Not necessarily... My female weighed about that much at that age. she is now 16 months old and weighs 65 lbs. I say the 70 lb range most likely. 80... perhaps, but just speaking from my female ruby. Each dog is different, as her lineage is different than mya's as well.My Mya is 4.7 months and weighs 45lbs. How much do you guys think she will weigh when she's full grown? Is it possible she will be in the 70-80lbs range?..
Yes actually, i posted some pictures today of both oh my dogs playing in the snow. she is the black and tan. I posted onto this thread.... the first pictures arent of my dogs...Thanks for the input. Do you have a recent picture of your female GSD?
I was thinking the about the same for my Mya. She has a Huge Torso and paws!It's really hard to say. At 17wks my girl weighed 43lbs, and she was 85lbs at a year old, just a couple months ago. I think she has a little filling out to do yet, and I'm expecting her to settle in somewhere between 90 and 95lbs.
Well then ive got a question... kinda off subject a little bit. My female has had pano off an on for about 6 months now... and it has nothing to do with size. she is a petite GSD. Any GSD i have brought her around she has always been the smaller framed petite girl.A mix of American pet lines and East German WL,Onyx was very large as a pup~ ear/paws...she went thru a few bouts of Pano til she hit a year old. It wasn't diet related(rawfed), she was just large in structure for a female.
Well, till about a week ago i was feeding blue buffalo chicken and rice adult dog food. I had her on the large breed puppy till about 10..11 months of age. And i am now starting Raw feeding. (not pre packaged raw either)Mrs Woodcock, what do you feed? Many times diet will play a role in Pano bouts...vitamin C will shorten the bout because it reduces inflammation. The two dogs I've had(both fed raw and not premade raw) that went thru it are large in structure, grew slow though, just huge compared to the norm.
C shortened the bout of my male bigtime. Onyx suffered thru a long one before I found out the benefits of C.
Start at 500mg human grade and up it(over a weeks time) to 2000mg daily split between meals, then that can be the maintenance dosage for the life of the dog, it won't hurt at all and has many benefits.
LOL,,, I wasnt concerned so much. I just think he looks funny. I dant know about American vs German lines sine I didnt get him from a breeder...just an accidental litter in the country. Both parents are registered. I figure his daddy was about 70# and that's where he'll probably end up.Also about the ears - five to six month old puppies always seem to have HUGE ears in relation to their overall size, but it is only an illusion due to their smaller, still growing head and body. Aspen will catch up to his ears, and they won't look so out of proportion.
