My 4 month old German shepherd is supposedly product of a neighbors chocolate Lab too

My 4 month old German shepherd is supposedly product of a neighbors chocolate Lab too-image.jpgI'm not sure if that is entirely true since I see no lab traits in him either . Mom was purebred and there I think was a male breeder on site but some how the lab broke in and hopped the fence and got ahold of her too . So I have no idea . I thought she said he was chocolate German shepherd which I can see but I don't see any lab in him I wonder if they are related . Oh and I also was told he was a runt and he is 4 mths and huge but those ears are big and cute . I hope someone can put some idea as to what he is as help? Having trouble figuring how to add photos but I'll try . Plus he has short hair?

since there is question NO papers should be issued.

go back to breeder with a DNA kit from DDC for a parental confirmation --- 4 , just to be sure . Cheek swab for your pup , one for the dam, one kit for the swab of the male GSD possible and cheek swab for the wandering chocolate Labrador .
You will then get results , just like on Jerry Springer or Maury Povich on which one , if either is the sire of the litter . One will be excluded , the other will/may be included.
Doesn't look like a purebred though.
At the same time if you you may get a kit specific for DM testing .

OMG is he ever cute, lol.
I'm kind of in the same boat, mom is PB GSD and Dad is a fence hopper, however I don't think a Chocolate Lab is the culprit since his ears are up...like Carmen said only a DNA test will tell for sure...

I wouldn't spend $ on DNA kits... unless there is another neighbor with a boxer, doberman, pharoah hound or ridgeback. that's a gorgeous pup but i highly doubt dad was a gsd or the lab. just enjoy your pup!!

I don't see lab, either. Maybe Boxer... If the lab was able to jump the fence, all the dogs in the neighborhood could have done so, too.
But he is super cute and has his ears up. Enjoy your pup.

I don't know if that is an expense I can afford at this point . We got him and really looked for a German shepherd , due to the desire for a loyal and intelligent buddy we could love and feel safe and protected by. I just really was surprised when one day we looked at him and his ears were sticking up high as a kite and have since not gone down. I thought they were funny. I also saw photos of his siblings 2 silver and the others Black and Tan and him . My father had a silver one growing up and loved him but we are all a bit confused by his background I know very little about dogs except I had a chocolate Doberman years ago and a Pomeranian , so I don't know what other than I had really hoped to have a bond with an intelligent companion we could have security of knowing his genetic traits because of the simple fact I don't know what to expect from him and I have a toddler I was just curious if there were any ideas off hand of what he might be . Weird but those ears are unmistakably German shepherd

What a cute pup! Does it truly matter what he is, you will love him just the same? What is his name? Enjoy

this isn't a "dna" kit which will tell you the pup is a mix of shiba inu , poodle, schipperke and Neapolitan mastiff -- not a guess the breeds thing

this is paternity , maternity . 99.9% accuracy

Yep he's cute thanks , I just want to know what to expect you know especially since he's around my toddler and myself I hoped to get a German shepherd since his siblings were Black and Tan and silver so I know his mommy was purebred and his daddy ???? I appreciate all input . He's very loyal and attached already to us he looks like scooby do[ATTACH]Click image for larger version
