Default Rescue puppy

Good Morning all,
Ive recently adopted a five week old puppy who I think is a German Shepherd mix, and was hoping for lots of advice to raise him right. He was found on the side of the road by our vet tech abandoned and covered in fleas : (
When I took my other dog to the vet he was crying and carrying on in the other room so I agreed to foster him. If he had been taken to the local shelter he would have been put down. We live on Guam and there is a massive stray dog problem and only one shelter. Needless to say we fell head over heels for him and he is now a permanent member of the family and im so excited.
Currently he is estimated about six weeks old and he weighs about 6.5lbs. When I got him a week ago he had a pretty severe worm infestation so he may have been a little stunted and behind in growth. He has been dewormed and I think gained about a pound in the week we have had him.
So I was just wondering what you guys thought of him and if he looks shepherd to you and then also any tips on how to raise a well behaved Shepherd.
