Growth ???

At what age does a gsd stop growing in size? My pup is at 50 lbs @ 17 weeks old. Is that normal?

I looked back at Karlo's stats and he was 44# at 17 weeks, 21"

He is a Czech/West German working line and was raw fed. Now at three he is just over 90# and 27".

Thank you, I am smitten with him!
By the way, Karlo leveled out at about 8 months....before that he gained 3# per week, though heavy teething had a few weeks of little gain, which I was grateful for.

She's WL and long & lean, but still!

Have you talked to your vet about that?

My pup was about 13-15 lbs when I picked her up at 8 weeks, there might be a medical reason your pup isn't gaining weight? Hopefully it's nothing to worry about, but I'd maybe check into that.
