Wanna play Guess the breed?
« on: July 23, 2008, 04:32:59 pm »
So a fellow rescue friend of mine pulled a VERY pregnant momma from a kill pound. She had her pups a day later. She looks like a beagle mix. Small, about 20 pounds. You can see her with my son in the first picture. I also attached some pics of the pups close up for your review! They are 17 days old in these pics. What the heck!? One of them looks like a saint bernard!!!! She has 2 black and white, 2 brown and white, and one pure black. Compared to her they are huge!!!! Any thoughtS?

Here are my thoughts:

1. your son is adorable - love his spiderman pjs!!
2. The little girl is precious, too. Is she yours?
3. Mama definitely looks like a beagle mix - maybe with cocker spaniel??
4. I want to scoop those puppies up and make them mine!! I agree, though - it's tough to tell when they're so young. Depending on the breed, the coloring can even change dramatically as they mature. My initial feeling? Some kind of shepherd. Just a hunch.

Whatever kind they are very cute. I would guess some kind of spaniel because of the ears. Maybe a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel for part.

I agree on mom being a beagle mix. Actually she looks like one we have at work right now.........sa me colors and everything (and she's a purebred)
Can't help ya on the pups, maybe when they are older.  That last pic though has a terrier look to him. I doubt they are, b/c of their size but that's just what the last one looks like to me.  Who knows, could be multiple fathers so multiple breed possibilities.  :-\

I'd love to see pix of them as they're getting older though.  The kids are cute too.   ;)   ;D

Man this is fun!!!! Yea, I will post pics as they grow up and we can see who was the closest at playing the "guess the breed game"!  I do get to claim the kids though.. they are mine.  Thanks for the compliments. I think I'll keep them :) I had a hard time getting them out of there, they wanted to take them all home (of course so did I!) My friend is concerned, when she lists them on Petfinder she has no clue what to put as a breed! I told her it was like Forrest Gump and his box of chocolates - you never know what your going to get. Maybe we should name them all chocolate names... Godiva, Hershey, Dove, ... help. I need 1 more female and a male chocolate name! (4 females and 1 male total)

How about Cherry or Nuget if you're talking about what's inside.

The pups look very similar to my friends Springer Spaniels when they were that age. Put me down for Springer. :D
