What kind of mutt am I?

This is Truman. We just brought him home from the shelter yesterday. His official paperwork lists him as an English Cocker Spaniel. Umm... I don't think that's right.

He's about 26 pounds, very sweet personality. Clearly, he stole those ears from a cat, and he looks a bit like a baby bear.

Cocker spaniel?

Looks to me like a lab mix perhaps. Sure is cute!

Very cute baby!!
He has a very "Shiba" like face, to me. I wouldn't doubt if there's a bit of it in there somewhere. Whatever mix he is... it's 100% adorable!

Looks like a black Kelpie to me , have you any clue how old he might be? If he's inexhaustable and wants to herd anything that moves, he's a Kelpie. LOL.

As far as we know, he's around 6 years old. He's a couch potato!
