For some reason, some breeds have dominant genes and their mixes look like that more dominant breed. German Shepherd is one of those. Even if they don't have GSD coloring they have the face shape.

Thunder may grow into an adult that looks more like a Mastiff/Shepherd mix, right now he's just cute!

Looks like he and handsome Rex are making friends!

I can see the shepherd, but I don't see any bullmastiff. You can see the two breeds side by side on Squ'mey's page.

He is pretty broad like a mastiff. Sometimes it's hard to see the second breed if their mixed. Jax is Golden Retriever & German Shepherd. I don't see the Golden in her. He'll make a great dog. Good Luck!

He looks more like a German Shepard and a collie/american Eskimo dog

Looks like a mutt. Just because someone's dogs had puppies and you bought the mutt from them instead of the pound, does not make them a 'Breeder' If you want to know what your dog is you need to have paper work, to see the mom and dad, and to know what bread their parents are. If not, sorry, no go. I have all mix breads, when people ask "what bread is this dog" I say, take a guess, not that it matters, because with out labeling your dog with a breed you can't read a book about what they are supposed to do. You instead have to learn about your dog yourself, connect with and teach your dog yourself to better understand their reactions to different things :D I love having mix breeds, I feel I have a great connections with them and would miss out on these things if I got too stuck on a specific breed.
