Sure looks it to me. It's on German eBay described as an "Afrikakorps soldat mit hunde". Don't think so.

I agree the tie and shirt, sure look American to me. Wouldnt be surprised if the soldier was of German decent though.

I know of German POWs who were photographed in US camps wearing American uniform pieces. I have an example or two where they are shown with their pet dogs, as seen here.

Description says there's some German writing on the back: "Meiner Liebsten zum ewigen Andenken" (my dearest to eternal souvenirs).
