pyratemom Raina was on a diet from 95 pounds and I think I have her at 89-90 now. I'll know in a couple weeks at her annual checkup. Pyrate at his healthiest was 110 pounds - his parents were 115 and 120, very tall dogs. I started getting him to drop weight when hips starting giving him problems around 5 years old. When he crossed the bridge he was down to 98 pounds.

Pawsed Our adult dog, now 4, 5 at the end of September, is around 120 pounds. He's a rescue, so we have no idea of his breeding. He's 27.5 inches tall, but blocky, and is the kindest dog you could imagine.

Mary Beth My Sting is oversize - 30 inches tall, 130 lbs. Be interesting to know what the others in the 110 lbs. category weigh and how tall they are.

I'm still working on getting Nara to lose weight, as I was in denial for so long that she was all muscle and no fat. She gets tons of exercise, but I think I was overfeeding her to compensate for the amount of daily activity. She's gone down from 90 lbs to leveling out around 76. I will see if I can get her under 70 lbs, but it might not be healthy for her at 24.5", West German lines. Kaze, on the other hand, needs to gain probably another 5-10 lbs of muscle mass. I'm working on that as well! He's already over the standard at 26" and 90+ lbs. He's long and lanky, with HUGE paws.
Actually Kaze is not over the standard height wise, he is within the standard for males. Male GSDs per the AKC standard are between 24-26 inches at the shoulder.

"Size, Proportion, Substance: The desired height for males at the top of the highest point of the shoulder blade is 24 to 26 inches; and for bitches, 22 to 24 inches."

My male is over the standard height wise by between 2-2.5 inches and he weighs 85 pounds and is lean. Are you sure that Kaze is an ideal weight? You say he is between 90-95 pounds and you think he needs to gain another 5-10 pounds? That sounds like A LOT of weight for a dog that is 26', are you sure your scale is correct?
