Hi all
new to the site . hoping you can all share some expertise.

Trying to identify the breed of this dog. I assume he's a mix, maybe part terrier.
we found him at a highway stop on our travels and gave him over to a shelter. it looks like his owners weren't too eager to find him so we are likely going to adopt him.
would be great to have an idea of what type of dog this is.

thanks in advance.

not sure of his weight, getting a vet report soon. looks like we're bringing him home in a couple of weeks.
he looks much bigger in the picture than he actually is. i'd say around 20-25 pounds max.
apparently he's a baby. vet thinks about 6 months old.

thanks, he's a cute boy. originally thought st bernard as well but he's just not that big. I guess you never know.
To me he looked very much terrier, in his face anyway. Has anyone done a dna test? are they accurate at identifying multiple breeds?

thanks for the responses everyone. I'll likely do the DNA test just for fun.
I'm thinking he really looks like some sort of jack russell terrier. i know he looks huge in the picture, he's not that big :)
Maybe he's a JRT mixed with a bigger breed.
at the end of the day it wont matter, we saved a friendly little pup and we'll just hope he gets along well with our Golden Retriever. (fingers crossed)
