Default I need help determaining my dog's breed

Hi,

I recently adopted a female dog from a shelter,
She looks like a black gsd, but i'm not sure.

What do you think? gsd or some kind of mix?

She is 11 months old and weighs 46 pounds.

Thanks,

I'm horrible at guessing which breeds might be involved but I'll take a stab and agree with you...sure looks like some if not all GSD .,,,and most certainly a keeper!

She really looks like a GSD, she's beautiful, if anything is added to her maybe it's Border Collie?

Beautiful dog! I'm thinking GSD/Border Collie mix too!

I don't see any bc in her. I just see a smaller GSD who will continue growing for another year. Congratulations! She looks lovely.

Hard to say. I know a lot of BC people that resent dogs being labeled BC b/c they are black and white and have the white toes and/or stripe on the face (like how us GSD folks resent *any* dog with standing ears and/or a black muzzle being labeled GSD).
