I asked a while ago for help guessing what breeds make up my gorgeous mut, Bella, but didn't get any responses. Now that I've been taking her to all of my obedience classes, people are driving me nuts asking what she is!! The only things people have said are coyote and german shepherd. lol So some guesses from you guys would be great!

She is beautiful and she definitely looks to be part shepherd but I am not sure what else. How big is she? What breeds have ears like hers that would mix with a GS?

She's not very tall. I'd say as tall as a pitbull and she's about 50 pounds. The only other dogs that I can think of with ears like that are too small to be bred with a shepherd. lol

If the ears weren't so pointy and she was taller, I would say she was a shepherd/blood houndy. Those ears are something else, though!

Ibizan hound?
Highly unlikely on that part, it's a very tight knit community. The ears are shaped differently and she would most likely be taller and more svelte than she is.

Have you ever heard of the breed Pharaoh Hound? That's what I'm thinking...they've got those ears and bella's face reminds me of them as well.
Im going for Pharaoh Hound x German Shepherd. About the size the Pharaoh Hound stands between 21 to 25 inches I think. if this doesn't fit there must be something else in her as well lol.

I'm with everyone else..German Shepherd and something.

He doesn't look at all like a Pharaoh Hound, even ignoring the fact that it would be highly doubtful that a not so common breed would be out producing mixed pups.

I don't think pharoh at all doesn't look anything like one and they are very very rare.

I'm thinking there is.probably way more than 2 breeds in your dog.

:suspicious: I dunno.. we had one at our shelter last year (very small, rural MN) She was picked up by a rescue, and they're usually pretty stingy about taking dogs outside of their chosen breed.
