Thank you for that info Sandy smile I looked through other threads and was thinking he's soooo tiny! There were 7 in his litter although one poor baby died frown

5 of the 6 pups were almost identical in size but 1 girl was a monster! And had attitude to match!

Some of the GSD people tonight (1 a breeder) thought Cooper looks about 4 weeks old size wise frown

Slow growing is really not a bad thing. How big were Mom and Dad?

I've had some that were on the small side as puppies but ended up well within breed standard when they matured.

Caleb was close to 20 pounds (9 kg) at 9 weeks, but he weighs in today that almost 3 years old at about 79 pounds (~ 36 kg), which is perfect as far as I'm concerned.

Kopper was 9lb at 8 weeks old. Now he's 1 year and 75lb. I wouldn't worry much. Especially if he came from a big litter, it's natural that the puppies would be a bit smaller.

Siren weighed 12 lbs at 8 weeks. There were 10 in her litter. Of the 5 females in the litter she was in the middle size wise. There were 2 that were bigger than she was and 2 that were a little smaller.

Both parents are within the standard for size. Siren is now 3yo and is 26 inches tall and weighs 75 lbs. One of the females that was bigger than her as a baby is smaller than Siren is as an adult. (Both shorter and lighter.)

Thank you all, I do appreciate it. I know it doesn't matter what size he ends up it was just that I heard so many comments last night that he looks like a 4 week old.

Mum and Dad are within standard I believe. I haven't seen Dad, but Mum looked only a little bigger than Moo (so smallish).

Only 7 whelped but 1 didn't survive.

Thanks again, I'll stop worrying about it! smile
