kakarot Don't think you should worry. My pup weighed in at 30 pounds and 4 1/2 weeks as well and both his parents were in the 60-75 pound range. Even when we first brought him home, I had doubts he was a GSD at all because he was soo frickin' tiny.

Harry and Lola They do grow at different rates, at 16 weeks you would want your pup to be gaining around 2 pounds a week up to about 5mo then around 1.6 pounds per week. 30 pounds is a good weight for a 4mo. Don't stress if he doesn't gain in a week, just monitor him and if he stops growing over a few weeks then I would seek medical advice.

I have read that gsd have a huge/fast growing spurts from birth-4 months. Maybe since your boy is in the 4 month old stage, he is out of the very fast growing stage.

Thewretched We'll at that age mine was 45ish, and she is a female and her mother was above average(about 75), so we're expecting around 65-75. I'd say yours will be in that sweet 65pound range

SkippyShadowCat Ok thanks i don't know a lot on large breed pups he's my first but I feel better about it now it was worrying me, I'm not a fan of the bigger ones either not that there's anything wrong with them I'm just hoping for average size

Thewretched Looks good to me, I'm guessing you'll have a growth spurt here soon, I'm quite a fan of the 60-70 pounders myself, bigger isn't always better
