She can't be a mix and be AKC - even lets say if she came from an AKC gsd and an AKC chihuahua. Per the AKC this is called cross breeding and those dogs cannot be registered. I suggest as soon as you get the papers you call the AKC to register your dog - this will confirm the legitimacy of them. You may also want to google the pet store you got her form and the breeder or even check www.bbb.org
to see if any one else has had any issues with that store.

Those rules are for honest people ... dishonest people can (and have) registered dogs with questionable heritage by using registration papers of legit puppies that have died or been sold without papers. Of course an owner like Jrhodebeck can have a DNA test done to see if the puppy is a GSD and if it's not, then file a complaint with AKC against the breeder of record and maybe sue the pet store to get her money back.
