GSDluver4lyfe My boy weighed 42# at 7 months. I thought he was a dwarf...seriously Then one day he started growing and now weighs 93-95# depending on the day. They all grow at different rates. My first GSD weighed 75-78# at 7 months and topped out at around 100#. 5# size difference between my first GSD and the one I have now but their growth spurts occured at different times in their development.

Tre-Tail My female weighs in at 65lbs and just turned 9 months. Your pup might start leveling off at this point

vicky2200 I can't say much about the weight, because I don't remember what mine weighed at 7 months. However, 24 inches isn't very big for that weight. Mine (full grown) weighs 78 lbs and is 28 inches.

WVGSD My GSD puppy did the same thing - about a ten pound increase with each month of age and then it leveled off at about 7-8 months of age. She weighs 75 pounds and is now 20 months old. It just took her time to grow in to her body and especially her feet.

95 lb female

Our youngest GSD Female ended up 95lbs. Turns out she was just the biggest of her litter. We didn't want a "Big" GSD, but got one. Sometimes it happens.

mego at exactly 7 months my female was 57 lbs, and at almost 13 months now she's between 62-64, it slowed down A LOT for us at that point.

blackshep I'm trying to remember...I think my pup REALLY slowed down on weight gain around 6 months or so. She's now about 70 lbs, so pretty big for a female. I think your pup will gain more, but it might not be as much as you think.

I remember when she was gaining 10 lbs a month I was getting kind of worried, I kept her very lean too. She ended up being large for a female, but not ridiculously big. Her mom is 60 lbs and her half sister is 65.

Gretchen My female was probably weighed in the 70's when she was 7 months. She is 3.5 yrs old now and weighs between 86-88lbs.

I don't think she is huge at all. We think other GSDs are small.

Zoey'sDad The acreage is really nice to have. Especially with her. She is off leash pretty much all the time and the natural wildlife provides enough distractions when we are training outside as well. Not much of that going on now though. With this nationwide cold snap, I am not very motivated to go play outside for an extended period of time. Zoey doesn't care at all though. I think she actually enjoys the cold weather.

Excuse the mess in some of the photobucket pictures. In May we moved into a cabin my dad built 40 years ago. It needed extensive remodeling, hence the mess. We were remodeling, living in the cabin, I was working full time (my girlfriend is a teacher and had the summer off), and raising a puppy. Needless to say our hands were full.
