The ears do look rather small for a German Shepherd.

What does mommy and daddy look like? Do either one have the same little ears?

The pup is only 9 weeks. Are there other pups in the litter? Did you see them?

If you WANTED a GSD, then it's not too late to return the dog, and go get a GSD. Owning a dog is a 10-15 year commitment. You have to be happy too. I'd hate to see you have any resentment towards the dog.

OTOH, the dog is cute, and if you're happy with the pup, I would keep her, and accept the fact that she may not be purebred.

you didn't pay a lot for her whether she's pure bred or not.
why didn't you do a little research before purchasing her?
with training and socializing she's going to be a good dog.

I was convinced Rocky wasn't a purebred until he was like 8 months old...I got him for 200 from a BYB and I was convinced they lied about the parents I saw

Awww! $200 isn't a bad price, pure bred or not. She's a doll baby.

Our breeder's pups go for $2000.

Many people told me my puppy wasn't pure bred when I got her. I saw both parents but my pup was 8 pounds at 3 months old! Tiny lol thing with bat ears and looked like a fox. She sure has come around. She's beautiful and absolutely pure bred. You'll never know unless you get proof from your breeder or until she grows up some. Here's pics of my girl.

Capone, your pup sure is turning into a beauty! She really did look odd (but cute) as a pup.

Puppy:

Rocky looks purebred even as a puppy, why anyone would think he was mixed would be beyond me.

OP's puppy definitely looks mixed to me though.
