NSweet My female GSD/Rottie is 7 months right now and just broke that 40lb barrier! Slowly but surely she is getting there but she is also a mix so who knows how big she'll get?!

Thank you so much! This makes me feel a thousand times better. I also found the small females thread which made me a bit happy too. I'm still getting the testing done but I just thought I was the only one with a dog at this age that was this small. Had her weighed today and she's finally at 40#.

Xyst Sin Thanks for all the replies guys. I'll get some pics up in just a few minutes. Looking into getting her a blood test. She eats normal and isn't losing any weight, but she isn't getting bigger at all. Not even her bones. Her body has just like stopped developing. She acts and looks completely healthy.

Neko my boy Zeus was 46 pounds at 6 month he is 14 month now and healthy 73 pounds. He grew very very slow and steady. His siblings grew much faster, So could be nothing wrong O_o

Harry and Lola Test for EPI - is a simple blood test.

If your dog is eating and not gaining weight (during growth periods) or eating and losing weight as an adult, then she may have EPI. EPI basically means the pancreas doesn't work and they can't digest food, so they eat like a horse, poop like a cow and can starve to death if not treated.
