Since they deserve and introduction of their own, here's my two mongrels.


This is Chief. It's not the most recent picture, but it's the best one I've got. He's around 13, and other than a healthy dollop of white on his chin you'd never know it. I took him in a little over ten years ago when his former owner married someone with allergies and he was banished to the yard. He's survived abuse, parvo and heartworms all before he came to me. Luckily he's had it pretty easy since then. Most of the time he likes his own space, but he can be a real sweetheart when it's time for attention.


This is Maya. She's about 5. I adopted her from our worst high-kill shelter where she came in as a stray. She was in such bad shape and so shell-shocked (for lack of a better term) that the staff, my husband and I all thought she was a shy senior. After a good bath and thorough vet evaluation she turned out to be a 9 month old diva. She enjoys destroying toys, demanding attention, and indulging in rabid zoomies.

Thanks!

I don't have any concrete knowledge on what breeds might be in there. I suspect Maya has a lot of boxer, but there's at least a few more things in there. She blows coat twice a year like a husky, but her coat is pretty thin and only has a dusting of undercoat. I'm tempted to think there's some bully breed or terrier in there too, based on personality. Chief is a complete mystery. He mostly looks like your average lab/shepherd mix except that he's only about 28 pounds. He also has a coat as thick as otter fur. I think he's likely from generation after generation of mutt.

My friend has the exact same breed. He is so funny as he follows his own tails sometimes and spin so rapidly....
