LeCielEstRouge I'm not an expert, but his muzzle looks too short to be a purebred. Regardless, a good dog is a good dog. BUT, if your friend isn't sure, it means he's not registered. Therefore you have no idea where that dog came from and if he's even sound enough to responsibly breed. If you do get a pup, make sure you get it fixed since its only for companion purposes.

GSDlover143 Personally If you are looking to get a purebred dog. look somewhere else. Not saying he isn't pure.. but if you have to ask.. wouldn't that be a red flag?

GSDlover143 I am going to say yes. But either reverse mask or no mask at all. Very pretty

FirefighterGSD The picture looks like a German Shepherd mix, certainly GSD there but I don't think purebred personally.

That being said, this is obvious although not your original question.....

SunCzarina If he's an older dog, 6 or 7, the black in a reverse can go gray.

Reverse mask:

Actually this is not true. There are no state laws requiring mandatory spay/neuter. There are some local laws like Dallas Texas, and Los Angeles County, California.

But the only laws passed in most states are that dogs adopted from shelters must be spayed/neutered.

This was updated in 2013:

Folks, it is not against the law to breed your dog, whether you jump through the many hoops to make you a responsible breeder, or if you just let your mongrel get knocked up and have a litter of puppies. I think there is a much bigger problem than people breeding dogs indiscriminately, and that is the readiness some people have in bringing a puppy home, and in dropping a dog off when they become inconvenient. If people, the general public, considered dog ownership a privilege and a responsibility, than I think we wouldn't have such a problem with young dogs or elderly dogs being dumped by their owners.

erintaylor1995 And I feel the same way most of you do. All I did was ask a simple question. I'm not exactly looking for a definite pure bred dog, I would just like one for a friend for my dog. But I don't have thousands of dollars to spend on a dog.

The problem with people like your friend, is they'll breed the dog and claim it's a purebred german shepherd. Then people will buy one of those puppies assuming it is purebred, breed it with another "purebred" shepherd and call those puppies purebred. When in fact they are just a bunch of mutts.
