Default HELP! What Breed Is My Puppy Mixed With?!?

I love my puppy so much. I got her from my local animal shelter a little over a month ago and she is 4 months old. They told me she is a Pomeranian Mix but they couldnt tell me what she was mixed with. My first guess was Pomchi....(Pomeranian Chihuahua)...but after doing some research and talking to a lot of people im starting to think maybe the shelter got it wrong and there is no Pomeranian in her at all....I almost 80% sure she's mixed with Papillon....(the ears are a dead giveaway) but Papillon mixed with what? Is she indeed mixed with Pomeranian like the shelter said? Or is she mixed with Chihuahua like my gut is telling me?


HERE ARE THREE PICTURES OF HER:

She looks like a schipperke to me, she might have that breed in her. If you're really curious there are DNA tests that you can do(not exactly cheap and not always accurate but there's no harm in doing one if you're really curious about it!)

Absolutely love those ears! Whatever mix she is, cuteness is part of it!

In my limited experience, animal shelters are not very good at identifying breeds.
My Sadie was supposedly an Australian Shepherd "MIX" but they couldn't tell me what the mix part is.
Every vet and expert with herding dogs says she looks 100% Aussie to them.
I'm glad the shelter was wrong as my fees were only $100 instead of the $300 they charge for pure breds.

Oh my gosh she is so cute. My first thought was pom too but those ears could definitely be papillon. She's a beauty that's for sure.

So cute. Next door are 4 chi's and behind us another one--and your puppy does look a lot like them. I do think chi is in there. But, whatever, she is adorable and most important, rescued and loved.
