How tall is he at the shoulder? He might just be big

Do you have a picture of him standing, from the side? Hard to tell otherwise.

I think that is pretty normal - my male (Who is not oversized as an adult) was 37lbs at his 16 week shots - just very heavy boned boy.

From the pictures, your boy does not look overweight.

My pup was 30.0 lbs at 12 weeks, 56.2 at 6 months, approaching 8 months old on the 15th. My pup is all legs and ears and gangly, not an ounce of fat on him. I wouldn't worry.

Looks adorable and just fine.My guy is all muscle and eats alot. but 9 acres to play in helps. He does weigh heavy but guess what, muscles weigh more then fat and good strong bones.
