For the Dog Experts ... need help IDing Breed - June 16, 2010, 02:23 PM

Hey guys, lots of dog experts on this forum so I thought I'd give this a shot.

Anyone have any clue what kind of mix this dog is?
I'm considering adopting her, and the foster has no clue. They think she's some sort of Terrier / Chihuahua mix but really don't know. She doesn't have a Chi face or the skinny legs. Shes not yappy and already knows a few commands.



11 or 12 weeks. Under 6 pounds.

Thx

Possibly Shiba Inu in the mix.

You can actually get blood work done now to determine breed. You can order a kit (http://www.dog-dna.com/) or go to your vet.

Too small to be Akita or German Shepherd... It does look a LOT like the Shiba Inu but that's still a fairly rare breed...

It's say he/she is probably mostly Chihuahua. It's hard to tell with puppies what their breed is until they've grown and developed a bit more.

Shiba:

I agree on it probably being shiba. I bet full grown max 40lbs but think it will be smaller than that if the age and weight are correct. It definitely has something else in it and I could see chihuaha cause of the color. If it wasn't for the size I would say german shepherd/akita, . Thing is most adoption places have no idea of age or breed and just throw a guess out there. When I got my dog they told me she was probably Great Dane/Golden Lab and only 8-12 weeks old. Well she is full grown and only walks around at 50lbs. She was more like 18-20 weeks old. She is neither Lab or Great Dane. But to me it doesn't matter what type of dog it is as long as I like their temperment. If it already listens to commands and doesn't drive you crazy while it is that young I would say it sounds like a winner. If your looking for a big dog this isn't going to be it. Pay close attention to the paws cause that can be a great indicator of potential size. The dog dna is not a bad idea but I have known people that did it and the results came back inconclusive. So you may not find anything out.

Great input! Yeah looking at paw size, they estimate max weight of 20 lbs. They found her and 3 other littermates in a box at the steps on a Church so thats the best guess they can give =/

She is definitely full of energy and running around everywhere so I'm sure she'll drive me crazy for a while. However - she will respond to commands like sit and "no, no" when she is told to stop biting.

Potty training is another matter, but she does understand crate training so far.

Got my home inspection today to see if I qualify ...

Potty training is simple as long as you're consistent!
As soon as they get out of the crate, they go right out the door (reward peeing with treat).
After about an hour or two (depending on age), take them out again (reward peeing with treat).
If they slow down and start circling, take them out...
After feeding/watering, right out the door...


Good luck!! Puppies can be lots of fun and they can drive you crazy - good thing they're so damn cute!!

I definitely think its got a bit of chi in it. However 6 lbs at that age means it has a slightly bigger breed in its gene pool but it will likely stay pretty small. I'm guessing it'll end up being around 20-25lbs. All of the above guesses seem pretty reasonable though.
