    Mixed Breed Puppy- what do you think this is??? Doberman? Rottweiler? Labrador?

    Hello,
    I am considering adopting what I think is a female dobie mix from a local rescue shelter. Can anyone help me identify if this is litter is a doberman or a rottweiler mix? The shelter does not have information on her breed, she came from a litter of 8 pups, with half of them having dobie markings and half being all black.

    Photos of her and some of her littermates are posted here:

    I want to get a sense of what breeds she is, so I can determine if she's a good fit for our family.

    thank you VERY much, I really appreciate it!!
    Carolyn

    At this point, it's really too early to tell. I'd bet that they're a lab mix of some kind, truthfully.

    These are rottie pups:


    These are dobie pups:


    Looks like that pup could be a dobie/ lab mix. He/she doesn't have the rottie build or head.

    Thanks everyone! You know your dogs!!

    So I spoke with the shelter manager and she had some additional information on the litter. Turns out the mom was a black lab, and they don't know who the dad was. So KUDOS for calling out the lab mix in her, that's impressive!

    She also told me that they photos were taken at 7 weeks when they left their mom, so they're a little younger than I had thought.

    Thanks for your help, I'm going to adopt her. I look forward to seeing what she grows into. Whatever mix she ends up being, I'm sure to love her just the same

    p.s. the photos were great!

    I'd say that she was lab from her mom, and then her dad mighta been both dobie and rott.

    Congratulations on adopting her! She is SOO CUTE!! I pray that you guys will become BEST of friends!

    Hello again,
    Thought you might enjoy some pics of her at growing up. She's so lean and leggy we're thinking she's definitely lab/dobie. Whatever she is she's stolen our heart!

    Ah! She's gorgeous! Her markings are similar to Coco's, just black-and-tan instead of chocolate and fawn. Here's one of Coco at about 3 months.. she's a choc lab crossed with a german shorthaired pointer. For a long time I wasn't convinced about the pointer bit and thought she must have some dobie along the line, but she has grown up to have a pointer head!

    She's really gorgeous! She does look like a lab-dobie cross. She's so perfectly proportioned and marked that she looks like a new pure breed all together!
