We adopted a new puppy today, his new name is Sammy (Sam later) and he is just too cute for words. I'll try to upload a pic or 2...he was born 6-7 wks ago to a beagle mix mama dog who was dumped in a church parking lot in NC, picked up by someone and brought to a shelter, but that was a kill shelter, so a non-kill shelter brought her to their little place, she gave birth to 10 different looking puppies (different daddies?) and then were all brought by some kind hearted puppy drivers up to NJ. I saw his photo on our local shelter's website and facebook, (my daughter volunteers at the same place), and she came home Saturday gushing about this adorable little fluffy puppy she saw while she was working there. So I went yesterday to meet him and have them hold him for us in case my hubby said yes. He did -)) so I went early this am and got him. He's a real mix and I hope he gets really big. I want a Leonberger some day but the price of a pure bred one is just too hefty for us right now...So little Sammy has that look but will be smaller I think. What do you all think he could be? I'm thinking maybe Keeshond from the dad's side; his tail curls up and over his back somewhat. His coat is really fluffy and already course on the outer hairs. His tongue is not bluish at all so I didn't think Chow Chow mix. There were 10 puppies in the litter and 5 were bigger built and fluffy, 5 were smaller and short-haired. Some were predominately white and others were black and tan. Sammy has a creamy colored chest and a tiny white tip on the end of his tail. His paws are all lighter than his legs too.He weighs 8.5 lbs today at almost 7 wks. any ideas what he could be a mix of from your experiences? Thanks for reading this all...Lisa Our 6 1/2 yr old black lab mix Alex is meeting him in the 1st pic and he's wiped out sleepy in the 2nd pic.
