this is my new dog i just got a few weeks ago from a shelter. they think she is part german shepherd dog, the lady was almost certain she was full but i dont think so. tell me what you think of her and what you would think she is mixed with. thanks









th first 5 was when i first got her and the second was after her grooming appointment a few weeks later. she has put on a little bit of weight since then and doesnt look quite so gangly.

they said she is 2 years old they think, but she sure acts younger than that now that she has come out of her shell.

she looks all shepard to me and certainly doesn't look 2 years old. maybe a year tops. how much does she weigh? we had a mini belgium shepard once that weighed 55 lbs and was similar to her.

well i havent had her weighed but just from picking her up is around 50-60 pounds. they had a vet that checked all the animals at the shelter that was actually part of the shelter. im actually planning on taking her in so i can get her up to date on her heartworm meds. but she is sucha playful little girl.

I'm probably wrong, but she looks like an elkhound to me.

There's just something in that color and in that head shape.

She's very very pretty. I love that wolfish sable color.

i know her color is what drew her to me, i was really taken back by it. i was pretty set on getting a black dog because i know how black dogs are the last to be adopted at most shelters because of superstitions and peoples beleif that a black dog is evil, much like a black cats reputation is. but when i saw her sable color i was like wow! then when i met her she was so sweet that i was sold almost instantly.

marsha, what is acd? im kinda of new to the abbreviations. i understand gsd and a few others but acd is new to me.

I would almost bet she's a purebred Belgian Malinois. Females are around her size full grown (55-65 pounds) and if you google the breed, she is a spitting image of them. She's a beauty!

The head shape is exactly that of an elkhound minus the mane. The rest of her is nowhere near an elkhound though, so.... idk!
