Can anyone tell me the breed on this dog that we got from the shelter.....??

I am leaning toward a German Shorthair, but it might be mixed with something else.

It looks to have some Setter, maybe some lab and possibly some sort of herding dog.

If you want just one breed, I would guess Classic American Mutt

It looks like it could have some springer spaniel in it considering the ticking but that could also be from a short hair or a setter.

The ticking and face are very similar to my enlish pointer. I would guess some sharthair dog like EP/or GSP mixed with a long haired breed. EP and setter could make a fine hunting dog. adam

Nothing wrong with a mutt! They're usually healthier than our expensive pure-breds frown

I dont see any setter in that dog at all. There are lots of breeds that have ticking if that is what your going by.

Yeah it doesn't really matter to us. She seems to be a very good little dog. We don't know how old she is either but from the current set of behavior I would guess about 7 months.

Just a fishing buddy. And a couch warmer.

Ralph Wiggum,

Is that a Great Dane? I own one from a breeder in Isanti and yours looks like a sibling. Mine is from Butters. You'll know what i mean.

Yeah, he's a Dane. He's out of Northwind Great Danes in Jeffers, MN, though. How old is yours? Ours is 8.5 months.

I agree with the Border Collie mix. My Broinlaw has border collies and I see that breed in this dog. As for the other part, springer spaniel is a good guess, Dalmatian is another posibility.

In the current fashion of mixing names of breeds to invent a new type of dog (ex Labradoodle, puggles, schnoodle etc) you either have a

Border Coloniel or a Border Calmatian.

I had a beagle springer mix (I guess that would be a Spreagle)as a kid and the face is very similar.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
