I play this game with my dogs all the time because I have so many mutts. I have learned that it is quite impossible to tell what they really are! My dog Nigel is a confirmed Bloodhound/Saint Bernard mix, but you cannot see the Saint in him, however his brothers look like Saint Bernards and not a smidge of Bloodhound! You never know what genes are going to show through.
Looking at you guy, I see some hound probably, and maybe shepherd, but the truth is probably that both parents were mixed breeds!!!

Do I know this story well.  ::)
He actualy looks like he might have some pit in him from the shape of his head and white paws. I can definately see GSD...I love his floppy ears!
I have two littermates on this site and you'll notice they look NOTHING alike(their personalities are like night and day as well). Their mom is pit/german shepherd and dad a samoyed. Luke had outgrown both parents by about 6 months and we were a little confused for a while too. Since then we've resigned to the fact that we'll never know exactly what they are....and that just makes them more special and unique!  ;D

Aspen - Pyr/Malamute mix

Ya he looks nothing like his mother did. I never thought of pit but thats an idea. Not a mean bone in his body, but he does prefer women over men. He his sooo attached to me too. I try to love on him as often as possible! Hes spoiled rotten

Yeah, I can also see a shepherd type breed.  Maybe some lab/golden in there too.  And since he's so small, perhaps some terrier, or even beagle.  Something a bit smaller anyhow.
