How long for puppy food?

We have a rescued female Pyr that's been with us for 11 months now. We are certain that her father is a full Pyr, but now sure of the mother's breed. She has all of the looks and features of a full Pyr. She is around 13 months old and weighs around 65-70 pounds. We read of different needs for puppies and puppy formula food that states anywhere from 12 to 24 months, depending on the size and breed. We have no experience with bigger dogs, so we're turning to those who do. How long does she need to be fed puppy formula food? She seems to have reached her full height, as there's been no change for at least 2 months, but she continues to fill out and muscle-up.

You are feeding your pup excellent food for long term bone and joint health. Great Pyrenees dogs take a little longer to mature, so I would continue with the puppy food for a few months yet. Her height may be set but joints and bone density are still developing. You are also feeding for a healthy & long life for your dog. When you check her body with your hands and find a good layer of flesh over her ribs, that would be the time to slowly switch to a maintenance feed. Keep checking body condition. Not too thin and not too fat but JUST RIGHT! Good luck and long life with your special girl.
