Most German Shepherd crossbreeds will grow to be around 55 to 65 pounds, but there is a wide range in terms of size. Some may be smaller while others can be quite large. The average height for these dogs is around 18 inches and the weight can vary anywhere from 50 to 100 pounds.
Let’s take a closer look…
Wirehaired German Shepherds have tight, fine hair that is plucked out so it doesn’t mat down. They are the most popular type of German Shepherd and come in many colors and sizes.
Long-haired German Shepherds have thicker hair that hangs down their back like tails. They’re usually darker than other types of German Shepherds and don’t have as much stamina or energy.
Schnauzers have fur that covers their whole body except for their face, neck and hindquarters (heel). Schnauzers make great guard dogs because of their protective nature and size. They also tend to be outgoing and playful.
Pointers are the most rare type of German Shepherd and probably the most famous. Pointers get their name from the trait of pointing which means they always know where someone is if they’re lost or missing. This can make them very reliable family pets but can also give them a loud personality if not properly socialized from an early age..
Zwergs (or dwarf shepherds) are miniature versions of normal sized German Shepherds who were bred to be hospitable to people with disabilities such as blindness or low mobility..
