We've always gone by the old rule that seems to work that a dog grows to it's final height by 1 year and then spends the next year filling out. All of our dogs have been pretty close to this.

My dogs seem to have their last height growth spur around 16 months old. Then they start filling out.

Some lines grow slower than others and physically mature slower as well. I myself, like to look at a 12 month old dog and be able to tell it's 12 months old. Still immature looking. Growing too fast usually harms the body in some way shape or form.
