Is This a Pure German Shepherd?

My dog looks like a Malinois. I have seen her mother and she was sable and the father was a silver German Shepherd. My dog is a working line and she curls her tail while barking. She is aggressive and very over-energetic and does not want to be trained.

The coloring and the face of this dog does not look like a German Shepherd to me. You could do a DNA test to determine the bloodline.

Only a DNA can give you proof of her background 100%. She looks to have the DNA of a Malinois and German Shepherd. Although she has a lot of blonde features , her snout has a darker shade favoring a Shepherd and Malinois. Take a look at the photos of mixed breed , Malinois and Shepherd-Look closely there are a few that look like her -

It is very difficult to base an opinion of breeding based on pictures and with only one picture (and in a laying position) it would be almost a 'fantasy' guess.
You do not state her age, height, weight and these are factors that help show/describe her breeding. Type of pictures that can help identify breeding (along with other information) will be side pictures showing full body size/type with tail and head showing in full picture. Also a full face looking straight into camera.

She looks like a beautiful dog and looks to be still young enough to continue with training even if she is stubborn. Training will be a big pay-off later as any of these breeds are very energetic dogs and need lots of daily exercise so proper training is essential.

She could be a mix of Malinois/shepherd but may have another breed also as her fur does not look exactly like shepherd and I believe true Malinois dogs have a darker face.

Hopefully she is getting her first year shots/vaccinations so you should ask her vet what they think about her breeding as they have access to all of the necessary information and a hands-on feel of her bone-structure, etc.
Remember; puppies can be susceptible to all the diseases floating around everywhere.

You do not say if you received your dog from a registered breeder but it sounds like probably not. A true German shepherd usually costs between $90-thousands and of course, they have official paperwork.
You can check out some of the breeds and see how their looks and size/weight check out with the information on each breed and that might give you a little more to go on.
Some people really like have a DNA test as these kits tell a lot more about your dog than just the breeding. The cost usually run somewhere between $67 - thousands but the inexpensive test tells all about the dog. These kits are sold online, pet stores and your vet.

I have never seen or heard of a blonde German Shepherd - I have of course seen the Black and Tan and the all-white and the all-black, but never this colour before
