Is there a form of gigantism in German Shepherds?
I have this one,4 months old,29 kilos,his parents are 35 kilos-father 28-mother.
So is he only just a very large GSD or is this some sort of gigantism(He isn't out of proportions,he is fine,even does look a bit thin to me:eek: )?
Do you have pictures? Seems very large indeed. Are you sure of his age?

i have pictures,but my internet is making me some problems so can't upload them now,
I'm sure of his age by two things
1.the breeder has given me the date when he has born
2.he is losing his teeth now(which normally does happen at 4-5 months)
How tall is he at the withers? (inches) Can the breeder say if he has any
'giants' in his background? Maybe he is an early bloomer. I hope some others who have had this type of experience will jump in.
Many years ago I got the runt of the litter who grew to be over 30" and was just a big GSD, not a giant.

29 kilos and 23.5 inches...... hard to believe you consider him thin.
He must be very long.
