lol thats pretty crazy lexis 47lbs and and almost 14 months and to your question yes dogs have growth spurts and he should keep growing till 1 1/2-2 years old, thers no way to tell a final weight at this young of an age but the rule of thumb is to double the weight at 4 months so you should have a big boy on your hands

its will begin to slow from 10lbs a mnth to only a few here and there once you hit 8-9mnths.

my dog grew like a weed, then once 8.5ish mnths hit he slowed drastically

hes goin to slow down on the growin part at 8-9months, but then hes goin to start fillin out and and will gain a pound or two here and there until hes 1 1/2...he sure is a big dog
