ANEMICinsomniac: Until when will a standard dachshund stop growing?
I really need to know 'cause I own a standard dachshund puppy that just turned 8 months. I heard that it would stop growing at 8 months so I just want to make sure.

On the contrary dachshunds do NOT stop growing at 8 months by any means. My 1 year old 5 month doxie is still growing and he's 23lbs and lean as can be.
My 5 month old dachshund is 10.2lbs super skinny and is growing super fast right now.
Doxies slow down considerably around 8 months of age but can continue to grow up to 2 years, especially standards.
Our 1 year 5 month doxie grew 8lbs since he was 9 months old so far and hes still growing and is in perfect health lean as can be and strong as an ox.

When a dog stops growing, it usually depends on the breed. When a dog stops growing, it reaches its genetic maturity. Usually, a dog reaches full growth-physical wise- when they are 12-18 months age, it varies from dog to dog but this is an average dog I am talking about. A dog usually doesn't reach maturity-mental wise-until they are 18-24 months old. That is why you should not breed a girl dog on their first heat, because they are not physically mature enough.

Regardless of breed 12month/1year is the offical age dogs stop growing

At a year old she will be fully grown (even just before that), over the following year expect her to gain a small amount of weight... filling out/bulking out. She shouldn't grow too much in the next 6 months, not a huge noticeable amount anyway
Answer by Sir Huchalot
Smaller dogs tend to stop growing before they are a year old so don't expect her to grow much more. She may bulk up a little or put on a little weight but her height won't increase much.
Larger breeds don't stop growing until they are around two years old.
