My Vizsla is huge!

My 18 month old male Vizsla Dawkins is huge. He is already 27 inches and last time I weighed him in June he was 75 lbs. When do they stop growing? Does anyone else have a big Vizsla?

Wow At 10mths our Kaylee is 22 inches and almost 40lbs. Her mom was small though so I'm thinking she takes after her. I'm not sure when they stop growing.

My 13 mo. neutered V. is 50 pounds and almost 26 in. tall. When do they stop growing? He looks good, not fat, but lean.

Re: My Vizsla is huge!

My guy is turning 8 months old this week.

He is 25 inches tall at the shoulder and 29 inches wide at the chest. We have not weighed him in almost 2 months, but last reading was 53 pounds.

Miles finally topped off at 75 lbs, also right around 18 months. Hopefully Dawkins has hit his upper threshold, I know Miles tends to think he is still a littly guy who can crawl into anyones lap. This is him with my niece and nephew, they are 4 and 2 respectively.

I sense a disturbance in the force...something naughty is being done.

Ruby's 22 inch and 49lb (5 year old), Elvis is 26 inch and 60lb at 19 months, that's big enough for me as they're both working dogs and I'd hate to see more poundage hammering their joints when they're working. Both mine seemed to finish growing at about 16 months I reckon.

Re: My Vizsla is huge!

Our guy has been raw fed since we took him home at 8 weeks.

Do you think that would have any impact onto his larger than usual size?

I think it's probably more related to genetics than feeding.
