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.

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!

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

Tell us about yourself: I'm Keith, 28 years old born and raised outside Chicago. I adopted Duke, the Dutch Shepherd from a Chicago foster based rescue. Duke had an unfortunate first 2 months of his upbringing but he's been a prince around here ever since.

Healthy, happy, energetic, and super social.

Thanks, you guys! Think you're probably right. Not quite sure what the other breeds there are, but possibly some bully breed.
