Does he look like an 8 week old puppy?

Does this look like an 8 wk old Old English Sheepdog? I adopted this dog today from a lady on Craigslist, the ad said he was 8 wks old, my husband picked him up so I never spoke with her in person but when comparing pics on the internet he seems huge compared to the 8-week old puppies and he's already getting some grey in his hair. My husband weighed him and he came out to be around 30lbs. I don't know why the lady would lie about the age or if it was a typo and I don't really care if he's older just don't know if she is trying to hide something else. I messaged her and asked for his birthday and she said she would get it to me tomorrow, thinking I won't hear from her again though. Also, does he look like a purebred Old English Sheepdog? Thanks in advance.]

Welcome to the forum!

Sadly, I don't think your dog looks like an OES, but I'm not an expert with puppies.

Things are pretty slow around here nowadays, if you're on Facebook we have a group there:
He looks older than eight weeks, but still looks young. I don't think that he is a purebred Old English Sheepdog, but whatever mix he is, he is darn adorable!
Thank you for the replies, I'll make sure to get him to the vet next week. Hopefully, they will be able to give me some more insight.

We're a very friendly group and owning a purebred OES is not a requirement. Many of our members have mixed breeds or other breeds. One of our favorite posters' pet was a horse. :cow: We don't judge. :D

Your pup is cute! We will be here/there for you. :wag:
No he must be older than that we rescued one that was supposedly 16 weeks and he’s a quarter size of that cute guy!!
