Thanks! We probably added 4 to 5 years to his life span by doing this.

He is a lot healthier and has more energy and will live longer since he took off the extra pounds.

Before: At 103 Pounds



Now 77-78 pounds



At his present weight he is still a Big Dog as well as a Healthy Dog!

The male GSD should be between 65-85 pounds so your male is fine, overtime he will gain a little more as he matures and fills out.

fredh Looks good to me, like kr16 said, be careful not to put to much weight on him.

kr16 Might want to be careful packing on pounds for a puppy. No rush to fatten them up. Skinny is better than heavy.

Angelina03 I think he's fine. Remember he's 9 months so he's in that growing stage. Rocco was even a bit thinner at that age and I was worried until someone explained it like this: think of a 15 year old boy. Usually, if they are healthy and fit, they are going to look a bit skinny or lanky. But, they will fill out as they develop. I think your boy is perfect for 9 months.
