    The growth rate of boxer puppies varies, some reach their adult height by 7 months, and others not until 14 months. You can be certain that by 14 months she'll be done growing upwards. :)

    After she's gotten as tall as she's going to be, she will start filling out and looking more like an adult boxer rather than a giant puppy. :) The "filling out" is a very slow phase and usually lasts until about 2 years old or more.

    They say with Boxers:

    They grow up the first year.....
    Then grow out the second........

    But their brains stay like puppies forever!

    Raine will be 16 months Nov. 1st. She has grown a full inch (at the withers) since she was 13.5 months (or the past 2.5 months). She had a bit of a growth spurt recently.
    She is all legs and looks sort of dainty since she put on that extra inch in height. She is 24.5 inches. I swear sometimes she will topple over!
    Her weight seems to have repositioned a bit and she seems top-heavy at 50 pounds. Now the filling out begins....or at least I hope so.
    I am not totally convinced that she won't add another 1/2 inch-ish in height. There is still a bit of a lump just at the middle of both front legs that needs to flatten out.

    hehe. Charlie grew upwards until he was about a year and half. Then he started growing outwards and that stopped at about 2 and half or so. He is 3 now and hasn't grown in either direction for a while. :)
