The puppy is a mix of something. I have a pure lab and it's face looks a lot like a pitbull, so that doesn't mean it is a pit mix. The white paws would tell me it is a lab mix with something other than a pit. Cute puppy, they grow like weeds though! LOL Good luck

Very nice looking little guy there! Definitely a mix... some possible APBT or AMStaff - but it will be easier to tell as he gets a little older. He sure looks happy and healthy though! Eric

Bear, way to go man! Cute mutt...and the name fits perfectly. That pooch certainly looks like a keeper to me. A visit to the vet for a quick checkup a chew toy and a good home and you've got a friend for life. [:D]

I definately see some lab, but I don't see any pit bull.

Actually, what you have there is a 100%, pure-breed, certified, a-one POS mutt. I gave up trying to figure out what all was in mine a long time ago. Every time I thought I had it nailed down, she grew/aged a little more and she looked a little more like something else. These kind are always the best ones. Keep your damn pedigree papers and give me a dog, not an ongoing genetic experiment.

His ears look like some kinda pit breed.The rest I dont no,kinda HOBO looking.An excellent name by the way.My uncle had a dog named Hobo.People who knew dogs wouldn't even take a guess what he was.His neck was bigger than his head.Couldnt keep a collar on him.He would back up agianst a chain and pull it off.Harness didnt work either.Never did fiqure out how he got out of it.Just as soon as you werent watching he would be up laying on the back porch.I loved that dog,great companion growing up with. One sad thing about Hobo.My aunt and Uncle took a caretaker job for a rod and gun club asfter he retired.Hobo was about deaf and he was laying behind a car and it backed over him.He got up and laid down by the lake.My uncle didnt want to move him.he called me and asked me to bring my rifle.I told him no.I couldnt do it.Its the only time I ever turned my uncle down.Luckly there was someone there who could.He never felt a thing.My uncle couldn't do it either.This is a man hardend by the Battan death march.Everyone in the club loved that dog.If you raised your hand to anyone in Hobo's family you were about to get your ass chewed on.Smartest dog I ever knew. He named him Hobo because before the war my uncle road the rails.The depression was on and he knew a lot of hobos.

Put his ass to work. Have him rid your house of "Scout doves".

Here is a shot of our 5 month old female Lab Sasha. She was about 3.5 months when this pic was taken. I didn't grow up around dogs, but my wife turned me around. Sasha is the coolest dog. We are about to take her to boot camp. [:D] Cheers, Chris [img]http://www.seanet.com/~christophe/range/Sasha.jpg[/img]

If he starts in chewing up every piece of wood he sees in your back yard and in the house(and he looks like he would) I'd call him Beaver![;D]

Here are two that were saved from the shelter. [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid27/pba7d01b12c232a5cc13cba38f8b82cfa/fd755269.jpg[/img] That's Fred on the left and Lucy on the right. My roomie's dogs.

Staffordshire Terrier, more than half. The ears and face give it away. You won't find a better dog. I had the identical match to that pup, even to the toe color, (except for the nose color) for over twelve years. I called my wife in to look at the picture and she said, "It's Tyge." And started crying. Damn what a good dog that was. Edited to say: Since we both are in Kalifornia, and since I live in the South Bay, And if you ever decide the dog is too much for you - Lemme know!

That's a fine looking pup you have there. One of the best dogs I ever had, was a shepard mix who jumped in the back of dad's truck. I'm sure yours is glad to have a home. Treat him good from the start, and he'll be by your side 'til the end.

This is Big Ernie. He was saved from an extremely high kill shelter in Stockton, Ca.: [img]http://home.earthlink.net/~serenitysquadron/images/P5120719.JPG[/img] He's my girfriend's new infatuation. I play second string around here now. Great dog, small for a shorthair. Big Bear that is a pretty touching story...wonder what his story is. Definitely looks like he's got some terrier in him, but I'm no expert and my opinion stops there.

My mechanic has a mutt that apears to be about 50/50 boxer/lab. (Unclipped ears. Why why why do people do that to their dogs. grrr) Was cute as a button as a pup, and is a danged good dog now. Wish I had one like it, but mutts is mutts - hard to go shopping for a particular strain.

Neat dog. Now do yourself a favor and crate train him. He will love it when he is older, kind of like a den. My springer is a terror without his crate and he is 12!

BB my friend,not to long ago IIRC you posted a pix of 'LiLBear',a black akita looking type dog/pup,do you still have it too? I was awol-ar15.com for a few months this winter(SpecOpsCalled)[;)].Good luck with this one, I've always preferd adopting strays/pound dogs too.
Link Posted: 8/2/2002 2:30:06 PM EDT
Nice pup. Some pitbull in there I think. But that's a good thing. Pit's are very healthy, strong and stable dogs. Great with kids. It takes a hell of a lot of abuse to turn a pit mean. Yours looks like a good fun dog. May I recommend a book at your public library called SuperPuppy. It has all the important facts on raising a dog. Including the housebreaking in a transport crate method. The only good way to do it BTW.

This is my black lab named Bruiser.. he's about as lazy as they come. [img]http://www.printroom.com/_vti_bin/ViewImage.dll?userid=Vermilion&album_id=76783&image_id=27&courtesy=1[/img] This is my yellow lab Peaches.. she's pretty lazy also.. hehe [img]http://www.printroom.com/_vti_bin/ViewImage.dll?userid=Vermilion&album_id=76783&image_id=28&courtesy=1[/img] And this is both of them swimming.. My black lab will dive underwater to fetch things and will even jump off the side of the pool and go straight under water.. down to a depth of 6 feet..

My wife once said, "You pay more attention to the dog than you do me." I said, "Thats because he wags his tail," "instead of his JAW." Things were a little frosty for a week or so. Bill

Definately black lab and pit. Be careful, any dog with pit blood can turn at the blink of an eye. Keep it away from neighbor kids and keep your homeowners current.

That reminded me of the difference between a woman screaming on the front porch and a dog howling on the back porch....If you let the dog it, it will shut up![}:D]
