Mine are GSDs. They don't get anywhere near 100#. Of course they are all girls, but when they aren't pregnant, the biggest will be fat at 75 maybe. Cujo was a pretty big guy, I think he topped out at 86, but he could have maybe carried 90-92 without being fat, so someone could've probably gotten him over 100 if they did not mind him looking like a coffee table.

Wow. That is really big for 8 months!!
I have no idea what Jaxx weighs now, guessing around 97 pounds. But he weighed 85 pounds at 8 months.
Sounds like you got a big fella on your hands

My male (4.5 years old) is currently 84lbs and in good working condition.

My female (2.5 years old) is 61lbs and could loose another pound or two - working on it now that we are training weekly again.

My male is about 92 # and he is 11. When he was 4 or 5 I let him get too fat and he went above 100 for a little bit but I was rightfully worried about his hips and back end and made him slim down some.

Ranger may be getting close, he was mid 90s at the last vet visit. He's built to carry that much, thick head and legs, but very lean and ribby feeling. He looks much larger than he though, people tend to think he's over 100.

Riley is 3.5yrs old, 27" at the withers and typically weighs in between 76-80lbs. The vet, and I, do not wish for him to exceed 80lbs. He is in great condition. However, I imagine optimal weight, for any given dog, varies a lot dog-to-dog based on height, bone density, etc... others with more expertise can comment more on that.

GSD's are not supposed to be that asking "when" as if they are all supposed to hit that, is the wrong question....I have no problem with breeders accidentally having larger pups...but this mentality in the US of breeding larger than standard dogs, attaching some kind of machoism to it is ridiculous, and the WORST claiming it is some throwback to what the GSD was supposed to be...Below are the thoughts from the creator of the breed, on size....

"Physical size exercises great influence on ability to move, for with increase of size, weight grows more in proportion than the strength available for movement, which depends on the density of the muscles, and thereby suffers not only in that particular part of its service which demands endurance, but also in the suppleness of the body, and the power of making quick and sharp turns, sudden stops, and the surmounting of obstacles. Increased weight exercises as well a strong pressure on the supporting frame of the skeleton which affects the bones themselves, as well as the ligaments and muscles .... An excess of size is ... an unserviceable feature for breeding (because) his powers of endurance, his speed and the smartness of his movements suffer in all circumstances. Giants are never nimble.... Such dogs then use themselves up quickly when they are eager and full of ardor. They are, however, generally, lazy and easy-going and for that very reason are already unfit for service."
