I'm thinking about adopting this 4 month old puppy below. They listed her as a GSP with a weight of 7lbs at 4 months.
What do you guys think? Would like to get some feedback/opinions as to her ("real"?) breed and weight for her age.
7 lbs at 4 months doesn't seem normal for a GSP, so it makes me think that she's a mix?
Sorry, that is not a GSP.
Looks like a mix to me. I do not see any GSP looks at all, but have seen mixes that do not outwardly appear as one of the parents.
It's not a spoof post. I was at the shelter today and this photo is distorted on their website and makes the little puppy look much bigger than she actually is?
I agree that it has no GSP looks but at the LA shelter here they insisted it's a GSP and the lady even said her size is normal for 4 months.
I was just stunned and thought I was crazy, hence why I posted here? She looks like a mix to me too, maybe there is GSP in there but definitely with something else!
I mean if her growth rate is 7lbs at 4 months, then she will be 22.5 lbs at 1 year which will make her pretty small - almost beagle/terrier size.
Here, I adjusted the photo a bit on my own to make it better as they were obviously incabaple on the shelter website:
Ok, glad you clarified. I have seen spam posts on here unfortunately that can seem real. You most definitely are not crazy...the lady at the shelter, however, may not be quite as educated on breeds as she might like to think lol. I also don't think this dog has a lick of GSP in it. For comparison, I'd say my female was about 20-25 pounds at 4 months of age and she was the runt of her litter. The coloring, paws, ears, and size, would also lead me to assume this puppy is more apt to be a terrier/beagle mix. It's an adorable puppy! But, just definitely not a GSP if that is what you are looking for to adopt.
