B) lanky teen or not, he's pretty badass. Good for you!

My vet told me between 2 and 3. I was very concerned since she looked so scrawny. Indie is 18 months now and is finally looking less and less like a gangly teenager. She was 58 lbs at 13 months and is probably not too more than that now. All muscle as far as I can tell. Her sire and dam were very lean as well.

Arson looks very lively!

GSD's are a lot like horses. Each is different based on breeding, gender, ect. Tell people to mind their own business. I get told the same thing about Arson who is 9 months old and 80lbs. because he's all legs. Reminds me of a yearling colt honestly (Can you tell i'm a horse trainer?)....

My GSD intact bitch just turned 2 and I recently noticed she has finally filled out. My neighbor who has watched her grow over the 2 years just stated yesterday that she is filling out as well....
Regardless of when they do...a leaner/lankier dog which is healthy, certainly is better than the converse.

|qbchottu||Depends on the dog, the gender, and the lines. I've noticed females fill out earlier than males, show lines mature faster than working lines, and certain lines mature faster. My females in general filled out at 1.5-2.5 years and my males filled out at 2-3 years.|

|Liesje||My male filled out 3-4 years. He just turned 6 and this is the first summer that he's blown his coat and still looked like an adult male DOG and not a lanky, naked adolescent.|
