Another "What am I?" thread...

My brother adopted this fellow from a rescue group last year and we're not exactly sure what he is. We have an idea, but I'd like to hear other people's opinions/thoughts.

"Blue" is approx a year old now and weighs around 70 lbs. He measures 25'' at the shoulder and is a very "waggly" dog with a huge desire to please.

Here are some pics going from oldest to current:

Thanks!

More pics! In the last one, he's the dog with the stick in his mouth - his tail is always curled like that and he has white on his chin, chest, toes, and tail tip.

I think mostly Lab, with a bit of Husky there.

He looks like a sharpei/lab mix to me. What a handsome dude!

Interesting to hear everyone's opinions! It's funny, we originally thought shar-pei / lab cross since he has a funny wrinkle on his forehead that's gotten less noticeable as he got older, but lately people have been calling him a pittie X. I was wondering where he got his ears from...they don't look like pitbull, lab, OR shar-pei ears, do they??

catlover2 - the husky would explain his curly tail!

He also has the thickest legs I've ever seen on a dog! He weighs the same as my retriever cross, but his legs are twice as thick - and he has cankles!

I would say very cute but those ears are the right shape for a Shar-pei and I see lab as well but I go with sharp-pei lab
