If she's just about a year old she should be just about done growing. If she does have another bit of growth spurt id say maybe 56-57, but (for those who know more/own about labs correct me if wrong) I think there just about done growing at year of age.

Is she English bred or American bred? The English bred are thicker with a much larger, almost Rottweiler-esque skull. American bred dogs are leaner with a thinner head. Also, it is a common perception that all Labs should be very thick, but really most are overweight. In fact there was even just an article published about their genetic predisposition to obesity. I personally don't think she should exceed 60 lbs.
