Default Purebred or mixed?

I know nothing about his background so obviously there's no way to know for sure, but I'm just curious to hear your opinion. Most people who comment on him assume he's a purebred GSD, but he just doesn't look it to me. I'm guessing he's mixed. What do you think?

The dog behind the tree is mixed; the big guy looks to be not

Hmm...maybe it's just me then lol. He's 25" at the withers and about 62 lbs... isn't that a little small for a GSD?

Consider this another vote for purebred...

Good looking GSD.

Cool dog! And I am not sure if that's the suitable weight or not but he looks skinny in those pics

I've always thought he looked thin (especially when viewed from above) but the vet says he's fine, so I dunno.

GSD are not 120 pound dogs or at-least should not be. My grown WGSL is 70 lb
