    DefaultNew here - what's your opinion

    My family just adopted Blaze a few days ago from the humane society. We were told she's lab mix, around 7 to 9 weeks old. One of the workers said she saw the mom and she was a lab. I'm not convinced but it doesn't matter. She's been a great pup so far, minus the night wakings. Here's a picture of her. I would like to get some opinions of her breed, or what she looks to be mixed with. Thanks!

    it is REALLY hard to say with puppies that age. it's a crap shoot to guess breeds anyway (and lots of shelters label things lab mixes as labs are "popular and friendly"). Congrats, she's a one of a kind cutey.

    My first impression is that she is mostly terrier type since the ear set is so high and there is such a considerable amount of white on the chest. Coat doesn't look right for a lab either but a better photo showing structure/ profile would be helpful too.

    Doesn't look lab to me. Maybe a little pittie in there.

    Not sure if this picture helps. I was wondering if she might be part pit too, not sure how I feel about that with having 2 small kids. Here are pictures of her sisters also. Even though I didn't see them, I found these pictures online listed as lab mixes (same as blaze and same shelter). The worker said all of the siblings were black and already adopted. Their numbers were listed in sequence, Blaze being 434589. The sisters don't look pit, but who knows.

    not saying they are pit mixes but even if they are, pits can be truly WONDERFUL dogs. didn't they used to be called nanny dogs!! You have an innocent baby there, do your job as a good owner to properly train and safely socialize your baby and you'll be fine. Socialise to people, dogs, places, sights, sounds (remember it has to be positive and safe)

    I do agree. I had a pit when I was a young adult. He was the best dog ever. That was over 20 years ago and I still miss him. I also know what they're capable of and having small kids, I'm over protective of them in general. She seems very intelligent already and sensitive to gentle correction. Her coat is really dense, thick and fuzzy. I don't think that's typical of a pit but like I've said, who knows

    I personally think she looks like a Lab/Staff/Border Collie. She's very pretty!

    The vet said she is definitely part lab. She said it's too early to guess what else she may be but then turned to blaze and said "are you part border collie?" So I think if you and her can both see that, you just may be right! She has a very thick, dense, fuzzy, soft coat and is now growing additional longer and darker hair, so it may be the border collie coming out. Thank you for the opinion and compliment
