Hi!

I posted earlier on the tail end of another post and probably shouldn't have. Sorry for the repeat! I'm new here!

So we are picking up our new dog on Saturday June 6th....she's a rescue dog from down South (Louisiana). They call her a schnauzer/bouvier des flanders mix. She looks like a labradoodle to me?

She's 8 months old and weighs 23lbs.

What do ya'll think??

We're excited! We had to put our beautiful lab of 13.5 years, Sadie, down about 7 weeks ago. My husband is a little hesitant, but I think it's definitely time to give a good home to a dog that needs it!

I have an appt with the vet on Tuesday for a check up and maybe he can shed some light on it too. I'll keep you posted!

She does look Schnauzer-ish, but I've also seen Lab/Poodle mixes that looked just like her. How big is she?

She looks small in the photo to me....they say she's 23 lbs. She's coming up here to Maine from Louisiana. She's in a foster home down there. I have an appt with our vet on Tuesday and maybe he can help determine.

She's a mystery our Stella!

If she's only 23 pounds at that age, she's not part Bouvier, LOL. Not even if mixed with a miniature Schnauzer. Might be easier to see what breeds could be in her if she gets a closer haircut.

I think you're right on the Schnoodle!!!! The Bouvier part was throwing me off because of everything I've read they keep mentioning how big they are....and to be 23lbs at 8 months....seems like Stella is going to be a small girl.

We pick her up in two days! Can't wait!!!! I'll post more photos after we get her home!!

Well Stella is here!!!!! We picked her up Saturday and she is wonderful!!!!! We are head over heels in love with her!

Still no idea what she is. She's small with long legs? Taking her to her first vet visit tonight.

She's so awesome I'm blogging about her!

I'll post again if the vet has any guesses as to what our girl is. I am leaning towards the schnauzer/poodle mix.

Where do you live? we have loads of bouviers in my town, I can think of 13 off the top of my head and know there are more that I have forgotten.
Wow, really? I live in New York. I suppose it could be a regional thing but I have honestly never even heard of someone owning one, even through the internet.

Will check out your blog Flamingo. I am an avid blogger of all things Marge so I always love to meet new people and follow their dogs' stories. :)
