Default My GSD pup seems small

My I was told my GSD is 8 weeks old born April 3. But she seems so small my husband keeps saying he thinks she might be mixed but I saw both or her parents and they looked pure bread. I'm gonna try to attach a video of her playing with my 25 lbs beagle. Please tell me if she looks about the right size!My GSD pup seems small-image.jpg

She looks fine to me. All are different but Rusty was only 10 pounds at 8 weeks.

Just re-read your post. She's younger than 8 weeks.

April 3rd was 7 weeks ago by my count, so she is 7 weeks old, not 8. How much does she weigh?

I think there's a possibility the breeder was not honest about the age of the pups & sold you a pup that was 4-6 weeks old.

If that's not the cae & she is close to 8 weeks that does seem small.

Has she been to the vet yet? Vets can usually tell the age.

Can you post a better picture of her? A head shot & clear full body shot.

She looks purebred to me but she does look a little too small to be 8 weeks. I'm not sure though
