Breed Sizes

What size will I grow to be? Read the chart below, to see how big your little puppy will get, over the course of a lifetime. Don't forget that puppies have the biggest growth spurt during their first six months of life. During these early months, they grow close to their adult size, but they do keep growing (much more slowly, filling out a bit) until they reach about 2 years old.
