Hi everyone im wondering what your dogs weigh once fully grown. All the average weights for males I find say 35-40kg fully grown but my little boy Nanook is 8 and s half months old and weighed in today at 39.5kg! He'll easily surpass 40kg by the time he's fully grown. He isn't overweight, most of the time he's quite a fussy eater & I worry he isn't eating enough. 39.4kg is a lot considering he's still a pup, so i'm wondering what other peoples dogs weights are as all the averages I find online seem a bit off!

Either that or I do actually live with a bear not a dog hehe

The averages aren't off. What you're looking at is the breed standard and that is actually where most GSDs will fall. My boy is fully grown and about 85 lbs. Lately there has been a trend to breed them bigger (mostly in the US) and so they've gotten bigger. But there is always a chance for an outlier here and there even when to "in standard" dogs are bred.

My boy at 8 months old was about 60 something to give you some perspective on how they grow after they are fully grown height wise. He's currently 25.5" at the withers which is also within standard. Your boy might not be fat, he just might be tall, which would cause him to carry more weight.

I've never measured his height actually... But he is tall, especially when he sits it is noticeable. So he is currently 8 and a half months old & 39.5kg which works out at 87lbs. Big lad! He's a pedigree but not necessarily bred to be a certain shape, colour or size. Both his parents were large, but I figured all german shepherds are! Strange to think he weighs now what other adult gsds do. Will have to measure his height

He might not get any bigger than that. My dog was full grown at seven months. I don't know what his height was, so he may have gotten taller, but he doesn't weigh more at seven years.
