How big do you think she will get?

Athena is 8 months old now. I took her to the vet last week at about 8 months and a week old and she weighed 62.2 lbs. How much larger would you guess I should expect her to get? I'm assuming her weight gain should drastically slow down. She is starting to put on some real muscle mass in her legs.

Athena -GSD- born 12/13/12
Luna -Shepherd Mix- born 3/20/99

A fully grown average female shepherd will weigh 65-75 Lbs depending on actual height at the shoulders and girth. GSD's are a large breed, but not a giant. So she is probably just about as big as she is going to get physically and will fill out a bit as she matures and gets toned up if she is not being over fed.

How big were her parents? She will be closer to the size of her mother... that is what you should be looking at but that't not always the case... Diesel was 20lbs/3-4 inches smaller than both her parents and the smallest of the litter at only 45lbs fully grown. Penny is 52lbs and although I dont know the exact weight of her parents or their height I saw them and they were BIG but Penny is 10 months and hasnt really grown much the last 1 - 2 months so Im thinking she has hit her max height and may fill out another 10lbs or so as she ages a bit to her full maturity

I would expect Athena is it? To be around 70lbs fully grown more if she gets over weight
