    I haven't been able to find a chart that shows the average growth in terms of height at withers of a developing lab pupper - full grown doggo.

    So i'm going to measure Rusty as he grows but unfortunately I didn't start sooner as he is 15 weeks already.

    OP at full-grown (4 years) is 24 Inches at the withers.
    Buddy at full-grown (8 years) was :( 22 Inches at the withers.

    Rusty at 15 weeks is 17 Inches at the withers.

    I know that it can be difficult to be precise with measuring this, if you don't train a standing stay, so I understand why the information is less available but if you do have a pupper or a doggo withers height please can you let me know?

    I'm sure you're not interested in crossbreeds but my 2 year old lab X collie is 63cm ( 25 inches) at withers and 30.25kg (66 lbs).

    Just thought I'd put it out there in case anyone was thinking (as I did) that a collie cross would result in a smaller dog.

    I too have a lab x collie not sure height but weight at 8.5mths is 29kg. He is more lab than collie. I will check height later.

    Loki was about 26 - 27kg at that age so I think you're going to have a big dog there!

    I had him neutered at 10 months old which I think was too early and may have contributed to his long legs. He's long and deep chested too so I think he probably was always going to be a big lad.
