What breed is my puppy? Help!

I guess only time will tell, but here's a bit of background info:

She's almost two months old, black around her face and black outlines her ears. White tipped tail and paws as well as white belly.

Here are some pictures:

I picked her up from a place with lots of lost animals in Pakistan. I asked the owner who seemed to know as much about dogs as he did about quantum physics, he told me it's a King Shepherd. I don't know if I believe that because she doesn't look much like a KS.

King Shepherd puppies:





Now, my first guess was a CAO (Central Asian Ovcharka)/Afghan Koochi. As many of them are shipped to Pakistan and many are bred here for guarding. But upon more inspection of what those puppies look like, it doesn't seem likely either.

I recently looked up the Kangal, and.. my puppy looks similar to this dog's puppies:









Sure maybe she's not a pure Kangal, but can anyone else tell me if they see a similarity?

Looks like a dead ringer for a Kangal. Look at the bone structure, going to be a big pup. Pretty.

Thanks she is gonna be big indeed... had no idea what she was when I picked her up. She was tiny when she was a month old, and already she's not even 2 months and she grew so much!

Here she is, fooling around

First of all your photos are really large and it's hard to see your puppy's full face without it taking up the whole screen. Second of all, you're mentioning really rare breeds like Kangals and Ovcharkas. There are only a handful of these in the US (assuming that's where you're from). It's highly unlikely your dog is a mix of them, or even King Shepherd--which is a sort of hybrid dog anyway. If you got your puppy from a shelter it's likely a German Shepherd mix, POSSIBLY Anatolian mix, as they're becoming more popular. But strays and unwanted puppies are usually mixes of more common breeds. It's sometimes impossible to tell what a mixed puppy is until adulthood. The breed(s) might become clearer with maturity, but you can always do those DNA tests.
