Default Could my GSD be mixed?

We adopted Remington at 6 weeks old from The Humane Society of North Texas. She was from a "seized home" so I'm not sure if it was a puppy mill/backyard breeding or whatnot. The shelter said she is mixed with an Alaskan Malamute and that the mom weighed about 120 pounds. They also were not if the mom or dad was the GSD. I have spoken with a LOT of trainers/pet companies who say she looks like a full bred GSD and cannot see the Malamute in her.

Here's some pictures of her growing up..

i also see nothing but gsd. in fact he looks like the gsd i adopted when i first left the navy. if his personality matches the pictures i wouldn't give it another thought as you have one happy fur pal that will keep you happy for years to come.

Thanks, all.

@huntergreen- she definitely has the personality to match! about 10x the personality outside of these pictures.

@chicagocanine- she turned 9 mos today and weighs 55 lbs. I only ask because she has really soft hair and when you brush it up from about mid back-neck, its a LOT of white fur underneath, as well as her tail, completely black on top, but underneath is white and FLUFFY!

She looks pretty purebred to me. She might be mixed, but not with malamute!

Most shelters seem to come up with the most ridiculous mixes for dogs. It's like they hit 'randomize' on their computer for the dog's breed or something.

Granted, she looked more like a fox when we first got her lol.
