    Is this just a long-coat GSD??...or do you think it has something else mixed in?...or that it is something else?

    (The shagginess seems too uniform, and the ears too dark, and there's something about the eyes ... but overall it seems very GSD.)

    IF it is a mix, then yeah GSD/chow

    but it may just be a really out of standard GSD. i have seen lots of pure bred dogs that dont even look like what they are.

    Looks purebred to me. Do some searches through breeders who have longcoated GSDs. Specifically not ones who specialize in it.

    Looks GSD to me, but depending on his size, could be a Shiloh.

    I would say he's just a GSD -- if something else is in there I would say malamute.

    Their are some Long coated GSD breeders that were Shiloh Shepherds back in the early 90's and when the "wolf" stuff hit the fan . They became long coated GSD.... It is a fault in the GSD standard but it does occur naturally but the ears and eyes are more Shiloh to me... I wont get into more detail NOT all Shilohs go back to a wolf hybrid , some do. And no one that I know of is bringing that back into the breed . SO its been a long time since that mix was bred. But genetics be as they are it can pop up...

    All the sides say it is a breed under development.

    Thanks so much everyone. Your ideas and info are very interesting and helpful. I've added a pic below that shows a little more leg(!) - don't know if that might help at all...

    I was just going to say that the picture was from an Australian magazine, and I'm not sure that we have Shiloh Shepherds here (do we, anyone?) ... but it could have been and overseas story, especially given the deep snow, which does occur but not as commonly as elsewhere. Darn, I threw the rest of the article out!!...didn't think!! (Can't recall what it was about ... something about the woman next to him.)

    Thanks again folks!

    Del.

    I have seen purebred GSD's that look like the above, my vote would be for GSD. And since your in Australia, I have seen pics of some australian gsd's, that don't necessarily look like GSD's in other parts of the world..He/She is very striking.

    Well their is a breeder in the Netherlands and I know that a CAO breeder used that country to QT her dog so it would not have to be kenneled QT down under so you can look her up . Im sure if a breeder was breeding Shilohs in AU the NL breeder would know.

    her web is shilohshepherd.nl I think

    I had a GSD a few years back and during the winter he did get just like that. I would vote winter coated GSD. Looks pure bred and no hint of chow to me, but thats my opinion.
