Help me determine what specific type of GS Shadow is!

Every where Shadow and I go we normally get questions as to what type of GS he is and i don't know how to answer that question. We adopted him from a family which had no papers. If anyone could give me an incite into possibly what he is or if there are even sub-sections of shepherds it would be greatly appreciated!

I'm fairly new to the GS breed so i'm very eager to learn.

Also there was rumor that he has a good amount of wolf in him. if anyone has any info on if that's possible and what that entails that would also be appreciated !!!

Shadow is 1 year 6 months, 93 lbs very obedient

Thanks in advance!

No wolf there, you've got a sable (color) European working-line German Shepherd. Very good looking boy! You can see he looks like my working-line guy in my avatar. I'd venture a guess your boy is at least part East German Working Line. At a year and a half and 96 pounds he's also a BIG boy.

Definitely no wolf. Whoever made up that rumor is wrong.

As for what kind, he looks euro working line. If I were to guess, probably DDR or Czech, but without a pedigree, your guess is as good as mine.

I agree with the others, I'm not too savvy on differentiating the lines but definitely no wolf. At least not visually.

Chances are that if the previous owner knows that he's got wolf in him, then he does. I wouldn't count it out if thats the case. Where I live its illegal to have a dog that is wolf or even part wolf. I had a collie/wolf once..one of the smartest dogs I ever had. She found a home with 5 year old twins and turned into a wonderful, big, girl

He was told when he bought shadow as a puppy that there was wolf in him, but because there is no record of that we are just trying to go by what we can see.

Also thank you for all the information!

I see your in Illinois, so am I. That is why there is no record of it. Under no circumstances is that dog part wolf!! He is a beautiful shepherd and thats all anybody needs to know
