They usually fill out over a course of two to three years.

3 years old is when my last GSD filled out to 105 lbs., My new pup Rebell shares the same grandfather looks like he's going to follow suit, 51.6 lbs at 19 weeks.

I've been told up to three. My boy is filling out at an alarming rate, and he's got a bit taller as well.

Males generally stop growing in height by about 9 months, may gain an extra 1cm by 15 months, and fill out by 3 to 4 years

Females generally stop growing in height by about 8 months and may gain an extra 1cm by 12 to 15 months and fill out by 3 years.
