OK, so I got this puppy from a lady who says mom was a min pin, and dad was a poodle. However....I have my doubts. She has alot of dogs and I'm wondering if she didn't maybe miss one of them mating with her min pin before finding the poodle mating with it? The thing is that this puppy has absolutly NO poodle characteristics that I can see (I'm no expert) but is identical to some pics of Min pin Beagle mixes that I have found. What is your opinion?

I don't see minpin or poodle in your pup.
Might I ask why you chose to support this lady by buying a puppy from her?

you can ask, but I don't think I'll answer that. No need for controversy. Just trying to get people's opinion on the breed. Thank you for yours by the way.

Fair enough. Looks like a Shepherd mix, I hope you weren't expecting a small dog.

she's 5lbs at 3 months old. Never mind, think I'll just go get a professional's opinion. I promise you she is no sheherd, she fits in the palm of my hand practically.

yes, pictures can be deceiving. She looks a lot bigger then 5 pounds in that picture. There is only the edge of the deck to compare to and it is hard to say how low/high the edge of the deck is. She does not look like a Poodle mix to me.

I can see where the pic would be decieving. But I assure you, she is 5lbs and a few ounces. I put my profile pic up, she is next to my face and you can compare her that way if you'd like, but there is no way she's gonna be a big dog whether she has poodle or not. Guess I picked a bad pic for this one...lol

Yeah, I had problems with it too. See if anyone can see my albums. I posted a pic of her by a flower pot, and one with her toy, it's the smallest one of those toys that petsmart sells and she still has a little trouble grabbing it. Also the one of her and I is posted in the album as well. At any rate, despite what the pics look like, the scale says 5lbs. We went to petsmart yesterday and I stopped by banfield to use their scale for best accuracy.

Try again Locke... It is now

mcnees79 she is absolutely adorable but she still doesn't look poodle to me. She might change as her hair gets longer though.

She's definitely not a toy breed or toy breed mix like you were told. She's way too big to be that. I see some terrier, maybe shepherd or some other herder. I'd guess she's going to be medium sized. I see no min pin or poodle at all.

You can see the min pin in her, doesn't look like any poodle to me though.

Beagle maybe, with the white chest and paws, but could be something like a border collie too.

Who really knows though.. It might become clearer later on.
