This is my dog Riggs. He's about 42 pounds and he's a year and four months old.

He has the temperament and demeanor of a GSD but he's so small and his coat is very short.

Can anyone help me figure this out?

To me just by looking , Maybe hes mixed with a Doberman or a Rottweiler. The ears dont look shepherd to me. idk , i could be wrong though. Its happened before.haha
Take him to petsmart and have them swab his gums for like 12$ and they can run dna tests. Thats only if its that important.

No he's definitely mixed though I'm not sure with what. Certainly not dobie or rottie given his small size. Some kind of terrier perhaps.

DNA tests are highly inaccurate and oftentimes outright wrong.

Definitely not purebred, maybe some Dobe? He's a cool lookin' dog though! :)

I know I tell this story a lot, but I know of someone who had a dog that looked like a pit bull mix and they took him in for a DNA test and it came out purebred border collie. He was DEFINITELY not a border collie. lol I wouldn't trust a DNA test.

I would say ACD or Kelpie~ they are smaller in structure and have the earset of Riggs. If you have some pics of him sideview that aren't thumbnails it may be easier to see his body.

he's a mix. his ears arent right for a PB GSD and I would say he's mixed with terrier or he's an entirely different breed altogether.

I would question if he has GSD at all, there are other breeds, (and many, many mixes) who has that color pattern.

I see GSD in him but he isn't PB.

Because he is 42 pounds I would say that he is mixed with a mutt or breed that is between 20-40 pounds.
