Default I was wondering the same

Growing up our GSDs were in the 60lb range for females and a little larger for the males. Our latest GSD female is 92lbs! She is a mix of European (sorry, can't remember if Austrian or German) working and show lines. When she was 2 and a half we went to our breeders for some training and they were surprised at her size. She was the largest GSD present, easily the largest of her litter. (no she is not overweight) Even so, all the females were easily 75lbs and the males 85 to 90lbs.

I like the look of the size, but wonder if it is good for the breed.

No expert here though.
