Default What could my puppy be?

Hello! I just adopted a puppy from the shelter and we have no idea what he is. He was labeled as an Australian shepherd mix, although he doesn't look Aussie at all. He's got webbed paws, and the funniest part about him are his ears, which are pointed forward, yet are floppy. So cute! Anyway, we have many guesses including boxer, lab, some kind of shepherd... He is 2-3 months old and weighs 11.5 pounds. Hopefully he grows up to be real big.

In the second picture, you can see that he has a subtle "stripe" down his back (in person it is more clearly visible). Could that be some rhodesian ridgeback? So many possibilities!

Congratulations on you new pup! I am an absolute sucker for flop over ears and your pup is just adorable. He could well be a mix of any of the dogs you mention, and even a mix of mixes. It should be easier to make a more accurate guess as he grows. What is his name?

Your pup is precious. He could very well have some Australian shepherd in him. 17 years ago we adopted our old Mack from a vet who said he was an Aussie mix. As you can see in this photo when he was 14, he too had the flop over ears.

He also had the white down his back. He was a darker brown when he was a pup and didn't have such a white face.

His name is Harley! Thank you all for the insight, and I guess we'll never know for sure what our little guy is, maybe we can tell when he gets older. But we love him no matter what!
