Default 11 week old GSD weight? Normal?

I have an 11 week old german shepherd male puppy and he was weighed in yesterday 15.5 pounds. Is this a normal weight? I hear of puppies being around 25-30 pounds at this age and was hoping that he is okay. He is a purebred pup. I posted a pic of him that I took today!

He's handsome! I have an 11 week male too, 22 lbs today. And, the breeder told me he was the little one... Someone posted a weight and height chart site in here, I checked it out, look online for one, good luck.

I think mine was around 20 lbs at that age, but I wouldn't worry about the weight. As long as he looks healthy and vet checked him out, he should be fine. Typically they gain about 2-3 lbs a week during this time. Different dogs, have different growth spurts, some early some late. Feed a high quality food. If he gets too skinny, feed more. If he gets too heavy, feed less. Look up the condition chart, he should be at 4 or 5 on a 10 point scale.

When I took my 12 week old male Rebell to the vet for his shots he weighed out at exactly 30 lbs.

I have the runt of the litter and she was 15 lbs at 11 weeks as well. She's gaining weight and is healthy and that's what they said was important.

I also had the runt of the litter. I think he was 12 pounds at 11 weeks. Every dog is going to grow differently. I wouldn't worry about comparing him to other dogs. I would just keep him healthy and make sure he doesn't get overweight.

My dog was the smallest, and last pup because no one wanted him. He's now bigger than his brother height 32 inches and weighed in at 112 pounds yesterday at 20 months. They grow at different rates. You should know more around 5 months.

now, I want him to weigh less!

Thanks everyone for the replies! He is a very healthy boy and very playful. Vet had no complaints about him, but I was just curious everyone else's experiences with their dog's weight as this age
