I asked this question on the Upland Journal site but thought I might get a better response here. Sorry to those of you who visit both boards.
Being a novice to the breed I wonder if there is a GSP growth chart available or possible insight from experienced GSP'ers. My pup just turned four months and he looks small to me. Of course I remember thinking the same thing of Oak (Lord of the Labs) who turned out to be an 85lb'er. So I guess what I'm askin is at four months he is 21" to the shoulder and weighs in @ 38lbs is this avg, below avg or above avg?
Sharp Shooters APC Algonquin
VC, Enzo Vom Ludwigstein, M
Intl. Ch. VC Sharp Shooter's Let 'er Rip
VC Intl. Ch. Indian Brook Frappucino
VC, Indian Brooks Espresso, MH (Mazy)
A guess as I did see her, just a hair smaller than Frappucino
INT CH, VC Triple J’s Run Rainey Run, MH
I do remember thinking the same of Oak who finished being built just about right for the Uplands in my opinion. For a Lab anyways. Again you get tired of feeding Dollar put'em on plane to Utah I got the fare. Love the looks of that hound
I think it's his coat and ears that add 5lbs or so.
He looks to have a great coat. (must be that German influence)
Wow that's big. Glad that I have a female GSP puppy. She will be 4 months on the 11th of December and she weighs 25 pounds and at the agility trial this weekend, used a wicket to measure her. She measured in at 13 inches at the withers. I anticipate that she will be about 22 inches with a weight of about 50 pounds.
Well it sounds like he is on track with his breeding. Puppy's their like kids they make ya worry a lot.
I have allot of those dogs in my guys family tree and my guys is about 26" and runs anywhere from 60 to 65 LB, he'll go down to a very slim 60 in the middle of hunting season when we are hunting hard. As you look at the papers you are going to come to the realization that you have a super dog. Anyone who is not a VC is a MH, CH DC it's amazing. I have to look at my guys papers tonight.
Not sure I understand what you mean? Versatile meaning fur and feather?
