Tell us about yourself: Currently have 2 yr old dutch shepherd named zeus along with his "brother from another mother" german shepherd named Bear. Zeus was a foster dog where I worked and came in so shy and confused. From the moment I saw him, I knew he was meant to be mine. He is my most loyal friend and nothing can come between us.

I was wondering if anyone had any good opinions on what my dog could be. I adopted him, so no papers and the adoption agency said he was a husky/boxer mix. To me, he acts and looks like a dutch shepherd. I'm just curious. Either way, he is an awesome dog.

Tell us about yourself: Hi,
Short and sweet here- I'm a father of 2 boys, a carpenter, hunter, runner. We have extensive experience with sled dogs, shepherd mixes, a wolf hybrid, and our current dog a 95# long haired Shiloh Shepherd. I'm looking for a more energetic dog that had the same intelligence and trainability. I'm interested in advice, opinions, and a place to share experiences.

pictures from different angles would be helpful:) i agree that i see neither boxer nor husky in your dog, what a strange combo for them to guess him as :yernuts:

Side pictures definitely, but from how much he looks like Radar, there's probably some DS in there somewhere.

Thanks for rescuing.
