What an adorable little face - but not pure-bred. All I can say is that he is at least half German Shepherd. :)

It is amazing how in that 5th picture, he looks just like his mom. Cute pup for sure!

Its hard to say at his young age. He very well could be purebred. Like I said he looks a lot like his mother. He looks shepherd to me. If you seen the parents and the breeder is telling you they are shepherd, and they look shepherd. What is to be questioned? Even if he is mix, it is not much. Hes is a handsome little fellow!

He hasnt seen the father? I think thats what making him question if the pup is purebred. The breeder just told him the father was white and probably provided a picture.

One way to know is if the dog is registered with the AKC and if the breeder gave you the paperwork. If not, your probably like most of us BYB dog owners. We can just guess and go off what we were told.

Ahh I see I thought the last picture was a pic of the father. Thanks for clarifying that. If you like the pup and it is healthy. I say go for it. He may be one of the best dogs you ever had. The same thing happened to me with Taz. The guy that gave him to me 14 years ago. told me both parents were GSD. Through the years the vet told me there was Chow in the wood pile. Taz ended up living 12 years, pretty much problem free. If you are looking for a German Shepherd., seek a reputable breeder; then you will know for sure. If you do not want to do that, then you get what you get. :) Big gamble for sure.
