He looks just fine to me. Seems everyone nowadays expects GSDs to be enormous. He's perfect just the way he is!

Not the greatest angles for viewing a dog's weight, but from what I can tell he's not too skinny! He looks good to me! Welcome to the forum!

He looks good! Especially for a year old. He will fill out a little more over the next 1-2 years.

Looks absolutely fine. Similar to mine who is 80lb. I used to think my boy was skinny but when you look at the male GSD standards it's 66-88lb. People who don't really understand, expects GSDs to be as big as rottweilers. Truth is they're not bred to be XL.

Weight looks fine. Just a young dog in his lanky stage.

Many have forgotten what a healthy dog weight looks like. Even in the shows dogs seem over weight. E.g with the Whippets: if they are in show condition, they are too heavy for coursing and v.v.
