Mickey is a very German sheppardy looking alasation. Like, it's uncanny.

well! it's supposed to look like that! i confused it with an afghan hound, because as a kid - my aunt had an afghan and i was told it was an alsation. 40 years! i feel like a pinhead!

Maybe that's how they spelt it back in 1930? ;)

In the UK, German Shepherd's are still commonly known as Alsatians.
