Is it a young Beauceron?
I love their ears! I don't get the whole ear cropping thing...Yeah, it's a Beauceron:
At least I didn't use a picture of a merle one , I think their ears are pretty unique when combined with the black and tan, but I guess you could be tripped up if you have only seen pictures of them with cropped ears.
I think they are gorgeous dogs... Never seen one in 'real life' though but there is a dog we walk with sometimes that is similar looking... It has no wolf in it and is a permutation of german shepherd. Everyone we meet when I walk with them think it is a wolf but he is the softest most playful dog. I will have to take a pic to show you.Congratulations Anneke!
What a beautiful dog, I've never seen one before.
Hey Running Dog we were half right, we got the 'wolf' part right
Just googled to find out more about the breed. LOL no wonder Anneke got it right, they're from the Nederlands.
Doubt they'd be allowed into this country, being part wolf, which is a shame. I kept thinking that tiny piece of photo looked like a German Shepherd in Wolf's 'clothing' - and I didn't know they were bred as a cross between those two breeds.
This is a fun competition and we all learn something too.
