What are the chances that my german shepherd is going to thicken up?
She weighs about 55 lbs and just turned a year old, what are the chances she is going to get thicker? Like muscle mass wise. She comes from a working line her dad was about 90.
She's a year old and she's grown into her feet. There won't be much more growing to be done anymore, but she could still fill out a bit more over the next year. Exercise will help with building more muscle on her.
My pup is on the thin side too, I try uping her food but she usually just leaves it. I am not over concerned and neither is her vet. Just like a lot of us humans when we where young, I could eat all day and not gain pound. Now I dream about food and wake up five pounds heavier.
Brenna ranged between 50-55 lb for the longest time. She was about 2 1/2-3 years old before I stopped seeing the definition of her ribs when she turned or breathed heavily, and I fed her the amount recommended for an 80 lb dog. Now, she is 6 1/2 and about 60 lbs.
