We have just rescued a 7 month old portuguese water dog. The lady we got him from said he wasn’t a pure breed but he seems to have the appearance and traits of a water dog although his height isn’t up to the standard he is 18 inch’s a male i’m not sure on his weight and his coat it seems to have stopped growing. Even though it isn’t like a water dog yet it isn’t long enough.
I would like to know
will he grow anymore up to the 20 inch standard
Will his coat grow anymore.
How much weight would he put on from now till when he reaches his maximum weight.

If he’s a cross bred as you were told the there is no way of knowing what size he’ll be or even if his coat will grow.
Only with a purebred can you be sure.
