Default Can anyone identify this breed of German Shepard?

I know to get completely accurate results I will need to purchase a DNA kit, but at the time we are unable to. If anyone could help identify the breed of my Shepard or at least give me some ideas to look into it would be greatly appreciated! To give a little insight she is a female, about 2.5 years old, very, very loyal, loves the daughter, loves to follow us as owners everywhere around the house, and suffers from separation anxiety very badly from us as owners. She is very alert and actually opens the blinds and looks out herself and alerts to the slightest of noise outside, however we're in the process of trying to get her over separation anxiety and barking when leaving the house. In the meantime, it would be great if someone could point me in the right direction of what my baby could be mixed with!

Here are some pictures! It's obvious by the face, ears, and mouth/nose structure that she has GS in her, but the blonde/cream color is throwing me off and leading me to wonder what else could be in her!

I don't know that I understand your question. If your dog is a mix, then it isn't a certain breed of German Shepherd.. it's a mix. Also DNA kits are not really reliable.

Thank you guys for the help. Seeing that you guys are long time GS Owners would you guys happen to have any suggestions for me on the separation anxiety? We're having an issue with ours barking. Of coarse she alerts when anything is outside, but it seems she likes to stick her head around the blinds and bark every time we leave or start the car in the drive way. We left the house late the other night and came back the next day with our neighbor telling us the neighbors behind us called the cops out because she was barking (because we were away). Our neighbor then proceeded to tell us the officers were about to kick in the door or break in the house because they thought someone might be inside injured or hurt. I'm assuming that was because they we're called and trying to knock on the door and getting no response and one of our vehicles was parked in front of the door.

We're starting to change our habits after I did some reading, such as ignoring her when we walk in the house for the first ten minutes or so so she's not always excited for us to get home. Also no treats when we first return. I was thinking about ordering a training collar (not a shock) but looking for one that beeps with the high pitched noise and vibrates. Any other ideas?

A few suggestions....

1. Get her good and tired, before you leave the house. (Long walk, play ball, etc.)

2. Leave the radio or television on.

3. Crate her, when you are gone, so she can't see outside and has a safe place to be.

4. Thundershirt

5. Calming Pheromone Spray

She does not look GSD to me, maybe more Malinois instead of GSD, but not 100% more like 50%.

I see a mix. Possible Mal mix or GSD mix. But not pure. Cute though: )

He might just be a fawn colored GSD. My last GSD Ossie was a fawn GSD.
