Hello! This is Griff, he’s about 13 wks and 20lbs. We rescued him when he had been turned into animal control with two broken legs after being hit by a car.

The rescue organization and initial vetting suggested he was a beagle mix...but he just keeps growing! We’ve also heard some say Rhodesian, boxer, GSD, lab or blood hound. Any ideas or suggestions? Obviously, we love him no matter what - we’d just love to have a better idea of what breeds he may have to better train him! So far, we know that he can run FAST even with a broken leg, he has a really strong nose but isn’t very good at following it yet (though he tries with his nose to the ground, adorably), and he has quite a voice.

I could believe boxer is in there. The most accurate way to tell is a DNA test, and even the best of those are constantly trying to improve their algorithms, so it's still not 100%, just a better guess than trying to go by looks, haha.

Real cutie, though! Thank you so much for taking him in and getting him the medical care and love he needs.

I'm only seeing a couple of pictures, but my guess would be Lab with something else (possibly several something elses), since he's got some sable coloration.

Cute pup.

I vote for Lab mix, check to see if he has webbed feet? Although he could be a Lab x German Shepherd mix [See my avatar/profile picture], I think his eyes are little different for a GSD mix. Since DaySleepers suggests boxer, I could believe a Lab x Boxer ...

He's super cute. Looks a lot like my dog. We THINK she's a Golden/Boxer/Lab. She's almost 9 years old, and weighs 66 lbs (SHOULD be 62). Your puppy is a little bigger than she was at that age, she was 16 lbs. at 13 weeks.
We did the DNA and it's a total joke.
This is my dog as a puppy and at 8 years old.

He DOES have webbed feet - what does that mean!? His ears are also changing these days....
