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.
