Will my puppy grow to be predicted size?

I have a 13 week gsd female, and she is very small. She weighs about 15 lbs. her dad was about 90 lbs but her mom was only 65. Will she grow to be her moms size? Everyone says she's extremely small and may grow to only be about 45 lbs.. Any ideas?

Nobody can tell for sure, she may end up about the same size as mom, just enjoy having her. Great dogs come in all sizes.

At 13 weeks old it's impossible to predict her adult weight, but her parent's size are a clue.

I would stop listening to "everyone", and stop worrying. Since her mom is within the female standard and her dad is just a bit over the male standard I think it's unlikely that she will end up only 45 pounds.
