Worried my boy has plateaued

My little boy Agrippa will be 9 months in a few days. He's as sweet as can be and I wouldn't trade him for anything in the world but I'm worried he's going to be small. In the last 2 months he's only gone from 65-67 lbs. he's about 27 inches. He eats like a horse and I have him on the blue buffalo puppy for large breeds. His mom was 90 pounds and his dad about 95. Is it normal to plateau at this age?

All dobes grow at different rates, he may be done growing height wise and will just take time to fill out. 27" is within standard for a boy too.

In my experience a lot of boys get a majority of their height by 9-12 months and remain pretty lanky until closer to 20-36 months or 2-3 years old when they finish "bulking" up and get that last bit of height and substance.

P.s. we love! pictures, especially body shots

Way, way too early to be worried yet. At 9 months old my boy was just a few pounds more than yours at 72#. He is currently 4 years old, and kept on the lean side of show condition, at 90#.

I know they are so different every time I see other dobes at the park they're all such different sizes and shapes. Im very happy my boy is very proportionate, I was just worried that he went from gaining 6-7 pounds a month to maybe 1 pound a month

I also think he still has some growing to do. That being said, is it really a big deal? This breed wasn't meant to be huge anyways and a 68lb doberman is equally as intimidating as a 85lb dobe, in my opinion.

No it doesn't matter I would love him if he was 10 pounds. But I just want to make sure he's developing right

As long as they are healthy, we should weigh them by the size of their hearts, not the size of their bodies.

Why would that worry you? There is always a size variation, even among littermates. He's fine.
