BrennasMom Brenna ranged between 50-55 lb for the longest time. She was about 2 1/2-3 years old before I stopped seeing the definition of her ribs when she turned or breathed heavily, and I fed her the amount recommended for an 80 lb dog. Now, she is 6 1/2 and about 60 lbs.

m1953 My pup is on the thin side too, I try uping her food but she usually just leaves it. I am not over concerned and neither is her vet. Just like a lot of us humans when we where young, I could eat all day and not gain pound. Now I dream about food and wake up five pounds heavier.

Elaine She's a year old and she's grown into her feet. There won't be much more growing to be done anymore, but she could still fill out a bit more over the next year. Exercise will help with building more muscle on her.

PatchonGSD She looks nice and fit in this pic. My guess is that she will be on the petite side. Very pretty girl.

jaggirl47 She is still a baby. Most of these dogs are not done growing until they are closer to 3 years.

One year old puppy, too skinny?

What are the chances that my german shepherd is going to thicken up?
She weighs about 55 lbs and just turned a year old, what are the chances she is going to get thicker? Like muscle mass wise. She comes from a working line her dad was about 90.
