    DefaultHow big will my lab get?

    Just curious if anyone might have an educated guess! :educated: She's 13 months old and currently weighs about 58. She's 15 inches around the neck, 27 chest and 18 tummy. Her momma weighed about 70 and her daddy about 80.

    At 13 months, she's pretty much done growing. She might gain another inch or so in height, and a pound or two more, but the majority of her growing is done.

    I have to disagree a bit. It depends on the lines. My boy gained about 10-15 pounds from 15mo - 4 years of age when he was mature.
    My Lily gained about 10lbs from that age until 3. She also gained some girth from last year to this year. By about 2 inches.
    Rhumba is 17 months and I have not had her on the scale in a while but at 13 she was about 63lbs. By the time she is 3 I suspect she will be in the 70's. Lily, even though she does not look like it, is about 75lbs.
    Lily also gained about an inch in height between 13-16 months.

    So it all really depends. Sometimes littermates way outgrow the others and even their parents. Other times you get ones who are much smaller.
    I do not consider a Lab done growing until 3-4.

    For measuring, we usually measure HEIGHT. From the withers (shoulder blades) to the floor/feet.

    My experience is most dogs by 13 months are usually as tall as they will be give an inch or so. Mine always fill out 10-15 pounds in that last year or so though. By the time the dog is 2 or 3, that's what you will have as an adult dog.
