    i don't know, looks like a mix to me. the body shape, coloring and ears don't lend it to being a pure gsd pup.

    the pup in the childhood pic doesn't look like the same dog at all. I know they get lighter as they get older but the other pics look like a very young dog as well.

    I agree DanL...with both comments.

    I dont' know, the fur, body shape, and head and ears and just... really all of him don't scream GSD to me...

    I'd say mix. Doesn't look pure to me.

    there is nothing on that dog that I haven't seen on more than a few gsd's. Not well bred ones, but pure none the less.

    the dog's body looks shaved to me, to maybe try and hide the fact that it's a coated GSD, and it has floppy ears.

    Did anyone notice the white stripe down its nose? Is that common in GSDs? Something says border collie or somethin is in there, to me anyway!

    I'm with the others- I'm not sure about it being purebred, or the same dog as in the last picture. The one in the "Childhood" picture looks to be about the same age as the dog in the other pictures, give or take a couple of weeks. That one could possibly pass as a purebred GSD, tho. In the first set of pics, I see something like Malinios mixed in there. One thing I can say for sure- that's a cute pup!

    I'm not sure it's a white stripe. It looks more like thin fur or a scar. Could be wrong, tho.

    I say if he is pure bred he's poorly bred. And unless its been shaved, I also don't think its the same dog in the childhood pic.

    Looks like the same dog to me, but it's been shaved. If you look at the 'pup' picture, and the others, the face looks very similar, and the body does look like it's been shaved.

    There's something not GSD there... Even with the floppy ears (coming from a girl with a pure GSD with folded ears), it doesn't look pure... the body's wrong, and even the head.

    Looks like there could be some border collie, maybe, in there... Not pure, if you ask me.

    I remember you from another forum, you did the same thing there with lots of pictures of several dogs and pretty much everyone told you that they were not purebred and/or from a BYB.

    It looks like it could be purebred in the "childhood" pic but the other pics, no. Does this dog have mange?
