Jessie the Monstrosity
by Ian Welch
Jessie @ 6 weeks
Wonder if I spelled that correctly? In any event, JESSIE is a little bit of a beast. Her mother was an 80 lb female shepherd with black coloring. Her father was a 125 lb male with normal coloring. Many of her siblings had the typical coloring, while she is black with a white spot on her chest.
We spotted another dog in the neighborhood that looked as if it could be one of her siblings. The dog appeared 12-18 lbs lighter than Jessie. A neighbor informed us that this dog was actually 2 months older than Jessie (with identical markings). At just over 7 months, we took Jessie in to be spayed. Jessie weighs in @ 69 pounds exactly.
Anyone else have a female that weighed this much at her age? I am very curious to know how big she will get.
Please, only give input if you have experienced similar weight with a GSD. I understand how to use the chart to predict her adult weight, but would rather hear about personal experiences.
