Small girl?

Heidi's mom was 90lbs daddy was 110. Out of a litter of 9 she was probably one of the smallest. At 8 wks old she was 6lbs. She is 3 months now and 21lbs. Ya think she may just be small? Or is this a good progession for her?? just curious thanks ya'll!

Re: Small girl?

At 3 months, Timber was 27 lbs, so only a few lbs. ahead. Now, he's almost 6 months and 60 lbs. so I wouldn't worry.

Re: Small girl?

Sounds like both Mom & Dad are over-sized and/or Very Fat!!

She sounds very average sized for 3 months, Female GSD to the Standard should be 65 to 70 Lbs.

Re: Small girl?

20lbs at 3 months is perfect for Heidi.

Here's a link to our boards Growth Chart thread. Page 8 has the most current chart.

New puppy owners have been so kind to measure the height and weight of their growing pup every month and post it there. Catu has compiled the data and made it simple to see how your puppy measures up to others. We'd love to have another pup's growth input if you would like to start keeping track and posting Heidi's growth.

Here's my train of thought, you can follow it if you want.
