    DefaultGuess that breed!!! Bean asks "what am I?" (Ender's temp little buddy)

    Hey all. At the urging of my girlfriend, we decided (well...I) to be a foster parents for local rescue who have puppies and dogs looking for temp homes down at the local Petsmart. We went last Sat. and looked at some and decided to bring home this little dude:



    His name is Bean, after Ender's Game of course. He's very quiet, gets along great with Ender as you can see:


    When I first got him home, Ender was like..."What the %&$# do you expect me to do with this?" But now they play all the time, mainly with Bean climbing on or chewing on Ender.



    I'm working on just getting him used to other people, other dogs, having hands around his ears and mouth, ya know, usual puppy stuff. My girlfriend taught him sit yesterday in 20 minutes, now he does it all the time, so he seems pretty smart. He's also responding to his name (temporary or not).

    Now here's the funny thing. The rescue rep. at the store said he was a Beagle/Lab mix. Now this is interesting considering he looks JUST like a ROTTWEILLER puppy. What do you think? Beagle/Lab mix? Rottie? or other? I have him until Sat., after that, it depends on if he gets adopted or not. I'll just take him week by week. But if he's a rottie I guess I should know that and take any special steps given their supposed predisposition.

    He's cute whatever he is. Rotties are sweet gentle dogs so I wouldn't go overboard with worry.

    Ditto those breeds, and how nice of you to foster. Looks like Ender is loving the company.

    By the way, does "girlfriend" have a first name? and will we ever get to see more of her than her armpit?

    Well gee, I have one just like that!!


    This was taken 13 1/2 years ago. Nutmeg's ears started to stand up around 6+ months old. We have said that she is collie, GSD & rottie. Who know??

    I'm pretty damned sure he's a Rottie & here's why.

    I've already posted these once but I'll do it here too so you can see. This was my 2 when they first met their new playmate next door - a pure bred Rottie.

    Ha ha, girlfriend is Meghan. Here's a pic of the two.



    As for Bean, his coloring looks Rottie, but his tail doesn't. He's got a long, soft, kind of labby tail.

    My initial thought "why is she naked, holding a puppy?" Then I saw the camisole :P

    Bean is too cute (and Meghan is too). Looking forward to more pis of Ender & his new bud.

    I could see beagle/lab. I had a dog that used to look like a rottie as a pup but was a lab/collie mix (we saw the mom and dad was a neighbor's dog). She looked very much like that as a puppy, As she got older you could definitly tell there was no rott in her.

    He doesn't look like a beagle to me. Looks like some Rott. He's adorable! :-*
