Well we had a few people out looking at our pups. Well they were looking for a black and tan male. I told them on the phone I did not have one avail. That I had female black and tans only. Well they came out and did not know what to say. Miss Fritz is a Red Sable. She is 22 inches at the shoulder, fair size for a female. Her weight is 70 lbs which is just right for her. Then I get how come the mom is so small? I said she is just right for her breeding as she is a working line dog. Oh whats that? I guess they expected a very large German Shepherd. So tell me what you expect the size of a female GSD should be? Especially 3 months after she has had her litter?
