It's hard to say. But I don't see any reasons not to think he's not. Other than he should be white and he's more tannish blonde.

Ears usually take awhile to stand up and his paws are typical gsd, huge haha.

He's precious.

You'll be able to tell better when the ears go up


With them down he looks like a mastiff mix, but it's typical for the ears to be down for a bit! I'm just not used to that color but I know they exist

So he could be !

Considering that you dont know who the father is, its hard to tell. . He doesnt look like a usual german shepherd in the coloring and if his father was white and he got his fathers genetics he should have the gene that makes him white not tan. The mother looks german shepherd though. Hes a cute guy, either way and may develop more german shepherd coloring as he gets older.

The white masking gene is recessive so if the mother wasn't a carrier he shouldn't be white. And if she is a carrier there is still a good possibility he wouldn't be white.

Agree it will probably become really obvious as he gets older.

Always so much to learn.

To the OP , when I looked at the pics more closely he looks like he could be a sable. His mom looks like a sable from the coloring around her neck, but I could be wrong. ) Research sable german shepherds. They look a lot lighter when they are young and then change color as their adult hair grows in. What threw me off is that usually the german shepherds have a mask on their face but this is not 100% .
