    His gums are pink so that's the only thing that makes me think he may not be one. He may be a mix of one though

    I think this photo will help you see why you can never get a consistent answer (and why breed guesses are just that: guesses)

    This puppy is 1/2 Rottweiler (known mom dog) but even now that she's older, she still looks very much like a hound dog.



    You can always go with "All American Dog" or "Heinz 57" for your dog's breed

    What Shell said. If you don't know the parents of the dog, then you'll never 100% know what breeds are mixed in with your dog. To this day I still have no idea what my dog is. Her former owner told me she had tibetan spaniel, so that's all I have. I know she has at least 2 others mixed in, but there's just no way I'll ever know! Nothing wrong with having a Heinz 57.

    He is.
    You may never know what your dog truly is because no two mutts look the same. Puppies can change DRASTICALLY as they grow (ask CptJack about her pup, Kylie) and there's hardly any consistency with mixed breeds.

    You can either waste money on a barely accurate DNA test for fun or go by the guesses you're given.

    Were we summoned?


    This is Kylie at about 7 weeks old. Looks a lot like a border collie puppy, doesn't she?


    This is Kylie last week (10.5 months). What is she? BEATS ME! :P But it ain't a border collie. She weighs like... 13lbs, on a heavy day - and no, she doesn't carry her tail like that all the time. It's usually over her back or straight down.

    My answer to 'what kind of dog is that' is either 'cute' or 'mutt'. There's just no telling, but I honestly doubt either of her parents was a purebred. Based on her size, behavior, and appearance I can make some guesses, but it's CERTAINLY not just two breeds, you know? My guesses are more like 'sheltie/chi/beagle/jrt'. And that's the short list.

    Omg lol, what a difference. That's crazy.

    My hound mix was pretty similar from a pup to now lol...

    Totally a bluetick. My very very favorite hunting breed. I had two and loved them both.

    Haha thank you guys. It doesn't really matter to me what he is because I love him and his personality. From all the answers I think he's some type of Hound. He always sniffs around wherever he is too
