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!

N Smith 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.

Just want to check in! Hows your pup doing? Weighed mine (He's now 18 weeks I believe?) and at 32 pounds. I still feel as if he is small!

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.
