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.
One of my foster dogs was a lab/pit mix. He looked alot like Abbey.
ah, but there are different strains of pitbulls.. some are more square and bully style, others leaner and svelte like Abby:Originally Posted by Trickster
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..!Originally Posted by kaytris
It will always be a mystery to me, but I love my baby girl and that's all that matters!
Absolutely! Abbey is a beautiful girl and looks very sweet.Originally Posted by kal3idoscope
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.

I think she's pure beauty!

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 . . .Originally Posted by Baloo317
You could take all of the breeds and make a new breed for Abby. A Pitshep Staffador perhaps . . .
