I just weighed my female GSD puppy...

And she weighs 50 pounds on the dot. Is this a good weight? Can I know how much more she will gain? Will she be a small, medium, large gsd? I'm new to all this stuff so any input will help! Thanks a ton!!!

Age? Bloodlines? (West German, Show, G Show, Czech, etc?) Parents weight? Body type/structure?

It's hard to predict a dog's future weight from a "snapshot" of what they weigh at a certain point in time because they grow at such different weights.

Think about a 4th or 5th grade classroom. Some of the kids are as big as the teacher, and some of the kids are still quite small. Some of the girls are going through puberty, and some won't go through it for several years yet. It's the same thing with dogs. They grow and mature at different rates.

That said, my male was 57lb at 6 months and is now 75lb at 1 year. Most of their growth occurs by 1 year old, but they continue to get a little bigger until around 3. Dunno if that helps or not.
