New Aussiedoodle owner seeking growth and size information

Hi all,

I am a new Aussiedoodle owner and her name is Coco. Hey dad is a 17lb poodle and mom is a 20lb Australian Shepherd. Because she is a girl, I'm guessing she will come in that low end and be around 17lb when fully grown. We got her 2 weeks ago and she was only 3.5 lbs but in just that time, she is now 5.5lbs. Seems like quite a bit of growth. My question is this.. When will she be fully grown?

Also, I've been trying to find a size reference to see how big a 17lb dog would look. Does anyone have a picture of a dog (preferably a doodle cross) that is 17 lbs? And next to a person or something for a good size reference?

Thank you for your time,

Twenty pounds is on the low end for an Aussie, so don't be too surprised if your pup winds up larger, as crossed/mixed breeds don't always reflect their parents in size if their parents are outliers for the breeds.
I don't have too many pictures of him, but this was my 22 pound Standard Rat Terrier next to my 48 pound mutt.
