If you don't have the registry's paper with a pedigree from the parent dogs, it's will be always a guess. Enjoy your pup.

His expression, coloring, tail, large front paws, eyes, nose all look like a shepherd. I'd have a hard time placing what could be mixed with him.

Photos are of a much-loved girl who used to own my wife and me. I could not find one where her ears dropped slightly, but every once in a while they did relax some. Her coat texture looks very similar to your dog. Nevertheless, while we did not have papers on her, as she was a rescue, no one ever questioned her GSD bona fides. Shepherd people and veterinarians pretty much took it as a given she was a GSD. Indeed, we get more questions about our 2 year old solid black girl. The classic, "What's she mixed with? A Labrador?" And her ears went up before her siblings, and never drooped.

Are any of the dam's close relatives on line? I do see two dogs in the sire's pedigree that look like they have weak ears.

I think he's just got really big, heavy ears. It's not all that uncommon for a GSDs ears to refuse to go up.
You’re probably right we will see what happens after teething. Vet says he has good cartilage just sill developing so we will see

So, who are the parents?
It's the father's relatives I think have weak ears, as I haven't seen the dam's yet.
Parents are Timberline’s Dust Bowl Dance, and Dark horse, I’m aware his mom has 1 ear that may be weak or damaged
