nope and nope! he looks even more like a wolfhound now that he's grown though, especially when he's had a haircut.

Lab x poodle.

No idea on the shepherd. Looks mostly shepherd to me! Although in the shelters here they will often label pit mixes as "terrier" mixes...American Pit Bull Terrier...it's a stretch. Personally, I think it's deceiving and people should know if they're adopting a pitty. But that's what happens.

I love Flat Coats. So often people guess that they are black lab mixed with Golden retriever, but if you really know FC's, there is a difference.

In my experience shelters' breed depictions can be awfully random or even dubious, but I guess that's just the way the system works.
Our pound puppy "Irish Setter" turned out to be half-Vizsla half something else.
We found out what she was the same way you did.


Wewill, I have no idea what the other part of your pup is, she sure looks German Shepherd to me. If you were really curious I guess you could do that DNA test.

Groar, I am stumped. The first pic looks totally like a Portuguese Water Dog, and the second one like an Irish Wolfhound, or a curly-tailed Giant Schnauzer.

ok, he is 100% for sure a standard poodle/english bulldog mix! my friends got him from a rescue which got him from a puppy mill which accidentally allowed that breeding.

the funny thing is, he looks a lot like my dog, who is who knows what mix but probably not that.

here they are together:



her owner said that at first glance, the only way she could tell which dog was hers in the picture was that hers was ignoring the person/camera and chewing on a stick!

so anyway, that just goes to show that sometimes even a very distinctive looking breed in its immediate ancestry will not be obvious in a dog's appearance. and looking at "boodles" online, it seems like this dog is actually pretty typical looking for the mix.

and i don't think it's inaccurate to call a pit mix a terrier mix - pits are terriers! but yeah, it is kind of glossing over a "breed" that has a social stigma.

oh and i've heard that the dna tests aren't very accurate at all. and they straight up won't tell you if your dog's mix contains any of the pit bull breeds (which most mixed breed dogs, especially urban ones, do to some extent). i'd consider doing one for fun if they were cheaper, but i wouldn't put much stock in the results.
