What Breed is My 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. What do yall think?

Hey ! I know many times, when people get dogs from previous owners, somehow along the line the actual breed of the animal gets misconstrude. One myth of the Pitbull breed is that there is a "pure" In fact there's really no such thing as a full blooded pit bull of any type! Working in an animal shelter, where 90% of our dogs are pitbulls, I know this. I bet that if you got a DNA test on your dog (yes, it's possible,) That some where along the line, his parents were mixed with Pit/Lab/Hound/Shepard.


It is very hard to know what exactly you have unless you get the DNA test done. I've seen the smallest Pitbull Mix come back with DNA traces of a Mastiff. Believe me, the ears on your dog are mostly Retriever/Hound. And it does have a the "bully breed" type stature. A DNA test would totally be worth it. Who knows? You may find out he has some Australian Shepard as well. Keep me posted on your findings!

Well I know one thing he is very cute! I worked for a vet for years and I know if you want to spend money you can have a DNA test done on him. I am not sure of the costs in your area but I am sure your vet can help you with any information. He looks like a pit bull mix, but he has a beagle look to him also. Like I mentioned very cute dog.

Oh my is he ever handsome!

Whenever I see those choke chains on dogs ( in photos) I have to let you know it is very, very dangerous to leave those on a dog if he is alone.


The chains get caught on knobs and furniture and branches and fences and the dog can choke to death. Please only use that collar when you walk him. I don't want your handsome fella' to get hurt! :)

Please don't use a choke chain unless walking your beautiful dog. My cousin had them on her 2 inside dogs and came home and they were tangled together and 1 almost choked to death. If she had been a little later getting home, at least 1 would have been dead. Looks like he has some boxer in him too. He is very beautiful!

First look at the pic I saw, Boxer Brother in law raises them. It really shouldn't matter what he is, just love him. And get him a real collar, maybe leather with paw prints on it.

I have a pitbull beagle mix (saw the "parents"). She is adorable, very trainable, great guard dog, and all she wants, is to play all day.

Hi! What a cutie! I just love the black eyebrows! I have a puppy that we rescued from the hurricane in Puerto Rico and I was trying to Google search her picture to figure out what breed she is and your dog's picture came up! She's just a little puppy right now but she looks just like your dog!


Google says she is a black mouth cur and golden retriever. She does look very much like the pictures but her snout is a little bit thinner. I'm going to try to attach a picture then you can see what your handsome guy look like as a baby! LOL let me know if you think it's the same breed. Thanks
