Rescued puppy a GSD mix?

Hello! I have to admit that I do not know very much about German Shepards... yet... but I'm making an effort to learn! My husband is a police officer and got a call for a stray puppy left out in the freezing temperatures last week. Well, long story short, he fell in love with her and now she is the newest member of our family. We named her Rudy and she's thriving! She is undoubtedly a GSD, but we don't have any information on her and are curious if she is a mix and with what breed? We love her regardless, but it would be great to get some insight. Thanks and Merry Christmas! (PS I have no idea why it keeps uploading my pics upside down sorry)

Better pics of rescued puppy

Thank you to all who replied. I used my good camera today to takes some clearer pictures of Rudy. She definitely looks similar to the puppy pics several of you posted... a pure GSD looks to be likely!

It's hard to tell with a young pup what they will look like when they get older. Right now it looks like a GSD pup, but no one can say with 100 percent surety that it's purebred since you have no idea of its parentage.

I agree she is too young to tell. Can never really know for sure, since you don't know what Mom and Dad were. She is precious, though. Thank you for rescuing her.
