Who owns an adult 70lbs+

How many dog owners have a GSD female 70+ pounds that thought when your female pup was 4 months old would be on the small side? Do you remember your females weight at 4 months? Please post their heights and weights at the 16 week mark and their adult weights...Should be interesting!

Re: Who owns an adult 70lbs+

Don't have one and wouldn't want one!

My Nina weighed 66# and Bella is 64#. She weighed that at 8 months when I got her. She's 7 now. That is plenty big for me!

I can't remember what the standard is weight wise.

Re: Who owns an adult 70lbs+

When Tessa was puppy, she was tiny, tiny, tiny. I assumed she'd be very petite and I thought if she hit 50 lbs full grown she'd be lucky. I don't remember the specifics you requested, sorry.

That girl was full of surprises because at about 2 years old she had an explosion in growth and weight.

She topped off at 90 lbs and she was solid as a rock.

I'm confused, did you want adults or just females?

Buck is 100 lbs. Don't know his puppy weights I adopted him when he was 1 y.o.

Jax is 67# right now and 25" tall. She was about 25# when I got her at 3-4 months and ran just under the norm until about 11 months.

Re: Who owns an adult 70lbs+

Can't say anything about puppy weight.

My rescue girl was 65 when I got her, she's about 3 they say. Vet says she should be 70 or 75 by her size. She's was 68 on the last visit and I can't see her ribs anymore, and I can't feel em so easily now.

I think 75 would be an ok weight for her once I get her working harder and in better shape but it would be the top end.

Standards for females depends on which standard I guess, I read AKC as 45-110 FCI as 48-70lbs

Re: Who owns an adult 70lbs+

I remember when i first got lucy, i was so worried because she wouldn't eat much that she wouldn't grow. She was always on the small size until around 4 to 5 months when she had a big growth spurt. I have all my old vet records so i can look back if you need exact weights but she was definitely on the small size at first.

She's now 14 months and 24.5'' at the withers and a very solid 70 pounds. I get comments sometimes saying she's skinny, but it's best to keep these dogs on the slender side, especially if they're still maturing... better for their hips and joints.

Actually, Dena was the opposite - she was a big boned girl, and quite large as a puppy. My vet guessed that she'd be 85-90 pounds. I don't remember what she weighed at 16 weeks, but she was 19 pounds at 9 weeks old, and 63 pounds at 6 months old. But she only put on another 9 or 10 pounds total, ending up at 72/73 pounds as an adult.

Re: Who owns an adult 70lbs+

I have an American line GSD female that is 96 lbs....4 yrs old...larger than breed standard...28 1/2 inches at the withers...
the vet wants her to lose 10 pounds, she only gets 3 cups of food a day, and I thought for sure she would lose weight when we got our puppy in the fall.....well she actually did lose some, she used to be 101..
at 4 months i'm guessing(but i'll check when i get home) 31 lbs
