Default Is this a german shepherd?

Hi guys.
This was sold to me today as a german shepherd. Is it? What confuses me is some of the pups were almost all black with a white diamond shaped patch on the chest and some almost all brown from the same litter. What does this mean?

The nose and paws look a bit small to me but could just be the age. How old did they say?

Looks like it to me, but you got me on the other pups tho.. How old is the pup ?

Also some more pics might help although it's hard to tell when they are Young

Too youg to tell, but that is a question that should have been asked before money changed hands if a GSD is what you were looking for.

I guess asking if the puppy has papers is pointless.

It looks like a GSD puppy. The litter may have black and tans, and sables in it that is why some of the pups look almost all black and others do not.

The litter could also have two sires.

Thanks for all your comments. Couple more pics below. The puppy is nearly 6 weeks old.

Looks purebred GSD. Cute but so young. Should have been with the liter for at least another three weeks. Make sure he'll get plenty of contact with healthy, social adult dogs that will teach him the dog language and impulse control and bite inhibition.
Since you don't know much info on him I would say to get pet insurance until he is a year old at least. Once they have developed some health issues it is harder to get it.
Enjoy your puppy!

Thank you very much for all your advice. Very grateful. Hes currently only being fed pedigree weaning packs. Nothing else. Any feeding advice will be greatly appreciated.

From the most recent photos I would say he is not purebred. Something about the face/head/ear set says "Northern/Spitz" breed. So I would say a high mix GSDxSomething.

Still a nice pup tho!
