Default New Adopted Mix

Our new puppy was labeled as a shepherd mix. I see the shepherd features and traits but was wondering what else she could be. This is just for fun.

-Black with a white patch on her chest and some random white hairs on her paws.
-Tan color behind her ears and it's starting to spread in other areas as she grows.
-5 months and 25lbs.
-Body is long and lean right now.
-Very mellow and seems to have an old soul.
-Not a goofy puppy but very mature.
-Prey drive and can almost catch a rabbit on our 2 acre property.
-Great nose so I'm hoping she can do some K9 nose work in the future.
-Digs a bit and will find acorns or rocks. Not sure if it was a fluke or she smelled them.
-Hops through low bushes while chasing lizards(really cute to watch)
-Great hearing

When she sits her body reminds me of a cat the way her back curves.

I see the shepherd too. I think I also see either Lab or possibly pit bull.
If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.

She sort of has an Akita look to her but that might just be her facial expression.

Thank you ~Dixie's Mom~ for my awesome siggy!

Thanks for the replies. When I do Google searches there are a couple of dogs who look exactly like her and the descriptions where shepherd/lab. I wish the DNA testing was accurate. I would love to find out. The unknown is killing me.
It's funny because my husband is not fond of shepherds or PB so I just tell him she is mixed with lab and show him the pictures.
