First picture had me thinking Rott/Lab. As I scrolled down, I got to thinking he could be all Lab, tho (the color is a shade of yellow called Fox Red).

If I ran into him out on the street I'd probably guess a really big Lab with some Rottie or mastiff-type mixed in somewhere along the line. Don't see Labs with heads that blocky outside the show circuit very often, and his has a heavier feel to it than I would expect to see from any Lab.

Lab Rott mix.. they are breeding those red fox colored labs a lot so that could be where the color came from.

Danish Mastiff. Duh.
Oh, of course Why didn't I think of that?

Thanks for the guesses, guys! I'd actually never thought about him having any Rottie, but I could totally see it now that you've pointed it out! I think he could definitely have some Lab too, though I don't think he's all Lab - he just has this big, powerful, lumbering quality that I've never seen in a Lab, even the massive byb ones. You could be spot on with the coloring, though, his coat very much resembles the fox red Labs I've seen.

I agree with Ridgeback mix. In some of those pictures, he looks really jowl-y, which makes me guess away from Lab and more towards Mastiff. Or maybe Newfie, the long coat is recessive so a Newfie/Ridgeback cross would have short hair.

Or maybe some hound? I knew a bloodhound mix that had that "lumbering" quality. Maybe bloodhound/lab?

Wow! I had a black Lab/Rottweiler mix who looked just like him, except he was black!! The similarities are freakish! lol Looking at his head, and even the expression in his eyes, is like looking at Bob all over again!
