Opinions on this Male, Please

I would really like your opinions on my male. Please keep them respectful but I do value your honest opinions. In the pictures, he is about 20 month old. I am concerned that he is too small but he is within the standard. I measured him at about 18 months and he was 24.5 inches. I think he has grown but haven't measured him again.

His pedigree: Kaiser Vom Kuhjunge Schnitt - German Shepherd Dog

Thanks!

He is gorgeous! There is no specific size for a GSD. I know someone who has a 6 year old, 40 pound Shepherd, and someone else who has one that is 3 years old, and 105 pounds.

There's nothing wrong with his size. I think you've been looking at all the over-sized dogs out there to think yours is too small.

He's a good looking dog.

So there is a specific size? It sounded like the AKC standard talked about the desired size, that would be the specific size also I guess. I was saying that there is a HUGE range in size, there is no "If your dog is taller than 27 inches, it's a faulty dog." Or is there?

I'm no expert on conformation, but he's a fine looking dog to me! If I had to criticize, the only thing I could say is that his front feet look a bit flat. I prefer a nicely arched cat foot. And he would look much nicer if groomed for the photo!
