Default Average weight for a female?

I have seen online that the average female GSD weighs about 60-65 lbs. That seems sort of small to me. I have only had one female before this pup and she was about 75 lbs, but I never thought of her as being big.

A 60 lb average means there are a bunch of 50 and 55 lb full grown GSDs out there. That is just hard to picture, I guess!

I have no idea if it's average or not, since I haven't seen a large enough selection of female GSDs. I do know it's the standard size though.

I have had several females, all in the 60 lb range. Standard size and I would think probably average if attempts to breed to the standard predominates.

Come to think of it, my in-laws' current female and their last female were both under 60lb.

Ditto is 76lbs, but taller than the average female GSD.

The breed standard for a female is 48.5 to 70.55 pounds, with the midpoint being 59.5. German Shepherd Weight Chart and Height

That's almost exactly what Halo weighs, but most of my females have been slightly oversized, from 70 - 78 pounds. Average weight? Who knows?

Both of my previous females were in the 80 lb. range, but Neko (almost 6 months) is at 45 lbs right now and I'm guessing she'll end up around 60.
