I think it is going to have to be Saturday that we pick him up. Work and weather reasons.

He certainly looks purebred. just be aware that you are probably supporting a puppy mill and you need to make sure to check into the parents health. Have you been to the breeders to see what living conditions this dog is in? Have you seen the puppy in person? The fact that you are asking if he's purebred implies that you haven't seen the parents and possibly only a picture of the puppy.

He looks very GSDish. Does anyone else think his ears are bit small for a GSD pup. and his snout seems a bit thick to me. both my GSD's had much bigger ears and even at this age, a more defined snout. Could be the angle for the snout, but I think the ears are a bit short. No matter, he is beautiful. But no purebred GSD with a registered pedigree would cost $80.

He definitely did not cost $80.00! Where did that number come from?

The $80 was for a DNA test not the cost of the dog
