GS puppy's neck
 
OK this is my first GSD so don't laugh at this question! My 9 month old male has this huge flap of loose skin under his neck-like a turkey's goozle! Is this normal? Will he "grow into it?" :eek:

Relax - normal. 9 months can be an awkward age. So - as he grows it will look better.

Some GSDs have very loose skin in the neck area. He may or may not grow into it, but it is nothing to worry about.

Thanks! I've always had Dobes so this was new for me!
