My 1 year old GSD weighs 53lbs. Is this normal?
My husband and I (who are both first-time dog parents) rescued our 1 y.o. GSD about 5 weeks ago. We took him to the vet a few days later and had him weighed and he weighed 52 lbs. I haven't taken him to the vet recently, but he doesn't look like he has gained much weight. Based on that graph floating around, he should weigh closer to 75 lbs.
We feed him almost double the recommended amount, but all it seems to do is just increase his number of poops per day. It also seems that he hasn't seemed to "grow into his paws" yet as many many people have commented on how big he is going to be based on his paws.
Should I be concerned at all?
