Labra, I KNOW! Not that I care that much about his breed, but it's so fun to try to pinpoint something. By default, there's probably shepherd, pit bull and "lab" (the smallish black dogs with whip tails and thin coats that people here call Labrador Retrievers) in him because that's in practically every mutt born on the streets here. A friend suggested Dutch Shepherd, and as far as his body goes, he DOES resemble one (though with a heavier, more masculine looking head)... but that seems a way exotic for a pound puppy.

Jess, he's getting broader in the chest every day, it seems. I'm definitely seeing a mastiffy look to him, but he just doesn't have the SIZE.

Thanks guys for the input! I should do one of those DNA tests for him, LOL

LOL @ the DNA tests. If its for fun go for it, if you are doing it cause you really want to know.. well our guesses will likely be as accurate. (well or at least close, and free)

LOL, Dekka, I know. I have a friend who sent in a test on her Border Collie and it came back as an Aussie/Chihuahua mix.

Akita! Interesting. What makes you guys say that?

Akitas have a color pattern like that...black overlaying silver fawn...with the black face. It's not an overly common pattern in other breeds that I have seen. he may break more of the underlying color as he gets older. Akita's with that color are usually born black and start breaking color around late puppyhood...some are almost totally fawn by adulthood...but many remain quite dark. The Japanese call it 'Kuro-Goma'.

The cheekiness...and he gaits very similarly as well.

This dog is a known confirmed Akita/Lab...and you can see that the Akita is hard to see..it does not alwas carry thru strongly...the temperament certainly fits as well.

Oooh Hounded that's interesting, thanks! I've always wondered where that coloration could've come from, because it doesn't seem entirely GSD...
