He looks about the size that Navarre was at 6 months.  Yes you are going to have a big boy!  He should stop gaining now and start getting longer/taller.  Do you have him on any supplements?  My vet just told me to be careful of the fast rate of growth because of hips, etc.  I'll have to find some pics of Navarre when he was younger and post them.

On the flip side, my new GSD pup is just now 5 months old and I don't even think she weighs 30lbs!  I've only had her 3 weeks and she's such a quick learner!  But she was in the shelter for about 5 weeks and I think she's probably had the runs for the last 2 months (which have finally cleared up, seriously like yesterday!!)!  Plus she's female and I think Navarre was part mutant!!!  I will just have to wait and see!

He is a GORGEOUS pup!

Thanks all.

No, I don't have him on any supplements. I've kept him lean, as best as I could. Most everyone that sees him says he looks too thin. I find when he's starting to look chunky, it means he's about to shoot upwards.

How large did Navarre get?

He was a steady 98lbs for a few years then after he was put on epi meds he went to 130lbs for the last three years.  I don't know how much of that was the meds or just his genetics!

I wish there was somwhere where we could find a chart for all breeds. I've been looking for awhile now for Pyrs and have come up empy handed. I was and still and a little worried about Trippers weight. He looks great but I find he's a little small. His present weight is 32lbs and he's 15 weeks old. My other pyrs if memnory suits me right were bigger than that at his age. Anyone out there have and ideas on what his weight should be?

I've looked for the same and haven't been sucessful either. I think the difference in Pyrs is a big one, some turn out HUGE, some just big, and some smaller. If he's not boney or anything I wouldn't worry about him. He may end up being a smaller male or just hasn't hit a big growth spurt yet. If I remember correctly my male was about 45lbs at that age, and my female about 40lbs. They stayed within a consistent 5 lb difference up until about 5 months old, now he stays 10 lbs ahead of her. Who knows, but it will be interesting to see how they turn out. He has a much, much larger structure and is much taller eventhough he's only 10 lbs heavier.

He's so cute.My big boy was 10 lbs at 1month and then gained 10 lbs every month until he reached 110lbs.He is probaly alittle over weight.If yours doesn't get overweight i would say he will probly be 80-95lbs.
