I have a quite random question that has been bugging me ever since I rescued my puppy in the summer. My dog (Abbey) is now about 8 1/2 months old and I still haven't figured out what breed she is. I know that she is part Yellow Lab, but I can't figure out what else she is.
When I adopted her, they told me she was a Yellow Lab/German Shepherd mix.. but I definitely don't see the German Shepherd. Come to find out, they classify almost ALL dogs as German Shepherd mixes when they don't know what they are.. :-\
Anyways, the more I watch her play with other dogs (some Labs, some huskies, some pit bulls, etc) I think that she's part pit bull. Her color is typical of a pit bull and she has a shorter snout than most labs do. Plus her ears are a little perkier than majority of the labs..
So, here are a few pictures. (OKAY, maybe I went a little overboard with the pictures.. but who doesn't love seeing puppy pictures?!) What do you think... Lab mixed with what??!?!
the first day I brought her home <33

and the time line begins..
playing with the husky
halloween -- she's the wolf from little red riding hood.. except without the hood
I don't know...I'm not good at guessing breeds AT ALL, so I won't even try. (Sorry) But she is adorable and looks like she is very happy. It makes me so happy when people rescue dogs and then give them such nice homes. Welcome, by the way.
P.S. Your (or whoever's it is) husky has got ENORMOUS teeth! Yikes!
yesss she is definitely a lover. i'm glad she's so happy with us -- i would die without her!
believe it or not, even though that husky looks rather fierce/scary in the photo, he is the biggest sweetheart. he is my manager's dog and whenever she brings him in, he immediately comes running to me ;D ... maybe that's why she doesn't bring him in anymore..
She does look le she may have some pit in her but she is soooooo cute..
That was what I was thinking from a couple of pics, but it's not real obvious. I don't see any GSD.Originally Posted by abbigailsmom
She's very cute.
From that puppy photo I'd say there's a bit of Vietnamese pot bellied pig in there somewhere LOL
Yes maybe some pit in there, but the important thing isn't what she's mixed with -it is that you love eachother and that is obvious from your siggy. :-*
Such a beauty she is. Love the last pic.

Cute pup. Luv your siggy. Looks like the only thing your dog is mixed with.....is LOVE!
Hard to tell for me.
Excuse me while I give a bit of unsollicited advice, but please please do not let them play like that when she has the prong collar on. If teeth or another collar were to get caught, it might not be pretty.
It also looks a little tight to me, but could just be the picture angle.....Originally Posted by Tbog
She's super cute. What shes mixed with will probably perplex you forever! Lots of different people will see lots of different things.
