Isaac at 24months. -critique *corrected*

Isaac was 2 years in December, and that is when I took this picture. He is a bit on the light side, weighing only 75lbs. Besides needing a little more socialization (he is somewhat shy), he is great (fast to learn, full of energy, etc).




He earned his CGC before he was a year old, but I've stopped there. I've been debating getting his hips x-rayed, but I've haven't had any real motivation to do that yet. Let me know what you think.

I'm just under the assumption most males are around 85lbs.

He's fine with people, but he's never had any real interest in other dogs, which struck me as odd. He loves to play with the dogs he grew up with however, so I just took it as lack of socialization on my part.

If you already replied on my previous post, thanks!

Most of the adult GSDs I've met aren't interested in strange dogs or strange people. They love their friends, canine and human, but just don't care for strangers.

He's a good looking dog. Frodo was always on light sight, it took him 3yrs to reach 90lb where he is today. He stayed around 70 for a long time though.

Very handsome dog,! He reminds me of my dog Odin who is almost 24 months and hovers around 78 pounds.
