If someone is telling you the dog is purebred, and has the sire and dam, and they look purebred, then you have to decide whether or not it is possible. And even then, sometimes a pup looks more like a grand sire than either parent.

post some pictures of him from the side and post his age. Just because he came from a pound doesn't mean he's not all GSD.

Working lines have a shorter, rounder muzzle

Look at this head and nose, short and round. You think he's a mix? He's not, I can trace his line all the way back to Horand with some notorious dogs along the way.

He looks thin to athletic. Probably if he was mixed with lab, he wouldn't be thin. They tend to carry weight with little trouble. But I couldn't say for certain that he is mixed at all.

As for some yellow of the hair, lots of whites have some shades in their coats.

^ this. I've seen random occurring whites (i.e. not from 2 white parents expecting white puppies) that had faint yellow or gray markings in their muzzle and saddles.

No one can tell you for sure that your dog is mixed or pure. If it acts like a GSD, treat it like a GSD. Don't worry about it. Being a rescue, you aren't going to breed him, otherwise, what difference does it make?

I don't think he's mixed with a lab because he is so thin, and like a previous poster said he would be a little bit more rounded. I would say he is a mixed, but either way he looks awesome!

I think he could be pure. Either way, he is adorable. Very nice looking boy. Thank you for adopting a shelter dog.
