How big should a female GSD be at 4 months?

Remi just turned 4 months on march 19th and went to the vet the day after and weighed in at 27 lbs. two weeks before that she was 22 lbs. she's not a lanky girl and actually very proportional except for her ears and she always has been. The vet said for the first time that she thinks she may only get up to 35 lbs because she looks proportional!! However I'm a little confused because she's only four months old and I don't understand how she could only gain maybe 8 more pounds. Her parents were also very decent sized dogs as well. Does this sound normal to anyone???

Definitely doesn't sound right, mine was 21lbs at 3mo so it seems like you're pretty well on track at least with mine, and her parents were decent sized as well. I'd be completely shocked if yours stopped at 35lbs.

I thought so as well!!! She seems to be actually having a growth spurt to me as she gained 5 lbs in two weeks. She's pretty stocky as well, I thought she could be even a little leaner than she is. I didn't really think her being proportional would mean she'd stop growing anytime soon
