Rescue puppy
#1
[attachment=11219][attachment=11219]This is my first post Smile
I adopted a gorgeous little collie cross puppy 3 months ago from my local rescue centre. Zee is 5 and a half months old now and already lives to work and train. She is a cross breed, her mother was a small collie cross and her dad is unknown. Any guesses what she could be crossed with? She seems smaller then your average 5 month old weighing 8.5kg and standing at about 16 inches tall. At what age should I expect her to reach her adult height?

I can't access the links you added. The message says it may have expired or we may not be in the audience that can access it.

In respect to height, From my observation they seem to reach full height after 14-15 months but continue to fill out to a broader mature dog after 2 years. Others may well have more accuracy with that.

I couldn't access the photos either.

For size comparison. Tasha was 23lbs./10.4kg at 24 weeks. Now at three years old she weighs 33lbs./15kg and I think is 18 or 19" tall.

Dogs this size tend to grow to within 1/2" of their adult size by about 9-10 months, which is about when they reach puberty/sexual maturity. Dogs that are neutered early can grow a bit longer than normal. Males finish filling out at about 2 1/2 years, females about 2 years.
Gotta love 'em.

Thank you all for the replys Smile I think I have my facebook page on private which is probably why the pictures couldn't be accessed. Here is some more photos, I hope they can be accessed.

You have an adorable pack of pups!

It will be really interesting to see what Zee looks like when she is older.  From the photos and video if you told me she was all Border Collie I wouldn't question it.  Here is my Tasha at five months.  She is a registered BC.

Oh wow Tasha is beautiful  Heart I will make sure to update with photos as she grows up. Zee looks very similar to Tasha. 

Here is a video of Zee with her siblings while she was in the rescue;
