Can't answer, but just wanted to inform you that if this dog came from a breeder you can bet your boots it was a bad one. Good breeders never allow you to take a dog home earlier than 8 weeks.
More info about breeders here:
usually between 6-12 months old

In terms of height, most small-breed dogs are considered to be fully grown around 7 to 8 months of age, and large breed dogs around 1 year of age.
However, in terms of size, most dogs "fill in" between one and three years of age. If you are going by weight, also bear in mind that a fat dog will be much heavier than a skinny dog ...
