How old is she, do you know? She looks pretty young. To me, she looks like she's a pure WGSD. Her coat just looks a little shorter than most in the last photo.

She looks pure to me. My American GSD had the smooth short coat until she was about a year old then it became more shapely, or feathered.

She looks pure to me. Most shelters/rescues aren't aware of the many colors GSDs come in. Tanner is a Black GSD, but while he was at the shelter he was listed as "German Shepherd Mix"

She looks like a purebred WGSD, and a very cute one!

She looks PB to me - short coated (for now) but definitely PB from what I can tell - what a cute little nose she has

There's a shelter out here, and almost every dog they get in, they list as a mix. One time they had a gorgeous, obviously purebred GSD male, and he was listed as a mix.

She looks pure to me too. My girl Jamie had real short fur when she was younger. She did not get her longer coat until she got older. Any way about it whether she is mixed or not she is a real cutie! By the way, welcome to the forum!

Most shelters will list everything as a mix as they can't 100% prove the dogs aren't anything but.

Id say you cant be sure. Ive seen many Alaskan huskies that look like that and many pure GSDs. Regardless, Im sure your dog is wonderful.

Ditto GSD- 6 years old
Daisy Alaskan Husky- 4 years old
Weegee Toy Poodle- 2 years old

Always loved, missed, and remembered:
