Is Quinn a Dutch Shepherd?

Hi everyone!

- Quinn is a spayed female, one year old this month
- I got her as a gift from Craig's List (hangs head)
- Quinn is the most "ON" dog I've ever had. By ON I mean this girl is super alert, super active (don't get me started on the zoomies), ready to go at the drop of a dime, smart as they come. This girl need only 2-3 tries to learn ANYTHING. She sees me as HER human, no one else. She does not like people she doesn't know, and she loves her family. Despite the fact I taught her to "speak", she is not very vocal. She isn't too affectionate either. She is awesome on leash. She nearly destroyed my house between 4-9 months of age. She would chew EVERYTHING up. Things I had no idea a dog can chew through. Wood, Plastic, it did NOT matter, it was destroyed. Table legs, mattresses, Sofa Cushions. She can do it LOL.

I was told her mom is a Belgian Malinois, and dad is a Dutch Shepherd. However, I obviously have my doubts considering the price they sold her for. Half her siblings did look Mal-ish, beige colored with black mask.

I will take more pics of her later today, she's a tough one! LOL.

So, does she look like she could be?

face shape and color. The brindle can come from hundreds of breeds but there is a head shape that is typical for a DS and she has way too much white.

If anything, id say pit mix. she has that boxy head and pit bulls have brindle as well.
