Growth Experiences

Rose will be 5 months on Nov 7th. I took her to the vet today. And she is at 46.5 lbs.
I cannot find anything on the web as far as the growth trend. Will she slow down in her growth? I agree that while she looks like a hound dog with the long legs and long ears she may appear to some as skinny but I rather have her skinny than chubby.
Does anyone else remember where their puppies were at 5 months and where they ended up to be at? Everyone says that she will be a big girl. I am just not so sure.

I'm anxious to see your responses since I wanted to Get info about chester. Chester is 4 months and is weighing 24 pounds the vet thinks he will be hitting his growth spurt really soon. Like with your pup I get the " he's going to be huge" or " look how big his paws are" but he's not chubby he's just long. You can't see his ribs but he also doesn't have fat hanging from him so personally I like his size just like I like your girls size.

Max weighed 30 pounds at 11 weeks, 54 at 4 months, 75 at 5 months and 99 at 8 months. Max is bigger than the average Golden, however, the ages at which he experienced his growth spurts I think is probably pretty typical.

That is a big 6 month old puppy... The female standard is 55-65 lbs full grown. And they grow until two years.
