How old is he and what lines? American showlines typically don’t fill in until 24 months or so. Other lines also gain bulk as they mature. Has he been neutered? Some dogs are just naturally thin.

What do you mean by line? And no he’s not neutered

How old??? May have EPI. Blood test can confirm but vet visit either way.

Line is the type of German Shepherd. American showlines can be very slender, almost bony. So can pet lines which aren’t listed here. Those are dogs that are bred haphazardly outside of established lines. Sometimes they are called old fashioned or large. WGSL tend to have a stockier build. WGWL can be solid or they can be smaller but they don’t usually have that very thin look of ASLs. Not all are thin but I’ve seen some recently that are very long and narrow.

Dogfaries, that's Jimmy Moses, isn't it?
Yep. Gave her the major, which finished her. One of my top two very favorite wins! (The other is her Group 3)

He looks the same as yours I would say just a lot skinner
How old is he? She’s four years old, so a mature dog. All of my GSDs have been pretty thin when they were 2 or younger
