Is any one able to identify what other breeds are in my dog? Please! I got him at 2 months old and now he is just over 2 years old. When I first got him I was being told he was a Boxer Collie mix, but I didn't think he looked like it so I got his DNA tested at Wisdom Panel and the result came back he is 50% Boxer and 50% mixed. Now my question is what other breeds do you think he's got in him?

What Breed Is My Dog?

The results of the Wisdom panel has a section that shows you a detection threshold of what he might have mixed in him, but all these other dogs they showed look nothing like him. At the top of the list out of 5 they show a Greater Swiss Mountain Dog and an Old English Sheepdog as what he possibly might have in him. I mean I don't know what to make of this.

Now regardless of what breed he is I will love him just the same :) But the laws are changing around here and I need to know if he is a Pit Bull? He is build pretty thin and he is pretty tall and now weighs about 75 pounds. I can totally see he's got the body of a Boxer but when you look at him from the front he looks so different from when your looking at him from the sides.

I personally don't think he looks like a Pit Bull but some people are always asking me if he is. I don't know who I can go see to help me with my situation.

I hope I get some great feedback from here and if some one can help me I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

    You're right. The model makes no sense. It's up to individual interpretation and dumb.

      I just got this little guy yesterday and am just curious what kind of dog he is? Will he get very big? Normal questions of what I should expect. I have 2 little dogs and have never owned a big dog. I'm assuming he might get pretty big. This is just me going off of his paw size as he is barely 3 months old. Help with these answers would be very appreciated! Thank you!

        With so many people asking "What breed is my dog?" on here I thought I'd share a cute, quick answer that anyone can use, any time someone asks what breeds are in your mutt, or "what kind of dog is that?"dog howling

        We had a dog that was a Boxer Shepherd mix (at least near as we could tell). We didn't care what was in the dog, but people were always asking, so we decided when anyone would ask we would answer "Oh, she's a Standard American Browndog." You say it with a completely straight face, followed by a little smile and a wink if you wish. It lets people know that you: a)don't know and b)don't care---she's your baby and you love her as much as any pedigreed purebred.

        For different shapes, sizes, and colors of dogs you just adjust it a little. You could say "he's a Miniature Dutch Parti-Colour", or "she's a Petite Noir Pees-a-Lot", or "He's a Tri-Color Tailwagger". Just make up something and go with it.

        When you do this people get kind-of a blank look on their face for a minute, and then they (almost always) get it. It's usually a good conversation starter too.

          We recently adopted a puppy, she just turned four months old and weighs a little over 10 lbs, not much, however she is quite long. Anyways, we were told she was a Labrador mix, but we can't figure what the other dog might be. What do you guys think?

            This is my 6 month old dog and I have no idea what he is. He's a little bit bigger than a Chihuahua. He's stopped growing, but not his hair. He's got very tiny paws but a big head with pointed ears lol. He is also very vocal and obedient. If you know what he is, please let me know.

              Black dog with a white chest and huge stand up ears.My puppy is 5 1/2 months old. I rescued her from a shelter 2 months ago. I have no history on her. The vet at the shelter thought she was a mix of German Shepherd and Belgian Malinois. Her ears are huge but so cool. She is the smartest dog I have ever seen!
              Any thoughts? Thanx.

              I'm looking to breed my female Chihuahua with a purebred male Chihuahua, but I just want to know if she's purebred or a Min-Pin? Her ears are the only thing that look weird to me.

                There is absolutely no way to know. That's like you asking me to look at you and tell you exactly what your heritage is, dating back centuries. I could only guess. For dogs? Even the DNA test is not 100% concrete, and doesn't "count" officially. What you'd be doing is backyard breeding. Look it up. To find a guaranteed purebred male chihuahua, he'd have to have AKC papers from a breeder. You'd have to pay his owners a fee to rent him as a stud, and also make an arrangement with the puppies. Pick of the litter, percent profit, whatever is agreeable to them. However, they're not going to waste their time with your dog, because as beautiful as she is, she doesn't have papers. That would give them a bad reputation as backyard breeders, and there's a much smaller profit there. The reason people pay more for purebred dogs is because they are dog show winners, have traceable genetics showing no health and genetic problems, and can be shown themselves. People who just want a cute family pet will rescue. Buying your puppies is no different than going to the pound and adopting something that looks like a chihuahua. Which can be done for as low as $50. Yes, people who don't know better may pay more on Craigslist or at a petstore because they don't know better, but you don't know they're going to treat your puppies right or be kind to them, or if they're going to backyard breed them themselves. Before you do this, I'd suggest you look into exactly how many chihuahuas and chihuahua puppies are out there homeless. Check out Free the chi. The chihuahua is the 2nd most overbred dog. There are hundreds of chihuahuas, many puppies, at animal controls all over the country, many on death row because people are backyard breeding and there's too many. There are costs involved as well. Food, vet care, shots, deworming. Get educated on the topic , and see if it's still something you want to do. It's possible you'll end up with 6 adult chihuahuas.

                Miss Ella loves to run, loves to play with my little nephew and nieces, she snuggles at night with me and big (younger brother) Tink, everyone stops and chats when they see Ella as she gets so happy to meet new people and their fur babies.

                Do you have anything else to share about your pet?
                Miss Ella is the most beautiful natured little girl, considering her past. She just loves to love!

                I found my dog 4 months ago when he was 45 days old in a dumpster trash. He was in bad shape. We took him to the vet and did 2 vaccinations and tommorow he will go for the third, he is good now. The vet says he is a sheep dog mix or Foxhound. I don't know because his mother was a stray dog and she went with all the other dogs maybe. It will be great if you help find what breed he is.

                  What EVER he may be he's cute as PIE! (& he matches the tile floor, so OBVIOUSLY it's meant to be!!) He reminds me of an ol' spotted spaniel bird dog I had many years ago, with a bit of a wire haired breed thrown in for good measure- maybe Airedale? WhatVL EVER he is, he's ADORABLE!!! Have a GREAT life together!;

                  How and when did you get your pet?
                  I was asked to take him in, from yet another violent abusive home. He was 4 months old, they had burnt his face, and a lot of horrid things. He has submissive weeing from it hence his name Tinkles (aka Mister Tinkles). Lol

                  What does your pet like to do for fun?
                  Tink likes to do anything I do, he loves going in the car, swimming, and going to the park, but due to his size, 40 odd kg, he's not a big runner. He loves jumping in the shower with me. He honestly just loves life!

                  Do you have anything else to share about your pet?
                  He is the second dog I have removed from an abusive home. He has so much love for everyone, but not a fan of people in black caps! A very very trusting remarkable boy.

                    The pound had her labeled as a "Bull Terrier x" and she's definitely got the nose for it. I'd originally thought she was crossed with a Staffy, but I've never seen a Staffy nor a Bull Terrier as tall and lanky as she is.
                    What do you think? Pit Bull? Some kind of Mastiff?

                        I just got him today, but the lady that gave him to me didn't know anything about him, including his age or breed. The person before her didn't tell her any info. I was wondering if anybody knows his breed and age.

                          We got a dog and were told he is a Rotti and a Cane Corso Mix (a Mastiff breed). However I don't really see either besides the obvious markings of a Rotti. Opinions please. Thank you!
