    Dozer is almost a year old and he is 75lbs. I forget ... at what age do they stop typically growing?

    He probably has most if not all of his height. Over the next 6-9 months he will broaden as he develops his muscle and make bone structure. Not sue what it willmean on his weight, so much depends on his food intake/exercise regiment, but if he is not heavy, he will add to his weight from the additional muscle and bone tissue.

    Thanks! I knew all that, but my brain was just not processing it for some reason. He's a really good height and build. Weight wise, I doubt there will be any unnecessary fat added; on top of walks with me and playing he spends an hour every morning on the treadmill ... if I forget he pesters me about it. LOL

    Me thinks Dozer is a very pretty boy, and we need more pictures, Sam.

    Agreed. When both Tal and Barney were about a year old, each was his full adult height. Between 1 and 2 years, each has broadened out and filled out a bit. I try to keep Tal's weight no more then 90 lbs and Barney at 60 lbs. Barney is a lab mixl; Tal is full blood lab.

    I think with Labs we say they aren't done growing until about 2 years, but like Ed said, past the first year they are just kind of filling out. A lot of them are very leggy and long at 1 yr and then fill out until they are two.

    More pics, please!!
