Tulip Does not look wolfy at all. Could definitely have GSD, maybe some Rottie? Idk really.

Kaasuti I see a bit of Rottie in there. Maybe Rottie/husky mix?.

middleofnowhere I see shep. in both parents. Puppies are OK leaving home at 7 weeks and to me that pup looks something like 8 - 9 weeks. He will lighten up a lot as he grows - that's what is so amazing about puppies to me -- how their coloring changes.

glowingtoadfly He is adorable! I don't see content in the parents.

JakodaCD OA I recently saw a pic of a puppy advertised somewhere, can't remember where, the cross was gsd/husky and he looked alot like the one you just got.

He's very cute, but it really bugs me when people (sellers) LIE about stuff I'd be pretty peeved

shepherdmom I don't know if all puppies eye colors are this way, but my boy at 6-7 weeks
See the blue still?



when he came home at 12 weeks. No blue now

SunCzarina Parent on the right: *might* have some wolf or coyote content but more likely a malamute or husky x GSD. The markings look a bit off to be all shepherd but that could be the lighting. If it is, it's working line.

Parent on the left looks half lab. Can't really tell without seeing the whole body but that dog looks like it might be gsd x lab, I definitely see lab in that dog.

Your puppy also looks very much like a lab. Lab mixes are charming, far better suited to life in society than wolf mixes.

From his coloring, and the pics of the parents, he may have some GSD in him, but can't say how much, or what else he is mixed with.

Well he looks young for a GSD puppy but depending on what all is mixed in that could be 9 weeks. At 5 & 6 weeks my puppy still had a lot of blue left in his eyes... By 9 weeks they were fully brown like this puppy.

For a number of years I successfully shared my home with a number of wolf/GSD mixes, hi and lo content. Not as difficult as made out to be, if you are an assertive leader, but definitely not dogs. The photos posted by the op aren't enough to really tell anything as far as wolf content. The puppy is cute, but really, imo, doesn't even look like he could be from the two adult dogs, let alone have wolf blood. OP, love him for what he is, but I hope you didn't pay a lot because they told you he had wolf in him.
