When does a staffy stop growing?

Post by 7643919 on Sat May 28 2011, 12:37

Hey i was just wondering when they actually stop growing, because my staffy Bella is just over 1 year old now and hasnt seem to have been growing at all lately (by growing i mean bulking up) im pretty sure she is small because when my mums friends see her they are all like "OMG she is sooo small" but anyway back to the point, she is in the breed standard for height and im not sure how much she weighs because my scales are stuffed. But i have heard from almost everyone that staffys fill out until like 18 months to 3 years, i have also heard from alot of people that once they stop growing height wise they will seem like they arnt growing any more and then at about 15 months they will start to gain alot of muscle and get really bulky? is this true.

Just so you know i honestly dont care how big she is (as long as it doesnt effect her health).

i think it is true, that they start getting more muscle after 1 year until they get to three

They reach their full height at about 12 - 18 months, but they will continue to widen, or 'bulk out' until they are fully mature, which can be as early as 2 years old or as late as 3 years old - they're all different!

If you have seen her parents, you will have a reasonable idea as to how 'big' she will get when she is full grown.

The biggest staffy litter I know of is 10 pups. Poor mum, it was her first litter too.

Hi & welcome.

Wow, she's a big 'un! The standard sets an outside limit (adult) as 41cm & 17 kilos!
