He looks purebred to me but no way to know for sure without registration paperwork and pedigree information, and his colour would be "sable".

If you are new to the breed, you should start doing some research! Good luck!

What do you know? Why did you get him? Has he seen a vet?

I'm not being rude at all, I just need to know if you need the full 'raising a puppy 101' or have you had dogs before?

First get him to a vet for a check up and any vaccines he needs. If the pics are 2 weeks old he is around 7 weeks? A vet will be more sure of his age.

This is the size of a 7 week old shepherd (he's half husky but size should be similar)... by 8 weeks he was a good bit bigger. There's no way that pup is 2 months old

Salar, people are concerned about his age and age he was removed from the litter because of very valuable lessons he is missing from the mom and litter.

Socialization of the right kind is going to be extremely important. Begin with this thread regarding that: rethinking "popular" early socialization

Your pup didn't have a chance to learn any bite inhibition from his litter. It will be safer for your home, and less painful for you to go through this thread: Puppy BITING!!! Teaching Bite Inhibition You will be finding out very soon if not already why they are called landsharks.

For good puppy information, go through the full puppy sub-forum, then branch out from there: The Puppy Place - German Shepherd Dog Forums

Word of caution - until he has had his vaccines; do not take him in areas other dogs have been. Parvo is very hard for a pup to recover from and is often fatal.

Your pup is a very cute GSP. Since, as you said, you have very little experience, spend a lot of time on this forum, read and ask questions. Tons of experience of all kinds here. You will get answers to questions you didn't even ask.

What food do you have available to you in your country? Are you able to give him raw goats milk? That would be very good for him. Since those pics are from a couple weeks ago, he could be closer to 8 weeks now. Can you tell us what day he was born? To help us determine his age and the best course of action for you.

His sable looks light to me, but I haven't been around sables younger than 8 weeks either. Cute pup though, I think he was trying to stack in that last picture.

Thanks for ApselBear, dawnandjr, BePrepared, Wild Wolf, kelli mims, and especially Twyla and Sabis mom, for your instructions and assessment and advices. Yes, i took him to the vet, and he said that within two weeks he will start giving him vaccines. He said he seems energetic. and by the way, I will take new photos for him and will be more than happy to listen to your comments and advices, since i am a newbie to this.
