Is she purebred?

I'm fostering Goldie and we think she may be a purebred German Shepherd. She's about 75 lbs and needs to gain a bit. In person I've gotten mixed reviews. One woman, who was involved with german shepherds for decades, told me that she does think she's purebred. My agility instructor (also in conformation) and the groomer at my work say she isn't, that her face is wrong. Imo, she's so close that it doesn't matter either way, but I'd like your opinion!

I'm not an expert by any means, but she does seem a little "off" (don't know how else to describe it). She's beautiful, tho!

Man, what a pretty dog. Amazing someone would let her go.

She looks like a Shepherd to me. Even her face seems to look like a typical black GSD face to me, except...I've never seen a long-haired black.

Is there such a thing? If yes, I'd say she's it. If not, I wonder what else is in there to cause that beautiful coat.

Her eyes look a little light too, but maybe that's just a combination of the photo, and all the black around them.

Beautiful pup.

I think it's the eyes that make her seem off. I have seen here in Egypt a black long coat, his owner claims to be purebred.

To me she looks like a high mix, but there is something "Lab" in her face...

This is a hard one. In some of the full pictures she looks full GSD, but the closer up I kind of thought she look a little Border Collie in the face.
She's a beauty either way

There is something about her face and coat that hints at retriever to me.

I agree...looks a little like a flat coated retriever, so maybe that mixed with GSD?
