Tyras looks more like the Dane posted in this link to me. http://www.gdca.org/bissfuturity/1910.htm
If that dog is indeed a Dobie or a Dane, I wish they were still bred like that today because I love how he's put together. On the large side of a medium dog, solid build, muscular, short coat, blocky head, little bit of flews, but not enough to be spit flingers.
Tyras looks like his build would be ideal for someone who needed a service dog for stability & balance.
