Default Brindle shepherd mix?

Hi, I am looking to adopt and I spotted this gal at a shelter. They list her as a dutch shepherd mix, although I know sometimes if a dog is brindle that's an easy option. I know dutch shepherds are quite rare..

From this pic, does it look like this girl is a shepherd who would (or might/could) have upright ears? Or if not, any ideas what she could be? I have only seen the pic, but judging from her arm size she looks like she could be a medium size girl..

I would guess a Dutch Shepherd or Dutch mix.... Head is not as broad as most of the other "Brindles".

Beauuuutyful girl! Since so many other breeds come in brindle, she could be a GSD crossed with Staffie, Pit Bull, Whippet, greyhound, Boxer, Mastiff, Bulldog, Cairn terrier, etc etc etc.... and just not look the part. She is adorable!!

I got her. I believe she could be pure Dutch shepherd. The gal at the shelter said she was turned in because she bit stuff. I've only had her a few hours but I can attest to that. She runs around biting and grabbing everything, nonstop.

I certainly know about Malinois and Dutch Shepherds characteristic energy, if that is indeed what she is. I just hadn't ever seen it first hand. Wow. I am going to have to amp up my daily doggie exercise routine with her.

She is absolutely adorable but doesn't look like a pb dutchie to me. It will be easier to tell as she grows.

Here's some video of her and my other dog Riku who has been following her around since she got here. If she is not purebred, hopefully she has something that will mellow her out a bit. She actually looks calm in parts of this video. She's laying by my feet now, finally...
