About how big will he get?

I have a 5 month old Rhodesian Ridgeback mix, adopted this past February. He's about 33-35 lbs. Definitely small for a ridgeback at that age. I know he won't get as big as a Ridgie, just wondering if anyone had any guesses as to how big he might get? The shelter didn't know what else he was mixed with. The people that turned him and his siblings in just said that mom was a ridgeback. I'm thinking a bit of lab (loves to retrieve) and some pit or staffy (smiles like one). Maybe boxer (prances and uses his paws like one). Who knows. He's also a very skinny-built dog. Still has quite a bit of loose fur, paws are still a bit abnormally big... Should I expect him to grow much more? 10 more pounds? 20? Last month at this age I believe he weighed around 25. month before 15. So he usually puts on about 10lbs every month. Anyone who wants to make a guesstimate is welcome to. :P Right now I'm guessing he'll finish out at about 50 lbs. What are some breeds that weigh in that area? Just so I can get an idea of how big he'll be and what he'll look like.

I think he will be about 40 to 45lbs.

I got my pup, she is a hound mix, at 4 months, she weighed 19lbs, 6 months 22lbs, 8 months 25lbs and now she is 9 months at 30.

Theyre growth slows down alot as they get to be older puppies. Mine will probly top off at 40 at most. So 40 to 50lbs for yours seems right.
