I'm not sure if that is entirely true since I see no lab traits in him either . Mom was purebred and there I think was a male breeder on site but some how the lab broke in and hopped the fence and got ahold of her too . So I have no idea . I thought she said he was chocolate German shepherd which I can see but I don't see any lab in him I wonder if they are related . Oh and I also was told he was a runt and he is 4 mths and huge but those ears are big and cute . I hope someone can put some idea as to what he is as help? Having trouble figuring how to add photos but I'll try . Plus he has short hair?
