Reprobate Knucklehead: How long will a Cane Corso continue to grow?
My bro's Cane Corso is a monster, and only 10 months old! It's as big as his teenagers! She's cut and silly and all, but DAMN!
When will this beast stop growing?

Larger dogs tend to fully mature by 2-3 years old. Generally, the dog will grow upwards til somewhere between 12 and 18 months and then fill out between 18 months and 2 years old.
Answer by jessica g
She should be done growing now. She will fill out for another couple months so she will gain more weight but she shouldn't get any taller.

Cane Corso’s grow rapidly until they’re a year old, and then for the next 6 months they will continue to slowly* grow in height, and then grow in width until they are 2 years old… After that they may continue to gain a few pounds but nothing noticable.
My female Cane Corso is a year old, she’s veryyy tall but hasn’t packed on weight width-wise yet.. I can already see her begining to though.
CC’s are VERY slow growers after the first year, so it won’t be too noticable.
There is only one breed, Cane Corso, AKA Italian Mastiff… But within that breed you have several different styles that breeders are striving to produce, which is why one cane corso may look very different from the next in the face and snout area… All builds should be the same though.
It can get confusing, there’s A LOT of politics about the breed.
They’re my favorite :]
Jessica G. has NO clue what she is talking about, probably doesn’t even know what a CC is…

I have a 7 1/2 month old female and she is about 25 inches and 97 pounds! We knew she was going to be big when we met the parents at the breeder. Dad was about 160 and mom was about 140!

My last Cain coral male was 215 lbs at the vet when standing up on back legs was taller than me at 5'11 vet said technically he was overweight but was just insanely large for his breed and was in the best shape he had ever seen in this breed. I now have a pup who will be 18 months on the 11th of this month he is right at 24 inches and about 140 to 145 now they were/Are both beautiful beast
Answer by Ferdi
I agree, it does not sound like Jessica G knows what she’s talking about.
My cane corso is now 80lbs at 10 months and 25inches. Dad is 150 and 30inches but mom is 25inches and 93lbs.
1, How much taller, if any, will she be at 12 months and guestimate on weight.
2. Final guestimate on height and weight?
Answer by BlackShadowCaneCorso
Usually after a year they won't get much more in the way of height but they will start to fill out. Some lines are slow to fill out and may take up to 2 years and some are fast and will be done by 18 months to 2 years. So you could have a few more months of growth yet.
