Question Purebred German Shepard? or Mix?

Please help identify what type of dog he is? He weighs about 125 lbs., and is full-grown. Sorry the pics are so bad... he hates the camera, so it's very hard to get a still pic of him. Thanks!!

He looks like he could be a lab/shepherd mix to me. I can see both in his handsome face!

I definately see GSD and perhaps a splash of lab. Gorgeous dog! I have one that looks similar.

Thanks! He's one great dog, and so gentle!! My father found him wandering out on his farm, and he followed him back to his car, so my dad brought him home.

I thought part lab too, but was thinking maybe part some other larger breed, as he seems to be taller off the ground than most GSD's I've seen.

Your dad is a gentle soul! There are reasons at times why animals gravitate towards certain people when they require help. Your dad and you are this dog's angels. You will see how many rewards to will get in return from him due to your kindness. Bless you all.
