|Well, some people also aren't used to seeing shepherds that are breed standard! The AKC gives height, the SV (German breed standard) gives height and weight
Males 60-65cm (23.6 - 25.6 inches)
30 - 40 kg (66 - 88 pounds)
Females 55 - 60cm (21.6 - 23.6 inches)
22 - 32 kg (48.5 - 70.5 pounds)
Both of mine are skating the top end of the standard and I hear all the time about how tiny Rosie is. She's 23 inches and 68 pounds! People actually tell me that she must be mixed with a smaller breed.
I don't remember what they were at 7 months, but Vincent was 60 pounds at 6 months and completely filled out he's 84 right now. Rosie was 50 pounds at 6 months. They were both done growing, heightwise, at 18 months. Vincent kept filling out until he turned 4. I think Rosie's about done, she's 2 1/2.
