German Shepherd with yellow eyes?

today I found a German Shepherd running along a busy road in our town. (I have 3 German Shepherds myself) We picked him up, took him to the Vet and found a foster home for him for a few days. He is very sweet and handsome (at least he will be after a bath), he is friendly with other dogs and humans, he does not have a micro chip nor was he wearing a collar nor was he tatooed. It looks like he is just changing coat from puppy to adult.

What concerns me is that this dog has yellow eyes. I have never seen a Shepherd with such a light eye color and some people scared me a little since they said there might be wolf mixed in. The Vet did not - he said he is a normal pure bread German Shepherd.

To me he looks like a 'normal" german shepherd dog, black and a kind of a cream color. Anybody any idea??

AKA a caramel eye. I believe AKC writes it up as a fault. Can you get a photo?? I have seen it a lont time ago, but don't remember much about it.

Glad you saved him! Light eyes are not totally uncommon - and yes, they are a fault. But odds are he is purebred even with the light eyes.

Here is the picture of "Fritz" that is how we named him. It was taken before he got a bath - so please excuse him being so dirty. He will get a bath in the morning, we did not want to add more stress to his day today.
