handsomedogs:

Guess the Breed(s)
(rules)

This is Sherlock, the love of my life! He’s 4 years old, weighs 62 pounds, and is about 25″ tall at the shoulder.  He has the easiest temperament of any dog I’ve ever met, extremely sweet, calm, friendly, and laid-back. We just recently got him certified as a Canine Good Citizen and he’s part of the therapy dog program now at my local hospital.  He’s incredibly low-energy and has been ever since he was a puppy (we adopted him at 6 months) but he loves to play with people and dogs. He’s very smart but quite stubborn, and is very friendly though not the most affectionate at times—he’ll let you hug and cuddle him, but he won’t initiate any of that on his own. He is very uninterested in food most of the time and is never one to steal food that you left out, and he has almost no prey drive (we used to have pet rats back when we first adopted him and while he was certainly interested in them all he ever wanted to do was sit there and let them climb all over him). Also he’s super lanky and has a way of prancing and flailing his legs when he runs and plays that’s really adorable to watch. He’s a pretty quiet dog but he LOVES to howl along to me or to Youtube videos.  I love my boy! <3

Sherlock is…!!!

Equal parts German Shepherd, Boxer, show collie, and Alaskan Malamute!

I’m confused as to why you refer to poodles as having hair when hair and fur are literally the same thing chemically/organically? Is it just because poodles have one coat that you refer to it that way? No sarcasm intended, but the only thing that makes it fur is that it covers an animal’s whole body.

I don’t find it too confusing. It’s just to differentiate that dogs like poodles have hair that is similar to a person’s head of hair. It grows almost continuously, and only falls out occasionally. But the fact that it is curly is what helps the most.

Guess the Breed(s)

This is Calista! She’s 7 years old this year, around 90lbs, and very dog selective. She’s friendly but aloof with strangers– she’s a very one person dog, very protective and studious in her house guarding. Doesn’t bark unless there’s a reason. Loves adventure, running zoomies, and chasing toys. Will do ANYTHING to please you, literally a simple smile works as reinforcement.  She likes to be the little spoon. 🙂

This cool looking pup is mixed with 3 breeds. Two bully breeds and one herding breed. She is not mixed with dogo argentino.

Guess the Breed(s)
(rules)

This is Kai, just five months old. He was the largest of the litter, currently 37lb and 20″ at the shoulder. 

Kai is very trainable and easy to motivate. his favorite game is fetch and he has great ball drive. he’s sweet, loving, and cuddly, but not too clingy–he likes to spend time wandering the property while i’m taking care of livestock, but checks in with me too. Kai is very easygoing and gets along great with other dogs and new people.

Kai is only mixed with 2 breeds. He is not mixed with shepherd. His second breed is a smaller herding breed. The second picture is a good hint by itself!
