That's no problem :) He's got a TON of bone and substance for his age. He's going to be slightly shorter than Strauss, but there's going to be "more dog". I'm expecting him to be 90-95 lbs at a LEAN weight.

He weighs almost 60 (I need to get a weight on him) at 5 months, and he's quite lean right now, so he is definitely going to be a good size.

He is so beautiful, seems to have a sweetness about him. As he matures how is he doing with your Tourette's? I remember you posting that a big part of the reason you chose him was his reactions to you, which were fantastic.

Lies. I promise you.

Same as when we first met :) My issues don't bother him at all. I have noticed that adult dogs have a lot harder time adjusting to me, and many view me very suspiciously.

I have been researching GSD a lot(I had one peviously but he came with way to much baggage long story shot owner dumped him on me without giving much info and he became to dangerous for my family. I want another one but have to make sure I research the breed a little more)! I have some questions about sables. Are they only found in the working lines? As puppy's are they really light in color and then as they age get darker? Now just for GSD'S in general. I get all dogs need exercise and training ect.. But are Show lines less "intense" by that I mean not such a big prey drive, a little calmer ect.. While the working lines are more intense when it comes to prey drive ect.?

Nope. Found in all lines.

Depends on the individual. Mahler started out cream colored with "pepper" on his coat. His half sister Izarra was dark from the day she was born.

But are Show lines less "intense" by that I mean not such a big prey drive, a little calmer ect
Depends on the lines and the individual. I personally go for a more intense, pushy, a-hole of a dog (regardless of whether I'm getting AmLine, working line, or euro show line).
