Hello! Help identifying our puppy Hero and any tips?

Hello our son received a new puppy for his birthday a few weeks ago my sister in law adopted from a rescue. Of course he is everyones puppy now though lol. He should be about 12-13 weeks based on what they said but need help identifying breed. They said hes more german shepherd but think hes mixed with corgi and they dont forsee him growing bigger than a beagle sized. He does not look corgi and neither does any of his siblings. Mom picture looks a like a not-full-grown german shepherd. They didnt have pic of dad. Coworkers think hes mixed with boxer and googling pics he really does but his paws arent huge? What are their temperments based on the mix u think he is? So far he does well with our 3 children though nibbles on our 3 year old like a littermate. Also welcoming any tips for crying and whining and any milestone tips! Havent had a dog since my husband and I were kids and never started with puppies before so kinda just playin everything by ear :-) thanks!

It's a little soon to tell his breed, but I could see some pit or boxer in there. Maybe show us a picture of the mom? Was she purebred German Shepherd? If the paws aren't big enough to be boxer, he might have the size cancelled out by a smaller breed in his lines or it could be pit because the taller ones don't normally have too big of paws.
Whatever he is, he's cute!

Also for the crying, if you've got him in a crate or something similar, leave him there until he's quiet. Don't cave in to his pitiful whines, if you do then he'll know all he has to do is whine and cry and you'll rescue him. Of course, make sure he's not hungry or has to potty before doing this, and if he does, wait for a moment of silence or a pause between whines then fulfill his needs. Maybe even give him a toy to chew on or a treat before you put him in there so he learns to associate it with good stuff. Good luck!
Not many milestones I can think of, just be prepared for the "teenage" stage, which is adolescence. Depending on his size, it might hit at six-eight months.

Can't help with the breed, but he is adorable. Welcome to the forums.

As for the crying and whining, if he is in a crate or another form of cage put a blanket over the top. Sometimes that will help tremendouly. Also when crate training don't just do it at night. Try to put him in the cage when you are home and can supervise for 5 to 10 minutes and let him out during a period when he is not whining. This will enforce that the cage is not punishment and that he will be let out to be with you.
