Any guesses on my dog's breed?

My husband and I have a Boston mix, but we have no idea what he is mixed with exactly.
We're guessing some type of bulldog?
Anyone?

LOL, that's an impressive nose shot looming up on my monitor screen. But I can't really tell a thing. Except he seems to have spidey powers allowing him to cling to walls and sit sideways and I think the breed that can do that is the NOrwegian Lundehund. Kidding.

Can you take some photos of him stacked? You know, the stance you see in show dogs? And reduce them and put them right side up?

Head alone is not enough to tell. We meet a dog of the improbable mix of German Short Haired Pointer and Sharpei. Head alone would never show you her GSP body. Her owner calls her Rhino Head and it's a very apt description.

I think I see some bulldog in there - but like the others....need to see that sweet body.

(I shrunk and rotated this image so we can see better).

My goodness, the nose is even more impressive right side up and fitting the viewing area. LOL, did you get a nose print on your camera lens?

Thanks Marko.

Hmmm, I'm not good on the bully breeds but I think I'll guess on the French Bulldog too. Frenchies have distinctive ears which this little boy does not seem to have but maybe he got the Boston ears? And the Boston legs? My final answer is..... Cute.

Sorry pappag but I have to agree on the long toenails. They seem to be so long they are forcing him to stand back a bit on his heels.
