Looks like it's got some Rhodesian Ridgeback in there...

DJK said...

That's how we got his papers, Rhodesian Ridgeback mix.

Squeaky Wheel said...

He looks like he's got an American Bulldog-ish head, too, albeit with a slightly longer snout.

JJK said...

The cute kind.

DJK said...

heheh Yes, he's a cutey...just like his mom.




So, at one point were were told by a vet that the RR looking stripe on his back could be from where he was nicked with a scalpel during a C-Section or something like that. I WISH I KNEW.

Lou is the kind of dog that has personality and is super cute. heh

Slipped in from SaysUncle.

I was leaning towards a pit/rottweiler mix. He's got the shoulders/chest of a pit with the muzzle and loose skin of the rott.

Either way, good lookin' dog.

Rhodesian Ridgeback, mixed with either a boxer, or an American Staffordishre terrier.

Basically, take the Rottie out of my dog, and replace it with a Ridgie, and there's your dog.

DJK said...

Yeah...we've been thinking Ridgey/Pitt/something else. ;) He found us....from the street so I doubt we'll ever know.

DJK said...

Oh yeah, and he's got the underbite of a boxer.

He is 100% Pit Bull.

DJK said...

Maybe I just choose not to see that.... but I don't think he's 100% anything.

They have dog dna testing now - swab in the mouth and then mail it in. Google it....or http://www.dog-dna.com/

DJK said...

NO KIDDING!?!?!?! $120 though. It's more fun to speculate.....that is....unless someone wants to buy it for us to answer the question. ;)

oldblinddog said...

You may not want him to be 100% anything but he is. I have seen too many pit bull "catch" dogs not to know one when I see it. Of course, it is still just my opinion but it is an informed one.

oldblinddog said...

DNA testing cannot differentiate between a dog and a wolf much less between breeds of dog. Parentage could be determined if samples were obtained from the relevant individuals.

DJK said...

I see. We wouldn't even know where to begin to find his parents.

My money is on boxer (see shoulders and ears) and pit bull (see face).

I would say BMC (black mouth cur) and either american or pit bull mix. I have a purebred BMC and whenever she's either scared or ready to pounce all the hair on her back and neck stands on end. In hunting it signals their master that the've got something. My brother breeds both bmc and americans, he had an oops litter about 6 years ago and your dog looks a lot like a few of those pups. Look up the BMC and see how deep their chests are and you'll see why I say that. Longer snout says part bmc too.

DJK said...

Interesting ideas...thanks for the comment.


Do you have any pictures of the OOPS litter?

DJK said...

He definitely looks a lot like the BMC dogs here

Sorry I don't have any pics of them, I found this website quite by accident and I figured I'd comment, he's a great looking dog. Our Mocha came from a shelter in rural mississippi for 25 bucks,(we're from chicago, hubby is otr truckdriver)she's the BEST dog I ever had! Almost like they know you saved them huh?@!

DJK said...

TOTALLY! I know they know. He is a GREAT dog. He minds well, he doesn't chew on things, and he's a great watchdog. OH yah, he's also GREAT with kids.
