Thanks everybody for the quick reply. I never questioned him being GSD until my uncle pointed out that he "looks nothing like a GSD and everything like a rottweiler." This is what caused me to wonder if I had been lied to. Sounds like maybe my relative just wasn't sure what he was talking about! I feel a lot better! Thank you everyone!
your uncle just doesn't know the coat variations of gsds.
