My GSMD weighs 103 lbs, He is 1 and 1/2 yrs old. His dad was 140 and mom 130, will he grow more?

He is not neutered. He is very muscular, and very proportional. Just wondering if anyone thinks he will grow more who may have had a gsmd with a similar situation.
Thank you.

Nope...He's about done growing...He may put on another 5 lbs. by the time he reaches maturity.
Swissies are not giant breed dogs to start with...Are his parents fat?

Check the ends of the leg bones. If they are still much knobbier than an adult's, the growth plates are still open and it is still growing. If not, do not expect much more growth.
