Default What type of GSD do I have?

Hi there. I was wondering if someone could help me figure out what type of German Shepherd I have.
A little background on my dog, Hercules. My friend bought his mother, Hanna, from a man that wanted to breed her. However, he also had a female Boxer and the two began fighting so he decided to sell Hanna. She was around 9 months old when my friend bought her and after a month realized she was pregnant. She was so young! She really didn't have any information to give me about the Hanna. We don't know if the man my friend bought her from tried to breed her before he decided to sell her or if he had any male dogs that could have impregnated her. So we really have no idea who the father is.

When we brought Hercules into the pet store as a puppy, a woman went nuts over him and wanted to know where we got him from and who his parents are, etc. Of course we didn't have the answers for her, but it made us want to figure out what kind of GSD we have. Here are some pictures of Hercules. If anyone could help shed some light on on this, it would be greatly appreciated.

OMG he looks exactly like my Bella at the pic he's 2 yes old almost identical, wish I could show you a pic but can't figure out how to load a pic on here from my phone lol however if you go to the photo gallery on this forum and type my angel her photo album will appear. I have her pedigree and I'm sure she's from a German line but this is all new to me and I quite don't understand it all lol so I'm sorry I'm not much help I need to find someone that can translate for me

Thanks everyone! He is such a handsome boy. We want to get a female so that they can eventually have puppies, so we would like to make sure we get a female in the same line as Hercules. We just don't know how to tell what Hercules is.

Umm, if you don't even know what lines your dog is from, why do you want to have puppies?

Well, that is why I'm asking for help on figuring out what line he is from.

From what I understand from your first post, he doesn't even have papers. Why would you want to breed him?

You might want to take a look at the chart in the first post of this thread. "Should I breed my dog?" Flowchart If your dog doesn't meet the recommentations, he really shouldn't be bred.

It doesn't matter what "lines" he's from, he's not registered and unless you can find his parents/grandparents/greatgrandparents pedigrees, he should not be bred.
He's a very nice pet, but not breeding quality, keep him as a pet and neuter him, that is the healthiest thing to do for him at this point
