I got mine on Craigslist too, she was about 12 weeks old. I couldn't have gotten a better dog Just keep going with the training and socialization. When I see my dog with the smaller kids my first thought is what a wonderful family pet these dogs make. I can't help you with the lines, just enjoy him

Oh yeah the lines really do mean nothing but the curiosity is getting the best of me lol. Lots of dogs on CL and with patience you will get lucky like the two of us did.

He is precious. I'm so glad you found each other. Bet he will be the best dog you ever had.

Hi and congrats on your new pup. Sounds like a perfect match for your family!

No one can say for sure just going off a few pics, but he looks like he is American lines to me, judging by his short coat, big huge ears (he will grow into them), and his more refined head and muzzle.

He seems to be at a good weight from the pics - keeping track of how much he weighs as he grows is fun, but the best way to know if he is of good weight is to look at his condition - every dog is different, and every pup develops at a different rate, so just going by a number doesn't mean much. Some dogs lag behind then catch up, some dogs put on weight at a steady pace, others go through growth spurts, etc . . .

He seems just fine in the pics - watch that he does not fill out to much, or does not loose too much weight - if he does, adjust his food accordingly.

I bet this pup just thought he died and went to heaven going from a chain to a normal, happy, family life.

I assumes he was from American lines but that was just a guess. Lol

Thanks

He definitely fits the American line. He has a long body with narrow bone structure. I read that here (Types of German Shepherds, by Wildhaus Kennels ). Anyways whether German, American he's an awesome pup. Ill definitely keep posting pics and read on here.

I forgot to ask unfortunately the edit your post is so quick that I have to make a new post sorry.

What's the deal with downwards back slope. Jack doesn't have that. Is he suppose to or it's possible one of his parents is not pure GSD?
