Thanks for the info. This makes sense to me because Ranger had a small head from day one. His body really seems to be filling out and after I posted yesterday I took another look at his head. He does seem to have gotten a more masculine head in the past couple months. It still isn't that big, but he is getting more of a masculine look to him.

shepherdmom My male, Buddy, was neutered young around 4 months and he has a huge head!

Even as a 5-6 month old puppy... Buddy is on the right.

No one would ever mistake him for a female

Rangers_mom My Ranger, almost 2 years old, has a very feminine looking head as well. People usually think he is a girl dog. He was neutered at 8 months so that might be why. I know that doesn't really offer any info but I thought I would just let you know that there are other male GSDs that have small heads.

HarleyTheGSD Is he neutered? Many male dogs neutered at a young age lack some of the masculine qualities.
They fill out completely at about two to three years of age.

Small head

Hi my 14 month old GSD jack seems to have a small head. Will it fill out as his body does, ? And at what age does he start to fill out. ?
