Kira height and length at 8 months... Is this it?

Kira will be 8 months next week, and next to any GSD, she looks like a 4 month old puppy.
She's STILL 53 pounds, 22 inches at the withers.

This doesn't mean I'm unhappy. I'm VERY happy. She's agile, and runs like a bat out of h*ll.

All I'm asking is what to expect in growth from this point on?

Should I expect more height or length?
Or should she just fill out and gain a few pounds?

At 8 months, Kopper was still a little bit shorter than my adult male GSD. At 14 months, he's maybe 1/2 an inch taller and still lanky as all get-out. Saturday at class we saw a friend we hadn't seen since he was maybe 9 or 10 months and they said, "Whoa, Kopper GREW!"

Hope that helps.

Your dog has a good bit more growing to do. My female at 8 months was 23.5 in tall and weighed about 53 lbs. I just measured and weighed her the other day and at 14 months, she weighs a very slim 61 lbs and was almost 25" tall. The growth in height actually surprised me because 3-4 months ago she was 24" exactly. I think the filling out process definitely makes them appear bigger too.

That's what I figure with Kira. Her mom is a small 68 lbs.

Is she a WGSL?

She'll grow up and out some.

you bought your dog from one of the top
breeders. your dog sets the standard. those
other dogs look to compare to Kira, Kira
doesn't look to compare to other dogs.
