Darby Crash

What kind of dog would you say he is?

I got Darby about three years ago from a puppy rescue, and they said he's a German Shepherd Corgi mix, but now that he's finally done growing, I just don't see it.
I wish I had really recent pictures, but he still looks the same, maybe a little taller. He's about knee height on me, with a very strong build, but he has skinny skinny legs, and a really thick tail.

Any ideas?

What a handsome guy! I totally see the gsd, but don't see an ounce of corgi. With his sable/brindle colour it is possible there might be boxer or some other bully breed. Hard to say, but still a real beauty!

...and a brindle coat, which is not very German Shepherd, and I don't see Corgi....

How about his personality/habits. Sometimes those tell you more about breed that the looks.

My first consideration, although rare, is a Dutch Shepherd or DS mix:

possible mixes...
Whippet
Australian cattle dog (more of a ticked coat)

I did the Mars wisdom panel on 2 of my dogs with surprising results, the 3rd I won't test as he was easy to figure out.
Sonny was listed as a Corgi/Yellow Lab mix - he's not. He is Beagle/Golden Retriever. No way anyone that knows these breeds makes a mistake like that. He looks like a 'Blond' Beagle! His winter under coat is long and fluffy, like a Golden's.

I don't see any corgi in him, except there are some corgis with brindle patterns like that... I see some German Shepherd, and also Belgian Mallinois or Belgian Sheepdog. He's gorgeous, btw.
