At what age do male pups stop growing?

Just curious as to how much more Bear will grow? He just turned 6 months, and is about 1" taller than Bonnie(just over 8 months). He is not as long as her, but weighs approximately the same as her, maybe a little more. About 55-60 pounds. Our vet told us he would be big when full grown.
I was just really wondering when they stop growing? It seems like Bonnie is probably pretty close to her adult size, maybe a little more filling out, and I know in humans girls usually stop growing earlier than boys, I wonder if this is true with dogs? I don't have any experience with this!

I think Murphy was his full grown height by 1 to 1 1/2 years of age. He is tall for a golden and at 2 I think he has finally stopped filling out. At least I hope so!

Ike turned 1 in January. My vet and breeder say that he is done growing in height. He will continue over the next year to add muscle. He is 78 lbs and 24" at the shoulder.

According to Hooch Bama will top out at 78 pounds. He has 8 pounds to go and he is 7 months old. I hope it is true. He is a big boy. But not an inch of fat on him.

Both my boy's are big, there 88 and 75 pounds, Rusty is 1 year old and is now taller then Jack, but still very skinny. Considering he was only 30 pounds at age 7 month when we got him, he's really come a long way. I think he's done growing now just filling out

In my opinion it depends a lot on the lines. Some can be fully mature at 18 months other at 3 years old. Just depends on the dog.
