My four year old rescued/adopted male GSD behaves in EXACTLY the same way and I finally found something that will get him to eat his kibble. My Max is 30 inches tall and now weighs about 95 pounds. When rescued, he was closer to 70 pounds - so weight gain was essential.
After determining that he had SIBO at the end of May, we really needed for him to eat. I tried canned cat food, canned dog food, boiled chicken, cooked hamburger, several different cheeses, you name it. What finally got him eating and eating nearly all of every meal was some raw chicken or turkey. He now gets a chicken wing or part of a turkey neck (1/2 or 1/3) in his bowl with his kibble and some canned dog food. Now he eats and eats without being a 95 pound drama queen.
