11 week old GSD weight? Normal?
Now this is what I love to see.
At 9 weeks I took Finnick to a puppy social class. All the dogs were around the same age and the border collie pup was the same size or bigger than Finn!
Worrying about weight in puppies is meaningless and a moot point, as long as your pup looks good for their frame, you have nothing to worry about!

|Anubis_Star||At 8 weeks old my husky was 16 lbs, my shepherd was 8 lbs. Full grown the husky was 65 lbs and the shepherd 80lbs. Worrying about "correct weights" is pointless. Is the puppy HEALTHY for its body type|

I recently had a litter of working line GSD's.
At 6.5 weeks all were weighed at the vet between 12 lbs and 17.5 lbs.
At 8 weeks, all were in the 18-25lb range.
Now at 5 months, they are in the 45-55lb range.
Not sure how "average" that is - but my keeper male is definitely bigger than his sire was at this age. His dam only weighs 58 lbs and he is almost at that weight himself.
All of the puppies will grow at different rates, genetics (along with exercise and proper nutrition) will determine adult size.

|Harry and Lola||15 pounds at 11 weeks is light, generally for an 8 week old male you would want him around 13 to 19 pounds and a 12 week old male around 22 to 30 pounds. These are generalisations only and for showline GSDs, however a good guide to go by. I would keep an eye on him, check his weight at 16 weeks to see if he is between 35 to 39 pounds, if he is not anywhere near this then talk to your vet. He is adorable.|

|ChouMaKen||12 weeks old male 20 lbs here, seems pretty standard as far as I could tell|

|LuvWorkingGSDs||My pup is 11 weeks and only 12 lbs (and around 13"). She's happy, healthy and growing slowly, which is just what I want.|

|Tygerlynx||I just brought my 11 week old GSD pup in for his 2nd shot and he weighs 17 lbs. Maybe we have late bloomers? His parents were both on the larger side.|
