We are shopping for a German Shepherd puppy. Is it true that the size of a puppy's feet is an indicator of the grown size?

From my experience the size of the parents is the best indicator to go by. Also, as the dog develops the grow plates on his forearms will smooth out. Once they are completely flat, your dog is full grown. Again, this is my understanding from owning shepherds and other breeds.
