8 month old GSD-weight?

Hello, I have a question regarding the weight of 8 month old GSD. My boy is 8 months now and his weight is 73 punds (lbs) now he is very muscular, and very active and eats always according to the instrucions and about 2-3 small treats a day for training. Is this ok weight for him? I have looked at some charts online but they are very off whe nI look at my friends dogs, mind yo umost have younger ones or females. I dont have papers for him but the vet said he looks like a king shepherd so I know they are a bit bigger than average. So my question is how much does or did you male weigh at 8 months? Thank you I appreciate all theresponses.

Zeus was in the 70 something lb range at 8 months. At 10 months now he is just over 90lbs...He is not a King Sheppard.I guess he is just a big Sheppard...The Sire is German Lines and the Dame American Lines. He eats more than I do..(quite a bit) but the vet says he is not over weight and is in excellent health.. he is out at least 2 hours everyday to play / exercise. ..I have no idea what he will end up at. His parents where 120 and 90lbs respectively.

That seems like a good weight for 8 months (especially because everyone else is/was similar)

i think its best to forget the charts and the numbers and focus on him being lean. if you can post pictures of him, you will get better responses as to whether his body condition is where it should be.

When Panzer was 7 months, he was 72.4 pounds. At 10 months, he was 77.3, so the weight changes really slowed way down during that time. You may see the same thing.

Handsome boy!
