Default Not sure the age of our puppy. Need help!

We rescued a puppy and we are not sure her age or breed. The lady we rescued her from said she was 6 weeks and a german shepherd. The vet doesn't think she is german shepherd though.
We have heard many mixed things when people see her.
We are also wondering her age because she can't keep down solid kibble yet. We have watered it down but it is still too hard on her tummy. We are afraid she isn't 6 weeks and can't handle this type of food yet. Any suggestions??? Not sure the age of our puppy.

To me, she looks 6 weeks, but doesn't look purebred. As for the food thing, what was the woman feeding her? I would be rather nervous about her not being able to keep food down, and my mind immediately said "megasophagus" (sp)...You might want to keep feeding what the woman was feeding,,try a canned mash type food, ask your vet about mega.. Very cute whatever she is
