        I wonder why people say that Brutus is small for being 12 months he is 33" and 125lbs oh well

        To see Brutus

            What is the definition of "full grown"? On the charts up to 1 year is listed then full grown--so at 23 months almost 2 would I consider him to be full grown?

              No. He will likely continue to add bulk and muscle- fill out his frame. Of course each one is different, but the rule of thumb is they grow up until 2, then out until 3. My boyu is approaching 4, and I think he looks significantly different in the last year and a half or 2.

                Found another Great Dane growth chart here. The numbers look about the same, so I'm glad to see that their growth curve hasn't changed drastically in the last decade or so.

                  Unfortunately that site has quite a bit of misinformation on it The original chart was done and maintained by a very, experienced , knowledgable breeder/owner and person very up to date and informed on genetics and growth. The numbers should not change.. things should remain relatively the same in a well bred Dane.
