I won't chime in on whether you should take this pup or not, that is up to you. I will say that good breeders do health and temperament checks on their dogs, which is really important BEFORE they breed, so I wouldn't personally take a BYB dog for that reason.
The thing on the elbow looks too small to be a callous, IMO and also not quite int he right spot. They are usually just below the elbow, where the dog puts weight when they are laying down, not right on the point of the elbow.
I have a dog who was prone to getting demodectic mange flare ups, she seems to get it on her hocks and elbows the most, and started off looking like that. Was it a small raised bump? It could also have been a cut that scabbed and the hair came off.

"I am sorry , It seems that I did not know what "breed " word really means , when I said that I actually meant , ill teach her things like fetch and to wait for me if I am at the shop , and not to be friendly to strangers , or eat from someone else but me , cause people here ( in this area come to steal )are very bad and im afraid they will poison her - even though nothing happened so far in the area ."
Breed = to make puppies
Train = to teach
So, you want to TRAIN her to be a good watchdog. Correct?

|Nigel||I think your pup probably is a "GSD" but most, including mine, are not worthy of breeding. It's not an insult or anything. Gsds have a long list of potential health issues, so best to let those with years of experience working them and have knowledge of genetic lines do the breeding. Enjoy, train, and learn as much as you can with this pup!|

The callouses are areas where the hair has been rubbed off and the skin is toughened up due to laying on cement or asphalt. Mine have grass to lay in, but sometimes the concrete is cooler and they want to lay on it. Mine have this as well.
Edit; where are you located?
