    I think she is more than a straight Lab to Pit Bull cross. There is definately some type of Bully breed in there - you can see it in the face. But her body shape doesn't really resemble that of a Lab or a Bully type though...it is more hound like.

    ah, but there are different strains of pitbulls.. some are more square and bully style, others leaner and svelte like Abby:



    I'd say my best guess for abby would be lab x staffy or pitbull.

    Hmm I looked up some pictures of Lab x Pit Bull and Lab x Staffy and she kind of looks like some of both of the mixes..!

    It will always be a mystery to me, but I love my baby girl and that's all that matters!

    In my opinion there is no doubt. She is a purebred Abbey. Done!

    And if you love her and she loves you which I am sure you do, what difference does it make anyway?

    Enjoy each other! That is all that is important.

    I have had the opportunity to share the lives of purebreds and Heinz 57 breeds. They were all great dogs. And the best part of each was that they were mine.

To be honest with you, if I had a dog who was an obvious mix of undetermined breed-age, I'd make up a name and call her that, and leave it at that. OR, use another animal breed and swear up ad down she's that when people ask. Something like, "Maine Coon" or "Arabian".
    I agree that she is probably some sort of lab/terrier mix, and extremely cute. I have a friend that has a dog that looks like a mix of Australian Shepard, Newfie and Lab (but she isn't sure at all). When people ask what kind of dog it is, she always says that she is a very rare Aussie Newfador. Some people know she is joking, but some people say, "That's what I thought . . . she is gorgeous." She has even had people ask if she is going to breed her . . .

    You could take all of the breeds and make a new breed for Abby. A Pitshep Staffador perhaps . . .
