I need a second opinion in my “pure bred” gsd

I was told today that my 6 month gsd looks like she’s mixed and that she’s pretty small for her size, not sure how much she currently weighs

Can't tell if she's underweight if you don't tell us how much she weighs. And from the 2 pictures you provided, she looks GSD to me. Did you adopt her from the pound/rescue? Or buy her from a backyard breeder or puppy mill? Otherwise you would know if she's pure or mixed. Does she have AKC papers? That could help.

She appears purebred, understand that purebred does not mean well bred or breeding quality. She does not look small to me and she sure is cute. The general public seems to believe that GSD's are giant dogs, they aren't.

Looks purebred to me but we can never be 100% sure on the dog’s genetics.

Not sure if this would help but at least the results might give you peace of mind.

she doesn't look too small to me. GSDs aren't supposed to be huge. Smaller ones can be much more agile.

Ooooops... I missed 6 months.......i think for 6 months she looks normal....her proportions look good IMO....Is that why someone thought she wasn't 100% GSD....they thought she was too small?....these dogs change and grow at different rates...hard to say what her size/weight may be at 2 years

She looks like a pure german Shepherd. Females are smaller then males. you can get a dog who is below standard or above standard in litter of pups. Standard weight for a female is around 50- 70lbs. Yes she still has growing to do!

Looks purebred to me. Having white on the paws is not completely abnormal and is relatively common in the American Showlines. Not sure why people think GSDs are supposed to be massive, especially the females. And I agree with Car2ner, the small females tend to be absolute forces to be reckoned with IMO. Fast and agile.

The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.
