New owner from houston! howdy!

Hello gsd members! I'm a new pet owner and have been lurking reading and getting tips from this forum. Gotta say can be overwhelming with the wealth of info here.
Wanted to introduce myself and my girl "Lucky". I found her running aronud a busy road and almost saw her get hit when she crossed the road to come over to where i was standing. I found her without tags and a broken collar. She was all iced up from the recent freeze we had. Unable to find her owners for some time now ( no chip either) I decided she is far to precious to turn in to a shelter. Her vet exam showed she was in good health.
So i got her all her shots and soon to be spayed! i was told she either just under 1 year or just over 1 year. she is not aggressive however seemed to come from a sheltered home ( chained most of the time). She gets so excited on her walk, dog parks and trails that i have to cut them short sometimes lol.
I am sure she is not a pure breed since there's no tags or chip, I was told there is GSD in her. I was hoping you guys could tell what she might be lol .. i am also not too sure on how much to feed her. :help:.

Anyway here's some pics and thanks!! :):)

Hi welcome! So years ago I has a friend, that had a dog, that was GSD/husky. I swear she looks just like him. But much more petite . It's hard to tell if that's a light blaze she has on her nose . But I'm thinking. Border collie/husky /gsd ( only because the big ears). But it's hard to really pinpoint, there could be two, three , four, etc different breeds all mixed up. Either way, doesn't matter she's very cute and I love her tail!!!

I agree- looks like a GSD/Husky. I feed Taste of the Wild because that's what my dog likes and he does well on it. There's a ton of information on this site about all types of food. Glad you found her!

I love that so many people are giving homes to these lost GSD! I just love her tail too. She looks very happy!
Our female GSD, about 15 months old, is about 70 pounds now and I feed her twice a day - each time she receives one heaping cup of kibble and 1/2 can of cuts in gravy. The amount you feed can vary on several things, including the brand of food and your dog's activity level. The kibble should have guidelines based on age and weight, start there and see how she does!

Hey, H-Town.
She is such a beauty, and LUCKY indeed.
Keep us posted on how she settles in.
