Your pup looks very young, but is probably a purebred.

The tail carried curled up over the back like that is called a gay tail. My girl is the same. When she gets excited, it's up over her back.

When she's calmer, it's usually carried down, but it's still got a curl.

Not bad for a puppy I thought was probably going to die on me, she was so starved when I found her. You can't see because of her coat, but you could feel pretty much every bone in her body at four months of age.

And yes, I swear that these photos are of the same dog. GSD can change dramatically over the years.

Yes. That dog appears to be pure GSD probably show lines. The over the back curled tail is "incorrect" in the breed ring but who really cares? You don't work the tail.. and a "gay" tail is not unsound.
