about 18 months old

Like many large dog breeds, a German Shepherd is not considered fully grown until they are about 18 months old. Female German Shepherds are fully grown around two years old. While males, who grow to be larger than their female counterparts, reach their full size around two and a half years old.

Although six months old is the average age of a dog's first heat, this can vary widely.

Some dogs can go into heat as young as four months, while larger breeds may be as old as two years before their first heat.

Responsible breeders never breed a dog on her first or even her second heat.

Opt for bland, easily digestible foods such as white rice, cottage cheese, yogurt, cooked macaroni or oatmeal, or high protein foods such as eggs or chicken without the skin. Stick to this diet until your dog's symptoms improve and his routine returns to normal.

Many owners like to feed a raw meat diet to their dogs, and while this can suit some dogs very well, there are some important considerations you need to be aware of.
