Hi,

Ive recently got a dog that I assume he's a German shepherd, unfortunately no papers were given for it, and I have no experience in dogs.

While searching online, I've seen this forum with once topics about German,
I wish I could get help by identifying the breed of my dog,

Ive been told that he's 3 months old.
I have attached some pictures for him,

Yes, age & breed appear accurate. He is a black and red long coated German shepherd.

you definitely got some German shepherd there. A vet can examine his teeth and help with an age approximate. He's certainly a cutie. But long hair? Gosh what does that make Duke? (the speedbumb attached). As long as you are both happy it does not matter about his breed. A German Shepherd is NOT a starter dog, so feel free to drop by any time he outsmarts you (oh, he will).

Agreed. He's a long haired GSD. Cute little guy! Congrats.

Definitely looks like a German Shepherd Dog. A good looking one too. I've always have dogs like Labs, pitbulls, mutts, ect. My first time owning a German Shepherd Dog, 2 at that. And boy are they different. Well I've only have had one for roughly 2 months and the other for a month. So not sure how they'll keep changing in behaviour. Definitely weren't as friendly right away like I was use to with puppies. Very aloof

It takes time for a German Shepherd to adopt YOU. Like most people, they want to know you a little bit before making the decision about whether they want to be your friend or not. Duke took about a month before he decided we weren't so bad and maybe he could go outside. Now he's so underfoot as to be dangerous. And housebroken.
