I thought she was a mix as well, but one of the volunteers seems to think she may just be a poor example of a purebred. As we know, it is always hard to tell from pictures.

Here is what the rep had to say about Lucy:

Quote:I love Lucy to
death -- and I actually believe that she *could* be a pure
GSD, just an
extremely...er...non-conforming-to-the-breed-standard dog.
She had a fabulous coat, before she started pulling it out
from stress. :-( She is an incredibly personable dog, and
(like most GSDs) -- just wants to please. She is one of the
few dogs currently in the shelter that will indeed come when
called, walk nicely on a leash, and (reportedly) is
housebroken and will live civally in a house situation. She
*had* been in a foster home, who said that she was "the
perfect dog." He had to move to New Mexico, so back she
came.
Apparently Lucy was adopted, but after a couple of days, got into a tussle with the resident dog.

Oops, sorry for the duplicate quotes. Here is what was said about her temperament:

Quote:The horrible thing is -- now Lucy has a big "aggression
toward animals" mark listed on her sheet and she started
to pull her own hair out from stress. ...she loves attention of all
kinds, she doesn't care where it comes from. She just
can't be placed with another dog -- OR -- if placed with
another dog, it would have to be in a knowledgeable home
that can read the signs. [when out with another dog]...although showing signs of dominance --
she was reasonably ok with the "right" other dog.
