    At what age is a dog considered full grown

    My dog is 14 months old and I swear in the last month she has gotten taller and longer. She used to not be able to reach up on the counter tops now she sticks her head and paws up there.



    I always thought they reached their mature weight and height by a year?


    she hasn't gained any weight or anthing just seemed to get a bit taller and longer.

    Thanks

    Depends on the dog/breed/size class. Anywhere from 6 months to 36 months.

    The larger the dog the longer it takes them to mature.
    In my breed 3 years sounds about right before you have a fully mature dog.

    I have to agree with everyone...it all depends on the breed...Since you have a mix breed....well Forest Gump said it best..."Life is like a box of chocolats...you never know what your gunna get"...but take away life and put in mix breed dogs!!!
