This is Atlas. I rescued him from a local shelter near the end of January. He is 3 months old in the first picture, and getting close to seven in the one with the cat. He is currently pushing 65-70 lbs. The shelter had him listed as a Rott mix. I can see the Rott part but not the other breed. Any ideas?

Looks more like a lab or a lab hound mix maybe.

Yeah--lots of breeds come in black and tan, including off-standard labs as well as hounds! I second lab/hound.

I looked at the pic before reading the post, and I thought lab mix. Maybe rottie. But I really see lab.

He looks very much like Benny ... a 4 week old puppy I rescued last year. Benny's Mom was a Dobie/Lab mix for certain ... and his Dad was a possible Rott/Husky mix.

Benny was 10 weeks old in this picture. He weighed 30 pounds at 16 weeks old. He is now between 75-80 pounds as a year old pup.

Oh he's a handsome dog!
These were taken the day I brought Atlas home from the shelter.



And these I took today.

Oh my!!! He is gorgeous too! I am going with Rott/Lab/ mix as my guess for Atlas. :)

Yea the length of his mouth and the way his jowls droop a little are what make me think that the Rott part was right.

I'm actually thinking Bernese Mountain Dog/Lab. Something about his face and eyes looks Berner to me, not Rott.
