Weight Gain

I am just curious if any one can give me some advise if this is normal. Phoebe is now seven months and is weighing 60 lbs. She was gaining weight at a steady pace in the past three weeks, I have taken her off Blue Buffalo Wilderness Puppy food three feedings a day and put her on Blue Buffalo Basic grain free. I have also cut her meals from three times a day to twice a day but still feeding her the same amount. She has not put on any weight in the past three weeks. This is the first time I own this breed and not very familiar with their growth and development pattern. I think she looks great she is 18 inches at the withers just wondering if that is pretty much going to be her weight and height.

Weight Gain

Cain kinda stopped gaining around then too. Your dog can grown through about 2 years so she may or may not gain any. I haven't weighed in a while so not sure if Cain has gained any or not but he's 11 months and at 9 was 60lbs. (Although he feels like 100 lol!)

They grow up for the first year and out for about 2 years after that. She may have hit the end of her growth spurt for now, but at 7 months she is not done growing yet. Just watch her weight and don't let her get fat. Adjust her kibble intake as needed. She's a pretty girl already, she is going to be amazing when she is full grown.

Hard to say but she's still young, should fill out some and probably add a small amount of height. Just make sure to keep her lean, you want to see the hint of a couple ribs and a nice waist and tuck, most dogs are kept way overweight, this breed has a lot of hips/knee/ccl injuries in poorly bred dogs so best to keep them as thin as possible.
