Somehow, this little training thing is effective in my dogs to be aggressive to other people who is not a member of the family trying to enter the house/premises. Which is the reason why I prefer large breed than toy dogs...for me...Guard dogs should be aggressive to others who is not a member of the house, but so lovable to the members.

They may get aggressive, but it doesn't sound like it is for the right reasons. The chain makes them feel they can't escape. Dogs are fight or flight. If they can't run, they will fight. But it won't be because he is protecting the family. It's because he is scared and he associates strange people with scary things. If you want to train him to protect, find an actual protection club. Outside of that, it sounds like you are just making your dog a liability.

as far as your question, yeah, looks slightly mixed.

selzer The sire could be the sire, or there could be two sires. If another dog hooked up with the dam she could have a mixed-litter: some purebred and some not. Wait and see. If the ears are not up around 4-5 months you might try gluing -- plenty of info here on that, do a search.

As for the dam's ears. They are relaxed in the photo. GSD ears are very expressive. They can stand poker straight when on alert, and can curve back in respect, or give airplane ears -- Babsy even twists hers when she is in a funny mood.

bayper i've seen the picture of the Sire...it looks pure too...but like u said...who knows

anyhow he just turned 3 months last 14th, lets look and see as he grows older i'll try to update the pix every month....

Castlemaid After seeing these latest pictures, my feeling is that this puppy is a mix. The Mom looks pure-bred, but who knows who the father was?

If the pup is not pure-bred, the ears may be floppy - you are right, his ears do not look like GSD ears, and will probably stay down, but who knows?
