Default What age do they stop growing...

Bella is 8 months now and she weighs 50lbs. Everytime I turn around I have to loosen her collar again because its gotten tight. At about what age do they stop growing.

Most common around 18-24 mo. But for a boxer they start to gain more mass over 2 years.

Oh dear......

I found Allie (2 1/2 yrs) has gained more mass - I was worried she was just getting fat. She is not a big eater at all. Now that explains it. Maggie is 7 mos now, and is taller than Allie and slender. My neighbor says she looks like a cow standing because she puts her feet further apart than her chest is wide. I've been hoping her chest would get wider.

This has been asked and answered many times..Alll Boxers, all dogs for that matter grow at different rates, but Boxers will reach their adult height between 18-24 mos.The chest will start dropping and you will see more signs of maturity in the face..Flick's line is a very slow growing line, hence the reason it's taking so long for his ears to stand..At that point, they will start to fill out, which generally will take another year..You can pretty much figure by the age of 3, they have achieved their "adult" look
