Just because a dog is a specific mix doesn't mean they're going to look exactly like half of one breed and half of another. Certain characteristics might stand out more from one breed more than the other, say like their colouration, ears, height, etc.

An puppy's colour genetics, like with many other animals, are hard to predict. You may have offspring that look like both the mother and father, more like one or the other, or look like neither.

I wouldn't worry about it, to be honest. You probably did receive the dog you were told.
