I am not sure what color he would be categorized if anyone can tell by the pictures? (Please excuse my ignorance, I promise I am trying to learn as much as I can about my little guy)

Welcome !!

That picture of Goose makes him look as innocent as the day is long.....these GSDs sure can be actors.

Enjoy every moment of their puppyhood as I'm sure you are. So many things which you do today and during the next few months will make a huge difference in the development of Gustav....take advantage and you will be blown away at what an incredible companion Das Gansmeister becomes.

Oh....impressive....that young and his ears are up and looking great,

Cheers to the new pup,

That picture made me laugh....the coy expression....the 'butter wouldn't melt in my mouth" look. Oh you are in for a lively time. He looks like a black and brown with a blanket from what I can see. Oh yeah... and them ears. ROFL

More pictures, please.

Haha thank you guys! He sure is a sweetie. I already have him giving me paw and we are learning how to sit now! He is such a love. The potty training is funny I walk him outside and he runs and pees when I walk in the door lol. We will get there though! And his ears yes! I get that a lot haha I love them but hear that they can go down when teething so I am not getting used to them being up :)

Here is another picture of him. He looks big for 8 weeks to me but he's "only" 13.2lbs and I've seen some on here saying theirs was close to 18lbs at that age so maybe he's small? Lol

You'll never really know until he is fully grown. Weight has been removed from most of the breed standards, as height seems to be a better way to designate within/under/over breed standard. A dog can be over or underweight, based on diet and exercise. So many people seem to worry if their dog is small, while others desire a BIG (aka oversized and outside of the breed standard) dog. Here is a reminder, to include the old weight standard, of a fully grown GSD:


The German Shepherd Dog is a medium-size, slightly stretched, strong, and well muscled, with the “bone” dry and firm in the over-all construction.

  • Height at the wither 60 cm to 65 cm (23.62 inches - 25.59 inches)
  • Weight 30 kg to 40 kg. (66.14 pounds - 88.18 pounds; Midrange = 77 pounds

Hope that helps! Pup is cute. I'm jealous. Haha! And welcome to this wonderful website.
