Menolly is only 4 1/2 months old and already weighs 15 lbs and stands 12 inches high.
Since she still has a few months of growing left, I'm wondering how much bigger she's going to get? Her sire was 12 3/4 inches tall, and I think her dam was even shorter.

Maggie grew until she was almost a year. She is a tall beagle at just over 15 inches. I think that even though Menolly's parents are small she can be taller.

Menolly can be taller than her parents. I'm putting my money on 14-15 inches. Not sure why, that's my feeling


In our case, Chloe stopped growing tall (and on any other direction for that matter
) at about 8-9 months of age.

I think Menolly is going to be a big girl. That's one of the things I noticed right off in her pictures...she's tall for 4 months!

My previous beagle Molly grew until she was about a year and a half, then stopped at about 15 inches and 30 lbs.

I think Maggie is going to be a little squirt. She's about 12 inches and only weighs 16 lbs...and she's 8 months old. It will be interesting to see!

Pups can continue growing till 8-9 months old - usually they've achieved their adult height by then. Menolly may just be one of those pups who has LONG legs - like my Bella, she was a little girl - but leggy - we called her Wilt because she liked to jump! She's still small - about 12 1/2 inches (if that) and less than 20#, both of her parents are small. Bella's mom is a tiny little girl - I don't think she's even 11 tall and has VERY short little legs - and her dad is about 12 1/2 inches - and 20#. However, you can't ALWAYS tell by the parents how big the pups will be.
JoJo's mom was a tiny little petite beagle lady, but her mom's full brother (not littermate but full brother) is the magnificent beagle on my avatar. He is 18 and about 53#. JoJo's pups are mostly average to small. Jack is built more like his grandsire - a more sturdy beagle, not tall, but sturdy - while Joe is very much like his grandma, Spotty, probably about 20-22# and trimmer tho they were littermates, Jack was always bigger than Joe. Angel is pretty small - probably about 12 1/2 and 18-20#. They all have the same sire.
She should achieve her full height by about 9 months, but may fill out after that.
Here's my leggy Bella Boo when she was about 6 months old. She looked bigger because of those long legs!

Daisy was and still is very leggy She is almost 10 months old and is about 26.6lbs now. The last time I checked she was 13 or 14 tall. She seems to be filling out now more than growing up and is finally starting to grow into her legs.
