alpha's weight and height, is this about normal?

Hello my dog seems a bit smaller than some GSDs I have seen around.. he is 26 inches tall from floor to shoulder blade and he weights about 75 pounds. What do you think, is this about normal for a 1 year and 10 month old GSD?

Did you check and compare your pup with the top sticky's on this site --> Development & Socialization - German Shepherd Dog Forums

Also, the reason we all buy our pups from responsible breeders is we can then call them right up and ask questions like this. They will also be able to quickly update you on the health and growth of the rest of the litter. So reassuring.

He will probably fill out a bit yet. I have pictures of my dog- one taken at one year, the other taken at two years, and he filled out A LOT between 1 and 2. My male is also 26 inches at the shoulder, but he is heavily boned- half WGSL half DDR. We weighed him yesterday, and he is now 98.3 lbs! I was guessing between 85-90, so it was a surprise. He is in perfect body condition after we struggled forever to get him to keep weight on.
