What Breed Is My Dog?

What Breed Is My Dog? - brown and white puppyI can't really afford a DNA test right now. I will eventually do one, but I was just wondering everybody's opinion. I found this puppy starving in my yard. I don't know if it's a mutt, a Pit, or a mix. What do you guys think? She's female and just got started teething. We've taken her to the vet for worming and shots and everything. But everybody has a different opinion on what kind of dog she is. Also would you recommend having the ears or the tail cropped? I'm not against or for it I'm just asking for opinions.

She is a mix of several different breeds, in my opinion.

if I had to guess I would say some sort of bull terrier/beagle mix. The snout is way too long and the ears seem long for a pit bull

honestly I think it's kind of cruel to animals to clip their ears or tails. Tails help dogs maintain their balance, and when you clip a dog's ears their very sensitive hearing is overpowering and the dog can get overwhelmed or even ear-damaged by ambient noise with clipped ears.

Dogs have tails and ears for a reason. It is to me a barbaric practice akin to Chinese foot binding, mutilating animals to fit some pathetic 'purebreed' eugenics fetish. But no, I don't feel strongly about it at all, lol

Your puppy probably has several breeds but it is so nice that you have adopted this homeless puppy and already started her vet visits! I feel sure you will love her just the way she is.

  • I believe that a puppy has to have their tail cut at a very early age or it can be bad for the dog. Some dogs have very long tails and many people prefer having it cut but I think that is a personal choice and if done properly (at the right time) will not harm the puppy.
  • Ears? I think some breeds have problems with long floppy ears but most of this is still just a personal choice and no "markings" should not be done for just "cosmetic" reasons.
  • DNA testing is a good thing because it gives the owner a lot of information other than just the breeds so you can get some idea as to what health problems your dog might have in the future.
  • DNA testing has come down in price due to the fact that a lot of people want this information now that it is available to the general public.
  • The prices I have seen run from $40 to over $200 according to how extensive you want to go.

  • Usually the test from the vet is the most expensive but kits can be purchased from most pet stores, farm stores, even Walmart type stores, as well as online.

Enjoy your puppy as I feel sure she will show you lots of love and affection.

I don't plan on having anything clipped. I was just curious. I also think shes to old. Now more interested in what she could be. I am working on training her and need to know what to look for. She started grabbing our weenie dogs neck and shaking. I've stopped her from that so far.

You are right to want to start her training early as things that are cute at one foot high is not always so cute at 2 or 3 feet. I'm sure you will work out a good training plan even without knowing her exact breed.
