Cosy stopped growing about 7-8 months, but that's not always the case. She weighs 3.5 lbs

Toy stopped growing about 10 months I think. She's almost 5 lbs but should be 5.5 if she'd eat!

Please buy from reputable
exhibitor breeders or Rescue.

I always heard the bigger the dog the longer it takes them to reach their final adult size, and I heard with small breeds they stop growing between 8 and 12 months. I have no idea if it's true or not!

I don't know when Wilson stopped growing, I didn't get him until he was 18 months old.

I think Scooby reached his ideal size at around 12 months, any weight gain he made after that was just excess, a result of daddy spoiling him with tidbits I now have him on a strict intake and he is 11.6lb but he did go up to 12lb and I was shocked. He is three and I want to at least get him back to under 11lb for his own sake.
Koko is now 6 months and weighs 4.3lbs and has maintained that weight now for over 2 weeks, either he has reached his full weight or he may grow a little more but I have noticed he isn't eating as much as he did while growing from 3 months. Both his parents are 4lb and 4lb repectively so he may remain at this weight and size, I hope so cos he is perfect for us and just adorable and cute

Zoey was over 2 yrs old when she stopped. Every time she got weighed she gained an ounce! I kept telling her if she got over 5 lbs I would put her on a diet, then it was over 6 lbs and now it's over 7 lbs! The last time she was weighed she was 6lb 10oz. So I think she's done. She's almost 3 1/2 now so she should be! No, I never put her on a diet-haha. But if she gets over 7 lbs...........!!!

Indy was 2 years old on Dec. 13 th and is still growing slowly We were hoping he would make the 4 lb. mark and fill out and he finally did at almost 2 years old! He has little spurts of growth every now and then, now we are hoping to hit the 5 lb. mark

Abbey grew until about 8 -9 months. Then she just filled out & put on about another 1/2 to 1 lb. But length & height wise, was done at 8 months.

I think Bogie kept growing till he was well over a year. He is now 2 1/2. About 6 months ago, I had to buy new harnesses and clothes. He was a xsmall, now he is a small. He is something over 7 pounds, but not at all overweight. At 3 months he weighed in at 3 pounds.
