    DefaultSuggestions on what "Mix" is in Lilly

    I have had Labrador owners look at Lilly and say "she's a lab", but since I rescued this girl, I have no idea her lineage. Any suggestion on what the mix is or even if there is a mix in her at all?

    Here's our Lilly

    Just wanted to add, we think she has a bit of Standard Terrier in her as there are LOADS of Terriers here. Or could be the mini terrier called a "bully" that is very popular here.

    Look forward to hearing what the expert Lab breeders and owners think of the mix that might be there.

    She looks a whole lot a Lab, but in the second picture you can see the coat is a lighter black. The color is exactly like the Lab/Shepherd mix I use to have, who by the way was an awesome dog! Does she appear to have a guarding instinct? From an early age my Lab/Shepherd was always "on the lookout" and was somewhat weary of strangers, but once I assured him they were OK he was very friendly. My purebred Lab loves everyone .

    Thanks for the replies. My husband was leaning towards shephard.

    Paul0130, don't know about the guarding or "on the look out" as she was on her own for 5 weeks as a pup. Could be just a survival instinct she acquired due to being "on the look out" of being caught.

    isn't this the dog you just returned for "aggressive attacks" on your husband?

    she does look pretty labby but may not be pure, if that's an issue.

    Her ears are set too high and look smaller than a Lab.

    Mauricio, if you look at the two dates they are 10 days apart and there no other comments were made here since 5/21.
    Plus they have not been on here since 5/21

    Maybe a small mix........could replace some purebred quirks. Beautiful pup !
