Who's my 4 month old puppy's dad?

His mom (a sable german shepherd) lives in a wercking yard. Her owner said that her neighbours german shepherd, chocolate lab or both jumped the fence and got her pregnant. Out of the 8 puppies 6 were chocolate brown so I assumed my puppy and the other one were fathered by a chocolate lab as well until I looked at the pictures again. He kind of looks like the dog behind his mother. What do you think?

A female can be impregnated by two sires, and if both the Lab and GSD mated with her, the same litter can have GSD/Lab cross puppies or pure-bred pups.

Your pup looks like he could be pure-bred. One way to find out is to DNA test the males, and DNA test your pup. Breeders could let you know how you go about it. This is not the same as the DNA tests you can order to find out what breeds your mixed breed dog is - those tests are highly inaccurate and pretty useless.

He looks like my Knuckles LOL
I say he's purebred just going by that. My pups mom looked like the one behind the mom in your picture! (his father is a WGSD) Sables are interesting to say the least!

He's got the one flop ear and everything! I just keep staring at him thinking "what the heck?"... I even had my daughter come see the pics and I said "look! They stole our dog!".

I would say the Shepherd is his dad. He looks nothing like a GSD/Lab cross.

He's definately a patterned sable. There's no lab in that dog.
