Default Opinions - on age, please

OK, I wasn't sure where to post this, but if it's wrong, I apologize. The shelter has this girl at 2 years old - any thoughts on anything?

Very pretty dog. Would make a lovely companion. Hard to say from the photo - I would guess 3-4 yrs. old.

Something looks odd with her. Like her body and her legs are too small in relation to her head. Maybe it's just the pic? Does the shelter info list height and weight?

In my opinion, she still looks like a relatively young puppy. Maybe in the 9-12 month range. She just looks so disproportionate, as if she still has a lot of growing to do.

How big is she ? How big is her mother? Mother look PB GSD?

She looks younger to me too. Feet and legs look like under a year .
