    I know my girl is part min pin because the mother was min pin. But I don't know what the dad was because he was a stray and must of mated the mother while she got out the gate one day. She is 35-40 pounds, while the average min pin only weighs 8-12 pounds. Can anyone tell what she might be? 100_6820.JPG DSC09300.JPG DSC09299.JPG DSC09311.JPG DSC09314.JPG

    Not sure, she has a little shepherd look to her. Your vet could probably guess more accurately.

    And that could be possible! The weight size gets me though...I didn't think dachshunds were that big but then I've only known the minis

    She doesn't really look like a doxie to me.

    I say maybe some sort of terrier mix?

    she is more of a Manchester terrier look as a standard doxie the larger of the doxie would have shortened the legs and would have a thicker muzzle

    Funny, I was going to suggest Manchester Terrier. But being a mix and especially a stray, how common or likely is that? I don't know how common that breed is?

    Maybe mom was a manchester or some mix and not min pin?

    How big was mom?
