When do Yorkies typically stop growing?

Ben is almost 5 months, he's 3.5 lbs. I've heard you double their weight at 12 weeks and that will help you detrimine their weight, any truth to that?? Also when do they stop growing length wise?

I know a breeder that says they stop growing around 7 to 8 months. You will notice his growth slow down.

For smaller breed dogs they are normally fully grown at about 9 months or so, that is in weight and length. You will start to see them slow in there growth when they are 6 months. And the rule of thumb more or less about the weight is actually at 12 weeks it is double the weight plus 1 pound. I was informed this by a vet that I know. I got Bella at 6 Months old and she just turned 9 months in that time she only gained 2 pounds.
