    He's about 8 weeks old. Vet thinks he'll end up around 70#. His mom looked like she had some pit in her. Vet doesn't think so.

    he looks to have some big feet and will likely be 70lbs. I wonder if he has lab in him, right kind of hair and ears

    My guess is a pit-shephard-pug cross.

    since the mom was a mix then a lot can throw off different looks. Do you know what his siblings looked like?
    He does look, lab-pit mixish. Could have boxer too. if he has any shepherd I would say a very small part. I have seen adult mutts like him around these parts. They are all great dogs. [​IMG]
    He is one cute pup. Congrats.

    But...I look at where he came from - neighborhood, area, and what dogs are commonly running around in that area loose, impregnating female dogs.

    He looks like he has some mastiff in him maybe great dane and his eyes look like Norwegian ridgeback?
    How old is he now and how heavy?
    Beautiful boy love the eyes.
    The clinic I work for has just started doing blood tests that can identify most of the breeds your dog has in it.
