First thing I thought of was GSD/MAL mix.

I agree with these two comments 100%. Along with anyone that said something similar. (:

Whatever he is, he is beautiful and looks like an absolute sweetheart. Thank you for saving him.

If he is 40 pounds and over a year old, then he probably does have malinois or dutch shepherd in him. His face looks thin, but I had him at about 65-70 pounds.

Yeah, he seems larger than 40 lb looking at his photo, but if he's a year and half old at that weight, it may be he has some Malinois, Tervuren or Belgian Shepherd . The shyness and skittish behavior is not uncommon in all those breeds. Take it slow and easy with him, treat him gently and with lots of patience. He's likely gone through a traumatic time at the shelter. After he settles in a bit, look into joining a basic obedience class with him.

At 40 pounds that's very small, even for a Belgian Malinois. Male mal's average 65-70 pounds. Lighter than many male GSD's but not by that much.

He certainly looks like he may have some degree of Belgian Malinois in him by his coat and shape of his face and ears, but at 40 pounds he is very small for both a GSD or a Belgian Malinois.

He looks like gsd x dutch shep to me. But they aren't that small either. My german shepherd is pure bred and extremely small. We thought something was medically wrong she is so small. I would guess she won't make it to 40 pounds full grown. So anything is possible. Enjoy your new dog!

I think he looks a little doberman in the face.
