Default Do YOU know my sweet puppy's breed?

Hello! We adopted this cutie about 2 months ago. His name is Gus. We LOVE him. We got him from a rescue group and he was originally advertised as an American/English bulldog mix. He definitely has a bit of the droopy face features of a bulldog and when he was smaller he had more loose skin. However, the bigger he gets, the more sure we are that he is most definitely primarily some other breed. We're not even positive he's got any bulldog in him at this point! Maybe more like St. Bernard. We are just hoping to have a better handle on his breed to anticipate things like size and potential lifespan, training techniques, etc.

I'd really like to know the opinions of some of you who know your dog breeds.

Thanks!

I did some looking and researching yesterday, and I am really thinking he is part Shar Pei as well. Maybe Shar Pei and lab. It makes more sense than any of the bully breeds. I think he may also be part butler. That's what he reminds me of with the stripe of white down his chest and his black dog bone name tag.

What makes you think he has lab in his mix? I went straight back to pic#3 and I do see boxer in his face as do 2 other members! No Iam convinced there is boxer in there have a look again at pic #3 and zoom in!! And let us know what you think!

Oh I am not saying that he's NOT boxer, but I looked up several mix breeds based on conversation here and with family and friends who have commented on him (bulldog/boxer, lab/boxer, shar pei/lab, st. bernard mix) and he most closely resembled the shar pei/lab mixes. The top of his head is shaped a lot like a lab's and he's certainly got the coloring of a golden lab. He's gotten quite long, much longer than a bulldog, and while he does have the coloring of a boxer in the face, his jowels look a lot like a share pei's, in my opinion. The lady who fostered him said she saw the mother and that she thought it looked almost like a St. Bernard, but shorter.
