She's a doll, whatever she is! She has a very intelligent look in her eye. Brains and beauty!!

To me she looks like she has Jack Russel in her. The body sure looks like one. I am sure WDawson will be in soon and he can tell you. I am not sure what the other breed is but not thinking Shih tzu. Whatever she is she is a cutie!

Yep, I see jack in there too. She actually looks very much like a couple of dogs that belong to friends of mine... one of them is a jack/shih tzu, and one is a jack/pug. I definitely see jack in the body, hair and face though. Whatever she is, she's absolutely adorable!

Oooppss, sorry Tommysmom. I must have had a brain freeze when I typed that yesterday to forget about you and Tommy.

She looks like a JRT and Papillion mix

Come to think of it she does have the high energy of a Jack Russel Terrier..But I still can't explain the face the more i look at her she reminds me of a boxer but but that would be impossible for a bigger dog to breed with a small dog and have the puppy survive birth..

It wouldn't be impossible if the MOM was the boxer and the dad the jack... and I've seen large breed females lie down for a small male... where there's a will, there's a way! A lot of the jack/pug mixes have that look though, they sort of get the puggy type face but more elongated snouts. I guess it might be easier to tell as she gets older, but either way you've got one heck of a cutie on your hands right now... she's just adorable! You're going to have to post lots and lots of photos so we can keep guessing.
