Question anyone know what kind of dog is in the new beneful dog commercial?

Hello, I am a dog lover, in between pets now, an old pal passed away three years ago, and I am finally ready to get a puppy.

I absolutely adore that dog in the new Beneful dog food commercial. Does any one know what kind of dog he is? I love that dog! Is he a terrier? Or terrier mix do you think?

THinking of getting a puppy, maybe a Benji type, or Shih Tzu. I love the cute, fur ball, scruffy look of a dog. I saw some awesome teddybears.

I have had large breeds in the past, Norwegian Elkhound, and SHepherd mixes. But I have an 8 year old and want something smaller now.
any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Dee

Err nevermind were talking about two different dogs.

I think he's most likely a Jack Russel mix.

He does look like a Jack Russell mix but PLEASE think long and hard before getting a dog like a JRT. They aren't for everybody.

Do you mean the one on the commercial or the one on the Beneful plastic container?

Check out www.petfinder.com !! You can literally find a dog of any personality/appearance/age on Petfinder, and they are all good pups looking for good homes. It's where I found my Fozzie. Most people that meet him are amazed that we found such a sweet, precious, well-behaved puppy in rescue...but there are countless beautiful dogs out there waiting for a loving home.

Besides that, getting a dog based solely on appearance is not a wise choice, I'm guessing you are just curious about the breed though. I have no idea which dog you're talking about, as I strongly feel that Beneful is one of the poorest quality & most deceptive kibbles on the market =/ so I can't say I pay any attention to their ads.

Anyway - if you are talking about the one on the container - that is definitely a briard. NOT for everybody...I agree, please look into adopting. The one on the commercial was most likely a mix, anyway.

A hyper-active dog such as the JRT, or most other terriers, probably wouldn't be the best idea for an 8 year old. In fact, small dogs are never a good idea for small children. THe smaller the dog, the more easily a child could hurt it.

Would you consider a more medium-sized dog?

The smaller the dog , the more chance the child could get hurt !

If she is extensively socialized as a pup (all pups should be!), lives in nice conditions, and has non-aggressive parents than that is certainly not true!
