    Hey I know you posted this well over a year ago, but I was searching (again!) cause it's killing me not knowing what kinda mutt I have & stumbled across this thread- she looks JUST like my dude, Swan! He's about 3?I live in philly, but my boyfriend was on tour w/his band and played a show in Houston and found my pup in the back of a junkyard - ended up coming home w/him, and we've had him since Jan 2010 - wanted to show you a few pics of him and see if you've gotten any more insight regarding what type of mutt they are - cause I think they're pretty closely related!


    Our vet suggested he definitely felt that he's part chow chow, and possible mastiff/ pit, but I think he's definitely some sort of shepherd (from his behavior, he loves to watch other dogs play from far away until he's ready to 'sneak' up on them! he loves to herd our cat around the house too, lol)...Any input? Your Harley is ADORABLE! Cheers! - Jess

    Oops! New to the site, thought my photo upload would work. Def think he's very closely related to your Harley, but not sure! Thoughts?

    wow - what *stunning* dogs!

    honestly, i don't know why ppl harp on the "purebred" theme so much when you can get such fascinating results from mixing it up!

    Bondjessbond, your dog definitely looks like some rotty in there. Possibly even 3/4. He looks very rotty. The brindle could be from alot of different breeds. But I dont really see another breed's characteristics in there

    Late on this thread! She's GORGEOUS!!!!!!! Don't see Heeler (I have a Heeler) but agree could well be Aussie/BC - she reminds me of Rakins, same lovely ears, coat and face and those EYES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi BondJessBond, sorry for the late reply! I have another thread in the "Meet The Dogs" forum, her name is Harley. You can see more pics to compare there. :)
    I'm convinced Harley is part English Shepherd. She has the build, coat, personality, head shape, many characteristics of an English Shepherd. Your boy looks Rottie to me in his head shape and overall size. He reminds me very much of my late Rottie/Pit mix, Rusty!

    I'll find some pics of Rusty and add them later. :) Your boy is very pretty!!
