be a year old next month...I am wondering if he will be growing much more or not?

    It does depend on the breed. I think his growth plates are probably closed down now so he shouldn't gain any more in height or length of body. He will body out more (spring of rib) and how much will depend upon if he is neutered or not.

    Yes it depends on the breed. Larger breed dogs can grow for up to two years. He'll probably be fully grown by a year old and then fill out but I think I read somewhere that Boxers can grow up to two years since they are considered a large breed. I don't think Apollo grew much more after a year old though.

    I think he is probably already bigger then I think he is or see him as (if that makes sense). He seems big to others, but I guess since I am with him everyday he just still seems like that little baby to me? *lol*

    Probably close to 2 years old. I just stopped feeding our lab "puppy" food and he's 19 months old.

    I think around 2 i call them fully grown. Same with cats- they still seem to grow until they are around 2.
