He is absolutely adorable!!! He looks like a mix of lab and pit (both exceptional breeds if raised properly). If I could morph my daughter's roommates dog (pit) with our previous lab he would look like this. His ears definitely resemble lab and his face/snout looks like pit along with his body and paws. However like others have stated it is hard to truly tell when they are small pups. If you desire to keep him I truly hope it works in your favor because he is such a cutie!!!

Did anyone suggest testing for a chip? I just skimmed some of the posts so I may have missed it. Most pet dogs have a chip in their ear that identifies the owner. Usually the local pound can scan it for free.

He sure is cute. Hopefully your vet can help with breed identification. Sometimes they can sometimes they can only guess. I would not keep any dog that is part pitt, too many bad experiences. I ahve enocountereed some that are sweeter than sweet and others that seem sweet right until they attack. Check with your city. Pitts are illegal in some places.

My family fosters puppies. We got a litter that was thought to be pit/lab mix. One of them looked like a beautiful red-nose. We got them at 4 weeks old, and two of them, including the red-nose had parvo. The first pup didn't make it, but we were able to nurse the red one back to health. Of course, after that, she was mine! I decided to have her DNA tested, just curious what she was besides pit. She tested absolutely ZERO for pit or lab. Her primary breeds are doberman/rottweiler/boxer/GSD/dogue de bordeaux. I was surprised until I looked up pictures of red dobies with uncropped ears, and saw the strong resemblance. I love pits and would have been perfectly happy if she was pit. However, with laws and prejudices being what they are, I wouldn't identify a dog as pit, unless you were absolutely certain.
