is my dog a german shepherd?

hello everyone. this is my 9 week old puppy, Teyah ?? we were sold her under the ideal that she is in fact a German Shepherd but just trying to gain a second opinion. I know it's almost impossible to tell without papers/real life contact. I am convinced she is a GSD however my partner is unsure. she is slightly underweight for her age bear in mind. would love some input from more experienced owners. thanks in advance!

She looks like a good possibility. She could be a Mal too I don't know. She's a cutie for sure.

To my untrained eye, she looks like a cross with a Belgian Mal, but I could be very wrong

She could be a pure bred GSD. There is such a thing as a Fawn GSD, all tan, no saddle. I don't see any Malinois in her. Do you have pictures of the parents, siblings? links to a pedigree, or registered names of the parents? Just trying to look at this dog's background to help you figure out what you have.

Maybe you are confusing some other shepherding dogs? GSDs and Belgian Malinois are completely different breeds, originating in different countries, from completely different foundation dogs.

There is some surface physical resemblance, but that is purely coincidental.
