He looks tall and lanky. My pup has a similar build, but I think your dog looks taller, hard to tell with pictures. Anyway mine was 53 pounds at 6 months and is 67 pounds at 9 months.

Where do I measure to get his hight? And I think that's the problem with his leg and making him limp

This is how I have read to do it. I have not measured my pups height yet.

You’ll need a level surface adjoining a blank wall, a carpenter’s level, a pencil and a metal measuring tape or a yardstick. You also need a helper unless your dog is perfectly trained to hold a stand-stay. Have your helper position the dog so it is in the above position, with the dog's head level. Place the carpenter’s level across the withers, letting it rest on the bone, one end at the wall. Move the ends of the level until the bubble is exactly in the center of the level indicator, then use your pencil to mark the wall underneath the level where it touches the wall. Move your dog away from the wall and measure the distance from the mark to the floor. If you have been careful - and honest - you now have an accurate measurement of your dog’s height.

Awesome, thank you! How do people tell if he's a working dog or show dog?

I think that is about the lineage of dogs that have been used in breeding to produce your dog, its pedigree. Without that pedigree I don't know if you can consider or honestly say a dog is one or the other. I think....
I am about the least person qualified to answer that question lol but some how I managed to form that assumption.

Talk to the breeder you got him from, that would be the best way to find out his heritage. He's got some growing to do yet, but he's a good looking dog!

My wife actually talked to the breeder today, but told me tolate I had some questions to ask, but the breeder regretted getting rid of him so much she got another one that's 8 month old now. Sounds like she's going to breed him though

Nice to see other lanky black GSDs here! Our girl Jaeger is 75 lbs at 3 years old. I've read that many black GSDs are working line instead of show line, but I am not 100% sure.
