I'm currently not owning a Dutch shepherd, However i own a GSD X Rottweiler
I will be looking to get a quality DS soon though for FR or PSA.

Also, I will be applying to become a police officer. And hopefully a few years down the road into the K9 subdivison. Thank's for visiting my profile.

Just would like some Height/Weight measurements on them! Please include what line's they are from.. If you can
KNVP preferably but if you own a FCI line feel free to post!


I would also like to know if one of your bestfriends has passed.. What age it rested eternally.

Thanks.

Tell us about yourself: Hi there.
I WILL be a new Dutch Shepherd owner on July 20th!!! Puppies are on the ground and a huge litter at 14! Very excited. I chose the Dutch because I like high drive dogs and my husband likes shepherds. We both have had GSDs in our past. I also am interested in search and rescue training. I live in the mountains of California and have two older Australian Shepherds. I do know that I have a job managing this pack. My husband is on board with it all. No kids. Both of us have flexible jobs. We are active folk but aging! ;-))
Still we mountain bike, hike, cross-country ski and my husband runs. I walk in the woods with the dogs 3 times a day and we are lucky to have US Forest right out the door. So that is it.

My guy is 63 lbs at 8 months old. I wish he would not grow another inch or ounce... I love this size. But alas...
He is out of FCI lines back to Le Dobry dogs out of the Netherlands.

Our youngest female Tomo is 42lbs, at about 10months now, hoping she will fill out a bit more. She has yet to have her first heat so I think after that there may be more size gained. Our other female Suka probably is her full size, exact age unknown, she was an import that our breeder took back from a family over their head. She weighs in at 50lbs, and will gain another 5lbs or so I predict with muscle but her frame is likely filled out. She just finished her second heat, the first not with us..oh she is 13months or so now approximately. Tomo is FCI lines, Suka unknown.

Male, 2 1/2 years, 78 pounds.

Female, 2 1/2 years, 55 pounds.


The male is big but he's solid, very laid back, good all around with people, non typical Dutchie.

The female is on the small side but extremely hyper, almost to much energy, typical KNPV Dutchie.

At a good working body condition - I would say 55-60 pounds. I think that is a perfect size for a female!

I want to keep her at that size but both her parents were big so I am not sure. I run her a lot and we do a lot of walking and ball drive to try and keep her lean

Logan is 63 lbs. at 11 months old. I think he's done growing height & length wise but may still fill out a bit more as his adult muscle mass comes in.

I have almost 10 month old male. He's 82 pounds as of a week ago. He's not a pure bread, so we think he is part DS/part Clydesdale.
