Beagles are one of the smaller sized breed of dogs. An adult male Beagle is about14 to 16 inches tall and weighs around 22 to 24 lbs while an adult female Beagle is around 13 to 15 inches tall weighing about 20 to 22 lbs. At around 8 months, owners already have an idea how big their Beagles are going to be but a Beagle is only considered full grown at the age of 18 months. At this time, they have already fully developed their skeletal system so you can expect them to stop growing.
Knowing the average size and weight of dogs coming from the same breed guides pet owners on the growth and development of their dogs. These are considered markers or milestones that would give them an idea if their dogs are growing properly. If they feel that their pets are below or above the average weight and size, they can always consult with their vets to determine if there are steps they can take to help maximize their pets’ development. When your Beagle is fully grown, you can transition him from puppy food to adult dog food as his body’s needs will change. It is highly recommended to give your pets a balanced diet to ensure that they’re getting the proper nutrition that their body needs at this stage so that you can have a heathy and happy dog.
