this chart is often referred to:

WEIGHT AND HEIGHT CHART FOR THE GERMAN SHEPHERD DOG

but, these are just averages, and forum members here have gsd's that commonly fluctuate from those averages. it is much more critical that gsd's be kept as lean as possible (as long as ribs arent sticking out) and eating a food appropriate for a large breed pup.

ive seen owners who want to feed their dog to try to make them "fit" into some average number, which is an absolute mistake.

Agreed... Our male Riley was 38.8 pounds at 4 months, but his growth has slowed considerably since then. He's now a year old, 70 pounds, and very "lean" (he's 25" tall to the top of his shoulder blades).

I remember worrying the first few months about whether or not Riley fit into that growth chart, or how big he was going to be at 1 year because the chart said that is 100% of his total growth... blah! The truth is that their growth, weight, and duration of growth can vary dramatically. If you want to know how big your pups going to be, look to his parents. If you want to know what his weight should be, look at his ribs lol.

Fritz was 46 pounds at 4 months and is 81 pounds at 7 months.

Shaeffer was 36 pounds at 4 months and topped out at 92 pounds.

i don't know what the average weight for a 4 month
old Shep is.

my dog at 9 weeks old he weighed 17.5 lbs.

at 19 weeks old he weighed 23.5 lbs.

at 6 months old he weighed 70 lbs.

at 1.5 years old he weighed 95.1 lbs.

currently (3 yrs. old 6/04/10) 88 lbs.

my dog was 95 lbs. when he was weighed
2 months ago. i have him down to 88 lbs.
my dog isn't fat. he's in shape. our Vet
says he's naturally big. i don't think
he needs to be 95 lbs.
