Q: Any guesses on the breed?

Any guesses on the breed?

This pup was given to our shelter as a pit bull mix....but those ears are ridiculous and her face is so long and slender! Any guesses on her breed? We have some ideas but I want to know what everyone else thinks.

It looks like some Greyhound or Whippet. Maybe some Pit Bull.

i'd love to be able to see what the rest of her coat. i can see why they would say pit mix, but something about her reminds me of a Mexican Hairless (though she obviously isn't hairless) or a pharaoh hound. it's largely the ears taht have me thinking along those lines. adorable dog, whatever she is.

She looks like she might be part Italian Greyhouns and part doberman pincher. She's very beautiful but i don't see any pit bull in her. I am also trying to downloand pictures of my dogs.

My guess is either Great Dane or Great Dane cross. I see alot of Great Dane type features to this pup.

Need more info, we should be watching behaviors as well, to detemine mixes. I found a Vizsla in the county animal control, they were calling a Doberman. But when I worked with her she would go on point if a leave moved. I told them what I thought her breed was and they had a man looking for his Vizsla for three weeks who called in daily. It is important to lable these dogs right for good placement. Someone looking for a hunting dog would over look a dog labled, Doberman, and another looking for a Doberman would be disappointed in a Vizsla.

Wow! What an adorable pup! She kind of looks like Scooby Doo! He he. I think I agree with the Great Dane / Pit Bull mix consensus. I sure hope she finds a forever home.
