Our boxer is one year old, 21 inches and 50+ pounds.  How much more should I expect her to grow if at all?  I have read some online sources saying that boxers are done growing up at one, and basically just bulk up for the next two years.  Others say that they are still growing between years 1 and 2 and during year 3 they start bulking up.  What do you guys think?

One more thing I forgot to write.  The reason I ask is that Maggie's paws are huge, and still look a little too big for her body.

The breed standard for Adult males is 23 to 25 inches; females 21 1/2 to 23 1/2 inches at the withers. Of course this can vary from dog to dog. It sounds like she is right on track with her height and weight. She may grow up a tiny bit more, but usually they are done by a year to a year and a half and then they will begin to fill out. My female is right at 23 inches and weighs 62 lbs. She will be 2 next month. She will grow into those paws!  :winkle:
