SummerGSDLover Gotcha. Yeah, I can still feel his ribs. You can see them when he runs too. He's built like a tank. I will keep an eye on his food intake though. Thank you!

LaRen616 He looks good, not fat, but I would still watch his food intake, keep him nice and lean, you want to be able to slightly feel his ribs.

I can't recall how large my male was at 7 months but he stays between 85-90 pounds at 5 years old and he is over the standard height wise at 28.5 inches tall, he isn't muscular though, if he were I would think he'd be about 95 pounds.

Chets Dad - I think athletic is the key to a good healthy dog. Great job with your big boy!

Thank you! I very much am enjoying his company. I was hoping he'd be around his dads size but I guess not. Haha! Oh well. He's a big beautiful boy and I am happy he's healthy.

SummerGSDLover I switched him to adult food at 5 months because he weighed in at 60 lbs. So I guess it's just genetics?

Harry and Lola Good looking boy you have there, 75 pounds for a 7mo GSD male is heavy, however looking at the photos, he looks great, not fat, has a trim waist, so I would monitor him with his food and always make sure he has a waist and can feel the ribs.

Definitely take him off the puppy version of your chosen food.

SummerGSDLover These were the best I could get today. What do you think now that you can kind of see his dimensions?
