When will she stop growing?

Well Miss Fiona is 9 months now and she doesn't seem to be growing much. They grow like weeds at first but she doesn't seem to be getting any taller or heavier. She is still the same weight as she was over a month ago (21kg/47lb). Is she likely to have a bit of a spurt or will she just be a very petite girl? She was one of the bigger pups in her litter, much bigger than her sisters so I thought she was going to be a bruiser! Petite is good though, makes her easier to pick up. She's also a bit on the skinny side, not enough to be worried about, she's just not very interested in eating her food. Scrambled eggs, peanut butter and treats she is definitely keen on, but her kibble does not excite her. I wish I could take or leave my food, and be a bit on the skinny side, she is clearly taking after her real mother who was actually quite petite rather than her skin mother, who is not...

They usually grow in height for a year or so and then they will continue to fill out until 2 years.

That is what I understand as well that once they reach 2 years that will be their adult size and weight. My Autumn is on the slim side and she is a finicky eater. But once she eats she is chowing down!

Thanks, we are probably just in a plateau then. She's been eating a bit more the last few days so we'll probably have a growth spurt soon.
