Hello Everyone,

Meet Moxy! We rescued her today from one of the animal shelters in our city. She's a 3 month old Lab cross. She was abandoned by her previous owner and was picked up.

We had been planning on saving our money for an English Bulldog but once we started searching the Humane Society website and other shelters we decided to take a trip to our local one and that's where we found her. So we're putting the bullie on hold for a while and saving this cutie.

Any ideas on what else she might be?

A picture of her teeth? I'll try to get a snap shot of her teeth for you Prin but she's squirmy and playful so it might take a bit of effort ha ha!

I'd have to go with lab/sheperd, she's identical to my Brina 3/4 lab 1/4 sheperd, and I'd give her 6 months

from http://www.geocities.com/Petsburgh/Zoo/1224/canineteeth.html


3-4 weeks Deciduous teeth coming in
6 weeks All deciduous teeth are in
3-5 months Permanent incisors coming in
5-6 months Permanent canines start to erupt and by end of 6 months are in
6-7 Last molar in lower jaw (M3) is in

Overall health and nutrition, sex, breed, and season of birth affect tooth eruption time. Females' teeth often erupt before those of males, and pups whelped in summer have teeth that erupt before those born in winter. All other factors being equal, teeth of large breeds of dogs tend to erupt more rapidly than those of small breeds. Some dogs, particularly those of small breeds, tend to retain their baby teeth as the adult ones erupt. These teeth have to be removed by a veterinarian when they prevent proper adult tooth placement.

seeing as your baby girl has all her adult incisors in place, she would be closer to the 4+ month old range IMO - what a pretty happy girl she is, too! :)
