Does my rescue pup have Dutch shepherd in her?

Post by Dwaz » Fri May 11, 2018 11:16 pm

Hi everyone!

We recently rescued an amazing pup whose mom was a 15 pound terrier/Doxie mix. Our pup has completely different coloring and after doing some research we thought she may have some Dutch Shepherd in her.

She’s very tiny - at 8 weeks she was 4.4 lbs, and at 14.5 weeks she was roughly 8 lbs.

Would love to know if all of you Dutch shepherd experts think she could have some in her!

Thank you!
