Default Breed guess?

Just for kicks and giggles, I wanted to ask what you guys think of Buddha, my best friend's dog. I always go back and forth on my guesses for him. My friend got him from the SPCA at three months old, where he was surrendered by someone with no knowledge of his parents. He's a big boy, about 100 lbs. I love this dog so much - he's a big derp and not always the brightest thing on four legs, but he's such a love.

Pictures - sorry I don't have a side shot of him.

Baby Buddha (the ears!)

And just for fun - Cricket about to get run over by the impending giant red wall of doom. Buddha never really realizes how wide the stick in his mouth is, so if you're not careful he'll whack you in the legs with it.

That fourth picture, the more closeup of the side of his face, makes his face look really rottie. Just has that rottie expression. Maybe lab/rott? The color doesn't make sense to me for that, though.

His face looks like my neighbors... They call him a lab but I think he's mixed with something. So lab mix is my guess.
Thank you Vivien and Angel Chicken for the siggy! Also I have been frosted!!! And as of 9/13/07 I know the secret handshake!

I'd guess ridgeback/lab too. But I DO see the rottie resemblance in the face.

According to google, these are ridgeback/lab mixes:

I knew a Lab x Rottie who looked just like him! He's super cute. I'd say that or Lab x Mastiff. RR x Rottie would make sense for the color... and could be possible if they're common in your area.

He's adorable. Put me down for rottie mix of some sort. Black and tan is pretty recessive so it's not hard to get away from.

ETA: he has ridgeback ears in his puppy pictures. <3
