I got 2 questions.

My doberman she is 1 years and 1 month and she is 55lb it is bad ? She is close to 23 inch. I don't see her ribs but i can feel it she is healthy. She is doing 2-3 hours per day of walk.

She still going to get any more weight ? or muscle is yea how much approx.

Sounds ok to me. Some females can be small. Long as shes healthy, And she still has some growing to do.

If you can't see any ribs then she sounds ok. Hard to tell without any pictures through. Has the vet said anything about her weight?

She looks in great condition from the pictures! I wouldn't worry about her weight of you can't see any ribs. I would say that in my opinion however 2-3 hours is excessive for a 1 year old and could be damaging her bones depending on what kind of excersize. If its forced excersize on a hard surface I would cut it right down to an hour or so, until the growth plates are fully developed at 18 months.

Cute girl ;)

the exercise she is doing it.
walking. it slow. 2-3 walk per days of 45-1hours each walk.
and sometime i take her to play with other dog.
I dont think that walking is excessive and could damage her bone.

My black female is 2 and weighs 66 lbs. I think your girl looks great, and I wouldnt worry about her being small, she will probably spend the next year filling out some, but overall dont wish for a huge dog, she will be fine!

She looks good!
Roman's sister got all the 'little' genes and is only about 55lbs.....Roman got the big boy genes and is a whopping 95lbs (5 is from daddy's overindulgence of Roman's treat routine - we're working on it ;) )
