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. 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.

I cannot, for the life of me, figure out what kind of mix my dog is! I almost want to get a doggie DNA test, but I thought maybe someone else could give me some opinions!

Riley is supposedly a Mini Pin/Terrier mix. The vet said he looked more like a Rottweiler mix, but he just doesn't seem big enough to have Rottweiler in him. Any ideas what my little guy's breed/mix might be?

I found my dog 4 months ago when he was 45 days old in a dumpster trash. He was in bad shape. We took him to the vet and did 2 vaccinations and tommorow he will go for the third, he is good now.

The vet says he is a sheep dog mix or Foxhound. I don't know because his mother was a stray dog.

I bought this dog from someone at a festival a few weeks ago. I was told he was Colby Pit Bull and Red Nose Pit mixed, but the more I look at him and compare to other dogs, he doesn't look like a full blooded Pit to me. In my opinion, he looks like he's mixed with Boxer.

We bought this dog at 1 1/2 weeks old and we are not sure exactly what breed he is. We were told that he was a mix of Labrador and Boxer.

But when we took Havaac to the vet we were told he might have some Pit Bull in him because of his blue eyes and his color.

I'm wondering what breed my dog is. I'm thinking its a chihuahua mixed with something else. I love her very much and I really want to know what breed she is. She has a small face, short snout, and her fur is about 5 cm long.

What type of dog is this? i was told it was a pure bred Pitbull. Now I'm not sure. People say it's a cross with a Boxer. It has a lot of loose skin, the dog was neglected. Others say it could be cross with a Mastiff.

I just got this little guy yesterday and am just curious what kind of dog he is? Will he get very big? Normal questions of what I should expect.

I'm assuming he might get pretty big. This is just me going off of his paw size as he is barely 3 months old.

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.

Can someone tell me what breed my dog is? I've been told he's a Pekingese or that maybe he's a Tibetan Spaniel. He is the most wonderful dog. He has one brown eye and one blue eye. Thanks for your help.

What breed is my dog? He is very smart, is very protective of our home, and he gets along well with other dogs. I don't have to use a leash when I walk him. He's really friendly. I'm just trying to figure out what breed of dog he is. My daughter brought him home from St Louis and she got them from a lady at Walmart for 10 bucks.

I adopted a dog from our local shelter, he was said to be a Great Dane, but I think he is a mix of Great Dane and something else. I asked the vet and she said she couldn't tell if he was a mixed breed or not.

This is Monty; he is 5 months old. We have had him for about 2 months. My husband rescued him and surprised me with him. To me he looks like a Min Pin/Chi mix. How can I find out what breed he is?

Does anyone have any ideas what breed she is? I was told Pit/Boston Terrier mix, other people keep telling me Corgi, which I can see. I know for sure she can't be a Pit/Boston mix because her face is too long. She's only about 25 lbs, with solid muscle, and has kind of short legs. Thanks.
