She totally reminds me of a brindled version of Zuma... so whenever you figure out what she is, let me know. LOL

You could get her a doggie DNA test I have my bets that she comes out as a great dane, poodle mix.

But in reality I'd say she's probably a several generation "street dog." Apart from the brindle, she's the definition of a little, brown, short haired, muscular dog with prick ears that tends to be what dogs turn into if left to their own devices. And if I were you, since you really don't have a clue, if you're made to guess (such as on a apartment lease), I'd say she was a whippet/basenji mix or some other "innocent" sounding cross. You have no reason to believe she's a shepherd (though she certainly does look like a dutchie!) and you know just how hard it is to find a place with a potentially "dangerous" breed. I wouldn't be surprised if shepherds are on some of the banned breed lists. That's my two cents.

Yeah I'm guessing you're in the situation I am with Kim and Web...mutts likely born of mutts or dogs that were never a recognized breed in the first place...it's fun to speculate though

She looks like a Dutch cross but I'd say the likelyhood of that isn't great. I agree with Shai - she's likely a result of mutts who were the results of mutts (: She does look like she might have some kind of sighthound in her though. Grace would probably have a better idea of what kinds of dogs are popular in the area Cricket was born.

Multimix/pariah dog - she reminds me so much of the village dogs I saw in Trinidad!



For apartments I'd prob list her as a whippet mix, though.

She definitely LOOKS like a dutch shepherd X whippet mix, but I'd say the chances of that are pretty slim. I'm not sure what makes up the mexican street dogs, but i hear that term a lot.

I also don't know how common lurcher type mixes are down in mexico, but my guess would be a generic sighthound mix crossed with some sort of shepherd-type/herding-type dog...like ACD or german shepherd mix.

I'd say for apartments Whippet/GSD. I doubt many JQP know what a Mal is, but if they did, they may be more inclined to allow a GSD mix than a Mal mix. (Besides, she probably isn't part mal.)

I don't know what she is, but I want one. Lol!

Are coated xolos double or single coated? I just wonder, because xolos have a very sighthound-esque shape and demeanor. Can't wait until the village dog project gets done with the Americas. I wouldn't be surprised if there is some xolo type ancestry at some point in most of the street dogs down there.

I'm not sure... I think it was Renee that told me a while back ago that she wouldn't be surprised if there was some throwback xolo DNA in her lineage. I definitely can see the pariah idea and/or just a kazzillion different breeds involved... that's why it's so fun to speculate

Except that GSDs are one of the biggies on the not accepted lists...
