id say theres a storng possibility that theres pitbull in there, the eyes and ears scream mal, the muzzle and color could definatly be pitty...

is there any reason it realy matters? if shes a good dog and you love her it doesnt...and if anyone asks and your worried about the stigma, just tell them shes a mutt...your not lying...
both belgians and apbts need a firm but kind and VERY persistent hand when training, both are strong driven dogs with a strong work etihic and desire to please thier humans...
so its not like her being part pitbull would change the methods which you would have to train her.

she is adorable BTW!

The third picture looked just a little bit like a pittie around the eyes to me, until I enlarged it and then it didn't. She could be though.
She's very cute, whatever she is.

Heh....just looking at the thumbnails my first thought was Thai Ridgeback.
Then I enlarged them, and no, of course not.

Guesses are much easier with full-body pics....that cross is certainly plausible, especially since she's a puppy and who knows what her magnificent ears will end up like after she's done teething! (Ears can get fairly ridiculous during teething.) Her ear cartilege looks sturdy enough that she may well remain prick-eared, which isn't typical of either a pit bull or a Mal.

She is a very cute pup, what's her temperament like?

IMO the eyes look Pit-ish, and so does the brindle coloring - but the ears/face look kinda like a Belgian. So that sounds like a good guess to me! Cute little pup.

Beautiful Bella! As long as she is happy and healthy, I wouldn't worry about her "breed." She does look like she has some pittie in her, especially her eyes.

Congratulations to both of you. Enjoy each other!
