Default Rate of growth in GSD?

Is there anywhere that will give me an idea of how fast my pup will put on size and weight over the next few months? He's 7 weeks right now, and i am curious about how big he's going to get over the next 15 weeks or so

There are a few threads on this forum where people share their pups growth. Here is one: Height Growth Chart

I do think all pups are different though. I used to compare my girl's height and weight to others on this forum and she always seemed to be on the small side. Below are my photos of my pup that show how much she grew and changed over four months, just to give you an idea of how quick it happens! (8 weeks to 6 months)

wow! She's a pretty lady!

i can't wait for Chewie to get big enough that he can go hiking with me. Right now he's to small to get over most of the rocks and and brush.

Is it safe to take a 7 week old pup swimming in a very cold creek?

I would say no, 7 weeks I wouldn't even want to bathe a puppy in cold water
