This topic might have gone over before, but I haven't been on for awhile. Our lab Midnight, who is now a little over 8 months old, weighs a lot! He's not overweight, I asked the vet, but is real stocky. i'm pretty sure he's the English breed. He now weighs 100 pounds. Everyone who sees him can't believe how big he is and or trainer says he's got one more growth spurt. How big can labs get? Anyone else have a 'husky" but healthy lab/

It depends.

We had a papered male black lab when I was younger that had a hormone problem and ended up being about 180 lbs and could look my dad in the eyes when he stood on his hind legs.

Ive had and seen pups that grew like yours, and others that never got over 70 pounds.

Our lab Buddy is about to turn three. He weighs 114 and has been at that weight for a long time. The vet said he is not overweight just a big dog.......but vet did say he could stand to lose about 4 pounds. Most people that we meet say that he is the biggest lab they have ever seen....... i think you are going to have a very big lab as well.

Misha is just 9 months and she weighs 55 lbs. She is tall though. Do labs keep growing after this age? Can we expect her to still get bigger?

Bella is approaching 2 years old and although she only weight about 29kg/63lbs, she's a short lab so still looks quite stocky. We love her that way though :D

Tessa weighs in at 34kg. She is a short legged Lab and has always looked stockier than her siblings/surrounding labs. She's lost some weight recently as we have changed her diet.

I have two female labs. One is English style and one is American even though the were sisters from the same litter. They are now almost seven and Eve (my English girl) wights 98 pounds and is over weight while Abby (my American girl) is 103 pounds and is underweight even though she eats like a horse.

Jack is 1 1/2 and weighed 71 lbs. yesterday. He had gained 10lbs. in the last 5 months ( so he's still growing or at least filling out).

In answer to the OP. D.O.G is a lab dobe mix, and hovers between 50 and 55 kg/ 110 and 120 lbs. Depending on how often I am able to get out and jog.

Syler is a lab chow mix, and stays around 34 kg/ 75 lbs.

What is the deal with stones? How did that measurement come about?

Ringo is about 65 lbs., I thought he was small but the vet said he is just perfect. He is also English lab, hence, Ringo!
