Rufus is 7 months old, weights 38 pounds and is 23 inches tall. Would you say that he is going to be on the small side or average for a Standard.

I'd be interested in the answer to this as well. I have a female standard who will be 5 months old this coming week. I measured her today as 21 inches at the withers and 32 lbs. Is there some way to predict approximately how big she'll be when she's full grown?

Max was 32 pounds at 5.5 mos when we got him. At 7 mos he was 50 pounds. I'll have to weigh him again. The vet didn't think he would go past 50 but I thought he was wrong. I'd guess he's about 55 now. Will weigh and measure him later today and let y'all know.

Its hard to tell but ginger leveled off at 40-43 lbs at a year and has stayed like that. Just right! for me! lol

How tall are Max and Ginger? I've been looking for growth charts on the internet but I can only find them for toy and mini poodles. I'm wondering if Murphy's a little too heavy for her height. But if she's likely to get quite a bit taller, that would probably even out over time.

If I am doing it correctly Ginger and Teddy are both 24". She weighs from 40-43 and he is overweight at 52-55.

Our puppy is small- but I am fine with it! He is growing faster lately, though. I don't know what he weighs, but at five months old, he's not as large as my male Whippets (who are 21 inches and about 35-40 pounds).
