    Default Guess the breed

    Hello!
    I'm new here, but my introduction post seems to have disappeared. My hubby and I are a month into a rescue adoption. Sophie made it to the kennels via a ranger, so nothing is known about her past. Vets estimate she's about 18 months old. We can only guess as to her breed, and I'd be very interested to know what your guess are!

    Hi Purple possum

    You will have to *attach* a picture.

    You can't put a link yet - well you can, but take the http bit off and put spaces in it and we can cut and paste it and take the spaces out.

    Like this.

    If you put a normal link in - the spaminator will hide your post because you are new.

    Thanks Hyacinth, you're quick!

    I'm too technoignorant to know how links work, but it turns out I can't upload images in any way on my tablet, so it took a little while to transfer to my laptop and load them up. They look pretty small on my screen, but hopefully it's enough to get the guesses flowing

    I have a friend with a dog that looks very similar and weirdly enough it is a labrador/staffy x. I would never have guessed that myself. There are a nunber of breeds that I could guess in there to come up with the ubiquitous brown dog.

    We have considered staffy but didn't think of lab!

    I should probably add that she's quite tall - I haven't measured her, but her head is hip height. And weighs 30kg.

    Yes she looks quite big. My friends lab/staffy cross is also quite tall but not quite as heavy

    The weight is still debatable actually. The vet info we got given on adoption day said 21kg, but at her first vet visit with us a week later it was 30kg. I'll be much more confident about her weight when we have a third number!

    Good on you for saving a life and I know Sophie will love you for the rest of her life. As for breed...that's a hard one...as others have said lab/staffy x and maybe a touch of Rhodesian Ridgeback too.

    random guesses

    colour
    staffy, Staffordshire Bull Terrier or Amstaff (longer legs)
    Mastiff (tan with black nose - some SBT have this too)
    dingo

    Shape and size
    mastiff
    greyhound
    bull arab (especially if you are in FNQ)

    Some of those pix do make her look like roo x jack Russell terrier...
