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.

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.
