OK, guys, so you think she's still growing at this point (almost 8 mths old)?

I'm asking because the "large breed" formulas indicate they're for pups that will be 50lbs or more at maturity, but I don't know if she's going to get that big. Ahh, the joy of mutts - a real crap shoot as to what you can expect for an end result! I'll have to take a close-up pic of the fur on her back to show you guys. She has the wierdest fur I've ever seen on a dog! I can't wait to see what she'll look like as an adult!

Yeah, I'm very worried about things like hip dysplasia and such. A friend has a 4yr old GSD who was diagnosed with hd - so sad. My neighbor's new 6yr old Chocolate Lab has arthritis in one of his front legs. So young to be having these problems! I'd be mortified if I found out that something I did to her now caused these issues a few years down the road!!
