Hello everyone!
I have a 12 week old female GSD puppy and she is 14” at the Withers and only 20 lbs. I know I’m not supposed to look at averages but she seems abnormally tall if you look at the charts! just wondering if anyone can compare my puppy to yours! I’m just curious if she is big or normal. Thank you!

Every dog is different, and there are differences in bloodlines. What is normal for one bloodline, may not be for another. You have to look at your own dog and decide if the height and weight are normal for that dog. Puppies grow at different rates, front end will grow, then back end will grow. Growth will slow, then growth will increase. Best to check for worms with your vet, feed a quality diet, do not spay/neuter until dog has finished growing. The reproductive hormones regulate growth.

What charts are you looking at? I am not sure about height but 14" doesn't seem excessive although 20# is definitely on the light side at that age. Do you have any pictures?
