Okay so my friend and I were talking about what Abbey could possibly be mixed with.
When I got her from the shelter, they knew for sure that she was part Lab, so I'm guessing maybe they had the mother, too? But on the adoption sheet they said she was a "shepherd mix," but I don't see that at all.
I was looking up some pictures and she looks EXACTLY like this dog, except she's yellow : http://www.dailypuppy.com/dogs/khali...mix_2007-02-14
My friend also said she could be part Rhodesian Ridgeback because her hackles on her back to go up, but I don't really see that.
So my question is.. if she is possibly a Lab/Terrier mix.. which type of terrier do you guys think it would be?
Cute new siggy pic.
It's kinda tough to tell from looking at this pic, but I used to think that Abbey was a Lab/Pit mix based on your previous sig pic. If you could add a couple of pictures to your thread, that your would help.
My guess is either Lab/ Pit or Lab/Am. Staffordshire Terrier. She's a doll! :-*

Hmmmm...When I first saw her pictures she reminded me of my friends Rhodie/Lab mix Ruby. But its kinda hard to tell she sure cause im not sure of her height. To me she looks shorter. I don't really see a whole lot of pit in her but some sort of terrier is there.

Lab/Basset Hound (maybe some Beagle)
Well, I STRONGLY beg to differ that it's "very hard to adopt dogs and there aren't many to adopt" in T.O. *Snort*!! :no:
But anyhoo... I volunteer with the shelter, and lots of dogs that we don't know their breed make up 90% of the time end up listed as shepherd crosses, lab crosses or BC crosses, just cause they're so common. And that's a guess, realistically there are no breed experts at the SPCA.
I think you could very possibly drive yourself crazy with trying to figure out what's in there, and breed DNA tests suck because the parents have to be purebred (and on the list of breeds) for it to work, and that's not the case with most mix breeds. 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".
Baloo - 5 year old black lab
Peanut - 7 year old minpin
Monster - 3-ish year old frenchie/jack, rescue
I have always thought from her pics and in person, that Abbey is a lab/pit bull terrier cross. So to answer your question, lab/terrier she could be.

Okay guys, here are a few other pics of Abbey that might help figure out what she is.. She'll be 2 in April so she's pretty much close to full grown @ 45lbs and she is definitely NOT as tall as a Rhodesian.
Crazy ears as a puppy
I'd say there's a Pit bull in there somewhere. The head shape and shape of the ears scream it to me.
