Can you help me determine my dogs breed?

First time user, so hopefully the picture of him is on this message.

I would love to know what kind of dog Max is, he is about 10 months old. Any ideas?

I think i posted wrong, meant to start a new post not reply to someone else...oh well....

anyway, here is another pic of Max.

He looks like a cute mutt. :)
A mixed breed can come out looking like anything. My dad found a little puppy once that appeared to be a fullblooded lab....wellll...after it was grown up it was an obvious mix of whippet or greyhound and MAYBE lab.
Walnut looked like a little shorthaired australian shepherd puppy, and had floppy ears, now at 10 months she looks nothing like that (except the color), and has huge pointy ears, and a bushy german shepherd-like tail
1st pic -7 or 8 weeks old, 2nd pic at about 7 months (her ears didn't start to stand up until about 5 months, then they'd take turns flopping back over, lol)
She's a german shepherd/chow/aussie shepherd mix, can you tell? Probably not without knowing, she looks more like an australian cattle dog than anything.
Point being, unless someone knows for sure your dogs parents are a certain breed, he could be anything.

I think Max is a mix of cuteness and sweetness. :angel:

I am thinking maybe a cocker schnauzer mix, but definitely cute :)

i say Poodle/cocker spaniel:) very cute, looks like a miniture version of the dog I used to have. (she was Sheepdog/BC mix) and was the exact same colour as yours.

I'd say a shih tzu schnauzer... A Schna-tzu. Gazundheit.:D

I am changing my answer to poodle,schnauzer, cocker as the face did not seem quite to me from my earlier answer

the longer nose and curls in the coat suggest the poodle
the longer silky hair suggests cocker
the colouring/markings the schnauzer

I agree with the poodle, schnauzer spanial cross. the colour looks like schnauzer and the hair looks poodle spanial and his ears are too low for a schnauzer. Anyway what ever he is - he sure is a cuttie.

definatly schnauzer in that sweet face of his....

:thumbs up

I agree with shnauzer, I would say x with yorkie or silky terrier because of that grey mop on his head. He's cute.

August 2nd, 2006, 04:02 PM
I would have to say schnauzer/yorkie mix. My neighbour has one that looks just like your boy :)

Hey thanks to all that replied.........

I was told he was a Silky when i first got him..........and many people on the street and in pet shops, seem to think perhaps he is a mix.....
