Growing Up

Kamahi's head is a little small... I'm not sure if this is just because he's only 7 months, or if it will stay like this? (His dad didn't have such a small face..)

Also, are their tails like their ears, they're born with their adult ears/tail? (Serious question) His tail used to fit his size, and now it's too small! lol

And I think he'll eventually grow into his legs, but those two things above are what I'm worrying about most.

And he's already showing signs of the "butthead stage"
This stage is the one I've been dreading lol.

Will do!


His head seems a bit small to me...compared to the "average size" head...do you think it will get any bigger as he gets older?


And shouldn't his tail be down to the ground? I'm thinking it's a little too short.

He's cute. Yes they go through awkward stages until they're 2 or 3 - the head is too small, the legs are too long, the body is too skinny. Tail looks normal though, you don't want that swishing in the dirt like a show dog - the reason their tails are on the ground is they're walking on their hocks not just their feet.

When Karlo was that age, his tail looked really long, he grew into it, along with his ears. I wouldn't worry about anything at this age, it is the gangly stage and will pass. Parts can't keep up with other parts!

Thank you so much! I've just been worried because this is my first GSD, and I get a bit "over concerned."
This just reminds me to stop worrying about every little thing and enjoy the rest of the puppy stage as much as I can!
