Is my GSD going to be small?

I was just told that my GSD is pretty small for being 5 months old. Take a look at my pics on my page and tell me what you think.

Looks about right to me. So who told you that your GSD is small for 5mos? Some bozo at a pet store is one thing, a knowledgeable GSD breeder is another opinion altogether.
The GSD is a MEDIUM sized dog, not a giant breed (regardless of what people think). I have 3 female GSDs, they range in weight from 55lbs to 65lbs and are all within standard.

She looks like a normal size 5 month old pup to me.

Is she going to get bigger? It doesn't really matter to me, Im just curious. She's almost 6 months and is 40 lbs. already. Ive ad her for three weeks and she has already gained 6 lbs.

She's only 5 months of course she'll get bigger.

I wouldn't worry about it. I get told my girl is to small to be a pure bred by random people on a daily basis. My girl was 50lbs at six months old. I was also told today by an "expert" she is American lines because she has a dark face and only American lines have dark faces.
