How tall is your German Shepherd?

Please post height at withers (shoulders), and male or female. I need to measure mine again.

I didn’t measure past dogs. But my female is 21”, male is almost 27” and my last male was 29-30”. He was big.

Sheba stands a ridiculously-tall 29-1/4" at the withers, has an enormous 35" chest circumference and measures 21" around the neck. And she is STILL growing! Sheba has had 12 Panosteitis flare-ups to date. (is currently almost 22 months) Here she is at just 10 and 14 months:

Ryka is female and measures 26" at the shoulder, as is just over 2 years old now.

The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.

Shelby is right at 22" she was 47lbs when she got weighed before being spayed. Probably about 50lbs at a healthy weight. Lots of people ask how old she is and can't believe she's 4. Honestly would love any future GSDs to be closer to her size. Nice having a dog you can pick up if needed.

Yes, this! As our Sheba is still growing at almost 22 months, she is now too large for either of us to be able to pick her up. We won't even know her exact weight until the next vet trip, as we can no longer weigh her on the bathroom scales.

I would be curious to see if the dogs were intact or not, and if neutered, at what age.

Time itself is a very powerful component of learning. So learn to wait. Learn to forgive. Learn to backup. It's all necessary for learning.

Teach! Teach! Teach! Be fair to your dog!

Good question...
Interestingly both of my males were early neuters and neither turned out tall and leggy. Both have rather “feminine” heads tho and Tilden is a bit narrow in the chest.
