Default More breed guesses

John went out of town this weekend for a family reunion and I am stuck here alone. John's parents went to the store last night to get stuff for their trip. They called John and told him that there was a yard sale up the road with a saddle. So John ran up there. Came back and told me the saddle wasn't worth what he was asking. Then asked me if I wanted some company this weekend. Well DUH! LOL. And then told me to get in the car. His surprise? PUPPIES!!

The people had 11 little pups and the poor things are skinny and their coats are so dull. They said mom was a 100+ pound Lab and dad was a 100+ pound German Shepherd. They *think* the pups are 12 weeks old and they're only 7 pounds each! Either they're younger or dad was a smaller dog. Regardless, they're cute and they'll keep me busy all weekend! Wish I could have taken them all but I'm working on finding foster homes for the rest.

Puppy one





Puppy two





Both


I'm working on better pictures. So what do you think on breeds?

they aren't in bad shape yet, it's clear mom couldn't produce enough milk. but good feeding & worming should put them right in about a week.

Yeah, I have heard that many times too. And maybe they just thought dad was a Shepherd too, he could be a mutt as far as I know. They described him as "over 100 pounds, black with long hair. brown feet and a huge mane around his neck like a lion".
