Hello Friends,
My 6 months GSD male reached 25 inches(65 cm) His weight is normal. When i checked yesterday. I measured from shoulders to feet. Based on standard guide. Basically a 6 months GSD male pup should weight 24-26KG and height 46 cm(18 inches). He reached 65 cm too early. I am worried now. Is he going to get some more height in next few months?

DOB: 25/12/2018
Gender: Male
Name: Aadhi
Weight: 25kg
Height 65 cm(25 inches)

Feeding: 3 times a day
Morning and night RoyalCanin Maxi Junior
Lunch: Chicken (,Carrot/Beetroot -small piece)

You shouldn't worry too much, most of the GSD has a height spurt till 6 months then they slow down a bit. After that, they grow slowly. Its all like a human child, some tend to grow early and some tend to fill out later in their teens. As long as the dog is healthy and active, height doesn't need to be bothersome.

Just a side note, what I feel the height chart coming up in Google is archaic and no longer has any significance.
The thread here offer much more accurate figure: https://www.germanshepherds.com/threads/height-growth-chart.88824/#post-1217042
