If anyone knows what kind of breed this dog is please message me!!! I am an artist and i'm doing an illustration of this dog for a client. The owners said its some kind of Shepherd! I need more pictures of this dog, so if I find the name I can search the internet. Thank you so much!

The owners dont' know what kind of dog it is? It looks somewhat like a Belgian Malinois - maybe badly bred or mixed...JMO!

I would love to see some samples of your work. Do you have a website?

I can't believe that either LR.

Well it is a mix for sure.

Here is a pic of the breed LR was talking about.

Can't you just ask the owners?
It's sure a nice looking dog, whatever it is! I'd like to see pics of your work too, if you have any online. :)

OK - well I thought maybe Valhund, but that's not it. I did find this site of rare breeds though:

Besenji? Not sure how you spell that? Looks a lot like the dog that my aunt had many years ago. They don't bark - but yodel instead. You didn't say how big this dog is - but the one I am thinking about is about the size of a JR with bambi legs - so around 18 lbs???

I doubt it very much.... but maybe a Japanese Shiba Inu

Or a Norwegian Bushund [friend has one]

Or simply a mixed breed:D

I think for sure it would be a mixed breed, although it is kind of hard to tell when your not there in person.
