Default What else does Mikey have in him?

Hi,
I'm hoping you'll give me some feedback on what other breeds could be in him. It's the general consensus that he has some pit in him. I don't think he's all pit though. Not from the pics I look up online. He's from the local shelter. His tail has been docked. Temperment - stubborn, loving, loyal, faithful, hunter (can't leave him with bunnies), needy, whiny, VERY people/family oriented (not like Mav)...

Thoughts?

I have to agree, he looks like a 1/2 Chocolate Lab and 1/2 Pit Bull. Nice lookin' dog though!

I betcha I could tell you exactly what he has in him if I was around. I could see maybe some of the traits that some breeds hold. For example, I heard somebody saying that he may have some weimaraner in him, but I could probably only determine that by observing him. If he's full of life and energy; loves to run a lot ... basically very sport.

You think? Lab. Hmmm. Not sure about that. He's quite small. And when he runs you can see the power in his back legs, bow-legged kind of. Like other bulldogs.

I'm thinking lab to cuz i used to have a lab/pit mix(long story) and he was small for a lab even though he was like somewhere around 85% lab but not all pits are big though. I've seen some pits where there head barely meets my knee and thats pure pit. My lab/pit had the same exact body shape,ears,temperment(?) and like urs a excelent hunting dog(never uesed him for it but he cought a baby bunny once)

most true pits airn't BIG dogs eh around 30-80 lbs both Zeus and tundra are pretty small their backs come to my knee (zeus's is maybe alittle taller then Tundra). Mikey does have the traits of a lab but hey who knows either way he's beautiful .

I have another, funny, pic of him.



And I also wanted to mention that he's got quite short hair. He can't be outside for long unless he's moving (walks) and he gets freezy ears.

He could be a real Heinz dog! He has some Lab look, some Pit or Staffie (I'm more inclined toward the AmStaff than the Pit in his case), but it looks like he's trying to have an undercoat!

Great looking dog, wherever his parents came from!
