Is this normal???

I recently got a Sable German Shepherd puppy at 6 weeks and he’s currently 8 weeks. I don’t know if I’m worrying about nothing or not but are hips supposed to look like this? It looks thin... does he fill out once he gets older or is something wrong

I'm not sure what you think is abnormal...? It is a puppy with TONS of growing to do.. Bones aren't even fully. Formed at 8weeks and pup won't stop growing until around 3 (most of the height will happen by 8mos,but filling out up to 3)..

He looks fine. He’s a baby. Take lots of pictures you can go back and look at later because he will change almost daily. And yes, German Shepherds are supposed to have waists.
