    It looks to a grown Doberman with natural (uncropped) ears.
    Hard to tell age from this picture. It looks young as in not full grown yet but too old to crop the ears.

    Are both pictures the same dog?

    If they are the same dog, the first pic looks like the ears were cropped, if they're flopping the ears probably were not posted long enough and now they are cropped, floppy ears. A dobe's ears need to be posted for about 6-7 months so that they stand.

    It looks to be purebred, but mixes can look more like one breed than another. You can't be 100% positive without knowing the breeder, parents, or a DNA test.

    Yes, I think I can tell that despite the fact they look cropped in the laying-down position they are uncropped. Some Dobes have smaller ears that can look cropped when they are up for whatever reason. I know one member's late Dobe that was like this.

    Well, I'd say it's at least pretty close to purebred. Are you just curious, or do you have a specific reason for wanting to know? :)

    @sky it's hard to tell from pictures, and especially with such similar looking breeds, you may not know 100% without a DNA test. Do you have an pics of him standing? Rotties are bigger boned, and often wider and heavier than a dobe.

    I also hear a lot that my uncropped dobe is "an awfully skinny rottweiler" so it just as well could be misinformed people assuming your dog is a rottie, or part rottweiler just because of the u cropped ears.

    PLEASE don't breed your dog with not knowing his health history or lineage!

    Thanks for your honesty. I don't want to be mean, but people should really not breed dogs unless they know the dogs' lineage and if they are going to pass along health problems into the gene pool of the breed.

    Also, breeding should really only be done in order to benefit the breed, and the dogs should have earned some titles that prove they have what it takes to represent the breed well and do what the breed was designed to do.

    Take care.
