I agree with konotashi, you want to build him up slowly so you don't overload his gi track and end up with diarhea etc.
To build muscle tone, swimming is excellent!
Thank you for adopting this boy!

Thank you for your reply. Yes I was giving him a good thorough grooming, pat/massage and his muscle tone is very minimal I exercise Marley daily so he will now get the same now too. Slowly better than fast I agree is much better.

Feed him regularly, but without the veggies. You don't want him to just build fat, but muscle as well.
Having him gain weight slowly and steadily will be healthier for him.

Rescued GSD 12 month old, very skinny, can see bones badly
Hi, I am new to the forum, I have a 14month old German Shepherd girl and she is perfect for weight as I feed her according to our vet and I attend the vet regulary for checkups. My Husband and I decided we wanted another GSD cause we absolutely love them! Instead of going to a breeder I decided to rescue. He is 12 months old and seriously underweight. Il be going to my vet within the week but I'd like to start ASAP to get (kye) healthy and happy. He is well mannered but not trained and all of his torso is very boney and is visible without touching (makes me sad) he is very submissive and shy also but he has so much potential and love to give. Should I be feeding him what I do with Marley? I feed her Royal Canine breed specific and bones, chicken necks, roo mince (swapping around not all together) etc She loves to have vegtables too especially carrots along with vitamins and a healthy joints supplement as recommended. Should I just stick to that or is there something with a higher fat percentage I should feed instead? Thank you kindly in advance for any responses and advice you can share
