Hello everyone,
I really love animals. Currently I have a dog, so far I have raised it for half a year. Compared to when it first bought it, it was much taller. I don't know if it will stop growing taller? And if so, when? Because I don't want it to be too tall.
Thanks everyone.

Depends on the breed. Smaller dogs tend to reach their adult height at a younger age, while larger dogs tend to reach their adult height later. All dogs tend to fill out and gain mass even after they reach their adult height.

You cannot stop growth. If the dog is altered young, they tend to grow taller because the Growth Plates do not close as early.

Love and accept your dog for whatever he/she is. You cannot control growth.

Generally speaking medium to large dogs will reach their adult height around a year old. Small breeds can get their adult height as young as 6 months and giant breeds can take up to 2 years. Filling out is a different story.

Of course, no matter what happens, I will love my dog.
