barnyard Our pup just turned 8 months and weighed in at 50 lbs. She eats 3 cups of Fromms a day as well. I think both your pup and mine look good!

Freestep She looks great, at a perfect weight for her age and her frame. You want to keep them on the lean side as they are growing, so that growth is nice and slow and steady. She will certainly fill out and muscle up as she matures, if she is 46 lb at 8 months, she should mature around 60ish lb. which is right in line for a female GSD.

Liesje She looks great. It looks like she has a tighter coat so I she's naturally going to show more curves. I wouldn't up her food just based on those pics.

Gilly1331 She looks perfect. You always want to see a "waist" when looking from above. You will know when she is too skinny by an extreme waist where the ribs are totally visible from above/side. You should only see them during a run.

Anubis_Star German shepherds are KNOWN to be lean, awkward, lanky puppies. Structurally, they grow up until a 1-1.5 years. They continue to fill out and put on weight until 2-3 years of age. At 8 months old, she has a LOT of growing yet to do.

Also, keep in mind that a well bred female should only be 65-75 lbs. German shepherds were not meant to be these 100lb giants. So she is perfectly in line to be a normal sized female.

KatsMuse Bella looks fine to me.

My 11 month old female weighs 58 lbs...lean but healthy.
My little girl runs a lot ...she gets 2 measured cups of food in AM, then 2 cups PM ( 4 cups total a day).

julie87 looks perfect to me they are not suppose to be chubby, lean is a lot better for them as long as you can't see her ribs she is fine.
