bubbles is jumbo sized?

All the puppies we meet her age are so much smaller. We walked around aimlessly last night and there was a 6 month old male boxer. She dwarfed him. I was surprised the boxer was older. She is 4 months last check up at the vet she like 22 pound . How big is she going to be ? She's not fat she is gaining good muscles.

German shepherds are larger than boxers, in general. You cant really compare her to other breeds her same age, as they are just that-different breeds and different sizes.

Failure *is* success, if you learn from it.

Actually, that weight seems low to me. Lila was at least 35 pounds at that age, and she is a lean 75 pounds at 16 months.

Yeah, my pup was about 20 lbs at 2 months, 30 lbs at 3 months etc etc. She's starting to slow down now, 6 months old, she's about 55 lbs. Which surprises me, she's very long & lean, I can't believe how much she weighs already!

And yes, she was much bigger than the boxers at her puppy class, they are smaller dogs.

We have Boxers and a GSD. You really can't compare the two. Boxers are more compact and should max out about 65#. Jax weighs less than Banshee and still is larger. Two completely different breeds with different purposes.
