Hey guys, got a quick question for yall. I have a new GSP pup, Amos and he will be 10 weeks on Tuesday. This is my first GSP and I am a little concerned after seeing pictures and videos of other pups. Does he look quite small to be 10 weeks old? For reference he is 15 inches from ground to top of the shoulder, and I am not sure on his weight. Am I just being really picky? Here are some pictures of him today at the farm

IDK. He looks fine to me. What difference does it make? My Jenny weighs 42 lbs. A lot of purists say that is light (as if there is something wrong with her). I'm not a purist. I'm not a breed snob. I don't care.

BTW, she hunts like a champ. I guess I would be happier with a bigger dog who couldn't find a bird. smile

He's just right. It's not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog.

Obviously I love him dearly, just from a health perspective I wanted to make sure we were okay

I'd love to have a small size shorthaired dog. If he/she weighed 35lbs or less I would be in hog heaven. I want a small retriever and there is not one breed out there except a cocker and I wish they were short haired.

Smaller size, less feed and less waste to clean up. My gsp gyp run between 35-40lbs during the year. Your pup may have a grown spurt. But looks good for the age

He looks fine, just love him and make him love you. Don't push him and most likely he will be fine.

good looking pup. where I see size matter in the field is when we hit some of the really large fields. It's handy to have one of the large male dogs out because he can cover a lot of ground much quicker than the others. Any dog can do it, they just do it a bit quicker.

Haha reminds me of a weiner dog we had when I was a kid. Man that little dog had no fear of any other animal and was a great tracker.
