If you can afford an upgrade, I'm warning you... it'll be highly suggested here. Get Orijen or Blue Buffalo Large Breed Puppy if you possibly can. I just switched to Orijen and it's great food.

I would definitely get him off of the Beneful. There is byproduct in it, which could be anything, also, lots of food colorings and bha/bht which has been banned in human food due to it's link to cancer. I haven't looked at Proplan in awhile, but i think they use corn as their primary ingredient. Corn is not good to use in dog feeds because it isn't easily digestible. Most companies use it because it's cheap. Stick with the foods that are all natural. I'm sure others on the board would be happy to give you ideas on what food to feed. I myself use Acana Grasslands, but I've tried my pack on the Annamaet Grain Free (their new line), and they liked it so much, that I think I might just as well stay on that for awhile. I also do the raw diet at night for dinner!

P.S. Forgot to add, your baby is sweet!!

beautiful baby....yes, you should change it. Please spend some time reviewing posts on nutrition in the Diet and Nutrition section. There are many, many previous discussions on the subject for greater detail, that will allow you to be comfortable in making a choice on a new food. For the record, I recommend raw, but if that is out of the question, I would recommend Orijen. Good for you for asking and taking the time to consider the best diet.

sorry to tell you...as others have said, not a good food to feed for all the reasons they've given. lots of info here about various foods posted previously (nutrition and diet section). more research on your part is needed, but will be so worth it in the best interest of that cutie pie sheppie boy you've got!!!

check out dogfoodanalysis.com anything with 3 stars and up is good. If you have a Costco near you their Kirkland food is a great cheap option, At petsmart Blue Buffalo is best, but even nutro ultra would be better than beneful. At Petco Wellness supermix is best but they also carry natural balance, and solid gold. Tractor supply will have Diamond which I'm not a fan of but their diamond naturals line is better than beneful and the 4health brand is getting some good feedback.

check out this section as well there are tons of posts about food Feeding Our Puppy - German Shepherd Dog Forums

**ETA***
If you can find it and afford it I highly recommend Orijen LBP

ask for trial or sample size bags. Try feeding with dry food only if you keep mixing in the canned food you'll have a very picky eater

Also, If money is tight, a few decent quality brands of food are 4 heath (by tractor supply), Kirkland Dogfood (Cosco's brand) and for a little bit more, Either Chicken Soup for teh Dog Lover's Soul, or Merrick's Whole Earth farms.

another decent food if money is tight, is Nature's Recipe..At petsmart/petco, it's around 35-39$ for a 40# bag, has no wheat, no corn, no soy..
