About my pup's size
Hello everyone, lately I've been worried about my male shep's size, he is now 5 months but only weighs about 38 pounds he is well fed, he recently went to the vet and everything was good, but looking at him now he should be bigger he hasn't grown into his paws and to me he seams small; compared to the neighbors GSD which at his age was much bigger even though they didn't exercise him (which i do with my dog every day)
Id post pictures but since I'm new i don't know how to do it :3

If you guys have any advice I'm all ears

I wouldn't worry because your pup is healthy and he isn't finished growing yet:) Just because the neighbor's pup is bigger doesn't mean something is wrong with your pup. explains how to post photos.

What size are the parents? He'll probably grow to a similar weight/size. A friend got a pup last year that started out very slow, he's 75 lbs @ about 9 months and still has some filling out to do. I'd quit worrying as long as he's healthy.
