What Breed Is My Dog?

I got my dog, Grayson, a few weeks ago from the shelter and am just wondering what he is. I've gotten a variety of possibilities from strangers such as Boxer, Staffordshire, and Mastiff, but I have no idea. He's 2 years old and 60 lbs; very affectionate, playful and well behaved.

He is a Pit Bull - we had one that looked like yours but he was light brown [sable] and white. We had him in our house and around our children as they grew up close to ten years and he too was a very affectionate animal.

Pits get such a bad reputation because of other owners who have made their dogs mean.

To this day I still shed tears just thinking about 'Sugar Baby' and how loyal he was to all of us. We lost him to epilepsy - because his medication after a couple of years could not be made any stronger then it already was so, after a family talk about the situation 'we all loved him enough to say good bye and had him put down.' I tell you it was like losing one of my children AND it is even hard for them [the children 2 boys, 4 girls) to talk about Sugar Baby without bringing a tear to all of our eyes.

You have there with you a very faithful companion for life, keep him close to you and you won't ever regret it. Sugar Baby was very scared of thunder storms and yours may be also.

Good Luck to you both!

Yep, he's a pit bull. They are loyal, fantastic animals. We actually drove for 4 hours to pick up my pup from a shelter. Ours is a half pit, half shepherd. We wanted a half pit bull simply because they are so amazing.


Congrats on your new puppy, he looks like a wonderful companion!

I have to agree with the previous replies - this is a Staffie and quite a handsome one at that!

My cousin raised AST (American Staffordshire Terrier) back in the US and I raised AKC Boxers (40+years, I now live in the UK), we both did breed rescue. Colour, shape of head and body, and the splayed hind quarters (typical of both Boxers and Staffies) of your dog all say 'Staffie!'. And a happy chappie, too - they don't do that flat hipped lay unless A-happy, and B-healthy with good hip formation.

So, I'm not seeing any Boxer in your lad at all but all Staffie. What does the vet say?
