Could just be me but I'd say the dog looks like a WL Kelpie or a mix of it. Do you have a stacking picture of the dog?

Edit/Just read original post: WHAT? Not sure if mom or dad was the GSD? Do they not understand how puppies are born??? The female dog that has the puppies come out of her is the mother! I see NO Malamute in this dog. I still think the dog is a Kelpie or Kelpie mix.

Hmm...Alright I had to re-read the post a couple times to understand. (Long day lol) I'm not sure how they can say mom was a Malamute (Which I don't see at all) "or" a German Shepherd....Two different breeds, unless you mean mom was mixed and they don't know if the GSD part came from her or a male? Do they just not know who the mother is? Maybe two females kept together with two litters? *confused*

I still stand by my feelings of this dog being a Kelpie/Kelpie mix. The head and eyes are what seem Kelpie-ish to me. They don't look like a normal GSD features to me.

She is VERY expressive and incredibly cute. Whatever you got, it looks like you got a winner. So stinking cute.

My daughter is totally in love with your dog.

Thank you both!

I'm sorry, what is kelpie! *newbie*

What I meant by the mom/dad thing..- they weren't sure if the Mom or Dad was A GSD.. They didn't see either of them, they were only told that it was for sure a GSD mix, and that the mom was 120+ pounds.


I HAVE BEEN SAYING FOR SO LONG SHE LOOKS LIKE A DOBERMAN!!! Sorry for the caps, it's just you are the first person to agree with me!!!!


What do you mean by stacking picture?

@chancethegsd ... She came from a "seized" home and we know no circumstances of what that was. They had no extra information besides that, only that the mom was 120+ lbs.

There's no way you can be an annoying dog picture poster. We LOVE pictures around here!! I am a lame dog picture poster. You can pick up the slack for me. I think Remy is wonderful and clearly you two are a great pack.

@scarlettsmom ... Awesome!! I have so many pictures. I just love my sweetie so much. We have a few problems, but she's so freaking hilarious, I forget about them instantly!! I've never felt the love from a human that I feel from her.

My dad passed away when I was 1, he was in the Vietnam war, and died from a brain tumor from agent orange. I brought remy to his grave site for the first time and she immediately licked his grave and laid down on top.
I may have adopted her in April at 6 weeks (which I adopted her less than a month after I moved into an apt by myself)- but I think my dad just might have sent her to be my BFF. because, she is the most awesome dog I've ever known.

Hmm...Sounds like the pups weren't even with mom when they were taken. So really it's hard to say who the pups came from I'd guess, unless the owner told them. Even German Shepherds (Especially females) aren't nearly 120lb unless someone waaay over guessed the dogs size which is much more possible than the dog actually being 120lb if it's a GSD. And a Kelpie is a type of dog from Australia. They're a ranchers "best kept secret" but actually more popular than many people think. Lots of em in Texas, they make great herding dogs.

Here are some pictures of some young Australian Kelpies.







And some adults...





And by "stack" basically just a picture of your dog standing up and looking at it from the side. Their body shape and "stack" is also different from a German Shepherd.

Here's a picture of my boy Chance as an ADULT, next to a 10 month old purebred female German Shepherd.


He was a GSD/Kelpie mix (Face shot link in my signature) but much more Kelpie like in build and personality. He topped out at a whopping 50lb (I think his "fattest" was 53) and 21" tall. Best dog I ever owned and I miss him terribly every single day. He was my heart dog.

And I agree, we LOVE pictures! She's a total cutie, don't be shy to share!

Not purebreed GSD, but not sure of the mix. Parents were probably mixed also.
