Hello,
We recently got a puppy at our local animal shelter. She's very friendly and gets along well with our kitten. According to the staff at the animal shelter she's about 7 weeks old. We were curious if anyone recognizes what sort of mix she might be. Here are some pictures:

(These aren't gross pictures!!! Like some that were recently posted!)

Thank you in advance.

She is SOO cute, but she has gross fingers growing out of her tummy!
My first thought upon seeing the pictures was that she has some German Shepherd in her and maybe Chow Chow too.

Holy cow, is she ever cute!
At that age, and w/o knowing her size, it's really hard to tell what she might be. In a few weeks, you'll have a better idea of whether or not her ears will stay down, or *** up. She's definitely got a sableing factor to her coloration, which could point in many directions. She's got a cute, dark mask, which could be anything from a mix of German Shepherd, or Boxer, or Akita, Malinois (that's where your ear factor will help play in). If she's little, it could be Lhasa Apso, or Peke, or I'm sure lots of other breeds/ breed mixes that have that masking.
I can't explain it, but I think of Australian Shepherd when I see the face photo of her...maybe? Who knows! :-)
She is VERY cute, though!
Please keep us posted on photo updates as she grows! Her baby photos remind me of when my Coda (a Collie/? mix) was a baby. http://www.geocities.com/shellybrosnan/bbcoda.html (The two very young ones)

Thank you so much for your reply! Your Coda is a cutie too! I love seeing such sweet pictures. Thank you for all your ideas on possible mixes. It will be interesting to see what she grows up to be. We'll post more pictures so anyone interested in following the mystery can do so. :-) Thank you again,
Sophie

she's incredibly cute! Shelly mentioned that she's sable, but it looks more like light brindling to me. it's hard to tell from the photos you posted, though. she looks an awful lot like elliott did when he was a puppy.

elliott is Pit Bull x Chow (according to the resident canine genetics expert, Liisa, there's something else in there, too, to account for the long hair). he's a big love and couldn't be sweeter if he tried.
