Is my female German Shepherd pure breed? please help.
hi i got my female shepherd (Dakota) about 8 months ago.and was wondering if she is purebred or not.i never got to see the parents as she was a present to me from my boyfriend. but was hoping i can get some opinions on wether she is or not. and was wondering why she puts her ears back when she greets people pr dogs, is this normal? the pics of her are in the link and they are pretty recent pics of her except for the puppy one. thats her when she was about 3 months old.

Hi Squinks,

your picture isn't showing up. Can you try again?

Her putting her ears back when greeting people/dogs is a sign of submission. Completely normal and appropriate greeting behaviour for a young dog.

Uhhh what else would you thing she would be? Why are you questioning her breed? Because she moves her ears? Looks a heck of a lot like a GSD to me. Change in ear position is a lot of dog language. What you describe is part of "Hi, Howareya?"

Looks pb to me, dogs use their ears a lot, so her pinning her ears in greeting is normal. My pup pins his ears all the time.

My dog does the same with his ears when he greets me, I think its cute.

She looks german shepherd to me and a very beautiful one too. :D
