Question: What Breed is My Dog?

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.

Question: What Breed is My Dog?

Small brown dog with large ears lying on fleece blanket.I recently adopted my dog from the animal shelter. They put him down as a Chihuahua. I had a Chihuahua when I was a little kid and it looked nothing like this one. I've gotten lots of comments from people saying he looks like a fox. At first glance, I agree he does. I know he's definitely mixed, I'm just curious as to what exactly.

Looks like a Corgie mix to me, especially the head and tail. Do an images search using the term corgie mix to look at thousands of pictures, I'm pretty sure you'll see most look like your darling dog!

Question: What Breed Is This Puppy?

brown puppy with white on muzzleMy family (3 kids - 8, 6, and 4) just adopted this puppy from a rescue that stated her mother was a Border Collie and her father was a Lab. Many, many people have asked if she is a Pit Bull. We are new dog owners and were hoping for an easy to train, gentle dog that would love, but not hurt our kids. We know that Pit Bulls can be sweet and easy going and lovable so long as you are great trainers, but we are dog owning newbies, so we are worried that we are not the right family for a dog that needs really, really good trainers. I also can't stand the critical and harsh comments so many people make about Pits, it feels stressful already! So far it seems there is some growling and play biting going on, but otherwise she is a very sweet dog. Thoughts?

I agree with the previous answer - your gorgeous pup looks like a Lab-Border Collie. That head tilt, those stunning blue eyes, the quintessential BC 'snout blaze' plus the chocolatey Lab coat colour are dead give-aways.

Ask your vet to be sure, a DNA test will tell you absolutely but is pricey - last I heard in the US a canine DNA test can run $300USD.

I raised Boxers in the US 40+years before relocating to the UK. The uninformed (read silly hysterical types looking for an excuse to moan) frequently insisted my Boxers were 'pit bulls' - no matter what your dog looks like there will always be some uninformed person trying to be a know-it-all. Don't let people upset you but rather go with your vet's advise.

For everyone's sake, if the dog makes you nervous please rehome it with a family able to take on a Border Collie-Lab mix - the growling you're hearing now whilst at play is part of the BC trait behaviour. As the dog grows expect herding behaviours too, should you choose to keep the dog. After consulting your vet to be sure of the breed mix, get some books or go online to those breeds sites to learn what to expect from your puppy as it matures - including how long the breeds take to full maturity. Boxers and many of the large breed dogs (erm, like Labs:) aren't fully mature until around three years old!

If you love the dog and are fair, patient, and conscientious, there is no need to be the next Barbara Woodhouse (Walkies! Lol:), your local recreation and leisure centre more than likely offers low cost puppy training classes.

You can also learn from breed-specific library books, YouTube videos, and first and foremost - a good canine vet.

Question: What Breed is my Dog?

4 pictures of dogI'm looking into relocating to a different state and while looking for housing I ran into an issue of breed restrictions. My dog was 8 weeks old when I got her. I was told she was a pit mix.

Now, that she is a year and a half, I kind of wonder whether she really is. She is quite small for a pit, she is only 40 pounds. I feel like she must be either an American bulldog or a boxer mix. So if I say she is a boxer/lab mix or something along those lines, would that fly by a landlord?

The state where I am considering moving doesn't have a pit bull ban, but a lot of housing complexes have breed restriction policy, which includes pits as an aggressive breed. My dog is by no means aggressive, she is really chill and mellow, and has 2 cats for her best friends. She never bit anyone, and all she ever want to do is cuddle and lick you in the face.

Please help me figure out, what breed mix she looks like. Thank you!

Females of both Boxer and American Staffordshire Terrier (aka pit bull) breeds are usually smaller; 40lbs is about right for a mix. I'm sorry to tell you that my experience as an AKC Boxer breeder (40+years before my relocation to the UK), many years of Boxer and Boxer breed rescue, and my cousin raising Staffies (aka pit bulls) tells me your beautiful dog is indeed a Boxer-Staffie mix.

And sadly, neither breed is welcomed by many rental agencies in the US. The last five years I lived in the US were in NW GA, where I had such a terrible time finding a rental that I ended up buying a small house so the one Boxer I had left could have a home with me.

Rental property managers who welcome this type of dog are hard to find. They are out there, so don't give up, but do be prepared to meet a lot of negativity.

Question: What Breed Is My Dog?

Closeup of face.I got my pup when he was about 3-4 months old. He's now almost 2 yrs old (April 30). I was told he's a "reverse blue brindle". Now my friend has his brother from the same litter and they look like 2 totally different dogs. My pup has a brown coat, beautiful light eyes, and lots of loose skin, Whereas his brother is taller and skinnier, smaller head, flawless blue tint coat, and dark brown eyes.

My pup weighs 80lbs (maybe more, he got weighed back in September was 77lbs and he loves food LoL). His brother weighs maybe 65lbs. Now the father was a beast, very large bulky dog, but mom was tiny and skinnier. Any input or comments (don't be mean) would help. Thanks bunches!

I am not a vet but we have had four G/S and your dog certainly looks like a pure bred G/S. Of course without papers no one can prove it. Our four did not have papers and looked like yours. She is also beautiful! Congratulations. You will have years of wonderful companionship with one of the smartest breeds there is. Just remember, she is a very smart human in a fur coat.

Question: What Kind of Dog is This?

Closeup of black and tan puppy.2 days ago I came across a man offering a puppy at the bus station. The puppy was smelly and its fur was rough in random places. But it was too cute to just leave it so I gave the man 100$ and took her home. I fed her and gave her a bath and tried to get a picture of her to show LOL that was soooo hard. Her tail is very short. I'm not sure at all if it was born that way, but I hope to get some opinions. Thank You Puppy on blanket.

Holy cow is that puppy cute or what? She looks like a genuine Heinz 57 to me, looks as though there is some Lab (ears and colour), some German Shepherd (paws and leg colours), maybe some Border Collie too (again maybe the ears instead of Lab, colours, head-muzzle shape, and longer hair).

Since you were able to splash out $100 to rescue her from the seller it sounds as though you can also afford a visit to the vet - the vet will be able to tell you more about what breeds are in her, plus scan her for a chip...sadly sometimes puppies and dogs offered for sale the way your was turn out to be stolen.

The vet will also check her for parasites and congenital defects - if she wasn't stolen she may have come from a 'puppy mill' or backyard breeder, and as such may have worms or other parasites, hip or heart problems, or illness.

In the pics she seems bright and alert but better safe than sorry. As part of her vet check she'll also be given age-appropriate vaccinations to protect her from the various communicable diseases (Parvo, rabies of course, distemper, etc).

That's one of the clearest examples of a Boxer-Staffie mix I've seen in a long time - and I have over 40 years experience in the US as an AKC Boxer breeder, many years of breed rescue, and a cousin who raised Staffies when I was raising Boxers.

American Staffordshire Terrier is the correct name for pit bulls - check the AKC site to confirm. Then scroll through the following pictures of Boxer-Staffie mix puppies:

http://www.google.co.uk/search?neww ... 1ac.1.36.img..13.19.1134.5EwbNF5k924

And then find out what legislation is on the books in your area against Boxers and Staffies and mixes. I write 'against' because so many US localities are legislating against 'dangerous dogs' and this is a mix that makes the 'dangerous dog' list, sadly. They are generally wonderful dogs but they do take some extra owner care and that includes awareness of any laws regulating keeping them.

If it helps any, I now live in the UK and the mix is also considered a 'dangerous dog' mix here - several laws in place and more to come. If you feel you can't cope with the challenges the mix brings to your family (very protective, highly energetic, don't fully mature until around 3yo, more) combined with the need for specialty insurance, lead-muzzle-fence laws, please contact a breed rescue in your area so that darling dog can be rehomed to a family ready and able to take up the challenge.

What Breed is my Dog?I got this dog off Kijiji classified. They said she was a boxer mixed with pit bull, and they said she was 2 months old. She looks way too small to be these breeds for two months. What do you guys think? Thank you

Best Answer

By Frugal Sunnie [11]02/03/2014

I used to raise Boxers in the US, my cousin raised Staffies (aka pit bulls). Although your dog looks like a mix of the two, you're right to question the breeding because she is very small for her age. Especially because you've pictured her next to a dog that is of a very small breed, and she looks quite small in comparison.

Best person to ask at this point is a vet. Good luck, please update when you find out for sure what she is.

What breed do I have? The people we got her from said she was a Rotweiler Boxer mix, but when she started growing her ears started sticking up and now we're thinking she is a German Shepherd dog!

Tan and white puppy with large ears, lying on the carpet.We adopted this puppy a couple of days ago. She is 16 weeks and weighs 17 pounds. What is she?

By Sheri


Best Answer

By Frugal Sunnie [11]01/23/2014

Looks like there is a lot of Boxer puppy there - the way the ears are trying to stand up and are leaning over is very much like the way the Boxer puppy ears I used to raise in the US looked if the new owner didn't want them docked.

Also, the chest, paws, and body look like Boxer pup too. Might be something else mixed in there but I'd say the majority of the gene pool there is Boxer. I also did breed rescue and have seen similar puppies like yours who turn out to be Boxer mixed with Lab or Staffordshire Terrier.

Google Image search using the term 'Boxer puppies' and 'Boxer mix puppies' will give you thousands of pictures to scroll through to see I'm probably right.

Gorgeous dog. If indeed a Boxer, expect full maturity to happen by aged three years, and weight to be 60-95lbs depending on factors you have no control over - mainly what the mix is, and what the mother's health before and during pregnancy was.

Very active dogs who are great family dogs needing a lot of exercise - yours should be trained beginning now for obedience and good public behaviour - consider always keeping yours on a lead, muzzled if 'nippy', and be sure to check your local laws to be sure your dog hasn't been labelled a dangerous dog. Sad but true, Boxers and Boxer mixes have come in on those lists.

Question: What Breed is My Dog?

White dog with black and brown patches.I adopted a Min Pin mix at the shelter, he is now 10 weeks old. People have asked me what he is mixed with, but I do not know. Neither do the people at the shelter. Their guess is Chihuahua, but a lot of people we encounter including 2 trainers said that he looks like he is mixed with either Fox terrier or Jack Russell.

The only information I can provide is that he is very, very hyper and he loves to dig. He is very small, but very spunky. He often stands on his hind feet almost as if he's begging and sometimes when he's looking at something he will put his front paw up somewhat like a pointer dog.

This is Bella. She's my Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix. A lot of people, I think, automatically think of Jack Russells when they see terriers. However, Fox & Rat terriers are very similar as well. Not only do these 3 breeds sometimes have similar markings. They also have similar dispositions. With her having the long legs, I'd rule out the Jack Russell. You're more than likely looking at a Rat or Fox Terrier mix.

Dark brown dog on carpeted stairs.What mixed breed is my dog? We adopted Hershey when he was 6 weeks old from a high kill shelter in West Virginia. He was there with his mom who was a Border Collie mix (couldn't figure out what the mix was). The shelter thought he could be a Border Collie/Shepherd mix. He has some brindle coloring in his coat, especially on the top of his head so we were thinking maybe some Pit?

He is now 3 months old and the sweetest dog in the world. He loves everything and everybody! He is also very smart. He picks up on tricks within minutes. He knows how to sit, lay down, stand, give paw, and play dead. He also knows his name and knows how to come (when he wants to).

Black and white puppy.My boyfriend got this puppy two days ago from an ad that said Golden Retriever and Australian Shepherd cross. The "breeder" showed up with the pup in one hand, anxious to get the money and leave.

The poor animal was in really bad condition. Her white fur was yellow and she smelled as if she was sitting in her pee and poo for days. We cleaned her and made her feel at home and comfortable. She's very energetic and has a great personality, but the more we look at her the less Golden Retriever she looks. She has a curly tail which is strange because Golden's tails aren't curly and neither are Australian Shepherds'. We would love your opinions! Side view of puppy's markings.

Breed looks just precious. Sounds like she came from a breeder and therefore special attention is needed to help her overcome possible health problems typical of breeder stock.

Please read my past posts on health and the natural way to pet health. Food must not have corn wheat or soy. No grocery store pet food aisle food. For one it contains the bodies of euthanized pets and the sodium phenobarbital does not cook out. Fillers used are allergens and do not promote good health.

Cooking is good. Some raw is excellent. Even fruits and veggies raw except for grapes (or raisins). They can kill. A decent very reasonable kibble is Diamond lamb and rice. No corn wheat or soy. first ingredient is lamb. Same price as Purina.

Diamond is available in specialty store and most often at the horse feed store. EVO is wonderful and so is California naturals but expensive. Build the immune system. Read my posts on anti vaccine especially. Glad you have that little sweetie. She is one lucky little one for you to save from the probable breeder.

Question: What Breed is my Dog?

Black dog with long hound like ears.We adopted our dog from a rescue shelter last summer as a puppy. The paperwork indicated she is a Lab mix. Overall she is a well behaved and good dog. However, we have had some instances of her exhibiting aggression. She has food aggression (people food), is mouthy and still a bit nippy after 1 year. Also, she is still destructive i.e., chewing. Of course we could get the DNA test, but wanted to get some input first.

Your dog's face and ears look exactly like my pure-bred dachshund's. Also, the behaviors you are describing are exactly like my dog's were in the first year after I adopted her (she was about 2 yrs old then), the food aggression, the chewing, the barking. Dachshunds are very single-minded, just like many hound breeds.

I'm glad to see so many people see Greyhound in your dog. The ears & markings are typical Ghound. If the dog is about 40 lbs. I'd say it's a Whippet which is a smaller version of the Greyhound (directly related to the Ghound.) If it's 60-80 lbs. it's a Greyhound. If it Roos (a type of howling) for sure it's a Ghound.

As far as the pit bull part I'd say it's boxer to protect your dog.
Congrats on picking a fine animal the genetic back round will cancel out some of the pit bull aggressiveness. Also, don't register your dog anywhere as part pit bull it will be discriminated against.

Question: What Breed is My Dog?

White and black medium dogI am just curious as to what breeds my dog could be. I adopted her from the humane society where she came in as a stray with puppies. They didn't have a clue. It just said "mix" on her papers.

Some people think she's Catahoula; my trainer says that he'd bet she has Mountain Dog in her. She's about 50 lbs. and 21" at the withers. Her tail falls at the hock and it has a white tip. Her paws are webbed and she has a really deep bark for her size, similar to a rottie in tone.

She's very protective of us but is fearful overall at the moment, especially in the house so it's hard to determine her temperament. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

First things first, it's not Bermese... It's Bernese. A commen mistake. However it is not a Bernese mountain dog mix at all but more likely a Appenzeller Sennenhund or greater Swiss mountain dog There are four breeds that all share the title of Sennenhund, all with the exact same tricolor features. It's simply genetically impossible for her to be a Berner and be short coated. The greater Swiss mountain dog and Appenzeller Sennenhund are much more likely since they are short coated. No amount of mixing would take away a Berbers thick coat. Defiantly not a Foxhound or Australian mix. Greater Swiss mountain dogs look just like foxhounds in the body only with traditional tri colors. Not a pure Catalouna but probably the most likely mix if at all.

The Swiss breeds are known for having blue eyes when there stripe doesn't form correctly and masks the face like yours. so I'd venture as far as to say she could be a pure bread. I've attached a photo of my own pure bread Bernese to show different.

I raised AKC Boxers in the US for over 40 years and did breed rescue as well.

I really don't think there is any pit bull (proper name is American Staffordshire Terrier, or Staffie/Staffy for short) in your dog at all - my cousin raised ASTs, and our combined breed rescue experience never showed us a cross that looks like your dog.

What I think you have is a near pure Boxer - one parent being all Boxer and the other being something like a 1/2 (or more) Boxer crossed with Mastiff or one of the other giant bull type dogs.

I say a possible cross with a parent of Boxer+one of the giant bull breeds because of the size of those forelegs - blimey that's massive in the photo you've posted! Huge, huge bones, and while Boxers are fairly large, I've NEVER seen one with bones that big that didn't involve a Mastiff or similar cross. The crossed parent had to have had a lot of Boxer in him/her to throw a puppy so true to the Boxer look with only those huge bones giving away a cross presence.

Otherwise I would say your absolutely gorgeous dog is a purebred Boxer without papers - that is just a gorgeous, gorgeous Boxer and only the massive bones give the dog away as a cross.

Please check with your vet because Boxer-Mastiff/giant breed cross dogs do have some health and behaviour characteristics issues that families need to be aware of; also do an online image search using the term - boxer-mastiff giant breed cross puppies - to see what I'm suggesting as the mix in your dog.

But please believe me there is no AST in your dog. The cross throws a completely different look. Honest - but do check with your vet to confirm that as well because many locales now legislate against Boxer-Staffie cross dogs as well as purebred Staffies. You need to know your local laws.

He looks like my dog Squirt, who also was on the street when we found him. The vet says he's a "Chiweenie" ( I swear I'm not making it up). A cross with a dachshund, hence the weenie part.

Squirt can jump high enough to take a cookie off the counter and not even leave a crumb. I swear it's true, I saw it. They are the best breed.

Question: What Breed is My Dog?

Black, tan, and white puppy.I am pretty sure she is a mix breed, but of what, I can not determine. I got her from the local humane society last week. The paper work for her said she is a Labrador, but others said they thought she is a Shepherd mix. Another person said she looks to be a Pit Bull and Lab mix. Any ideas?

Hi Trish! Your dog does look a lot like mine. You know, just in the last few weeks I actually considered Sadie to be a lab/boxer mix, because when I came home, she was so excited to see me that when she jumped up to greet me, she "boxed me" bruising both my thighs in the process. She only does this with me, not the kids. But my son, who is 6, gets hugs and kisses from her, and she curls her paws up like a boxer when she hugs him. I googled this, and there is actually a name for them "boxadors". I found lots of dogs who looked like Sadie. But I've come to the conclusion that she could be lab with anything stocky and muscular...which could be a number of breeds. We love her and she is everything we could have wanted in a pet and more. Pit, staffordshire, boxer, whatever she may be I'd love her just the same!

Oh, and she has mellowed out a LOT since I last posted. She is friendly to everyone and no longer has any aggression. But she is still on guard and protective of the house and family. I contribute this change to getting a friend. We got a second dog, who is a lab/german shepherd mix. (this time we are sure, we met the parents!) She's going to be huge and is only 5 months old and has already passed Sadie in height and weight. But they play together so much that it has completely changed her, all this extra exercise. Here's a picture of her new buddy:

Question: What Breed is My Dog?

medium dogHas anyone seen a mixed breed like this? I have been going crazy searching all over the world wide web for pictures that look like our baby Raider. He is now 5 1/2 months., born early July 2008. We adopted him from the Fremont shelter. The cutest little thing ever. He loves to play ball and fetch with his toys. He loves walks and being off the leash and is a super fast runner. So you must keep your eye on him at all times.

He also jumps really high and does this little prance kinda walk. He is very lovable, likes to cuddle with me and loves my furry blankets. After all my searching I have come to the conclusion that he is possibly Shiba Inu/Chihuahua or a Shiba Inu mix of some sort. Please reply and post answers if you have any information or if you have any pictures. Thanks.

She also has very different markings then most pits, being mostly white with light brown brindle spots, and light brown golden eyes.

Sadly, he is not 6 months. He was 2-3 months old, and the vet said he's not Great Dane. So I want to see what you guys think of look at him. Thank you.

Sometimes it's very hard to say because a breed might not be obvious. I have a husky mix and she doesn't look anything like a husky. I know for sure because her mom was a red husky and I picked her from the litter. All of the puppies looked the same as all were black and white. Not husky like at all. I asked the vet about the dad and he didn't know. He said most of the time it's very hard to tell.

Tan and white dog with black muzzle.I got my puppy off of kijiji. The ad said she was a German Shepherd/Husky mix. However, after I got her I was looking on kijiji again and found another ad that was a German Shepherd/Boxer mix and the pictures looked exactly like my puppy. It looks like she has more Boxer than Husky in her.

Like most myths about pits, this thing about lock jaws I believe is not true. They are however strong, athletic dogs, the athletes of the dog world! And like most dogs, they need good training and lots of exercise, they are also very very loyal dogs, very devoted to their owners, a trait that has made it easy for those who exploit them to train them to fight. They like to please those that they love. However, if handled well and socialized with both people and other dogs, they make wonderful pets!

He looks like a lot of lab to me, maybe some boxer thrown in. Just train him well!

I raised AKC Boxers and did breed rescue in the US 40+years before relocating to the UK. My cousin raised American Staffordshire Terriers and also did breed rescue.

We agree - your dog is the textbook illustration of a Boxer-Staffie mix, I'm gobsmacked at how she looks like a Boxer in profile and in the snap with the headscarf (how cute is she in that:), but how like a Staffie she looks from the front with her ears down against her head! The colour is pure Red, too; lol, my cousin is re-thinking his retirement after being reminded of how truly beautiful a well-loved Staffie (and Staffie mix) is.

Run an online image search to be sure - also check with your vet for confirmation, and any info you may need regarding local laws regarding keeping these dogs. Many locales now legislate against Staffies and Boxers (also a few other breeds) as dangerous dogs and you need to be aware of any legal obligations you may have.

Question: Is Jade a Purebred GSD or a Mix?

fill face viewI was recently given a 4/5 month old puppy, by my grandfather, who I named Jade. I was wondering if she was a purebred GSD or mix? She is a very beautiful dog, big ears, big muzzle, strong build yet underfed in the pictures which was the first day I got her. I was told that she looks like a purebred GSD and I do think so also. Jade and I grew on to each other quickly, she is a very friendly, yet shy dog, very smart and loyal. Jade is a very shy and timid girl, and absolutely hates being on a leash. She was the largest pup of the litter and was also picked on by the other dogs. She still socializes very well with my purebred GSD, Charlie, who she loves dearly. She is very energetic in my yard, but outside of the yard, she feels lost and scared even when I'm by her side. It's been a week or so and I hope for her to be comfortable and live a great life.

I did a DNA test on my rescue dog. It was called Wisdom Panel (cost $60 or so). It comes with two little long handled brushes to swab the inside of the dog's cheeks. The brushes are placed in a pouch and returned to the Company. Your results come back in 2 weeks via a computer download. I'm still not convinced that it was accurate. But the accompanying information on canine genetics was very interesting. I understand there is a blood test that has more accurate results. It can be helpful to know the breed when evaluating a dog's basic instinctual behavior. I was told that even professionals using only visual identification on a mixed breed are correct only 25% of the time.

closeup of Jackson sittingJackson has been with us for about 3 months now. I was told he was a Boston Terrier/Lab mix puppy. His mother was said to be a pure bred Boston Terrier and his father was a Lab mix. Recently after a visit with my father and his fiance, where she had pointed out some very uncanny resemblances to Pitbull in Jackson, I can't unsee it. I am hoping that you guys might be able to help.

Stats are as follows:
Age - 5 months
Height - 15/16 inches
Weight - 35 to 40 pounds (weighed 2 weeks ago)

He's very playful, full of energy, extremely curious when it comes to other dogs, and plays well most of the time (except when really really hyper). He is very trainable, has learned about 10 tricks so far. He was easy to puppy train. He has a shiny coat. I could go on for days about how highly I think of my dog lol.

I am really just curious if anyone else has a similar dog, and could give me a rough idea of size, or if they think my father's fiance might be right.

Run a search engine images search using the term 'boston terrier lab mix dogs' and you'll see your future step-mother is a hysterical idiot and potential future claimant against your homeowner's insurance!

Sorry to be so blunt but for one, your dog is clearly a BT-Lab (do the image search:) and for another, I've had a similar experience with a relative.

I raised AKC Boxers in the US 40+years but this woman told everyone she met I kept dangerous pit bulls, and sure enough one day an exuberant pup jumping up to greet her left a welt on her arm (where he dug in a paw).

Within an hour she'd called the police alleging a vicious attack, lol - no worries because we had CCTV on the kennels and puppy exercise yard. We ran the tape for the police and animal control and that ended the 'vicious attack' story.

I can say 'lol' but ONLY because we had the CCTV film to show the authorities. I'd be very clear with this woman about your dog, and if she continues to push her ludicrous notions, keep her away from your dog to avoid future claims!

By Jacob


Most Recent Answer

By Wendelyn11/11/2014

Well, I'd say German Shepherd is a definite, in fact it's hard to see past the GS traits. Other views of your puppies might be helpful. You should also know that a single litter of pups can have multiple fathers, each pup should be considered separately.

Of course if you can determine what dogs your female has been exposed to that will help greatly.
Although there may very well be Chow Chow in them, I learned several years ago that any dog can have spots on their tongue and though the Chow Chows are known for their solid black tongues there are approx. 27 other breeds which share that characteristic. Any dog may have spots on their tongue much like humans having freckles, in fact I have a cat with spots on her tongue. :)

A better way to identify other breeds associated with your litter would be to combine the looks as well as personality, temperament etc. I believe following these steps will lead you to the best conclusion on identification.

Having as much information as you can on your litter is invaluable for you or other potential owners should you begin adopting them out (or whatever you decide to do) since it can give the owner an idea if what to expect as far as upkeep, bonding, exercise needs, territorial behavior and especially health needs among a list of a slew of other reasons.

However; not being able to positively i.d. them isn't the end of the world. They all must have the essential basic needs met and they all need love. Good luck in your quest for information, it can be a challenge to say the least.

My pitbull, Rein, is the sweetest and most loving dog you could ever imagine. She is excellent with kids, and with babies. I would never leave her alone with either, as I wouldn't with any breed of dog. With proper training and activity, a pitbull can be the most loving, loyal, and amazing family pet. Do not let other people's misconceptions scare you away. I have people cross the street all the time to "protect themselves" from my dog when we are walking. It makes me SO sad. All she wants is to meet everyone and give them kisses.

Hmm. Fly-away ears and a gorgeous short coat and face. You might not be able to see her parentage from looking at her. It's well covered up. Each dog has a dna stamp that is "tell-tail". The shepherd in her makes her exceptionally smart. This is a given. She should go through an obedience class with ease.

Sometimes it takes time to figure out the mix by her personality, expression of her specific traits, natural instincts, how she reacts in situations and overall demeanor. Specific pure breeds exhibit very distinct traits. Water dogs, sight hounds, protection dogs, sporting dogs all have distinct personalities and traits that were bred and solidified through breeding programs. These traits usually come out over time. You might have a better idea once the girl has grown up a bit more.

At a mere 5 months old you have a pup that's like a 2 year old inquisitive child in your home. It must be so much fun. Eat, play, sleep and potty.

Tan and black small puppy.We got Rocky from a rescue two weeks ago. We were told he is a German Shepherd mix. Some speculate he is a German Shepherd/Terrier mix. If this is so how big do you think he will get?

Two weeks ago he was 7-9 weeks old and weighed 8.4 lbs. Now he is 9-11 weeks old and weighs 12 lbs. He does not have big paws so some have said maybe 30-40 lbs. For some reason this does not seem right to me? Opinions are appreciated! Thanks!

Question: What Is My Puppies' Breed?

two black puppiesMy family, including a 9 month old daughter, just adopted these puppies from a rescue that stated their mother was a Chocolate Lab and the father was unknown. We were told they are 8 weeks old, but we are thinking they are younger.

We are new dog owners and were hoping for an easy to train, gentle dog that would love, but not hurt our daughter. With us being dog owning newbies, we are just checking to ensure we are the right family for them. Being a new mom I am just being protective to make sure I educate myself with the right information for the breed to ensure proper training.

We will keep them no matter what the breed, but it would be helpful to know for training purposes. So far it seems there is some growling, a little barking and play biting going on, but otherwise they are very sweet dogs and are whining because we believe they were taken from their mother too soon. Thoughts?

After 40+years raising AKC Boxers and doing breed rescue, I have to say your puppies look as though they are Boxer-Lab cross. Do an online image search to see photos and I think you'll see what I mean, then check with your vet who will likely confirm the mix.

In fact, looking at the photo you've posted, I'm 99.9% sure these little loves are Boxer-Labs, and that they are over 10 weeks old in the photo. Erm, Boxer puppies? They whine a lot - they really do think they should be in your arms (preferably with a bottle planted in their mouths, lol!) until around 6 months! Try a hot water bottle in a terry wrap at night to keep them somewhat quieter; the play-fighting will continue for the rest of their lives so watch they don't accidentally take that too far.

Both are large working breed dogs with Labs of course being the larger, and as such mature at a slower rate than most dogs - Boxers (full or mix) don't fully mature until around aged three years so expect 'puppy' behaviours like chewing and whining until then. As above, my primary experience is with Boxers and I'm a lot biased towards the wonderful breed:)

But I do have some understanding of the Boxer-Lab cross, and they are rarely if ever a 'problem' in a proper home. Both breeds are known also for their superior intelligence and that includes a reputation for being able to evaluate quickly to distinguish what is or isn't a dangerous situation, for example. So they make excellent guide/guard/military/police dogs - in fact as you probably know the Lab is still used today for guide dog work. The only reason the Boxer is no longer routinely used for 'official' work is the shorter average lifespan of 7-9 years - in a cross the average lifespan bumps up closer to the Lab's.

That reputation for outstanding intelligence breeds true for the cross dogs too, so you'll want to keep them well exercised, feeling as they 'have a job' (guarding the house and family, keeping pests out of the garden, etc). A consequence of such high intelligence is a keen sense of 'fair' - Boxers especially will sulk if they feel they are being treated unfairly.

Females generally reach a height of 20-25" at the shoulders with males coming in about 3-5" taller; both genders in this cross tend to weigh 35-60lbs with the females being lighter. Generally speaking, that is. You may find you have smaller dogs or your dogs may be on the larger side, it depends on so many factors pre-postnatal that only a vet should be relied on for more info.

Both breeds are known to be very good family and companion dogs IF trained properly and raised in a gentle well organised home.

There are so many good books, Internet resources, and local low-cost (your Parks and Recreation/Leisure Services) training resources out there now that I'll stop now after reassuring you that having these dogs in your home shouldn't be anything but happy! Congratulations on choosing such a fantastic cross to become part of your family - you won't regret the decision:)

black puppy with tan feet We just got our new little puppy and she was sold to us as a "Shorkie". The seller did not have the parents on site.

I have a funny feeling she was not being truthful, because I found the puppy on puppy find and she has been selling dogs on there for 2 years. She does look like a Yorkie mix, but I do not see Shih-tzu at all. We took her to get washed today and the groomer agreed that the pup does not look like a Shorkie. What do you think she is mixed with?

By Lisa M


Most Recent Answer

By Abigail A. [8]02/21/2015

This is a "puppy mill" dog.

It could really be any combination of genetics at all. It does look like there is some Yorkie in there.

I hope you took the dog to the vet for a checkup right away. Puppy mill dogs are subject to all sorts of illnesses, including parasites and Parvo. They may also have genetic problems due to being inbred, or problems that develop later in life due to the poor nutrition that puppy mill dogs receive as infants. Puppy mill dog mothers are often fed the cheapest food possible and the puppies are malnourished because the mother can't produce enough milk.

In the future, be more vigilant about purchasing a dog. Not only should you see both parents, you should see the home environment that the puppy was raised in and other puppies or dogs that are there. If excuses are given for why you can't see all these things, just assume you are dealing with a disreputable breeder.

By Frugal Sunnie [11]02/14/2015

What a darling! Yes, definitely Boxer and it looks to my experienced eye there is a shepherd in the gene pool as well.

I say experienced eye because before relocating permanently to the UK, I raised AKC Boxers in the US and also did a lot of breed rescue. Use a search engine term like 'boxer shepherd mix puppies' to find images - you'll see what I mean:)

The Boxer looks dominant in your puppy - be sure to read up on the breed traits (which include chewing) so that you understand the important characteristics - one being Boxers don't fully mature until around aged 3 years. Not sure what especial shepherd characteristics you'll need to know about, but I do know Boxers and shepherds are working breeds and do best if they feel they have an assigned 'job', and get plenty of exercise.

I kept all of my companion Boxers inside with me and they were convinced their 'job' was to guard my children and/or me. As this is not an especially aggressive breed, they were wonderful guard dogs without being too scary unless someone 'picked on' my youngsters or me, and then yes, my Boxers were definitely scary:)

Female Boxers do sexually mature at around 6 months but if bred too young they do have a tendency to suffer from urinary tract infections, uterine prolapse, and a few more problems - as she's a mix you'll be best advised to have her spayed at between 6-12 months old to prevent those problems. Probably the same for shepherds as well, so best to consult your vet once you narrow down the type shepherd your little love is mixed with.

Question: What Breed Is My Dog?

white and brown dogI am going to adopt this little lady and I'm just curious what her breed is so I can care for her properly. She has the body and size of a Chihuahua, but her face is like a Boxer.

She's very calm and relaxed, no barking and jumping around and she prefers to be independent while she walks slowly around the room. She's not aggressive at all and she was taken to the Humane Society as a stray so she's extremely nervous, but not the type of nervous that makes her bark or snap at you, she just retreats and gets very scared.

I really hope I can give her the love she deserves so I'm researching all I can to become the best pet parent I can be. I have never liked pets, but she's different; she's special and she touched my heart. I have to do everything perfectly before she arrives and one of those things is to know who she is as much as possible.

I've been there-gone through that and like Abigail says, she IS a GS in the eyes of your potential landlord. You very likely are not going to get that apartment because no matter how senior your dog, complexes with 'dangerous dog' rules will NOT bend.

I raised AKC Boxers in the US. After a divorce and selling of the family home I tried for months to find a place in AL and NW GA that would take me and my last Boxer - a then 11 year old neutered male with impeccable papers and police testaments to his outstanding social manners. I finally ended up buying a small trailer on a private lot to have a home for the two of us because I couldn't get ANY landlord able to waive the rules.

Most complexes are corporate owned and operated - they WILL NOT bend those rules so as to keep their liability insurance premiums as low as possible.

My adult children and their families still live in the US and they tell me nothing has changed since I left the US for the UK in 2010 - in fact, dangerous dog legislation has only increased in the last five years.

Sorry, wish I could have said something more cheery but the plain fact is you're not going to find any complex willing to bend or break the rules regarding 'dangerous dogs'. Best of luck - you'll have a worrying time but eventually you will find a home for you and your dog, hang in there!

That's a full-on Staffie (the nickname for the correct name for what many people mistakenly call pit bulls - American Staffordshire Terriers). Mum may well have been a Red Nose, but with that body (especially the quintessential Staffie chest, forepaw-shoulder combination, and the brindle colouring that often comes up when two Staffies of different types are bred), Dad was likely a black or brindle Staffie.

Gorgeous dog - as his human you need to be clear and compliant with any local laws regarding the keeping of what many locales are now (wrongly in my opinion) automatically labelling as dangerous dogs. You may have to have specialty insurance, high stout fencing, and keep your dog leashed and muzzled in public and/or around vulnerable people - children under 16, the physically or mentally challenged, and elderly.

Your vet will know the laws in your area, and as a bonus will help you have a healthy, well integrated family dog who serves as a goodwill ambassador for the breed.

The best thing to do is take your adorable puppy to a vet and get him/her to put it on paper that your puppy is an unregistered (AKC) Boxer.

I raised AKC Boxers in the US for over 40 years, my cousin raised Staffies (American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffie is the correct nickname for the breed commonly called pit bull) - please take your pup to the vet for confirmation but I can 99.9% promise you your dog is at least 3/4 Boxer if not 100%. Without seeing a profile photo of the puppy standing up I can't say for certain that it's 100% Boxer but your vet will be able to do so.

One of the reasons I don't believe your puppy is in any way part Staffie is the shape of the head. Do a search engine images run using the search term 'staffie puppy head shape' and you'll immediately see what I mean.

It is very important that you get something in writing from your vet - as you know now, many locales legislate against Staffies, and a number of them have begun using the term 'Pit Bull like' so they can keep any dog that bears even the slightest resemblance to a Staffie out of the area. Boxers bear a superficial resemblance to Staffies (to the uneducated eye) and worse, many locales are now lumping Boxers in with other 'Dangerous Breed' dogs. Dobermans, German Shepherds, and Rottweilers are also being labelled as dangerous, so be sure your area permits Boxers - and that you know and follow any laws regarding keeping a dog that could be considered one of the dangerous breeds. Some areas permit certain breeds but have very strict laws regarding fencing, leashes, and insurance.

I can't tell you how many times I had to tell people my Boxers were NOT 'pit bulls'. Sigh.

The only way you can be sure if any Breed is pure-bred is by the person you are buying the Dog from gives you a Pedigree that is mandatory for any Licensed Register breeder to give you with purchase price of the animal. You simply don't buy these animals for $250. Check with any licensed registered breeder or your veterinarian.

I raised AKC Boxers in the US for over 40 years, also did breed rescue which included Boxer mix dogs; my cousin raised Staffies. I can assure you, there is no American Staffordshire Terrier, better known as 'Staffie' (the correct name for 'pit bull' dogs) in your gorgeous dog:)

People often asked me if my dogs were 'pit bulls' then tried to argue it with me when I said 'No, pure (or mixed if the dog was) Boxer' and I frankly became very tired of it.

After my divorce and subsequent move to a new state the manager of the apartment complex I'd rented online from told me I had 30 days to get rid of 'that dangerous pit bull!' and refused to listen to me or the vet. A DNA test was done and of course he was a purebred Boxer (which I and the AKC already knew) but she was convinced he was a pit bull. I took her to court to get my rents and deposits back (I won), but I ended up having to buy a house to get a home for the dog and myself because so many apartment complex managers refused to believe me, the AKC, the vet, and the DNA tests. Sheesh!

The DNA test isn't wrong. If your dog had Staffie genes, the DNA test would have come back with that result. What you need to do now is read up on the breeds the DNA test results say are in your dog, and re the Boxer part - it takes up to three years for a Boxer or Boxer Mix to fully mature. Don't be surprised by puppy behaviours well into the third year.

All the breeds in your dog are wonderful family and companion dogs, congratulations on opening your heart and home to a dog who will love you unconditionally, be exceptionally intelligent, and er, well, rather active well into the tenth year. Well cared for, those breeds generally have a life span reaching 12-17 years, as a mixed breed you can expect to have your new family member around and healthy at the outer reaches of the three breeds.

Mixed breed dogs usually have all of the best traits with few if any of the congenital and behavioural problems so rampant in overbred popular breeds.

Question: What Breed Can My New Puppy Be?

Speckled brown and white puppy.I just adopted a puppy from the humane society. They told me she was 11 weeks old and a hound mix. Her coat is so unique, at least to me because I haven't ever seen a dog with a coat quite like hers. My fiancé and I have passed around the idea that she may be mixed with two different kinds of hounds possibly. She does not do other dogs at all. She is this tiny puppy, but would want to rip the head off a much bigger dog. We have had her about 3 days and she is already pretty protective over our whole family, also, on walks she won't continue walking unless we were all walking in front of or beside her.

She is small puppy still. Her coat, is white all over, but on her nose she has black tiny spots, and on her cheeks and through out her whole body and legs there are tiny tan, almost a creame color, spots all over. Her right eye is covered by one giant brown spot. I would love to see what other opinions anyone else has.

I was an AKC Boxer breeder in the US for over 40 years and I did a lot of breed rescue in the last five years I was in the States - your dog doesn't look as though it has ANY Boxer in it at all. The brindle colouring probably is why they thought the dog is part Boxer but actually brindles don't happen very often with Boxers.

Your dog has very short legs, also not a Boxer trait. Might have some Terrier mixed with one of the hound breeds that throw brindle colours, and the face and ears look Beagle to me; best way to be sure though is to ask a canine vet.

Unusual looking dog, very striking! It really would be a good idea to find out what is in that dog so that you know what to expect temperament and behaviour wise.

Husky and Lab, maybe. The vet should have a better idea.

But really, Labs have a similar bulge to their faces.

Most Recent Answer

Looks like Boxer is the other breed in your Staffie, and what a gorgeous little pup - those blue eyes are knock-out against the beautiful coat!

Depending on where you live, you may run into some local legislation around keeping this cross (Boxer-Staffie) as many areas in the US and UK (where I now live after 40+years in AKC Boxer raising and breed rescue) now consider Boxers, Staffies, and the cross as 'dangerous dogs'.

Work with your vet and local authorities to be clear on your legal obligations (if any), use local Leisure Services dog training classes, and library/Internet resources to learn how to create a home perfect for having one of these wonderful dogs in your life. It's very helpful to know both breed's characteristics so you understand why your cross is 'doing that'.

Both breeds are 'working' dogs and do best when they feel they have an assigned role. I assigned mine the job of henhouse and child guarding, and they were conscientious about their duties. But both breeds are super intelligent, so my children were able to have friends over safely. After the children became adults, my Boxers (and the occasional crosses I rescued and kept) were great companions who 'guarded' the house, and me - no-one ever bothered me during the twice daily dog walks!

That said, Boxer-Staffies are generally outstanding family dogs but also make great couples and singles companion animals too. The most important things to remember: Boxers and Staffies need A LOT of daily attention and physical exercise, and they mature (mentally) much later than most dogs, usually around aged three years - expect 'puppy behaviours' like chewing, whining, play fighting, etc, to go on long after the usual 12-18 months.

Females tend to have reproductive health issues (prolapsed uterus, urinary tract difficulties - even if she never has a litter) and males (particularly Boxers) tend to have one testicle fail to descend leaving them prone to cancer. Best and kindest to know these dogs sexually mature at 6-8 months old and most vets recommend early spay-neuter to prevent these health issues.

More and more 'back-yard breeders' are creating this specific cross and aren't as careful with the genetics as they should be, so breeding shouldn't be something you consider for your puppy's future anyway.

40+years experience as an AKC Boxer breeder, and doing breed rescue work tells me your puppy is a young Boxer-German Shepherd mix. No Dane or other Hound that I can see, but there is something about the forepaws that reminds me of Dachshund for some reason - it may be the angle (or possibly an injury before she was rescued that causes her forepaws, especially the right one, to look so different) because the rest of her looks Boxer-GSD and nothing else. She's got a lovely little face, looks intelligent and alert:)

Check with your vet, and do online image searches using all the breeds to see photos of what the breeds look like crossed.

I'd go with Boxer-Lab, with the Lab mixed with Golden Retriever to explain the wavy coat. I did breed rescue and AKC Boxer breeding 40+ years in the US before relocating to my parents native UK, and that's what I'm seeing in your dog.

I can understand why the vet thinks there might be some 'pit' (proper name is American Staffordshire Terrier) because when Boxers and Labs crossed with Goldens have a litter, the puppies do tend to have something of a bull terrier look to the head especially around the eyes - like yours does.

But the 'wavy coat' is a dead giveaway for her NOT having any Staffie in her - Staffies don't have wavy coats anywhere in their gene pool, end of. Neither do Boxers, btw, but if she's a Boxer crossed with a Lab with Golden Retriever in them, the wavy coat does show up the way it has with your little love.

Too, tbh you don't want to even suggest or consider her as a Boxer-Staffie as so many locales both here in the UK and the US now legislate against these crosses as being 'dangerous dogs.

I'm confident she's a Boxer-Lab based on years of seeing hundreds of these cross types, and I'd make the effort to encourage the vet to see her as that cross as well to avoid the above mentioned 'dangerous dogs' laws in your area.

Enjoy your new companion, she's lovely!

Actually I think your dog does have a lot of American Staffordshire Terrier in him (proper name for pit bull, although I understand the AKC has or is about to recognise an official American Pit Bull Terrier, they're not at all different from ASTs from what my cousin - a breeder with over 40 years experience - tells me).

I raised AKC Boxers and did breed rescue - your dog doesn't look like a Boxer-Staffie cross to me, but does look like many of the Staffie-Hounds my cousin rescued.

Check with your vet to get an idea of which Hound breed your Staffie is crossed with, and if there are any laws in force regarding how/if Staffies and Staffie crosses are legislated in your area. Many locales have begun labelling these dogs as dangerous breeds and have either banned them outright or put several laws in place regarding insurance, fencing, lead+muzzle in public or around the vulnerable (children, elderly, physically or mentally challenged, etc).

What a beautiful girl, what looks like excellent Boxer bloodlines are very evident in her. I don't think there's any Great Dane in her, but run an online image search using the two breeds as your search term to see several pages of images of puppies from a cross breeding.

Tbh, from the angle of the photo and 40+years as an AKC Boxer breed combined with doing almost as many years breed rescue I think if there's a cross in her gene pool, it's with a Bloodhound. She looks like a perfect 50-50 mix but could be as much as 3/4 Boxer and 1/4 Bloodhound if one or both parents have Bloodhound a few generations back - this does happen with un-papered Boxers (see below about hunters trying to create 'the perfect hunting dog').

There is something around her eyes and jowls strongly suggesting the cross is a very well bred Bloodhound. Use the search term - boxer-bloodhound cross puppies - for an online image search and I believe you'll see what I mean.

If both parents were as well bred as I think your puppy's parents were, the resulting puppies will be quite large (sometimes causing difficult deliveries that end with Mum not making it through the births) and look very like your dog does.

It could just be the angle the photo was taken from, though, but if the Boxer-Bloodhound image search turns up images of puppies you feel look like your dog, check with your vet to confirm, and then try to find out everything you can about both breeds so you know what to expect as she grows up.

It happens, accidentally and on purpose. I did see several Boxer-Bloodhounds over the years I was doing rescue in the US South as both breeds are popular in that part of the US, and the dream of any hunter is to come up with the next spectacular breed. Crosses with these two breeds throw as really handsome dogs, stunners, really - fairly big with bigger bones, and a lot of the Bloodhound personality in combination with the Boxer playfulness and love of family (and being on the sofa in your lap:).

Bloodhounds - what little I know of them, tend to be big and mature completely earlier than a Boxer does - Boxers, especially females, tend to be smaller, sexually mature by around 8 months (so have her spayed to avoid the Boxer female tendency to uterus prolapse and some other breed specific health concerns) but not mentally mature until around aged three years - expect puppy behaviours from this cross, then, until at least two years if not longer, it all depends on which breed will be dominant in her maturation and personality traits.

Both breeds are working dogs, Boxers usually as guard and other 'official' type work (sniffer, police, guide, although not as often as in the past owing to the shorter 7-9 year average lifespan), and Bloodhounds as hunter and tracker dogs - they make wonderful rescue dogs, for example.

To make your's and your dog's home-life easier you'll need to work your Boxer-Bloodhound in play, for example 'tracking/hunting' a special toy or even another member of the family - your local Leisure Services probably has a number of different course you and your dog can take to learn ways to 'work' so you have ways to satisfy your dog's breed specific needs and thereby avoid a frustrated dog who thinks eating a sofa or door is the way to let you know she's bored. I learned this one the hard way back when I first started raising Boxers:)

Your local library and bookstore, the Internet, and especially your vet are all great breed-specific info and training resources. Too, there may be a Bloodhound cross group in your area who meet regularly for group training - if your vet agrees this gorgeous puppy in your life is indeed a Boxer-Bloodhound, the group could be a real help in keeping your dog happy and healthy.

I hope you'll update when you determine if she is a cross with a Bloodhound, and how you're getting on. She's a really lovely looking dog!

Hiya from Scotland, Eric! I relocated here to my parents native UK after retiring from 40+years of raising AKC Boxers and doing breed rescue work; my cousin raised American Staffordshire Terriers.

Your puppy looks like a Boxer-Staffie cross in the photo you've posted - hard to tell for sure but it looks as though the Staffie was a Brindle for the coat to throw in the brindle and black colouration.

His snout/muzzle is a little narrow so there might be something else in there - possible one of the narrow snouted hound breeds. His head and what I can see of his body says Boxer to me (ASTs have an inverted V from 'eyebrows' to top of the characteristic flat head and yours doesn't have that; in a Boxer-Staffie cross the 'top-knotted' Boxer head usually throws dominant - just like your little guy's head is showing).

Do an online image search using the two breeds as your search term and I'm pretty sure you'll see what I mean. Then check with your vet to be certain, and be sure to find out if your area bans these dogs (and crosses) outright, or if there are laws regarding fencing, insurance, leads and muzzles in public or around 'vulnerable' people like children and elderly, etc.

Use the 'Net, your local library, bookstore, and Leisure Services (for obedience and behaviour training) to ensure you understand your dog's needs - both breeds have characteristics and health issues you'll need to keep an eye on. In a proper (gentle yet firm, loving, happy) home, these dogs are fab companions and you should have years of happy life together.

If you decide this is all too much for you, please be sure to find a quality breed rescue group to rehome this little guy to a home able to provide the kind of life a Boxer-Staffie needs.

Females of both breeds tend to be smaller on average - and your darling looks like a beautiful Boxer-(Yellow) Lab to my 40+years experienced eye:) I raised AKC Boxers and did breed rescue in the US before relocating permanently to my parents native UK. In breed rescue I saw quite a few Boxer-Lab crosses that look like yours.

She probably won't weigh more than 40lbs at full growth (usually around 2 years old, with full mental maturity coming in at around 3yo; sexual maturity at around 8 months so have her spayed as soon as your vet recommends to avoid breed specific reproductive problems - Boxer females can suffer prolapsed uterus, urinary tract difficulties, etc).

Be sure you know both breed characteristics to ensure a happy home for all of you. Both are 'working dog' breeds and so expect to have some sort of work to do, and both need plenty of mental stimulation and physical exercise to keep them mentally and physically healthy.

Boxers especially have a strong sense of 'fair' and while it can be somewhat amusing to notice the way they clearly sulk and pout if thwarted or believe themselves to have been treated unfairly, it won't be so cute when they eat the sofa in anger and frustration - I learned that the hard way during my first years raising companion Boxers!

Otherwise these crosses are absolutely the best family dogs ever! My husband and I travel too much to have dogs (we have a Siamese-Abbysinian cross cat now who loves to travel with us as long as his large crate comes too:) but if we were to have a dog join the family, the Boxer-Lab cross is the one we'd actively seek out.

Do an online image search using the following search terms:

boxer-shar pei puppies
american staffordshire terrier-shar pei puppies

The photo you've posted doesn't show enough of the dog for me to tell for sure which cross you have, but your dog has Boxer or Staffie feet, a Staffie muzzle with a Shar head, a Shar shoulder area...

My cousin raised Staffies in the US, I raised AKC Boxers and we both did breed rescue - your dog does look like the Shar Pei crosses with Staffie and Boxers we saw on a surprisingly frequent basis, but again, it's hard to tell from the photo you've posted.

If your image searches confirm my thinking, check with your vet for a final confirmation (he/she will usually be able to tell just by looking), then be sure you know the local laws in your area to ensure your particular cross hasn't got several laws surrounding the keeping of.

For example, many areas both back in the US and here in the UK where I now live have 'Dangerous Dog' laws, outright bans on some breeds and cross dogs, and laws regarding leads and muzzles in public or around the vulnerable (children, 'challenged', elderly), fencing, insurance, more.

Too, Shar Pei crosses have some health and behaviour characteristics issues you and the vet need to keep an eye out for - just for starters, Shars tend to have inward curling eyelashes, Boxer males tend to have cancers if one or both testicles don't descend. Both breeds tend to have reproductive issues as well, and it's a very good idea to have him neutered sooner rather than later to prevent those trouble cropping up. Again, your vet will advise.

All three breeds tend to be of superior intellect and so need plenty of mental and physical exercise and lots of patience (these large breed dogs don't mature until around aged three and so will show puppy behaviours long after reaching full size and sexual maturity).

Otherwise they make outstanding family dogs - be sure you understand and meet their needs and breed traits, and you'll all have a wonderful life together!

I'm giggling about her being even part GSD - the closest she comes to that is maybe there was a GSD in the kennel next to her before you made her part of your family, lol!

Consult your vet, and do an online image search for - Boxer-Staffie mix - and I think the vet and the photos will confirm my thinking.

Gorgeous dog but yes, a lot of people who see her will insist she's a Pit Bull - so once the vet and photos confirm this is a Boxer-Staffie be sure to politely correct those who do to avoid potential problems (hysterical neighbours, etc).

Be sure you're up-to-date on your local laws regarding Boxer-Staffie mix dogs as some locales do regard them as 'Dangerous Breed' dogs and have a number of laws regarding how they're kept.

I raised AKC Boxers in the US for over 40 years before relocating to my parents native UK, I also did breed rescue - that experience says your puppy is more than likely a Boxer-Lab mix with no Border Collie anywhere in the mix.

Check with your vet and do an online image search using the term - Boxer-Lab puppies - and I'm pretty sure you'll see what I mean.

Great family dogs, so no worries there and the 'Net, your local library/bookstore have plenty of training-breed characteristics-raising a well adjusted dog info. Additionally (and I highly recommend this) your local Leisure Services/Parks and Recreation Services will usually be a great place to find low-cost companion and obedience training classes.

If I may say a word of warning - your dog has an exceptionally intelligent look in her eyes which is why I so strongly recommend the training programmes. She looks like a serious thinker and you may find the Boxer keenly honed sense of fair play especially strong in her. In other words, if she feels 'hard done by' she may let you know she's not happy by eating your sofa (I learned that one the hard way early on in my experiences raising these wonderful dogs) or something equally inappropriate.

Between the Boxer and Lab breeds, these are highly sensitive and intelligent dogs and I can't think of a better dog, really. But do study up on the breed characteristics, and do get the training going as soon as possible. She has such a great face, I wish the two of you many long and happy years together!

40+years experience raising AKC Boxers and doing breed rescue (including mix-cross) in the US before permanent relocation to the UK, and my cousin's 30+years with American Staffordshire Terriers (aka pit bull) tells me you have a really adorable Boxer-Staffie there crossed with something else - very likely Weimaraner.

Do an online image search using all three breeds for your search term - boxer-staffie-weimaraner dogs - would be a good search term. Also run a search on - boxer-staffie - and boxer-weimaraner - to get a really good idea of all the different throws with these combinations.

I wouldn't discount the dog's creation legend altogether, though - believe me this happens more often than many breeders will be honest enough to admit. We're careful at shows, but, well, stuff happens especially if an inexperienced breeder brings an in-season female to a show.

The only thing making the legend hard to believe is that there does appear to be three breeds in your dog's gene pool, and that very-very-very rarely happens at a show! In fact, it shouldn't happen at all at an AKC event...

Two, yes, because the sire and dam are presumably purebreds back through all generations - if this breeding result truly happened at an AKC show, the Boxer or the Weimaraner were not real purebreds because there is very clearly Staffie in your dog. Someone presented false papers because a mix would never be permitted to be shown at an AKC event and believe me, the show officials are scrupulous about checking pedigrees!

Thank-you for a nice afternoon tea-break giggle at the sitting dog - that's a quintessential happy Boxer trait so clearly you're doing it right. A Boxer (or Boxer mix) just doesn't feel safe sitting like that unless very happy in his/her home. Well done you!

Definitely Boxer and I'm pretty sure about the Lab - but it could be one of the other large breeds, possibly (but not likely) Rottie. Do an online image search using the terms - boxer-lab puppies - and - boxer-rottie puppies - to get an idea of what the two combinations can throw as.

I raised AKC Boxers and did breed rescue for over 40 years in the US before relocating to my parents native UK; something about the shape of your (gorgeous, I imagine his personality is wonderful!) puppy's head suggest something other than Lab.

For some reason Boxer-Labs tend to have a less broad head and snout/muzzle and the only other breed I can think of that results in the shape of your dog's head is Rottie. I'm probably wrong but it's worth doing the image search to feel more sure.

Check with your vet - he/she will probably be able to determine likely mix.

mostly white dog with black markings on faceI have absolutely no idea what my sweet boy is. No one can even venture a guess. I got him off a man that didn't want him and knew nothing about dogs. He has giant floppy ears, his tail curls over his back, but he's lean, not round. The black around his eyes has brown and he has black and brown spots everywhere. I don't know where the coloring came from. Please someone tell me.

standing near toyWe got Gemma from a friend who found her on the side of the road the first of December. The vet thought she was about 8 weeks old and weighed 2.2 lbs. We thought she was a Chihuahua, but now are rethinking that. Maybe Chi and Min Pin mix? She walks like a Min Pin, runs like one as well. She runs faster than any dog I have ever seen, lol. She loves to burrow, plays like a cat, pounces like a cat, and thinks she is queen of the house. She sounds like a gremlin when she is playing and had no issue trying to put my 100 lb dog in his place. She shakes when she is scared, and she gets scared if there is change. I suppose being left on the side of the road at a month old traumatized her. From December to February she has gained a little more than a pound, weighing 3.3 lbs. closeup standing laying on dog bed

I raised AKC Boxers 40+years in the US before permanently relocating to the UK in 2010; my cousin raised American Staffordshire Terriers (often mistakenly called 'pit bull'), and we both did extensive breed rescue - your dog is NOT a Beagle-Boxer but instead is a Beagle-Staffie. In a Boxer and almost any other breed cross dog, the Boxer head is dominant and characterised by a distinct 'top-knot' pointy skull cap. Your dog doesn't have that.

I say this with complete confidence but do check with your vet, and run online image searches using both Boxer and Staffie as the second part of the cross - the images you see will confirm I'm correct, as will your vet.

The Staffie head is 99.9% of the time dominant in a mix, the only exception is in a Boxer-Staffie cross as the Boxer head for some reason throws dominant. But in nearly all Staffie and other cross mixes, the Staffie head throws dominant, and that characteristic V or deep furrowed head (skull cap) is clearly present on your dog.

But continue calling the dog a Beagle-Boxer when asked by a member of the general public. If someone with Staffie knowledge challenges you (owing to the characteristic deep furrowed skull), tell them you prefer to say Boxer because people panic when they hear 'Staffie'.

That person will usually smile and agree, very rarely you'll run into someone who wants you to call your dog a Staffie in an effort to show the world Staffies have an unearned bad reputation - your call as to how you feel but to be honest, calling your dog a Staffie is going to possibly encourage the hysterical to try to have your dog 'legislated'.

For example, many US and UK locales now have some very strong laws on the books regarding Staffies (and Boxer-Staffie crosses) including fencing, restrictions on the people the dog can be around, requirements of special insurance and certified training, more.

Work with your vet - if there are local laws with which you must comply the vet will let you know. Otherwise, I'd continue calling the dog a Beagle-Boxer to keep things simple. But understand Staffie traits (different to Boxers) so that you know what to look for and need to understand about your dog. Your vet, the local library (and book store), and the Internet are all good sources of information about the proper care and safe handling of a Staffie and Staffie crosses.

Hi Betty! I raised AKC Boxers in the US 40+years before relocating to the UK in 2010. My advise is to contact the CKC to validate those papers - unless Boxer standards in Canada have changed, those legs look a touch short to be full-on Boxer. Also his colours are not right - I've NEVER seen a full-blooded pedigree Boxer with those colours anywhere on the planet. He looks as though there might be some Cocker in the way-back (3+generations - just a guess, a vet would give a better idea) gene pool.

His head and other parts conform, though, so he may just be a runt with a throw back colouration. Best to check with your vet for both breed and potential breed-specific health troubles.

To be clear, you're not going to want to use him for breeding because he's just not a top-quality specimen in appearance. That doesn't mean he won't be the best family companion you've ever shared your life with! Just be sure to have him neutered soon after he ages to past six months, and be sure to start his socialisation-obediance training now. He's a darling puppy and should have all or nearly all the traits that make Boxers such wonderful family companion dogs.

I raised AKC Boxers in the US 40+years, my cousin raised American Staffordshire Terriers, and we both did breed rescue - I've never seen a better example of a Boxer-Staffie cross in all my years of breed rescue.

Talk to your vet, and do an image search online using the two breed names and the word 'mix' or 'cross' and you'll see what I mean.

Be sure to study up on the two breed characteristics to ensure a long and happy life together. These dogs expect to work for their living, and if raised properly (including a dedicated training session at least three times a week in the back garden), make outstanding family dogs.

However! You need to work with your vet and local authorities as the two breeds, and mix-crosses of the two, have been designated 'dangerous dogs' in many US (and here in the UK where I now live).

There may be laws in your area regarding fencing, lead-leash-muzzle laws when in public or around 'vulnerable' people like children under 16, the elderly and the infirm. You may be required to have specialised insurance, certificates proving the dog has been through behaviour and obedience training, and you may have a number of other restrictions you need to be aware of.

If you decide this is not something you're able to provide I beg you to contact a rehoming-rescue group (Internet or your vet's office) to turn the dog over so a proper home can be found.

I don't believe there is any Pit (proper name is American Staffordshire Terrier, btw:) in your dog and I'm not so sure about the Rottie part, either!

I raised AKC Boxers in the US 40+years and did breed rescue; my cousin raised Staffies - I see Boxer in your beautiful puppy, but no Staffie or Rottie (Staffie/Boxer-Rottie crosses were frequent rescues, unfortunately).

Check with a good canine vet (yes, they do specialise) and I think he/she will agree there is Boxer in that gene pool. As for the rest, the snaps and info you've posted aren't sufficient to make a guess - from the colouring your pup could be part Corgie or Collie but without a profile shot of the dog standing it's very hard to say. The vet will be able to give you a better idea as he/she will see the dog in person and so will know height-weight-conformation=breed(s).

Cute as a button puppy, and such an intelligent expression:)

She does look as though she has American Staffordshire Terrier (proper name for pit bull, also called Staffie) in her (inverted V furrow in head, wedge shape to face) but she also looks as though she's part Boxer (snout and muzzle, more narrow chest-shoulders-upper forepaws, colour especially, never seen a Staffie with that colour without there being Boxer in the mix).

Do an image search using the term 'fawn staffie-boxer mix' and you'll see what I mean. I raised AKC Boxers for over 40 years in the US before relocating permanently to the UK, my cousin raised Staffies, and we both did breed rescue - your dog looks like many of the Boxer-Staffie mix rescues we rehomed.

She's darling - but there is no Boxer in her that my 40+years experience in AKC Boxer and breed rescue can see.

With that adorable face, coat, and your mention of the small feet, have you considered she might be mixed with Pomeranian? If one parent is GS/Alsatian and the other Pommie, the resulting pups would look something like your dog - try an image search using the two breeds and the word 'mix' or 'cross'.

What does your vet say? He/she will have a much more informed opinion after seeing her in person.

My heart dropped when I saw your dogs picture! I had a Collie/Chow mixed dog & he looked just like yours. The Chow half is rather tough to deal with but if you demonstrate that you're the Alpha dog you will have one of the best animals you could find.

Always let your dog have a "safe spot" to run to when you get mad at him. If your dog starts snarling & bares it's teeth at you (Chow side of him) scold him & send him to his safe spot. Remember he's part Collie which is a herding dog and you need to address that part as well. Play games that simulate a form of "herding". I use to chase mine around the dinning room table - he loved that.

I miss my Toby dog he acted more like a husband than my real one did. He was very smart. Rest in peace Toby.

Julie-Ann, bless you for saving them:)

I raised AKC Boxers in the US 40+years and did breed rescue, my cousin raised Staffies. So I'm familiar with both breeds and combinations thereof - and I can almost guarantee you that dog isn't any part Staffie (no guarantees without DNA tests:), your gorgeous dog is a Boxer-German Shepherd mix.

Please use the mix as your image search term, I think you'll see what I mean. I'm in the UK now, and a snap of a dog looking JUST like yours is the first return on the search engine (GoogleUK). Once you tell the vet about the image search I'm sure he/she will have a 'forehead smack' moment:)

I probably don't need to tell you the best way to help your new love is to look at those pics then read all you can on both breeds so that you know what to expect as your dog matures (uh, be warned, with Boxers full maturity doesn't happen until around three years, so puppy behaviours are not mis-behaviours just immaturity).

He is 40 kgs, but I don't see him as a "big dog". The vets are unsure what breed he could be. Any advice would be great.

I did a quick search on boxers and the ones with brindle coloring also have a lot of white chests and their jowls are larger. I also checked out brindle pit bulls and learned not all pit bulls are white chested, but solid brindle. The ears on both breeds look alike. The pit bulls jowls are not floppy and slobbery looking. Also, there are brindle color dogs in several other breeds. I guess you'd have to spend money for a DNA to determine actual breed(s) in your dog.

Question: What Breed Is My Dog?

closeupWe adopted this little stray a few months ago. The vet estimated he was about 14 months old. He mostly looks like a Cairn Terrier, but he has very large ears and a long bushy tail. Any ideas what else he could be? In the first photo the shelter had cut his hair short because it was matted. The 2nd photo is just this week, 5 months later.

This dog is beyond cute! He looks like quite a mix. TF is only showing one photo, but the fur looks like poodle fur, and the color looks like poodle too. I have had Cairns and they do have big ears, but in this pic your dog looks like the ears are set lower on the head, more like a papillon. Soo..my guess is a cairn, poodle papillon cross.

Question: What Breed is My Dog?

black brown medium dogShe's a 3 year old that weighs 48 lbs with sort of a black and tan coloring. Occasionally she looks sort of a charcoal color instead of black. Her fur feels like velvet, she has a curled up tail most of the time. As she's gotten older, she has a pretty thick and muscular stature. At the dog park she tends to herd other dogs by chasing them and nipping at their rear ends some times.

Inoculations and a good looking over will go a very long ways towards getting Puppy and you off to a good start, and bonus - the vet will be able to give you an idea of what all you have there.

I raised AKC Boxers, my cousin raised American Staffordshire Terriers and we both did a lot of breed rescue that included some 'interesting' exotic mixes. To my eyes your dog looks like a mix of both Boxer and Staffie with a bit of French Bull Dog thrown in that gene pool somewhere (based on the eyes and severely undershot jaw). I'd say the mix is 3/4s Boxer with the Staffie and French Bull Dog being a mix of the two remaining breeds.

Check with your vet, and do an image search using the three breeds and the word 'mix' in your search term - I'm pretty sure you'll see what I mean within the first fifteen or twenty images.

I raised Boxers in the US forty+ years and also did a lot of breed rescue including mixes - your dog looks like a Boxer-Lab mix to me, one parent being a fawn coloured Boxer and the other one of the lighter Labs. Do an image search using the term 'Boxer-Lab mix' and you'll see what I mean.

However your dog also looks a bit like a Vizsla mix (Boxer-Vizsla or Lab-Vizsla), so run that image search as well.

Gorgeous dog, and you're wise to try to determine breed type because all three breeds I've mentioned require some breed understanding to ensure happy dog and people. For example, a Boxer (even a mix) doesn't fully mature until aged three or so - puppy behaviours in a two year old dog can be frustrating and upsetting to people around the dog if they've no understanding of the breed characteristics.

There are breed-specific characteristics for Labs and Vizsla dogs that be a problem for people as well, so knowing what sort of things to expect can make the difference between a successful rehoming and one that ends badly for dog and family.

Well done you for trying to find out all you can on that truly beautiful dog!

I raised AKC Boxers in the US 40+ years before returning to live permanently in the UK, and my cousin raised American Staffordshire Terriers (aka pit bull or Staffie) - to my experienced eye your gorgeous little pup looks to be a mix of Boxer and Staffie.

Best person to consult, though, would be a canine vet with experience in the two breeds (yes, they do specialise nowadays).

Either way- full or mixed, to keep peace in your neighbourhood - be sure to consult the vet AND your local authorities regarding any legislation on the two breeds. Many locales have enacted legislation and you'll have legal obligations to meet - if the breeds aren't banned altogether there may insurance, fence, and lead laws governing how you keep and maintain the dog.

I raised AKC Boxers in the US 40+years, also did some breed rescue work and my cousin raised Staffies so I've seen pure and mixed - she doesn't look full American Staffordshire Terrier (proper name of pit bulls) as her snout and coat are too long. She looks as though she might have some Shepherd in her.

What she also looks, though, is in need of vet attention - those 'scratches' combined with her coat looks more like the start of mange or a flea dirt allergy - both conditions pretty much standard in mix dogs given up 'free to good home'.

Luckily her injuries or condition don't indicate she was used in dog fighting as a bait dog, but she does look traumatised in the picture you posted. It's a very good sign that she's extending herself to be petted but the lay-back of her ears and the expression in her eyes clearly indicate she's afraid.

Take her to the vet, I don't think she's been cared for well at all - how blessed she is to have become part of your loving family, it won't be long before her coat is silky and her mannerisms free of fear!

Looking at the picture you've posted I don't think she is a mix, just not bred well. I was an AKC Boxer breeder 40+years in the US and my cousin bred American Staffordshire Terriers, plus I did breed rescue for several years before relocating to the UK. So I've got some pretty good experience with both breeds and with mixes of the two - yours does not look like a mix.

In any breed, sometimes backyard breeders do an excellent job choosing sires and dams for litters, often they do not and the puppies are sold to people who then turn the difficult (health, behaviour, looks) dog over to rescue or animal control, or simply dump the unwanted dog on a dark country road. Or the backyard breeder abandons the puppies to animal control. Too, some people with AKC registered dogs do the same if the puppies are not what they thought they would be, btw.

Your Boxer is almost certainly 100% Boxer but not out of excellent bloodlines. This could mean anything from a 'not-quite-right' appearance (which your dog has to a Breeder's or breed lover's eye) to a dog with some very serious health or personality problems. Health wise anything from hip dyplasia to cancer is possible with a badly bred dog. Personality wise you could have either an very timid dog to a highly aggressive one, or one that is so stupid/difficult to train you wonder if they might not have mental retardation - and it's highly possible with a badly bred dog.

On a positive note, you more than likely have a dog who began life as the result of an accidental mating at a backyard breeder - good genes but not the ones the breeder meant to pass on via that particular sire and dam - Dad could have some faults, Mum could have some faults, but if sire and dam are bred on with superior mates the faults can be bred out. But uh-oh if Dad and Mum are the two with faults because those faults are passed on - and I think that's what's happened with yours. The brindle colours are actually a colour in Boxers that is fairly rare and usually occurs with accidental matings. If you'll look on the AKC website at what makes an outstanding Boxer you'll understand more of what I'm trying to say in a very limited space, including about the colour and body composition.

You write the dog is three now so you've had this dog in your home for a while and clearly love her. Hopefully you've had her spayed - if not please do it now to prevent another litter of unknown genes being exposed to potential abuse, and Mum having reproductive health problems in her later years.

She's now fully mature as a Boxer, she won't get any taller now but may widen some more especially across her chest, adding to the Staffie (the proper nickname because pit bull has SUCH a bad connotation!) look, so you'll need to stress to people she is a full Boxer out of an accidental mating. Boxers are generally very smart even in bad breeding, so she's going to keep you on your toes and you'll be helped by knowing with Boxers you really can teach an old dog new tricks:)

Your local library, the Internet, your vet, and your local recreation services (obedience training) can help you tremendously to understand the special needs of a poorly bred pedigree dog. Boxers who have come from bad breeding like yours do need some special understanding - but they can be amazingly good companion animals!

On a final note, expect her to develop some health problems (urinary tract and nerve endings that control mobility mainly) as she hits around 7yo, and that she may either live much longer than the average 9-11 years or sadly, fewer years than average.

He looks a lot like my dog, who is now four years old. So I'm guessing a Jack Russell Terrier/Chihuahua Mix. Gracie's mom was a purebred Jack Russell who got out one night. She looks a lot like a chihuahua and the vet says her skull is the shape of a typical chihuahua.

Question: What Breed is My Dog?

This is Myrtle. She was rescued from under a house along with her five brothers and sisters and her mom who was a gray, looked to be, full blooded Pit Bull. She is almost 7 weeks old now and they say she looks like a Boxer and Pit mix, but you don't come across very many stray Boxers. Her mother was a bait dog, was missing her teeth, badly scared up, and thought to of had about 5 or 6 litters of puppies already. So she had been a stray for a while. Myrtle is very smart and playful. Her legs are short and stocky and the only black she has is on her nose. She has webbed toes, but Pit ears. What is this baby? Closeup of her face and front end. Myrtle looking at camera. Closeup, dark muzzle and around eyes. White spot on nose and front legs. Sitting in someone's lap.

I was an AKC Boxer breeder (40+years whilst living in the US) and also did breed rescue for several years before relocating to the UK; my cousin raised Staffies. My experience with both breeding and rescue tells me this is indeed a Boxer-Staffie mix, and from the looks of your Myrtle, the mix is of parents with excellent genes on both sides.

Staffie is the short for American Staffordshire Terrier and from what I can tell of the yours, she really does come from a very good bloodline - same with the Boxer. On the Staffie side she has very good torso and leg formation, and on the Boxer side (from the look of her head shape, ears, eyes, muzzle and colour) she has a perfectly formed Boxer head with the much wanted Boxer eyes and fawn colouring that is well dispersed. She had a sweet look to her face yet is alert and clearly intelligent with those solemn yet curious eyes. (Breeders who really love the breed look for these things!)

The Staffie part of her (torso and legs) looks neatly formed and has all of the 'right' characteristics. To be honest, you have a really beautiful dog there! Because she has the Boxer head and face instead of the Staffie's more frankly aggressive looking face and head, she's going to grow up to be about 45lbs of gorgeous, knee high dog, and pure love if she's trained properly!

Because of all that I don't think she really was a stray for as long as you might think - dogs with that good a set of bloodlines don't usually go stray (as you pointed out re Boxers). Very, very sad to say that I think your Myrtle's mum was once a very loved well bred Staffie who was stolen to use as a breeder, and the Boxer sire was likewise stolen for the same reasons. Because of all the scarring you are very likely correct that she may have been used as a bait dog at one point but more likely the previous sires were Staffies who were ring dogs (fighters) and ring dogs are known to savage a breeding female during the mating process.

I suspect she somehow managed to get away from whomever was holding her when she was in the very early stages of her pregnancy. Sadly in breed rescue we do occasionally come across a female who is able to save a litter by escaping and I'm basing my post on my experiences with Staffie and/or Boxer mums who've done it. If you check with Boxer or Staffie breed rescue groups in your area they will confirm what I've just written. Also a visit to a good canine vet (yes, in the US and the UK vets are now specialising in domesticated species) will confirm your puppy is what I've said re breed mix.

As a Boxer-Staffie, she really does need to be carefully trained. There are breed specific books (library and for sale) and websites offering free breed-specific training guides that will be a huge help to you. Also, many Parks and Recreation centres offer low-cost obediance courses.

Get some books or peruse several Boxer and Staffie sites to learn all the breed characteristics so that you understand your darling pup's needs and understand that as a Boxer-Staffie she is not going to fully mature until around aged 3 years. Boxers and Staffies both are a 'mouthy' breed - they LOVE to chew, so be sure to have acceptable, vet approved chewies for her if you don't want her eating your sofa (not kidding, I've had Boxers do that!).

Finally, and perhaps most important, you need to check with your local authorities (town council, police, Animal Control, and the vet) to find out any legislation regarding what has sadly become in the eyes of many to be 'dangerous dog breeds'. These include Dobies, Rotties, Staffies, and Boxers, and the laws in your area may include the need to have special insurance, stout fencing, obligatory training, and almost surely will include muzzle-lead laws when in or around the general public.

Muzzle-lead laws generally state the owner must have the dog muzzled-leashed, or crated when you have company in your home, as well as when walking the dog in public areas. May I recommend the Halti muzzle as humane and reliable, and a chest harness instead of the insanely cruel choker? You'll find these are breed and vet recommended as the very best methods of controlling this strong a dog.

All the best to all of you, she really looks like a fantastic pup with the potential to be an outstanding family companion!

Most Recent Answer

By Frugal Sunnie [11]03/21/2014

She looks 100% Staffie (short for American Staffordshire Terrier which is the correct and preferred name for this breed) however, I raised AKC Boxers, not Staffies.

Not to lecture, but is it really all that important that she is a pure Staffie? She looks like a sweet dog but Staffies, particularly when referred to as 'pit bulls' are considered a dangerous dog in many American and British locales.

Please be sure you understand your responsibilities including always keeping her leashed and muzzled in public, behind a safe and stout fence when not on lead, and ALWAYS supervised around vulnerable people including children (babies, toddlers, grade schoolers), small teens, disabled, and elderly people.

Additionally you may be liable for higher insurance premiums, rental properties may be difficult if not impossible to contract, and many HOAs are banning the dogs nowadays as well.

Know your responsibilities - if you decide you cannot meet them, please rehome her through a no-kill breed rescue group. They will find her a good home with people who understand the special needs of this breed and are able to meet those needs.

Dog laying on couch.His name is Gunner and we got him from the animal shelter. They told us he is German Shepherd mixed with something (common story). We took him to the vet and they told us he is part Malamute. The more I research, however, the more I think differently. All I know is he will be huge! He is 4 1/2 months and is getting so heavy.

He is really smart and already knows a lot of keywords, sit, outside, bed, (almost stay and lay down). He is very observant and boy does he have a good noise.He is always on the hunt for something. He is definitely a cuddle bug (as he's on my lap now), but loves being outdoors and playing with the other dogs. I trust him enough to where I can leave him in the house and come back to not much damage (maybe some torn up firewood or a shoe if I leave one out), but overall he is very trustworthy.

Try doing a Google Images search using the search term 'mixed pit bull puppies' or 'mixed American Staffordshire puppies'. American Staffordshire Terrier is the correct name for 'pit bulls', they're usually called 'Staffies' or 'Staffys'.

I'd say your pup (so cute!) is at least partly Boxer but the legs don't look Boxer or Staffie, instead to be honest they look Corgi (Welsh Corgi). So there might be a mix of three breeds in there.

I was an AKC Boxer breeder for over 40 years in the US (I live in the UK now) and also did breed rescue which is why I do think there is some Boxer in your puppy - but there is something else in there too.

I looked into that baby's face and saw my Rocky. A Aussie cow dog. Aka red healer. But his brindle coat and face also has great resemblance to the treer Tennessee brindle. Would be a possible mix especially if he came from the country or an Amish area. Your baby is beautiful!

The healer is a herding dog and always on the job. They are known to be excellent with kids and baby sitting. I had our cow dog for 10 years and learned to adjust to his natural traits of keeping things in one place including my husband and I.

The down side of the healer is he is a great amount of dingo. Believed to be 1/2 collie 1/2 dingo. So they are a challenge to train. You must never be a push over with these breeds. You'll always outsmarted! Be persistent it will pay off in the end. Google Bootscoot videos to see how smart this breed is!

Closeup of dog.I got her from some of my friend's neighbors and I have seen the dad and he looks like a Husky. He howls and barks a lot. My dog is very quiet, but doesn't like to be away from people. She looks somewhat like a Husky, but I'm not sure if she is mixed with something else. Any ideas?

Dead ringer for my Cody boy. I had the same question but am convinced it's husky and German shepherd. I was told he came from Michigan. Might they be related? I swear they're identical.

Question: What Breed is This Dog?

Dog on couch.I just saw this funny video by JKFilms and they had a dog, named Brown, that I really like. I have been looking into getting a dog for sometime now, but I don't really know what I want. I really like the color combination on Brown and he is also the perfect size of dog I want. I currently live in a house but in about a year and a half I'm going to live in an apartment for college and I really want a small dog to keep me company.

Do any dog breed experts know what kind of breed or mix of breeds Brown is? I personally think he is some mix of a Jack Russell, but I am not sure as I don't really know a lot about dog breeds. If anyone can help by telling me what breed or mix of breeds Brown is, so I can look for a puppy like him, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :D

Here is the video btw:

I am just guessing, but I think he has Chihuahua and maybe Dachshund, but it is hard to tell. He may have Jack Russel. Remember that even though he may be small, he will still need exercise and attention. If you are heading to college, you have to consider if you have time for him. You may have a long day of classes and then want to go out with your friends, but that is not fair to your dog. They just want their people, and you will need to really carve out some time for him. It is unfair to him if you get a dog only to decide you do not have the time afterall to care for him. give it lots of thought first.

Question: What Breed is My Dog?

Rocco sitting.This is Rocco, he is 4 years old. We've only had him for about a year now and we have no idea what breed he is. He is very playful, loves people and kids, he doesn't get along very well with other dogs. He's medium in size and weights 46 lbs. The last time he was to the vet they guessed he was a Bearded Collie Rottweiler mix. If anyone has a dog like him and has any insight on what breed he is could you please help me out.

Question: What Breeds Are My Dogs?

I have four dogs each an unwanted puppy. We have so many theories, but just for fun want to see what others think.

Miakoda black female about two years old. We think she's Black Lab and Aussie Shepherd, or Black Lab and Border Collie mix. Black female.

Tegra brown female about 1 1/2 years old. We think Chocolate Lab and Pit Bull mix. Brown female.

Thor black male 1 1/2 years old. We think Black Lab and Pit Bull mix, or Black Lab and Mastiff mix. We were told he was Black Lab and Blue Heeler. Black male.

Our newest one is Max black and brown male 5 months old. Think he's Rottie and German Shepherd. That's what we were also told. Could he have wolf? Black and brown male.

Do an Internet search using the dog breed name and the word 'puppies'. Scroll through the pictures - should answer your question to see what both (or a mix of the two) look like.

Question: What Breed is My Dog?

White and light brown puppy.We think she might be a Golden Retriever/Pit mix or Lab/Pit mix. Her hair is pretty long especially down the center of her back, it's pretty thick in that area. In the picture we think she is about 3 months old, she is now about 5 months and she has grown significantly. Also, she was found abandoned on some back streets in the countryside so no one can really give us any answers to her breed besides a blood test of course.

Because of the eye colour and what little I can see of the body, she does look like she's got some American Staffordshire Terrier (correct name of pit bull dogs), and I think you may be right about the Lab or Golden Retriever part as well - it looks as though the AST part isn't dominant (whew, because they are wonderful dogs who can be a real handful!).

Do Google Image searches using those breeds as your search term and include the word 'mix'. I think you'll see images of dogs similar to your dog on those returns.

What an absolutely gorgeous Boxer mix you have there!

I was an AKC Boxer breeder for over 40 years in the US (live in the UK now) and also did breed rescue - I've seen hundreds of Boxer mix dogs and your dog looks like a 3/4 Boxer at least - mum and dad probably both Boxers with a little something like Mastiff or Bulldog mixed in.

A vet will be able to give you a better idea of the other part, but from the looks of your dog, count on at least 3/4 Boxer. As for the other quarter part, I do think Mastiff or Bulldog from the huge, flat head. All good breeds, you should have a wonderful companion dog in yours who is also going to be a little more protective of those he considers 'his' - you may want to check your local laws to be sure you comply and don't lose your dog to any law regulating keeping him that you don't know about.

It will be very hard to tell until the puppy gets a little older. We adopted a rescue Chihuahua mix when she was a puppy. She started out as a tiny, shorter-haired little girl, and grew up to be a beautiful 27-pound long-hair, which our vet thinks may be a Golden Retriever mix. (Daddy would have been the Chihuahua, obviously). Mother Nature is a mad scientist!

I am not allowed to have big dogs where I live, I really love him so I'm hoping he is just a Chihuahua so I can keep him. Please let me know what you think he could be mixed with. He is brown, has black and white accent hairs and a strip of white behind his neck, one white paw and some other paws have white toes. The tip of his tail is white too. His face is colored like a German Shepherd.
Maybe they lied and he is a mix, I've never really seen a Chihuahua who is so multi accent colored.
