Luke is now 7 months old. My fiancÚ has been saying for a while that he thinks Luke is small for his age. I keep telling him that it's better that he's small and a healthy weight instead of overweight. I just weighed Luke and he weighs exactly 54lbs at 7 months and one week. I looked at a German Shepherd breed standard growth chart that I found online and he's at the average female
weight for 7 months. The average male weight at 7 months is about 62lbs.
Now, here I am I'm second guessing his size too!
I realize the numbers in the chart are just averages but what does everyone on the forum think? Is he a smaller sized male or is he going to fill out and be an average sized German Shepherd male? He came from a large size litter, he was one of twelve puppies. Could that have something to do with his size?
On a side note, we feed him 3 cups of Kirkland Chicken & Rice dog food per day. Here are some pictures I just took of Luke.
