Dutch Shepherd mix?

Post by Sdement87 » Sat Nov 16, 2019 5:30 am

Hi everyone!
I just adopted an 8 week old puppy who the SPCA listed as a "shepherd mix". I'm thinking he's mostly Dutch shepherd but figured I'd get some other opinions :D

Tell us about yourself: Apparently I just adopted a Dutch Shepherd. My experience have been with Dalmatians. The shelter listed her as a 3 year old Dutch Shepherd, which truthfully I didn't even know was a breed. I picked her because she is so sweet and energetic. But looking at the forum, I'm wondering if I might have taken on more than I will be able to handle. I did reach out to s DS rescue and they say she does appear to be a DS. But so far she's a joy and though not trained is catching on quickly.

He’s a stout looking pup with big paws and a deep strong head. His ears are set low as well. He’s a nice pup but not full Dutch Shepherd. Pictures can be deceiving, but I’d say there is bull blood there

Thank you, yes I was thinking maybe he's got pitbull in him. He is very young and still small. I just sent out his dna swab this morning so hopefully it will be accurate.
