Shasta is 75% show, and 25% working. Getting lazier as we grow up....... 17 months old.

25" and 60ish pounds. Raw fed from puppy hood, and intact. Always lean and eats like a horse. Actually, I think a horse eats less.......

I should have asked which lines the dog are, too. Aren’t ASL tallest and WL shortest?
I think they have been cracking down on height for the West German showlines. I have been hearing about some pretty small dogs.

can’t say I’m mad. My cousins had a WGSL import (2007) who was 30”. Beautiful dog, great temperament, but absurdly large. Several adults could fit in his crate.

My WGSL is about that size. He is the kind of dog that would fit in with most families. Nice dog. His nickname is Lurch.

Nuts, 100lbs?
...and yes, Mambo was an excellent family dog. Active household, tons of new ppl and kids all ages in and out all the time. Nice off switch too.

My very tall and solid pet line rescue didn’t weigh all that much. He was usually right around 85. Some of those big dogs are big boned too, which weighs more.

Areli, working line, 5yrs old certified SAR dog for trailing, HRD (land and water) and evidence (includes GSR) , 26.75" and 97lbs last vet weight.. Lean, athletic, and pulls like a freight train Trailing.

Hokhmah, working line, 9mos old SAR in training for trailing, HRD land and water and evidence (includes GSR) is 24.75" and last weighed (2wks ago) was 68lbs. She is fine boned and seems Itty-bitty compared to Areli, but lightning fast and drives through the roof.

Akivah is GSD /malamute mix, 5yrs old, SAR trailing, HRD land and water certified, 26.75" and 92lbs.

Bud was WL, about 27" and a lean 95lbs. Intact and built like a tank
Lex was WL 26" and around 70lbs. Spayed at 11 months and leggy
Sabs was presumed ASL pet stock, 28" and 82lbs lean. Spayed at 3 years old and heavy boned, solid girl.
Shadow is presumed ASL pet stock, 23" and around 50lbs normally. Intact and has a pretty solid build for a little girl.

Sabs and Shadow both came from less then ethical breeders and a majority of the BYB's in the area used ASL dogs. Shadows breeder had a very pretty registered WGWL on the property that was returned to her breeder after the dogs were seized so all things are possible.

I can’t imagine the females wgsl getting any smaller from what I have seen. I sure hope they don’t shrink them that would be a “big” mistake.

My working line was 90lbs and two years old with a gradual climb. Anything Over 95lbs he was getting heavy. I think his head weighed the most.

Lili Marlene - most likely ASL lines, 26". She was a difficult keeper, and never weighed more than about 70 - 72 lbs. I don't know when she was spayed.
Tasha - BYB - but not ASL lines - 24", 75 lbs. Spayed at 1 year.
Ranger - BYB, resembled old ASL lines before they got so angulated - 25.5", 80 lbs. Neutered at 3 yrs.
Star of Hope - WGSL x ASL - 25", 70 lbs. Spayed at 2
Eska - working lines - 23", intact, 60 lbs.

The first three dogs on the list were all rescues.
