VERY cute dog! Don't be so disappointed. I LOVE shelter/rescue mixes. I have two dogs that are mixes and people argue nonstop about what they really are. I don't care!
A GSD will cost about $150-$350 from a rescue or $800-$3000 from a breeder so for $100 it looks like you got a really cute, fun dog and you saved a dog from the shelter.
I would not tape this dog's ears. Taping is no guarantee, even for a purebred GSD. It makes a big mess and most dogs I know who had ears taped or glued ended up with stinky ears or nasty ear infections. It doesn't matter how big or thick the ears are, if they are down at the bases they probably won't ever go up. Many breed have soft, thin ears even smaller than GSDs but they do not stand.

She looks like a bermese mountain dog or a swiss mountain dog a little. Which are both kool breeds.
Enjoy her. Take her to classes and learn lots from her. She will probably make you a better GSD owner when you are ready to add another. The dogs don't care if they are GSDs or if their ears stand up or if they are black or sable or purple with orange spots.

she is really cute I am in agreement I don't think her ears will stand, and I kinda don't see any gsd in her, BUT, she looks like a happy puppy and it's good you saved her.
She will probably teach you more than any dog you'll ever have and supply you with endless love and devotion.
It's not her fault, she is what she is.
It's rather iffy getting dogs off the net, alot of these places, shelters are just "guessing" at the breed and have no knowledge of what they truly are.
Love her for what she is cause she deserves it

|GermanShepherd88||I love my dog. However before I got her, I should of been more careful about where I got her and made sure she was full breed. I will next time though. Its not easy not knowing exactly what kind of dog you have. Especially since ive been on these forums, I thought she was shepherd/lab mix but most on here dont think so lol.|

|GermanShepherd88||No! I wanted a german shepherd. No other breed. The next time I will get a full breed and not a mix.|

Is all you care about pointy ears? It seems an awful lot like you're way too hung up on the fact that his ears will probably never stand rather than the fact that you have an adorable puppy.
That you're automatically considering another dog just because he has floppy ears is kind of sad.

I thought you were upset that your up is not a gsd, not that his ears are not up
