He looks nothing like either of those two.... Well maybe a little. The guy kept saying he was a miniature schnauzer. It really doesn't matter he is a love!! I just can't picture what he'll look like when he's big

I think his legs will always be short , what does your vet think this? I think he is a very lucky dog to be so well loved . I think it's funny that he is waiting for you will you take a bath. Marty was getting into the tub when I as taking a shower .

You could get a DNA test to find out what breed your dog is. I am not sure what my dog Marty is mixed with . He is a mini poodle mix.
