For those of you who've had their hounds from puppyhood to old age, how long did it take them to reach their full adult size? We've had Rosco for about 6 months now and he is 8-9 months old. He was really tiny when my wife brought him home at 8 weeks and he is roughly 45 pounds now. His dad was really big, around 70 pounds, so he has the potential to get that large. But his weight has been around 40-45 pounds since early August. I was just wondering if they hit a plateau for awhile. We feed him twice a day according to the dog food bag's recommendation by weight, and sometimes he doesn't eat all his food but he doesn't lack for energy so I know I'm not starving him. I'd be interested in hearing how all your hounds grew up.
