    Here is my rescue German Shepherd mix. I've had him almost 2 years now. What do you all think he is mixed with? He came off a near-by Indian reservation and has A LOT of wild tendencies, including hunting. I want so bad to do the DNA testing, I just haven't had the spare cash yet... So gimme your ideas!

    A whole bunch. Most dogs I've seen come off established reservations are mixed to the core - shepherdy-retrievery-chowy-husky-pitty and add as many more as you'd like. They all look like him, some larger some smaller.

    I think the dog DNA tests are a waste of money - he looks like a good dog and the fact that his conformation is so plain and moderate (think "grade" horse) shows that the many mixes came out pretty well.

    He looks like what we call around here a 'Farm Dog'. A mix of popular breeds of the area and other mixed breed dogs. If he's a good one, he's a good one.

    husky little rottweiler pitbull possibly some chow and australian shepherd. my grandpa has a australian shepherd that looks almost exactly like that. i think the aus. shepherd was crossed with a lab and chow mix. i think that i what he is too. should be a good dog......

    Another vote for "a whole bunch" [​IMG]

    I have read that the DNA testing is pretty unreliable. Personally I'd save my money for something useful [​IMG]

    Good luck, have fun, handsome dog [​IMG]

    I think I see some rottie in his skull. Rottie mixes also tend toward that sable color. I would guess either rottie husky or rottie shep with a bunch of other stuff mixed in.
