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

I am wondering if my puppy is a Shepherd/Golden Retriever mix. I was told she was a Golden/Lab, but this little girl is 9 weeks old and weighs almost 15-20 pounds already. She is huge and her color is different.

I would really like to know the breed of my new puppy. He looks full German Shepherd, but I'm still skeptical about it.

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.

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 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!

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.

We found a stray puppy roaming the streets. No collar, not a runner, so we think she was "left" to find a new home. She's the sweetest thing ever and loves people. Could she be a mix maybe?

I got my puppy on Tuesday. He was advertised as a Staffordshire Bull terrier, but his face is very slender and his legs are long. Could someone please help me and tell me if they think he looks a bit Pit Bull?

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.

What kind of Husky is my dog? I recently adopted Zoey, she is said to be one and half years old. But, I am convinced she is younger by her looks and the way she acts. Many people have said she doesn't look like pure bred Siberian Husky.

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.

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.

My 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. So far it seems there is some growling and play biting going on, but otherwise she is a very sweet dog.

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.

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.

I would like to know what breed my dog is. I'd say that he has some Labrador in him, but my friend told me that he has also some Australian Shepherd in him. Or maybe an Australian Kelpie mix? I'd like to know your opinion. What breed do you think my dog is? Thanks.
