Thank you in advance for my foolish question
Im my opinion a dog is really a puppy until 2 yrs of age. Thats also why female dogs should not be bred any earlier then 2 yrs. They are still developing and not yet an adult till then. I believe during the 1-2 yr period is when the dog really begins to mature. They begin to loose puppy look and produce mussle ....they pretty much fill in during this period.
Your girl should grow some more. It may not be much but she's still very young. I usually expect growing in height to end soon after they turn a year. However, some lines have a tendacy to mature slower then other's.
I don't know if that helps you any but thats my experience with growth in dogs.
