I have a 5 month BLF and she is 50 pounds, I was wondering when they stop growing in size, I know they will add weight over a year or two, but how much taller will she get after 5 months? Is 50 pounds big or small for a 5 month old female?

Thanks

Usually by 9-10 months the growth plates in the bones will close and there will be no more skeletal growth (ie. they won't get any longer or taller) however they can continue to add weight ("fill out") for up to 24 months. There is some breed and within breed variation to these numbers but they are approximate. If your dog is 5 months I suspect she still has some more growing to do.
