Please post height at withers (shoulders), and male or female. I need to measure mine again.

I didn’t measure past dogs. But my female is 21”, male is almost 27” and my last male was 29-30”. He was big.

Sheba stands a ridiculously-tall 29-1/4" at the withers, has an enormous 35" chest circumference and measures 21" around the neck. And she is STILL growing! Sheba has had 12 Panosteitis flare-ups to date. (is currently almost 22 months) Here she is at just 10 and 14 months:

Shelby is right at 22" she was 47lbs when she got weighed before being spayed. Probably about 50lbs at a healthy weight. Lots of people ask how old she is and can't believe she's 4. Honestly would love any future GSDs to be closer to her size. Nice having a dog you can pick up if needed.

Yes, this! As our Sheba is still growing at almost 22 months, she is now too large for either of us to be able to pick her up. We won't even know her exact weight until the next vet trip, as we can no longer weigh her on the bathroom scales.

I would be curious to see if the dogs were intact or not, and if neutered, at what age.

Good question...
Interestingly both of my males were early neuters and neither turned out tall and leggy. Both have rather “feminine” heads tho and Tilden is a bit narrow in the chest.

Gia spayed at approx 10 months,
Coda spayed at approx a year,
Tilden neutered at 10 months,
Keystone neutered at just under 8 months.

My female was a ped spay, 21” but her legs are long for her size. She is tiny. My male is intact, and my very tall male I lost 3 years ago was neutered by a rescue before I got him at around age 6. He was large and solid. For some reason, I never measured any dogs before that.

Zage (F) is roughly 22" and always hovers around 50lbs.

I was told she was spayed around 8 months, but she's not overly leggy. Definitely a more petite female (I often get asked how old my "puppy" is), but I like her size. I call her my "travel size" GSD when met with incredulity at her non-largeness.

Our new 9 month old girl is 26” at the shoulders. Just wish she wasn’t so thin looking! People ask if I feed her. Ugh. She’s very tall and gangly

My Rio is a equal mix of WGSL and working lines. If that is helpful, and I’m not sure how much more he will grow.

Generally asl can be taller lighter bone but size varies. I have seen some really tall working lines. My working line - ddr - a little bit shorter with shorter neck or just different neck set with a very large head and bulkier.
