Default Gsd?

Okay so I was very hesitent to ask this but I got my puppy from a breeder who I have now learned was not the most trustworthy person. My vet thought he looked to "fuzzy" to be a purebred and my boyfriend was concerned about his ears. What do you think?

I am going to get a DNA test done, yes this means I was a poophead who bought an advertised GSD who was paperless. Do try and be considerate as even if he is mixed with mutt he is still my baby and is not going anywhere!

Mixed with mutt is an interesting term? And yeah he does look a little fuzzy and ears seem a little small?
He's a good looking guy did you see either of the parents?

Mutt simply means mixed breed when you have no idea, When you know what he is you can use mutt or identify him as a GSD/whatever. That's what the "Breeder" should have done.

In any case he's a handsome boy and nobody's going to poke fun at you!

And I'm certainly not the last word Mastiffs Boxers Pitts are my background GSD's,at 7 years now are new to me.

I think he is absolutely beautiful

Face looks like a baby GSD, ears do look a little small.

Let us know the results of DNA - how exciting

What a cute guy. In my very un experienced opinion I agree with Chip.ears are very small. However ive seen one or two GSDs on this forum start out with smaller sized ears. as far as coloring here's a picture of mine going through his light stage

We have had purebreds on the forum with ears that small to start. See what he looks like when grown up. He's cute.

The only thing I would say about the DNA test is that it will be meaningful if you verify the parents on the pedigree are the correct parents and they are registered but if it is a "tell the breed test" those are pretty worthless. Personally, I would take the money I would spend on that and buy training classes.

Looks like a GSD puppy to me. Not all of them have huge ears as a little pup.

He looks just like my (definitely purebred) sable GSD looked around 7-8 weeks of age, yours is a little lighter.

My first impression when I saw the pic was "Sable pure-bred".

Some pups have tiny ears, and the ears grow - some pups have huge ears, and the puppy has to catch up to the size of the ears.

Some pups are fuzzy like that too - with GSDs, there is such a variation in coat type and color and ear size and set, hard to tell for sure if a puppy is pure bred or not. I say yes, but without papers, who knows?

Did you get to see the parents?

I think he looks purebred. Ears do seem a little small, but like others have said, some just have smaller ears.
