Default Purebred or Mix?

I recently got a 7mo female GSD (or so I am told). Her shot record says "blonde German Shepherd" so I'm not exactly sure. She's beautiful, and looks mostly GSD, but I have never seen one with a peach kind of color on the ears and down the back and on the tail. I'm still learning about colors, pedigrees, etc. She doesn't have papers. She came from a family that didn't have time for her anymore. What do you guys think?

I see a young white GSD who is growing her adult coat.

So do you think her coat will turn whiter? Or do you think the peach color will stay? I personally adore the peach color.

Oh ok awesome. I also wonder, her shot record says 7 months and she was weighed at 70lbs. This is far above normal, correct? Is it possible the vet could have her age wrong? She still acts VERY much like a puppy. Teething and she squeaks when she barks sometimes.

Weight is not necessarily unusual. 20 years ago I had a female white GSD that weighed 95-100 lbs in her prime. So numbers could be entirely correct.

She looks pure white GSD to me. She's a white GSD. Her coloring is just not as white that's all. Not unusual at all. As for her weight, that's not unusual either. Just means she could easily be a larger female when she's done growing and filling out. She's pretty! Good luck with her and keep us updated!

Oh god I hope not too much bigger. It's already hard having two 70lbs+ GSDs jumping on me! Lol

Thank you (: My boy and I love her to death. And I'm glad I got her out of that outside kennel and into a nice warm house!
