This is my wonderful dog, Cer (short for Cerveza). He is a Jack Russel Terrier and was a lovely puppy even in his old age. He passed very recently, just this Friday, at the age of 14-15, and I miss him so much. He loved to flop next to your legs or on his favorite soft blankets or on the couch in the sun. I loved him so much, and I hope you all love him too – @wakeupthewub

Could I dm you about my dog, who I’d like to submit for guess the breed? I want to make sure he is the breeds I think he is, and I could use some help on that with your eye.

Guess the breed is only for DNA tested or verified parentage dogs. The point is to have an answer at the end, and show that dogs aren’t always what they appear to be. If you are just guessing, you can send in a regular submission asking people what they think

Guess the breed(s)
(rules)

Height: 24 inches at shoulder

Weight: 62lbs/28kg

Personality: Loves to snuggle, loves to play, has lots of energy and really enjoys obedience, agility, and anything to keep her mind and body active. Has a strong sense of a personal bubble around strange dogs, and so can be snarky if they get up in her face, but also can get along and play well with most dogs when introduced politely. High prey drive, highly motivated by food, has a very intimidating bark/growl when someone comes to the door but warms up to new people fairly quickly and will soon be leaning against their legs for snuggles.

Nothing obscure here! This doggo is mixed with 2 common breeds. One more so than the other.

This is Layla. She’s about 8 months old and we have no idea what breed she is. She is stubborn as an ox and wickedly intelligent, but also super loving and mushy when she wants to be. She’s an excellent bird dog except for the part where she wants to eat them for lunch. She is a huge jumper (like impressively high) and only barks when she hears funny noises or sees another dog on the street. She has a curly tail and funny looking eyeballs with the sclera exposed so they kind of look like they point in opposite directions. Any ideas of what she is? All guesses are welcome!

How painful is it to post submissions with misspelled words? i.e. "shepard"

lol I have a love hate relationship with captions. I think you’ll find that I don’t always read them until they’re posted. They can really ruin a picture – like that weird one recently with the puppies rescued from under the church?? The line about the priest totally ruined the picture and took away from the cute pups. If I had read that when I queued it, I probably would have taken it out. But I get way too many submissions, so I just skim them to make sure they don’t say anything about death or abuse or being a wolf.

When it comes to spelling, I do know that English isn’t everyone’s first language, so sometimes poor grammar or spelling can be the result of a language barrier. I don’t really bat an eye at that stuff, more so the “this is my dog, he loves jumping out of moving cars” stuff.

My boston terrier/shih tzu mix always needs something on the floor if he’s going to jump up on to something like the bed or couch. It was funny before when he would use his bed as a ‘launchpad’ to get on ours, but now we’re in a bigger house where there’s not always something available and it’s a little concerning. Sometimes he’ll literally just sit there and whine until we put something on the floor that he can jump off of. Is there something wrong with him? Why does he keep doing this?

He’s probably just not confident that he can jump that high. Once he does it on his own, he should be fine. It’s normal for dogs to be anxious about things like that, especially if he has experienced missing a jump in the past. The floor could also be slippery?

He hates water (one of the breeds in him loves it) but he loves snow.

Hi, blind dog anon again! I realized after I sent the ask that I should have clarified 😅 We have been to the vet to check out the blindness. We recently found out that she’s diabetic and have just started treating her, and the vet told us that the blindness is a result of diabetic cataracts. She has her on some eye drops right now to treat inflammation, and we have another visit scheduled this Friday! For now, I’m just looking for ways to help her get around. Sorry for the confusion!

Gotcha! Ok. Poor pup, that must be scary 🙁 I’ve dealt with deaf dogs & three legged dogs, but not blind dogs.

Anyone have helpful advice?
