Ryder, my 13 week old black and tan german shepherd, weighed in at 21.5 pounds yesterday at the vet. The vet said that she was in perfect health and will most likely get to be 75 pounds at her mature weight. To me 21.5 seems a little low for this age, what do you all think? Thanks.
Some dogs grow more slowly than others. My male pup is 12 weeks and 21lb, but his dam is 75lb and all his male relatives are in the 80-90lb range. I'd rather have them grow nice and slow than too fast.
Sounds perfect. I have had them anywhere from only 17-18lbs at that age to 30lbs...45lbs at 18 weeks, and they all ended up just fine;-). Keep her thin and don't worry about numbers as long as she's healthy.
My male weighed 13 pounds at 4 months. I was terrified that I had a mini-shepherd. He was in perfect proportion, not the big bones, big feet, knobby knees I am use to. He is a year old now and just weighed him yesterday. He now weighs 78 pounds and is healthy as a horse. I now hope he doesn't gain any more weight!
Our male puppy turned 3months old on 3/9/11. We weighed him on that date and he was 34.6 lbs....Not fat, just big bones and stocky....Thats alittle more than what I like, but not much we can do about that...
