7 Months Old - Update & Weight/Size Question

I posted a few months back regarding my puppy, Haku. A lot has happened since then and I'd like to share that we Embarked him. I'll include his results in the images in this post. Mostly Siberian Husky with some German Shepherd and suspected Malamute!
He's been through intermediate level training classes and we're working on getting our CGC in a few weeks! He could not be a better behaved dog.. Well, except that adolescence has his focus outside a bit iffy--but we're working on that.
He's exceedingly polite, people, dog, and small animal friendly. Doesn't chase, just watches, when small animals skitter around. He can hold a stay like nobody's business and his recall is excellent. SUPER proud of him! (If you couldn't tell.)
Alright, alright.. Now that the brag is done, I have a question that maybe y'all can help me with some personal experience or insights. Haku's estimated adult weight by the vet WAS 50-60lbs.. Then the next visit she updated it to 60lbs-ish. He's now just turned 7 months old and is at 48lbs. Is it likely that he's going to grow larger than 60lbs? I can't imagine he'll only gain 10lbs between 7 months and 24 months. Especially because he is intact and I intend to keep him that way.
Anyway, here's a few updated photos of my happy boy as well as his Embark results:

Dogs tend to grow up until around a year and then fill out the year after that. Each line is different. Some grow faster than others and some grown slower. He could go 60-65 pounds, especially if this particular line is a little slow to grow and fill out. GSD and Mals are larger breed dogs and tend to grow a bit slower so I wouldn't be surprised to see continued growth for a while even with as little amounts as test to be in him.
Neutering will only affect size if you were to neuter too early. Then your dog would lack the correct amount of hormones to close the growth plates on time and thus can lead to a dog growing larger than expected. If a dog is intact or neutered at the proper time then the growth will proceed as normal and end when it should.
