I got this beautiful boy from our local shelter last Friday. He was a stray so they didn't know anything about his background. Can anyone tell me if he looks like he's pure of if he looks mixed what other breed it may be? I've had a couple Shepherds in my lifetime but I'm not a breeder and don't know everything that may show hints to his bloodline. He's a wonderful dog and I love him to pieces regardless of his breeding. His markings, eyes, legs . . . all look pure Shepherd to me. Those silky soft ears aren't standing but he's teething and I don't know what his life was like before last Friday so who knows. His muzzle looks a little wide to me for Shepherd and his ears flop to the side and down doesn't look like any of the Shepherd ear stages I've seen but, like I said, I'm not a breeder and even though I've had a couple, I'm far from a Shepherd expert. His personality and behavior reminds me so much of the other Shepherds I've had.
Also, if you can give me an idea of what you think his age is based on the pictures I'd really appreciate it. I've gotten estimates of 3-5 months. Took him to the vet on Saturday and he weighed in at 35.5 lbs. Like I said, he's still teething. All of his teeth except the very back are very small. The one that's ready to come out now is on the lower left side.
Thanks for taking the time to give me your input and comments!!
