I'm Shadow; what am I?

Hello. This is my first post and I'm new to this forum. :D

I just adopted a dog about three months ago. His name is Shadow, and he is the sweetest creature I have ever met. Since I got him, my family and I have been trying to figure out what kind of dogs were his parents.
Here is his pictures:

Tell me what you think. I have been thinking he must be a Lab/whippet cross. But that may be a pretty random guess. He is black, and he has Lab similar ears. He has brindle in doberman-like areas on his body (around mouth, on legs and inside legs). He has a white chest which seems to have a little bit of whiteness that continues to his chin. He was a fairly deep chest that rises up to a somewhat small pelvic area. He runs extremely fast, and has caught up to a few rabbits since I have had him. Also, I dont know if it matters but every time he gets up he stretches his front legs, and when waking up stretches his back legs.

Anyways, I think i have said too much already.
THank you,

i guess the free webspace that i set up in the minutes before i made this thread doesnt like my usage.

i will work on finding another place to put my images. geocities frequently has issues with this too.

Shadow is very cute. He does look like he could be Dobie x Lab....??

Shadow is a cutie!! I definitely see Lab in there. He looks remarkably like my brother's dog, except for the white splash on his chest. We think my brother's dog is Lab/Dane?

After taking another look at the pics, he's got more brown in him that Jaco. Yeah, I agree with LuckyRescue - Lab/Dobi. Very handsome! :)

heeler's rock!

He's very cute!! The first thing that popped into my head is dobbie/lab cross. He has thesame goofy grin as labs, but the markings of a dobbie. his build looks quite doberman - ish aswell. As for the white splash on his chest, it could just be a colour mutation or maybe there's a third breed in there like border collie. Just a guess though.... :)

Dobie for sure, but I was also thinking Terrier (coat looks a bit rough for Lab/Dobie x).

Thanks alot for all the complements... and for the comments. I also thought dobie but he is a bit smaller than dobies or labs. He is just under 2 years so maybe he just needs to fill out a bit...

thanks again

ok how about these combos

german wirehaired pointer/lab


german wirehaired pointer/dobie




lab/dobie + some smaller white chested animal

edit: Shadow is only about 40-45lbs.
