My female 18 week old GSD weighs 30 pounds & from her back to the floor is 19 inches. Is she small for her age? She's healthy but she just seems on the small side. Everyone states shes big for her age but I just cant tell.

Okay, my girl will officially be 18 weeks tomorrow & she may weigh more than 30 but its difficult attempting to weigh her at home, because her vet appointment isnt until this coming wednesday! We'll know then :) lol

Zeus, my male from GiantGermanShepherds.com breeder...

was 57 lbs. at the vet the day after his 18th week b-day. He's probably 60 now that he'll be almost 5 months on the 19th.

And, don't get the idea that he's overweight. He has that nice concavity of the abdomen between his thighs and rib cage and the trainer says he's got a perfect shape.

There were a few weeks when he was putting on 1/3rd lb. a day.

I guess he'll be a real giant.
