Abstract: In this study, a total of 35 humerus bones of German shepherd puppies of ages between 40-105 days were used. The humerus index was 23.90 ± 1.055 for female and 23.18 ± 0.938 for male dogs. When a t-test was conducted on the humerus index between males and females, a significant difference was found of P < 0.05. When the relationship between humerus index and bone length was observed, the ratio was 29.53 ± 1.181 in females and 28.60 ± 1.551 in males.
