Guess the breed

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
The family of my son's girlfriend found a stray a few weeks ago. After many attempts to find his home they discovered that the owers had moved and they have been unable to locate them. The flyers up have not been answered. So my son and his girlfriend have decided that they wanted him. Since they are both still in college we agreed to keep him until they have a place of their own.

Here are some pics. He is really sweet.

What breeds do you think he is? (of course he is a mutt)

I'm thinking Australian Shepard/Finnish Spitz mix?

I'm thinking he's a luvbug! What a beauty!

It's possible that he's German Spitz

Collie/Siberian Husky mix? Weird though, cos both are larger breeds but he looks small.. Guess I'm wrong then

Size wise we keep thinking part Sheltie. He is very light and small boned.

And he is a luvbug! He will throw himself on your lap and roll right on over for a tummy rub.

The first breed that came to my mind was finnish spitz. What a honey!

I still think he may be all German Spitz.
They come in three sizes and many colors Grossespitz (standard), Mittelspitz (small/medium), and Kleinspitz (small/dwarf).

I kind of doubt on the 'pure' spitz, but certainly he could be part; He's not nearly typey enough to be a purebred, even if he were a poorly bred one. They are also not 'that' common here in the states. From a dog breed\\german spitz site: "The German Spitz breed is quite a rarity, and it has not maintained their original popularity, even in Germany. "

I would be more inclined to think he is a mixture of Eski, Border Collie, and Sheltie...

he likely is a spitz just not one you think of/// Pomeranian is a Spitz...skipperkee is another spitz

Something in the Spitz family, like Pom is in there I think.

I think you all are right, defiently part spitz of some kind. His fur though isn't the real fluffy stuff, like on the pics of spitz's I have seen. Like on a chow, right? His is more thin, shaggy and long.

Sheltie X Huskey ????

Reminds me a little of a Keeshond mix we've had come in at the groomer.. whatever the case, adorable!
post #18 of 27
Norwegian Elkhound mix would be my guess as I have met one in person! What a beauty! http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/norwegianelkhound.htm they sometimes do have long hair. or keeshond. http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/keeshond.htm

I live in a weird area.... I know of three German spitz breeders in a 25 mile radius so here it is not a rare breed at all ...

I think a terrier and border collie mix. That was the first thing I thought when I looked at the pictures!

I disagree with these guesses. This dog doesn't have the same type of thick under coat as the Elkhound or Keeshond.

I saw a keeshound the other day and he does have the same markings on his muzzle. His nose is longer and thinner and his ears are way bigger. As you said, the coat not near as fluffly and poffy. But could be a part. Maybe keeshound, sheltie cross?
