No. He is not small for his age. It's important not to lose sight of the fact that
1) Puppies all grow at different rates...some put on mass very early, some wait until later.
2) There are varying degrees of "bone" in puppies. Some dogs are very heavily boned to the point of almost being overdone, while others are not. This can happen even within litters.
3) People seem partial to big dogs. So there are a number of puppies out there who are a good deal larger than perhaps they ought to be.
From what I've seen Wolfie looks just fine and will probably develop into an appropriately sized GSD if not on the large side. Consider that right now in height he is at the bottom of standard for an ADULT GSD...he can only grow another 2 inches tall to be correct in height and probably only another 10-15 lbs. That means that in the next few months his growth will slow considerably. I certainly wouldn't be concerned about him being too small.
