Default Charlie actually a Rhodesian mix?

I'm actually beginning to think our new puppy Charlie (who is getting huge!) is actually a Rhodesian mix, rather than the GSD/Lab mix.

Any thoughts?




at 5.5 months



He has a very distinct zig-zig on his tail which i have also seen in other Rhodesian mixes. Hard to see it all, because of the flash.

I definitely see Lab. RR? Not so much, but anything is possible in a mix.

As far as his coat pattern, that's actually pretty common. All five of my short-medium coat length dogs had it. GSD mix, two Lab/Catahoula/Terrier mixes, and two Mastiffs.

He's adorable, I see that zig zag on the coat in all of my lab clients.

Yea, it's really hard to tell with mixed breeds. Especially with his coloration, there are a lot of breeds combined that make that color pattern.

His coat is very short, and extremely dense, very hard to spread it to see his skin. and has very odd markings, strange,darker colored lines that run through out his coat.

Great temperament though. Very smart, catches on easily, and hard headed, but what puppy isn't?

Maybe some day I'll splurge on a DNA test to find out. I'm just one of those nerds that likes to know.

Thanks for the heads up on the DNA tests. Are they all inaccurate or just the majority?

Thank you, he is indeed a handsome boy , whatever he is!

Another breed he looks very similar to is a Blackmouth Cur, which would make more sense being down here in South Georgia.

He has a serious nose on him. He smells and sees every bird,squirrel, rabbit, gnat that cross him.

Now that you mention that I definitely agree...

Given your location, I'd be more likely to believe Black Mouth Cur than RR.
