Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

While on the hunt for the neighbors dog that went missing we stumbled across this guy in a local kill shelter. He was an owner surrender due to being too timid, supposedly around 2.5 years old. He is also supposedly a Malamute/Lab mix but he's lucky if he weighs 40lbs. I got to wondering if perhaps the previous owners got in over their head with a puppy and then lied about its age thinking that would help it get adopted. I don't know how to tell if his growth plates are still open to know if he will get bigger and could really use some advice on how to check, or if anyone can tell anything from the only picture I have of him standing. He acts like a puppy and the timidness that the previous owner talked of is nowhere to be seen. We are thinking of taking him to potentially foster or maybe keep since we have a good setup to keep he and Kenzi separated, but if we do look to find him a new home it would be nice to have a better idea on if he will get bigger.

But he looks like he could be full grown to me.

Wow, thanks for the info Elise! I thought our puppy might have been done growing, but he has two very prominent bumps still. Ah well, big puppy, here we come!

I vaguely remember reading that when it was first posted in that thread but had no idea where it was, so thanks. Hmm...if he really is as big as he's going to get that leads me to wonder what his mix actually is. I can plainly see the lab, but he can't be malamute if he's going to stay this small. He has such thick fur like the mal though.

It is possible for him to stay the size of a lab, my mom has a beagle border collie mix, and he is the size of the beagle with the color of a border collie

I don't guess I've ever seen a lab only weigh in at about 40 lbs. Most are 60+. My old male mutt had several large dogs mixed with him and then pitt bull and he totally took after the much smaller pitt, despite having st. bernard in him. A cutie is a cutie, though, whether large or small, and he's just too cute to get put down.
