Hi Alexandra - you need to watch your typing, the makes your post hard to understand.

Can you post a picture of your pup? How much are you feeding her? where do you live?

I am sorry for the typing errors . I live in Florida and my vet told me to give the puppy one cup and a half every day. My puppy waist is skinny-imageuploadedbypg-free1368275147.162149.jpgMy puppy waist is skinny-imageuploadedbypg-free1368275249.214656.jpg

Not enough food. I can see her hip bones. She needs about three cups a day.
Also, you may want to feed a different food. Iams is not that great.

The bag of puppy food should tell you how much you need to feed her depending on her weight but my pup gets 1 cup three times a day.

I need to watch my typing too - I meant to say that the autocorrect makes the post hard to understand. (Autocorrect is EVIL).

A cup and a half is not enough for a GSD pup - they grow so fast, and are high-energy dogs, your pup should get roughly three cups of kibble a day. But that can vary depending on the food you feed and your pup's needs.

Also as other have said, there are some much better foods out there. The puppy feeding section should have some recommendations that you can try.

I found this site helpful. Dog Food Reviews and Ratings | Dog Food Advisor
There are other sites as well, just do your research, read the labels carefully.

I got good results from the Wellness brand, and the Dog Food Advisor site gave it good reviews iirc. My dog is currently eating Blue Buffalo, though, cause apparently the Wellness made her smell like fish :-\
