Most people seem to have males that are at least 80 lbs that I have seen once grown lol.
And then here I am with my just over a year male doing a happy dance that he finally is not only staying over 60 lbs, but is around 63 lbs.
No one remarks on how skinny he is. Any time that I mention I am surprised not to get remarks on how skinny he is, people shoot back at me, but he's fit. So I think I'm the only one who is bugged by his ribs being easy to see lol.
Here's a few recent pictures to show what I mean...
I know what you mean. I was never concerned about my dog weighing a ton. I ended up with a 100 pound gsd. But it wasnt like i wanted him that weight to impress people. I wish he were smaller. But such is life. I think your dog looks fine.
