Question our almost 6 month old male is probably a little over 50 pounds and is 25 inches tall. I was wondering what is the normal and when he will start to grow again maybe I just don't see it cuz I'm with him everyday and just want to make sure he's in the right range ?

Lol they do so then we are probably worrying for no reason lol I guess they'd be right on track then ?

At 6 months, they are not done growing in height - you will see a lot of growth in the next 3 months. After that, it will mainly be filling out and maturing.... with maybe a little bit of height.

He is roughly 27".  But that's measuring him in the a.m. When there is no chance of sitting still lol :)

Different lines will grow at different paces - so it would be very hard to say if where they are at is normal for their line. But from the information given, they sound pretty normal. Neither puppy sounds like they are going to be overly big dogs - and that is a good thing.

yes fitzmar is right the bigger they are the more health issues they have and life span is shorter
