Default The great Zaphod mystery

So I'm stumped on this dog, lol. I think I might have an idea of his breed mix, but I wanna know what you guys think, first. Now that I have decent pictures of him not looking scrawny.

Zaphod's under a year old. He's about 26" at the shoulder and 65lbs, though technically he should probably be around 70-75. It doesn't seem like he's done growing.

His temperament is.. odd. It's changing so much right now that it's hard for me to pinpoint anything except he has a strong desire to protect what he thinks is his. I don't like using the "D" word but he's very dominant, and a little pushy with other dogs. He hates strangers, though I think that's probably due to a lack of socialization more than inherited temperament. Nevertheless, he's not an affectionate dog with anyone but me.

He's high energy and fairly neurotic if he isn't sufficiently exercised.

Guesses?







His movement at a trot is kinda different, you can't really see it in this picture but this gives you an idea of his movement.

This is an awful picture but it gives you a decent idea of his front assembly.

My guess is a very big version of the "Border Stack" http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/b/borderstack.htm That 3rd picture reminds me so much of him.

Or maybe some Great Dane?



O/T: Let me know when you find out date for NC

I see Shepherd... Seems a little small for a Dane.... Right about the hieght to have some German shepherd in him.... Maybe a GSD, boxer/dober/ some other short haired breed....

Purebred mutt. Seriously. I have been staring at the pictures and couldn't pin point a single breed. I don't see Lab, unless it's way back in the generations. Too long in the legs and not enough substance.

So, he has me stumped.
