Your boy's a looker, that's for sure. I can't comment on if/if not, but now that the holiday weekend is over, others will probably chime in.
Any other information that you can relay regarding behavior, temperament, attitude toward other dogs/animals/kids/strangers, prey drive, learning abilities, etc., would be helpful, though doesn't provide an absolute answer.
What have you been working on with him?
Also, post some full-side and frontal shots and stats about weight, age, etc.

He is about 8-9 months old (some of the pictures posted are from a while back)
not sure how to measure how tall he is? head looking forwards or from the top of his ears or maybe the shoulder?
behavior, temperament is very very relaxed and confident and sometimes lazy, i have had to pick him up and carry him out the house before. He is very easy to handle you can do anything with him and the worst reaction you will get is that he thinks its a game and try and bite (soft play bites) towels when your trying to dry him for example.
Attitude toward other dogs is for the most part good but his main playmate is a 46kg rottweiler so he has yet to learn to tone things down with smaller dogs.
Strangers he loves but kids i don't know.
prey drive is intense, it like someone has thrown a switch. Not sure what he would be like if he got hold of another animal, he did get hold of the cat but i broke that up and even after having to remove the cat from his jaws the cat was not hurt at all not even bruised (pride maybe).
He has just been done and is not loving the cone of shame
Cone comes off Monday and then its off to training classes, this is my 1st dog so its all kinda new to me.

In those last photos he really looks a lot like a doberman mix... I've seen the same markings on the legs on a litter of "Rottweiler/Plott hound" puppies at a shelter, but I'm not so sure that was accurate. Either way he's absolutely adorable and looks to be a lot of fun!!!!
