    but hey who really cares?
    I would say more 'dingo' like.

    Brindle - thats something some staffies have. And whippets and greyhounds - and some ridge backs that don't meet breed standard - ie they come out brindle or ridgeless.

    Not sure what other breeds have brindle but there's probably some.

    And the curly up tail - me thinks spitz or huski like dog.

    Ears - I dunno.

    Distantly related to Shar Pei - what colour is the dog's tongue?
    I know of a Great Dane that leans on you when you walk. She damn near pushes you over sideways.

    I'd completely missed this post. That's a pretty good analysis.

    She has a pink tongue.

    I had to Google spitz. But Shar Pei???!

    Shar pei and crosses of usually have a large amount of blue or black on their tongue. My dog has black spots on her tongue but I think that's an extension of the "ticking" that's on the rest of her.

    I forgot about the brindle boxer that used to walk at our morning dog park - he is fond of a lean for a back scratch, and he's got a nice white patch on his chest. So that's a possibility eg boxer x huski/spitz type.
