German Shepherd Puppy, Pebbles
by Michael Caffin
We're still waiting for the vet's response but to us and what we hear from other people is that she is relatively small for her age.
At 10 weeks she weighs 11LBS - knowing that she had a bit weight loss due to diarrhea. Both of her parents are normal size GSD, but perhaps a gen in her family may caused her to be the size she is at the moment.
She is very active, happy, and eats like ... (well, you know). My question is, may her growth rapidly increase at one point - similar to some teens we see?

It's not unusual for the smaller puppies in a litter to easily catch up with their litter mates once they get in their new homes. Plus, the whole issue of diarhhea can make a difference too especially in a young dog.
So don't worry. Chances are high that she'll catch up. Keep her on the best food that you can, make sure her vaccinations are up to date and have lots of fun with her.
Good luck with your new German Shepherd puppy Pebbles.
