Help, Questionable GSD @12 weeks

Hi! First time here. So i have a “assumed” GSD pup that is “assumed” 12 weeks. She is also supposed to be purebread (Mom CKC Dad AKC). Long story short, the couple we bought Meeka from won’t return calls or texts. Not sure what is true and what’s not. And it’s had me worried. This is what worries me:

1) Size is 11 pounds @ 12 weeks
2) Ears don’t even look like they’re able to stand
3) shades of white on her paws and kind of chest
4) curly tail 50% of the time

How old would you guess her age?
Are these ears normal being on the side like that?
Shades of white don’t seem to be typical?
Curly tail i hear mixed things about.

She’s very well behaved and very smart. But here’s Meeka!

What you have is an absolutely adorable pup. Age is tough to say but could be twelve weeks, does she have all of her puppy teeth?
GSD is doubtful, but she is cute. Does it matter?

She is adorable!Looks like maybe some husky mixed in there.She reminds me a lot of my girl Misty as a pup - the eyes,ears,and curly tail.The color looks GSD though.No matter,she's a bright eyed little fuzzball and did I mention adorable?Enjoy her!

Oh she is absolutely adorable and fun. I guess I’m just trying to ask people that have experience with GSD. Her not being purebread is fine with me but I’d like to get an idea of what people think she might be asap for training and obedience purposes. Also i don’t want to expect a 75lbs GSD if I’m getting a 45lbs mixed something.

Any ideas on what else she could be? And why? Thanks so much for the replies btw

She is an adorable pup and is going grow into a beautiful girl. She looks mixed, but perfectly healthy and that is what is important. Enjoy your baby and don't worry if she is purebred. Both of my dogs are mixes and they are awesome. I wouldn't trade them for the world.

Love her and train her. She will be the best dog you have ever had.

To my untrianed eye, it seems she's prob less than 12... I'd guess closer to 10wks, but her coat looks more gown up, like that of a 16+wk pup. I mean, my pup's fur had long hairs, but mostly puppy fluff and looked disheveled and unkept (started looking nicer around 12wks). She didn't start getting her adult coat until 15wks

I wouldn't be surprised if she was actually around 16wks old. Fur just looks too much like adult fur

Her ears seem maybe lab-ish? I only had a lab so anything looks lab to me, haha

I've seen purebred GSDs with a curled tail, so I wouldn't go off that. White on the chest I THINK can be on a PB. The 2 dogs I've seen have had Aussie Shepherd mixed and that lead to a white chest

I'd just bet that she's probably going to be on the small side

Maybe when she's older some other traits may show better in build

shades of white can be found on purebred puppies, but yours does look like it has something else mixed in. Have fun with your puppy. There looks to be GSD in there, so training is your friend.

She definitely doesn't look like purebred GSD.

Just when I think I've seen the cutest puppy ever....she is real cute. You can do a DNA test that's probably the best way to find out. Just work with what motivates the puppy in front you until you know more about her breed. Best advice I can think to give. Enjoy
