What breeds are in this dog?

I saw this dog on Petfinder and she made me go "awww!" I'm curious what breeds might be in her ancestory?



Here's the description:

Quote:
My ancestry is a bit of a mystery; maybe Pointer, maybe Labrador, maybe something else too. I have spots on my ears and a few very faint ones on my back, but other than that I am all white and all beautiful. I am not even a year old, still a puppy in a lot of ways and still growing, but I am housebroken and really quite well behaved for my age.
(Personally I would've thought white + faint spots = dalmation mix, but what do I know!)

I don't know for sure, but I would've thought some Dalmation was in there, too. Her face reminds me of my Bronny-girl(lab/rott). Something in the shape of the face and the set of the ears.



What a sweetie, though.

I thought maybe some pittie at first, too, but I'm almost always wrong when I guess pitbull is in a dog.

I thought pittie too . . . something about the head. The ears remind me of labs or dalmations.

Aww, this guy's definitely part lab. Curse you, Petfinder, for showing me adorable dogs I can't have!



Wow, these two dogs are BROTHERS! Just goes to show the variation you can get in a litter!

Pogo... you laugh but the Argentine Dogo people who are active in rescue and are called on to identify & pull dogos from shelters often post photos of dogo mixes (the most common being Dogo and Pit, hence the name "pogo") and really, this dogs bears a strong resemblance to some of the mixes i've seen... body color, size, type, facial bone structure, ears (many dogos have spots too, specially the mixes), etc... but i could be totally, completely wrong too

I'm sorry if this is . Prin, your yellow lab comment made me think of Chance, our neighborhood yellow lab. He was about 100 lbs of nothing but love. Unfortunately his parents didnt' take good care of him. He spent about a week here once. We didnt' know where he came from. He was very protective of our house and sweet. He knew all his basic commands and would obey them from ME, a stranger!! Unfortunately he killed one of my neighbors chickens once and she runs the local animal control facility. uh oh... so she had him picked up. He would also try to hump my children. Not good. But he was sooo sweet and loving and with some good training would be a great dog. I found out the owners moved today and hope he has a better life, but will miss that little...er, not so little feller. for the

My guess was going to be Ambull and lab, but who knows really. The dogs personality might give some clues too.
