|There is huge variation in the German Shepherd breed. First there are multiple lines or types of GSD, then you have people who are breeding for size or coat color/type so you also can have dogs way over standard and with different coat types, or colors that are not in the standard. So you can have dogs from 50-120+ pounds with quite a variety in appearance and all still be purebred GSDs.
So saying your dog is taller than a GSD doesn't really mean much since they can vary so much in size, way more than what you read in the breed standard. If a dog is too tall according to the standard it doesn't mean it's not a GSD.
