How big do you guess my lab/shelty/rotty/pitbull mix will get?

He's almost a year old (turns a year old march 7th) and he's already 75 pounds, and in good condition not to fat or lean. Im just wondering how big he will get, I know labs and rottys are known to mature slower. I think he might get up to 90 pounds, Im hopeing he stays around 75 pounds, but short of getting him to drink coffee and smoke cigarettes to stunt his growth, not much I can do about that.

anyways here's some fairly recent pictures, his name is skoll, he's a pretty awesome dog.

I don't know how big he will get but he is a beautiful dog. Probably at 1yr he'll be at full size, may gain more weight though. For good health don't let him get obesse, your vet should be able to tell you when he has reached a healthy weight.

He may fill out a bit, yet, but I agree that his skeleton is likely about full-grown now. Our dogs typically fill out by another 5 - 7 pounds once they're done growing, but they're also smaller so that might not be accurate estimate for Skoll.

He's a gorgeous boy, btw! :flirt: And shrews...you just gotta love their chutzpah, don't you? :laughing:

im thinking he might get a tiny bit taller and longer in the next couple of months, but im wondering how much he will fill out, ive seen some dogs put on a good 10 or 15 pounds between a year and 2 years.

He should stay the same height but as others will fill out, give the dog a cappuccino maybe skip the ciggies... ROFL
