Q: What Breed is my dog?

We adopted Odie about a year ago and we're still not sure what breeds he may have in him. His foster mom told us Border Terrier mix and the vet said Brussel Griffon mix. But I was looking on the web yesterday and looked at the description for Bichon and he kinda looks like a Bichon mix to me. What do you think?

After looking at The Photos, I think he does indeed have some Border Terrier in him. But he does look like he has some Bichon in him too. He may have Brussel Griffon in him too, Maybe even some West Highland Terrier(?). Whatever he is, He is very cute.

SOME POSSIBLE MIXES
Border Terrier/Bichon mix
Border Terrier/Brussel Griffon mix
Border Terrier/ West Highland Terrier mix
Border Terrier/Miniature Schnauzer mix
Miniature Schnauzer/Bichon mix

What a cool looking dog! If you really want to know and don't mind spending some money they now make doggie DNA breed testing kits. Two that I found online are the "Canine Heritage Breed Test Kit" for $80 and the other is "Bio Pet Vet Lab" for $60. I always wanted to do it for my dog who is also a mixed breed. We know her mother was a Golden Retriever but I think her father was something much shorter! The only drawback that I could see to the test kits is that they don't cover all breeds so it is possible that you may get results that lists some breeds in your dog's family tree and then has another as unknown.
