I’m wondering is my gsd is a GSD or a gsd malinois mix?? She’s my sidekick lol she is about 2 1/2 years old and weighs around 75lbs give it take. Is that normal?

I think she definitely looks full GSD! Is she spayed and if yes when? If she was spayed early that could explain her leggy appearance, which might make you think she's not full gsd.
Well, I am new to breed so I can't answer your question. But, I can tell you that she is a lovely girl! Love her markings and how well muscled her hind end is!
Looks like a GSD. Mixes are funny things though; sometimes they don't look 50/50. Her weight is fine and she looks beautiful.
I could be wrong but she looks like an ASL.
She looks great- phenotypically she sure looks all GSD.
But without her pedigree, you'll never know for sure.
75 lbs is normal, even a bit large for a GSD female.
agreed, GSD, ASL
definitely looks like American show line breeding .
Looks a bit early Covy Tucker Hill -- reminsent of Don Quixote type PROGENY - example only Gem Crest Princess Kaiulani
not possible to be that direct a relation because of the 20 or so years that have passed --
I did have a Don Quioxte son , hbi dam was a Merkel's Quaestor daughter - bottom line to Von Nassaus Morning Jewel.
He happened to be an exceptional dog with qualities missing in many of our gsd now.
***** check the ears for tatoos , check the flank for tatoos -- see if you cn get a microchip scan.***********
$200 is a lot to spend on satisfying idle curiousity - when the dog does have AKC , breeder is knows to the owner, parents have been seen , and , the dog has been spayed.
I do have to ask how it was determined that the dog has hip dysplasia
you said "I looked closer at her running and what not I took her to the vet and yes she has hip dysphasia, doc said it’s not to bad but it’s there?
you aren't expert at the movement of the gsd , and the vet , unless he did an x ray , is assuming -
You shouldn't be disappointed -- you don't really know . X ray is the only way to really know.
I have never heard of shots as you said " A few shots to help and prayers can help anything."
No shots . Prayers , you are on your own .
I would be more proactive . I would spend the $200 you could spend on a dna test to determine "purebred gsd"
on things that matter and can benefit the dog whether there is hip dysplasia or not . Preventive care .
Prevent inflammation. Aim for joint stability - muscle tone and ligament integrity.
If the "breeder" has a male , registered AKC , and the female then it would be very easy and inexpensive to get
a paternity test done by purchasing two kits , one for each parent from https://vetdnacenter.com/dna-tests/canine-dna-testing/ -- a simple cheek swab is all that is required.
If you choose to do this you may as well get the biological material analysed for Degenerative Myelopathy - because you
can take proactive steps through nutrition to delay onset .
Let this local breeder friend know what is going on. .
can you PM me a pedigree or would you reveal the AKC reg'd names of sire and dam.
I am curious to find out if there was any distant relationship to the lines that might be there .
as for your concerns quote " I was questioning the breed because of her longer snout and longer ears."
I would say the head is actually quite nice and typical of the group that has become the "Amercian show lines"
You can't compare her to working or west German show or Czech or DDR -- .
