So the spots on the tongue don't really have anything to do with breed? Interesting. I thought it was some sort of clue as to what he is.

You know, I thought possibly a bit a Doberman, too. And today we met a Rotweiller (I know I didn't spell that right) and his coloring was exactly the same as Shadow. The owner said, 'what kind of dog is he?'. My son says, 'we think a Shepherd mix' and the Rott owner was like, 'Um, really?'.

The way he lays cracks me up. He also lays with the front legs straight out, on his tummy with the frog back legs. A friend was over and said, 'if you put a cape on him he'd look like he was flying'. Very funny.

You know, it makes me think that maybe the shelter wouldn't want to say 'he's part Doberman/Rottweiller/whatever' because maybe they thought it would hurt his chances of getting adopted. You know, that stereotypical dog breed thing. Who knows.

He's 33 pounds and full grown.

There do seem to be a lot of dogs with those black and tan markings, so I guess I may never know.

Shadow is just darling! He reminds me a bit of my Kiara:

They even lay the same way! She also has the white with ticking on her chest as he appears to have in the photos.

She's a bit larger than him (she weighs in upper 40's, lower 50's - depending on how much swimming she does.) We call her a Black and Tan Coonhound/Doberman mix.

A lot of shelters are horrible with breeds - I've noticed a lot call anything black and tan a Shepherd mix. They labeled Kiara and a Rottweiler mix but I don't see it.

I can't quite pinpoint what your boy is but I will say he is 100% adorable!

Some have guessed that he is a Shepherd/Terrier mix, but he also, to my untrained eye, looks kind of Doberman-ish or Miniature Pinscher-ish although his size doesn't seem right for either of those breeds. One odd thing about him is his tongue, which is pink with black blotches. He has a fairly long tail with a tiny bit of white at the very tip. He seems to have a bit of guard dog instinct in him, but maybe all dogs have that.

Any help narrowing down what type of dog he might be will be appreciated!!

PS This is my first time posting, so I hope I did it right.

Thank you!

Thats a very attractive dog. However black or blue spots on the toungue is a strong indication that there could be liver damage which is quite common in abused dogs, you say you got him from the spca so maybe he had a poor diet before he came to them. I recomend you have a vetenarian test him for liver ailments. Nice dog once again.
