    Our Max is 7 months and weighs 55lbs. He stands about 23 inches at the shoulders. Our vet guesses he will be 85-90 lbs when he is full grown.

    Boxers don't usually reach their full size until they are 2 years old. Even after that they can continue to fill out.

    I personally feel that my Amy girl has now filled out and has the complete Mature shape (and mental maturity) at about 3 years old. She has also more grey in her muzzle now and that real adult Boxer look. I think she is getting more gorgeous looking all the time.

    I think Bismarck became full grown at 4 years old. He was skinny before that age.

    JEB finally stopped growing a little before he turned 3. And he's steady at 85 pounds now (without an ounce of fat on him!) People think 85 pounds sounds big for a Boxer, but his parents were both large (80-100 pounds) and he was the largest pup in the litter. And he really doesn't look like a "big" dog.

    I thought Tyson was done growing at 18 months but he gained another 10 lbs by the time he was 2years. He now weighs 73 lbs and is 2 years and 4 months. He didn't get any taller after he was a little over a year old he just filled out. Pru is 13 1/2 months old and I think she is about as tall as she is going to get. She might fill out a little more but she looks stocky for her height now. If she fills out too much more she'll look like a body builder.
