while on a walk, what breed would you think she was? I was just asked if she was a Maltese/poodle mix. I see the Maltese but not the poodle. I told them it was a good guess though,lol
here are pics I just took of her this morning.




She was just shaved not long ago but here is what she looks like in winter


P.S. When people ask what she is i just say an "good ol' American Mutt",lol.

ETA: She does have maltese in her. her mom was a maltese/beagle/ shi-tzu mix.

I'd think Maltese x Border Terrier, but then, we're probably a bad group to ask. The average person isn't too aware of most of the breeds, so anything with a black muzzle is a GSD, anything small and fluffy is a poodle, anything black and tan is a Doberman or Rottweiler and any hound is a beagle.

Most people think this is a Golden Retriever puppy.



In fact, when I told one guy that Kabota is 3 years old at least, he said, "No, he's not. He's a puppy, you'll see." Yeah, 7 months later, still the same size.

I was thinking three things: 1) Cairn Terrier Mix or 2) Catalan Sheepdog mix (I know they're rare, but that's immediately what I thought of after #1) and 3) Pyr Shepherd mix. I like the name and spelling for your dog. She's very cute.

Thank you!! Most people are surprised by her spelling but it's not as "original" as the M-A-Y spelling.

Haha I get people who think Jubel is a puppy quite often. Mostly I think it's because he's just happy and bouncy a lot of the time and people attribute that to puppies alone, others simply think he should be bigger so has to be a puppy. He's just under 50# and close to 4.5 years old. A few times people have thought he's older because he's got some white ticking on his muzzle, they think his muzzle is greying.

OP if I had to put forth a guess on Mae I'd only be able to say terrier mix.
