    Hey everyone I got this little guy as a 7week old pup from the humane society when i was volunteering. His name is Junior. He's 55 lbs and is about 11 months old. What breeds do you think are in his makeup? I'm very curious.

    Rottie definately - and I think I see some black lab in the facial features.

    Definitely some Rottweiler in him, and definitely something else too. I'm not sure what...

    Whatever you want him to be [​IMG]

    (Seriously [​IMG])

    If I had to guess, personally I'd maybe plunk for Rottie x some kind of hound. But, who knows. For example if you need him to have no Rottie or GSD blood, for homeowners insurance reasons, he could be officially regarded as a lab x hound. Actually I'd be surprised if there weren't more than just two breeds involved.

    As long as you're having fun and he's having a good home, that's what matters [​IMG]

    Good luck, have fun, good for you for adopting him,

    At 55lbs he's rather small. So I would guess he probably has a smaller breed in the mix. I would suspect Rottie/lab, Rottie/hound, may be a bit bigger.

    He sure is a looker [​IMG]

    If he were Rottie-hound the ears would be much larger and wouldn't airplane like that. He looks classic Rottie-Shepherd (substitute any one of the many shepherd cousins) to me. Rottie x something with upright ears and sable coloring, for sure.

    My first thought was Doberman/Hound with maybe some Lab thrown in.
