Hello Everyone.

I have read that the average weight of a female GSD at 4 Months is approximately 33 Pounds (15 KGs).

Delta is 4 Months today and is 44 Pounds (20KG). I have attached a photo from above for comment on potentially being overweight?

Comments welcome...

Thanks

Do you know anything about her parents?
(I think she looks good, not overweight).
Thanks for the reply... I agree, she doesn't seem overweight to me, but I'm certainly no expert.

I don't know much about the parents. My wife picked Delta up as a surprise gift. She tells me that she saw the mother and grandmother, who were both very large. Sorry, that doesn't help much.

Juno was 33 lbs at 4 months. She is the runt of her litter and had her biggest growth spurt between months three and four. She slowed down around 6 months. She's 29 kg/64 lbs at 14 months.

If Delta's mother and grandmother are large, then chances are....

I would not worry too much as long as the puppy is healthy and active etc.

What did the vet say?

It looks like Delta is going to be quite large like her mother and grandmother. She's a pretty girl.

My boy was over 50 lbs at 4 months and is now nearly 90 lbs at almost 7 months. For especially big pups, it's important to keep them as skinny as possible at this age.

I have the same concerns about my girls they are much heavier than the average weight charts... the thing is, just like your girl, they arentvisually overweight.
