Currently about 16 weeks. The shelter said she was a dutch shepherd mix. This forum has been great for looking through similar dogs while waiting for the Wisdom Panel. The DNA results are summarized below for more data points to help others wondering.

Wisdom Panel says no to the dutchy. It out that she is primarily Australian Shepherd and Mastiff. The brindle comes from the mastiff.
