Default "Basic Black Dog". Any breed guesses?

This is Easton. He is about 75lbs. He is very sweet, has no DA so far (although he seems young, maybe a year old). The sign on his run said he was also good with kids. He was fostered for a little bit before coming to FOHA, so I guess that's how that was discovered. So what do you think is in him? (Those ears are natural, only his tail is docked). These are just some quick shots I grabbed today, I will get better pics when I can. I am stuck in the cattery now, I haven't worked in the kennels in two weeks. I miss dogs!

Huh... I'd say for sure pit mix... but with what I have no idea. Those ears are something else. I also can't quite figure out why they'd dock his tail.

He looks like a pit bull for sure. They can have erect ears, I have seen them docked too (people get...confused). He's kinda big though, so I'd guess he's mixed with something and it's probably something that is traditionally docked.

His head makes me think of Ella! Pit mix at the least, maybe a pure pit with a docked tail?

1st thing that came to my mind when I saw his head was great dane so maybe pitt/dane

And his tail could have been docked due to an injury.

Boxer/Pit mix.

WAY too small to be a Dane, but I see Boxer in the conformation and the set of his eyes, and a little in the face shape. It would also explain the docked tail.

I see boxer, too. A lot of people will dock any kind of boxer mix, and some people get the idea that pits need docked too. He's cute!
