There's a chart at this link:

http://mygermanshepherdpuppy.com/

81 lbs. for a 26-inch dog says to me that the dog is overweight.  I have a rescue GSD that is taller than that by a good 2 inches and 81 lbs. on him means he needs to go on a diet.  ESPECIALLY for a puppy you need to keep them on the lean side for the best development of joints and hips.

Check out this link: http://www.4germanshep.com/understanding_german_pedigrees.htm

Scroll down to the information on Hip Dysplasia for another chart.

Is the Tiger is also oversize - NO the Tiger is simply big!!!!!!

I don't think he is overweight simply because he has a large bones and paws and wide chest, I will show you to you!
He should reach about 30" inch+ tall by the 1 year of age - since at 6 months he is 26" inch tall right now.

You guys probably never seen 30" inch+ or taller adult german shepherds!!!!!

By the way - do you have that 28" inch tall german shepherd, I would like to see how wide is the chest and width of the bones. Maybe you have skinny thin tall looking shepherd.

Hip Dysplasia - I' am aware of that..... I was feeding him 1 time a day when he turned 5 months, When he was 4 months I fed him 2 times and 3 times a day, When he was 3 months mostly 3 times a day, when he was under 3 months I fed him 3 or sometimes 4 time a day.

Also:
At 5 weeks and 5 days he was 9.5 pounds
At 8 weeks he was 18.6 pounds
At 10 weeks and 5 days he was 31 pounds.
At 4 Months he was 58 pounds
At 4 months and 3 weeks he was 66 ponuds
At 5 Months and 2 weeks he was 76 pounds
At ~6 months short by 2 days - 81.6 pounds

Why bother to ask the Guys when you dispute what you are told, And you tell us in three weeks he put on 8lb and you say he is not overweight, Pull the other leg the first one has Bells on
Okay for you to show him around to say how big he is you will not be the one to possibly suffer later on in its life
 Never heard such a lot of rubbish in all my life

Should I also argue with you that The Sebirian Tiger is also overwieght!

You probably have a hard time understanding when a dog has small body structure and large body stucture.

Should Saint Bernard dog have same weight as German Shepherd, the answer is simply NO, he has physically bigger body structure that allows him to cary mass of weight.

If a modern human being is a 6-Foot tall - and suddenly you seing a 7-Foot tall human - are you going to say he is overweight, NO - he needs extra weight for his body size.

You guys probably seing Standard size German Shepherd that put on extra weight, but you haven't probably seeing simply larger German shepherd in body sturcture size. "Above GSD standard"

I' am going to make last comment, no point to continue....

Here is another picture of him.

The reason I need him, is because he is going to be a guard-dog, a medium size dog is not big enough to take on very large human, but very large dog could and will if needed.

He is a huge, cute a little overweight pup, The picture shows it. Whatever you want to believe, see, look at, write about.. that is truly your business.
K-9 officer crank stands at maybe 65 pounds of pure dutch shepherd happines.. that dog will take you down befor you fart. That dog means business and I have seen helper take off the bute suit becausehe wore them down...
Guard dog doesnt have to be big.. it has to be mentaly and fizicaly strong to perform. As I stated before.. I need a dog to do guard, protection work that will not die of heart attack before he/she even makes it to the "bad guy".
So be it.. Tiger is different species.. that is comparing St. Bernard to wild cat.. RU kidding?

And you tell me after keeping Dogs for 60 plus years, He is over weight and if i want to be crass and that is you in the photo then you too could do with losing a few lbs looking at your girth, but then you do not seem to recognize over weight and its meaning anyway,
A St Bernard is a bigger dog, but you can have proper weight Bernard's and over weight of the same breed use your common sense there is no comparison of any breed If a dog is the correct weight then it is fine any breed can be right or over weight depends on how much food you give it and how lesser exercise you give the Dog, But you are one who asks then tells so no point in carrying on with this post as i hate time wasters

You guys still blind, you need to look outside the box. Their is standard German Shepherd and their is so called Giant German Shepherd - I don't use this phrase word "Giant" but large or above GSD German Shepherd specifications.

I have standard German Sherpherd - he is ~7 years old, now look at the comparison with 6 months Giant German Shepherd, he is particulary same size, so how in your eyes he is overweight, because alot of people who sees him they mix up with an adult Shepherd, at 6 months he reaches standard size GSD German Shepherd specifications.

Take a look, both puppy and the adult are running together in this picture below. "You need to realize and stop comparing with standard size shepherds and jumping to quickly to the conclusion"


Also 65 pounds dutch Shepherd could bite, but not powerfull enough to defeat 200LB's+ human.

Also when my puppy grows up and when he will go through proper training, he will crush 65 pound dog. He is very quick now and have enough muscle built already.

Now take a look at this picture - he is 5 weeks and 5 days and already 9.5 pounds, are you going to tell me he was born overweight, if so - I never heard such bull-crap in my life.

This is my last post to this nonsence. I have a German Shepherd... your dog is a big dog that looks like German shepherd.
I am Happy for you I wish you all that you want in this puppy. I hope that this dog is going to have the temperament to do what your expectations are. I could never use this dog.
If I wand a guard dog. I will find myself  a breed that would do the job. There is Fila Brasiliero, Cane Corso, Beorbell, Bandog.. Asian Sheep dogs.. There is tons of dogs that do not need to be oversized and bred for somebodys EGO.. they will do the job and are already big ( or I can get a pack of mean puudles) just a joke.
We had border collies to herd the sheep, couple of heelers to help with the cows and a bull. German shepherd that did a bit of everything. And st bernard that patrolled with Kuvac around the property at night.. I pick a dog I do not try to srink my St Bernard nor breed it to be 240 pound dog. I do not try to get bigger border collie cause she does not need to be. I do not like to shring or make giants out of breeds that already have their use just fine.I do not need to do that. If you are happy with your dog.. be happy.. Do not try to convince me about your giant dog's perfect something. He is HUGE and he has some junk in the trunk.. whetrer you like it or not. Even your "standart GSD is a bit overweight". Are you going to try explain to me that your 7 years old is jut HUGE boned? This is comical.
Good luck

This is my final post on this thread, but just to try and get you to understand the meaning of over weight in a Dog
Take a look at your standard German shepherd dog in the Pic, then look at the size of the Dogs head in relation to its body, that alone will tell you it is over weight the dog is out of proportion, and that is due to being overweight
But you will not listen to anyone, and why do you want size in a guard dog, anyway we are all wasting our time with this thread, good luck in what you are trying to find

I have no choice but to respond.

7 years old dog is not huge, please don't make up stories, I just used him as an example for comparison with puppy, since he meets GSD specifications standards.

You are also thick headed,
If you take a 12 years old boy that is big and tall as 16 years old boy, he is not overweight but simply just very large boy for his age.

If a boy is 150 pounds at 5 feet tall - that is overweight, but if a boy is 6 feet tall at 150 pounds that is not going to be overweight, but simply very large boy for his age.

He looks normal to me 79 pounds he is.

He went through dog fights many, many times in his life, especially with Saint Bernard at 250LB's, he grabed him by the neck and started chocking him and Saint Bernard fell on the ground, and my brother used a stick to put in his mouth to free up Saint Bernard, my puppy will be new replacement in the future as a Guard Dog.

Steve,




Now take a look when my 7 years old dog used to be 4 years old.

Here is the picture with a female, and he was about 3 or 4 years old when he took down Saint Bernard....

Steve, how are you going to explain when my puppy was born, he was the biggest pup I ever seeing German Shepherd produce in the history. If you will not respond then it it means I put you to the corner. :)

This size pup price range $1500 - $2,500 US dollars.


Also, take a look on this webside: don't tell me it's not true

http://www.pcgermanshepherds.com/our-story/

This is what it says about my pup that I have:

Other than the lines stated above, there happens to be another line called the old-style German Shepherd. Our goal, as breeders of this line, is to simply bring back the German Shepherd dog to the way it was before. We aim to produce a line of GSD that looks and acts the same as its first ancestors. The old-style German Shepherd differs from the regular German Shepherd simply by its sheer size. The newer GSD is around 24-26 inches tall. The old style German Shepherd dwarfs them by four or more inches. An old-style German shepherd is about 30-33 inches in height and weighs around 110- 140lbs. The features on the face are the same with regular German Shepherds, but the old-style dogs have larger heads, straight backs, big bones and no extreme angulations on the legs, giving it a noble and more poised look.
