Not sure on the breed, looking for opinions!

Hello, I'm a marine currently away from home, and the lady got us a dog. He's about 11 months old and the previous owners said he was a german shepherd. We already have a purebred, so his coloration brings me to question of his breed. Let me know what you think.

Beautiful dog no matter! I have seen references online to "fawn shepherds" and their appearance is very similar. That is just my humble observation.

Handsome dog! Could he be a Malinois/GSD mix?

He could be purebred.There are a few folks that have posted pictures of gsds of this color.A very light golden sable or some people call it 'fawn'.It's not correct per the breed standard but no matter.He's very handsome!Hope he's a good for your family and you all enjoy him

I see Akita in that head in the 2nd picture but I can't place my finger on why. He is so incredibly handsome!

Apparently he's a sweetheart, just very clingy. He likes to be right by her side at all times. Which to me is good thing since I'm not home, but shes working on training him, hes just as smart as he is handsome from what I'm told.

Jumped out at me to. I think it's the forehead, eyes but I couldn't pin it either. He is a good looking guy.
