Another "Guess My Breed"?

This is Minnie... a neighbor got her from a woman on Craigslist and then a few days later ended up in hospital and is now staying with her parents out of town... and so we've "inherited" Minnie. We're told she's about 5, she weighs about 6 pounds, so she fits right in with the other Mini-Mutts.

At first we thought she was Yorkie/Chihuahua mix, but more and more I don't really see any Chihuahua except for the ears and maybe the tail. The super-stocky build, scruffy hair, and BOUNCINESS (oh yes, she BOUNCES) are starting to suggest something a little more like a Jack Russell or rat terrier.

We're planning to order a DNA kit (same one we got Groucho) but meantime... anyone care to hazard any guesses??

Is she soft or wiry? She looks a little schnauzer-y to me. She's adorable, whatever she is, though!

REALLY wiry... almost like a boot brush

You can't see it in these, but she has soft tuft of long grey-ish hair on her head, very much like Groucho's

No idea but I would like to say, You are a fabulous photographer. Is Molten Images your own company? These and Groucho in your other thread are breath taking, they are so clear. You don't just take a good photo but I get a sense of personality from both dogs. Very, very nice.

AAwwww thanks *blushing*. Molten Image is my own... well, trade name, I suppose. I've use the name for a couple different ventures in the past, but at the moment I'm just a "serious amateur" with the photography.

You know, looking at her markings... she actually has very Min-Pin-like coloring. The ears look a lot like Min-Pin too. Hmmm...

Thinking there might be some Jack Russell in the mix, too... the way she runs and hops and spins are very reminiscent. She's got that stocky build.

Well, I think we'll be ordering the DNA kit next payday (same one we got for Groucho)...
