Help IDing puppy breed(s)

Just got this girl from the shelter, she definitely looks like she has lab in her but any ideas on what else she may be?? She is black but has a little tint of dark brown in her coat when the light shines on it.
Thanks for any suggestions!

i was thinking boxer, but TD has a good idea too (i love playing the guessing game!!)

I thought pittie lab... The ear flaps of the lab on the ear base of the pitty might make them like that...

The tail looks pittie. And the face... Then again, what do I know about pitties!? :D

Yeah maybe lab pittie:shrug:

I have found the same colouring with a lot of lab mixes that I have seen. The dog we had growing up had the same colouring as that and she was a lab beagle mix.

From the first pic I wasn't sure but the second one, I would say maybe Am staff/lab...just going by the shape of the body...and the way the ears flop

I say lab mixed with 100% cute puppy. :D

I think Boxer too! the little wrinkles in the forhead and the tint of brown, and even the way the ears are set reminds me of a boxer (with out the drool lips :) )

Hmmmm.....too hard to tell. We'll need another 20 or so pictures.;) Sure is a cutie pie !!

I see Lab, Staffie, Shar Pei

I would have to agree with the lab/shar pei X, possibly something else in there. How old is she in the last pic.

All of the pics are from the same day, we think she is around 3 months but the shelter really did not have any conclusive info on her, she was dropped off by herself. She is very sweet, barks a little when she sees someone far away but is very friendly with people and animals with which she comes into contact.
She looks black but up close in the light there is a chocolate tint in areas. She has had some itchy skin problems but we are working on that with the vet. She does not have nearly as much hair on her belly and I don't know if that is a product of her itchiness because she bites at her tail and feet the most.

I have just been trying to figure her breeding out to satisfy my own curiosity and to determine what I will need to look for in terms of training her etc.

I appreciate all of the thoughts and ideas as to her breeding. The shelter she came from had a lot of Pit puppies but they did not indicate that she had pit in her. I am also befuddled by her ears!

She looks like a baby Jesse to me...
(they even have the same collar! lol)
