Bridle mutt

Post by dailydoseofsunny » Sat Sep 02, 2017 1:15 am

This is sunny, adopted 5 month old female, rescue listed her as a boxer mix (colour). Our puppy trainer said she sees dutch shep in her physical features and tempterment. Either way, she is a super smart cookie and always ready to GO! Perfect pup to me.

can you take some side pictures, or pictures of her standing? I know its not easy with a pup.

Although, she does look like a DS to me.

Although it's not important whether she IS dutch shepherd or not, it definitely feels better to say she is guessed to be a dutch mix rather than the boxer X she was listed as πŸ˜‚

She could be part boxer too. Lookit how short her snoot is, and how boxy her head is too... I see Dutch Shepherd but there's definitely something else in there.

A bridle mutt? Is that a wedding gift these days? Are they supposed to be in the ceremony?

So MANY questions!!!!

J/k but you're missing an N in your title :D

That pup of yours looks like a shepherd to me, I also see boxer with the head and snout shape.

I'm not 100% sure it's a Dutch Shepherd though. Could be a Malinois or a Mal mix and got the brindle from the boxer side. And some Mals will also throw brindles.

Either way she's a cutie, and you're gonna have a blast training her.

...... Mals are tan dutchies, right?

I think this picture better shows her head shape and her long "rat nose" that my hubby always jokes about. Thank you for your input everyone!

@Tennessee3 I could only wish to have a pup like this as a wedding gift! Lol!
