First, it's shepHERD - GSDs are a herding breed.
Puppies grow at different rates, so it's difficult to predict how big she'll ultimately get. For example, my boy Keefer was 7 pounds less at 6 months old than his half sister Dena was at the same age, but as adults he ended up outweighing her by nearly 10 pounds, so that difference was made up and more as he matured.
The best way to guess her adult size is to look at the parents. There is a 22 pound range from the high and low end of the breed standard for an adult female, so I wouldn't be worried if she's not as big as some of the other puppies you've seen. Do you know how she compared to her littermates?
My pup was actually one of the bigger pups in her litter and yet she is I believe the smallest at 2.5 years. She is only 62lbs and 23'. All pups grow at different rates.
