Hi from a newbie

Hi everyone. I am new here and pretty new to German shepherds in general. My GF had one which we recently lost and so she is looking for a new puppy. We have been offered the puppy that is in the pictures BUT a few friends have said it looks like a cross breed. I just wondered if anyone of you have any opinions ??

I'm just an amateur, but I'd guess there's some other breed in the pup's background based on that curled tail. Looks mostly GSD, though, to me. Super cute, either way. Is it important that the new dog be purebred? If so, then I'd recommend patience and taking the time to look for a reputable breeder. Good luck, whichever way y'all decide to go. My own pup just turned 14 weeks and they are a handful!

typically GSDs don't carry a tail that high and curly. If they want to sell it to you as a pure breed I'd not take them at their word. If it is a nice pup with the kind of temperament that will work with your lifestyle and is otherwise healthy, and they are looking for a good home for him, I'd say go for it.

If your sweetheart wants a purebreed GSD someone here can suggest good breeders in her area.
