So this isn't a serious thread, but I thought it interesting. I'm not sure what breeds this dog is. I've never seen this coloring before that I remember.

I have seen a dog with brindle points in both the black/tan and chocolate/red colors. However this one seems to fall more under the "sable" type where the pattern isn't fully expressed lending to the darker saddling. He is pretty though!

I like it!

I've never had a brindle dog, but I've always loved brindle.

The saddle on this one is really cool .

My guess would be a Pit (APBT), maybe mixed with a bit of Aussie - would explain the stumpy tail (or do they dock Aussies?) and "sable" coloring, though Pits do come in many colors. Cute dog, whatever he/she is!

At first glance, I thought, Neopolitan mastiff.
But no. Too small, and no tail.
I think there is Pit in there, but the size of of the head does so remind me of a Neo.
Plus I've seen mahogany Neos.
Here is my brindle, Elwood. Elwood is a regular brindle, but he has a littermate who is a reverse, dark over light--very striking.

aussie tails come in all sizes so they dock. but mine has a tail
the colors and layout of colors reminds me of a sight hound, but the body doesn't. It's a gorgeous dog!

"Brazilian cherry." hah--I wish.
It's just engineered wood, and look to the left of Elwood, where it is all scratched up by my dear pet. My dog and cat do match and it is funny but it certainly was accidental. I'd love another kitty but my husband, not so much.

Back on topic, that really is a cool-looking dog, and I can't help but think that there is Neo in there somewhere. But I understand how, with the tail and color pattern, some would see Aussie. Or maybe Rottie influenced the size of the head and tail, who knows. Regardless he is indeed gorgeous.

If I had to take a guess I'd say Pit/Boxer mix...but either way really pretty.
