So we took in a 4 to 5 month German Shepherd from a client at Kim's work. We're adding her to the raw-fed pack, just wondering how much a high-energy large breed puppy like her would be fed? She's a good weight now, not skinny and not fat. If I had to guess, I'd say 35 pounds.

What she weighs now is not real important. What is important is what will her ideal adult weight be? You can guess at that as exact amounts are not critical. Feed about 2% to 3% of her ideal adult weight/day divided into 2 or 3 feedings. That is only a starting point. Keep an eye on her build. That will guide you how to adjust from there. If she gets fat, feed less and vice versa.
