Help me on my 6 months GSD male early growth :(

Hello Friends,
My 6 months GSD male reached 25 inches(65 cm) His weight is normal. When i checked yesterday. I measured from shoulders to feet. Based on standard guide. Basically a 6 months GSD male pup should weight 24-26KG and height 46 cm(18 inches). He reached 65 cm too early. I am worried now. Is he going to get some more height in next few months?

DOB: 25/12/2018
Gender: Male
Name: Aadhi
Weight: 25kg ( 55 lbs )
Height 65 cm(25 inches)

Feeding: 3 times a day
Morning and night RoyalCanin Maxi Junior
Lunch: Chicken (,Carrot/Beetroot -small piece)

Don't look at charts. Every dog is different. Those charts are averages. Mine is 25" and 18 months old. She is perfect. Yours is too. He is going to be a big boy! It is just his genetics.

I am just curious as to how his overall appearance is. That weight is awful low for a dog that height.

If you need equipment to maintain control of your dog, understand youíre hanging on to your dogís body because youíve lost his mind!

Hi My Friend,

I took this when he is 5.5 months old(20 days before). I will share his recent pics soon.

Secret: Height is mostly a genetically determined thing. He's going to get as big as his genetics determine he's going to get.

That said, you can usually get a pretty good idea of what your GSD will look like as an adult based on the parents. However big they are, is often about how big yours will be. Just like people, dogs take after the parents, and sometimes dogs are more like one parent than the other.

For example, our dog's mother was 95 lbs with shorter, sleeker fur, and a tall frame. The father was 135 lbs with thicker, fluffier fur, and also a tall frame. Our dog is 93 lbs, lean, and looks exactly like his mother. His brother, though we only saw him as a tiny pup, was clearly going to take after the father given that he was physically larger and had fluffier fur.



Now, I said it's mostly genetic. There's a hormonal component as well. Dogs that are neutered young tend to grow taller. Their bones are longer and less dense, sometimes resulting in joint problems later in life. Dogs that are not neutered remain at the size they're meant to be, and their bones tend to be shorter, thicker, and more dense. The result is a stockier frame.

Hi Friend,
If possible could you please share your Pets recent pics and the one when he was pup. Based on the DP it looks similar to mine. Just a curiosity to image how my pup look when he become adult.

Just my opinion, but your pup is painfully thin. Maybe it is just me but in the pictures he seems to be favoring his right front leg, pano perhaps? How much are you feeding him? How is his appetite?
