8-12 months they stop growing. Usually their bones will stop growing sometime within that point, but then their muscles will continue to grow and develop after that. Most dogs will have at least one more growth spurt after 6 months, so I wouldn't say 6 months

most chis are at thier height and lenght by 8 months...
then they will fill out weight wise till there about a year, and then will muscle out and continue to start to look "grown up" between 1 and 2 yrs old. by 2 yrs old the chi should be done growing, hit their peak/ideal weight and have a healthy amount of muscle and structure.

the coat however can continue to change up untill 3 yrs and a long coat chis coat is not at full lenght an fullness untill 3yrs old

My Poco just turned one, and he still seems to be filling out to me. He hasn't really grown in length or height in about 3 months, but he is still filling out and becoming more "grown up" looking every day.
