Hello all. I just adopted a beautiful German shepherd "mix" from the humane society a few weeks ago. She was very timid and malnourished when I had rescued her, but she is now much healthier and comfortable with me and her new home.
The shelter believed that she was approximately 1 year old and listed her as a mixed breed on her info sheet. After a few days of a new diet and adjusting to her new surroundings, she weighed 47.5 lbs at the vet 6 days after I had brought her home. I would say she has gained about 5-7 lbs since her visit.
She is a smaller gsd compared to some of the other females I have seen at the dog park, but she still has a lot of puppy in her and I am hopeful that she will continue to grow and fill out a little bit now that she is getting the proper excercise and nutrition.
She is currently 23-24 inches tall from the floor to the top of her back, which from what I understand is average for a female.
Some characteristics that she has that would suggest she is a mixed breed to me would be the light colored face, dark hind legs, white chest, and a little bit of a skinny face. What do you guys think?
