SPCA Pup, whats in it?

The family got a new pup at the local spca, cute little thing, bout 10 weeks old. The most they could tell us about possible breeds is it contains some black lab. Anyone have any opinions on what might be coursing through this pups veins.

Thanks

What a cutie!! It's so difficult to tell at that age what they are, because they can change so much as they get older.

I"m glad this adorable baby got a home.

What a cutie pie! I'm thinking maybe some hound, with those adorable ears? Can't really tell, and probably won't be able to until he's older. Very sweet, though!! Good for you for adopting!

His tan coloring makes me think part German Shepard and those eyes could be part Hound dog. I would call him a very adorable Heinz 57 who is lucky to have found a great home.

I was thinking GSD and beagle as well with those eyes and stuff. But no matter what he is just plain adorable.

I agree with shepherd/beagle mix, my Gertie looked so much like this pup when she was young.....check out her pics...2 as a puppy and 1 at 11 months...

Iggette I think Boomer's pup has beagle and gsd in it. The snout looks a little different. All are cute.
