Tell us about yourself: Just on here because I'm curious if my supposed Dutch Shepherd/pitbull mix actually has any DS appearance! I also have a GSD/malamute and I work at a farm with 2 awesome and very smart LGDs.

Old Dog Ripley - what is she, anyways?

Hey, Dutch Shepherd people! This is my dog Ripley! She's absolutely the most intelligent, mischievous, athletic, and quick-learning dog I've ever been lucky enough to call my own, but I don't know her parentage. I got her from a shelter about 13 years about when she was a little over a year old.

The shelter described her as "a shepherd/boxer mix" on one form, and a "Dutch Shepherd Dog mix" on another form. I'm not sure what's correct! Here are some photos. Her head seems a bit too square at the back to be DS, and her tail seems to thin and curved. She's also kind of a lighter colour (she has faded with age) and she's got a white spot on her chest. If she's not DS, maybe you guys can help me out with what she could be instead! I love her to pieces, and for all I care she's part zebra!

this is her today - she is 14 and quite grey!

Thanks for having a look! Sorry I don't have any better front-views, she's always in motion
