Thanks for all the compliments! She really is an awesome little dog, especially for what I want to do with her (I adopted her partly because I wanted to get involved in dog sports, especially agility).

Hah, that first picture Dixie's Mom posted makes me laugh because there's one of her where she has a very similar expression. They could be twins!

The only thing I find at all questionable about the Boston guess is that she's pretty big for a Boston cross at 35 pounds, but I suppose she could have been crossed with something bigger. Regardless, she's down as a Boston X on all her paperwork--living in an apartment makes that a much more, ah, useful guess than "pit mix" for me!

I wouldn't discount boston on size alone. We have a pure BYB boston at work who weighs 48 lbs! It's partially because he's overweight, but that dog is enormous in all ways.

Crossed with something bigger, and there are some pretty good-sized Bostons. Most of the Bostons you see now are of the smaller variety, but they were originally a larger breed. There are 3 size classes in the standard; under 15, 15-20, and 20-25 pound. The larger class is more rare these days, but still out there.

Boston Terrier mix definately. She reminds me of my ex-boss' dog, Elvis who is a boston mixed with who knows what else.
