Default What else does Mikey have in him?

Hi,
I'm hoping you'll give me some feedback on what other breeds could be in him. It's the general consensus that he has some pit in him. I don't think he's all pit though. Not from the pics I look up online. He's from the local shelter. His tail has been docked. Temperment - stubborn, loving, loyal, faithful, hunter (can't leave him with bunnies), needy, whiny, VERY people/family oriented (not like Mav)...

Thoughts?

You think? Lab. Hmmm. Not sure about that. He's quite small. And when he runs you can see the power in his back legs, bow-legged kind of. Like other bulldogs.

I have another, funny, pic of him.



And I also wanted to mention that he's got quite short hair. He can't be outside for long unless he's moving (walks) and he gets freezy ears.

He could be a real Heinz dog! He has some Lab look, some Pit or Staffie (I'm more inclined toward the AmStaff than the Pit in his case), but it looks like he's trying to have an undercoat!

Great looking dog, wherever his parents came from!

Why do you say more Staffie than Pit? I'm curious. Maybe I'll tell people he's mostly Staffie. Probably get better reactions. He does have a bit of an undercoat. It's funny because I brush maverick (a whole ordeal) and then run the brush over Mikey's whole body and get less hair than one swipe on Maverick.

He also has quite loose skin. I dont' know if that means anything. I grab his neck skin and can almost cover his eyes with it. Is that a breed thing?

That head and face and your description of his temperament just point the ol' intuition at Staffie rather than Pit.

The loose skin is typical of the molossoid dogs. It's actually quite a defense. Something can bite them, but doesn't get anything vital and they still have enough manueverability within their own skin to be able to grab whatever has hold of them.

How old is Mikey, by the way, and about how big is he? Are his feet webbed?
