    This is one of my students, a shelter dog. The family is curious what breeds he might be. I think pom...

    Ideas?

    He's 13 lbs. One blue eye, one eye blue and brown.

    Shelties can range in size from 15lbs on up to 25 I think, so my first guess would be a bunch of sheltie in there with those markings..........but then, I'm never real good with these breed guessing things, LOL

    ok so I am assuming there is a picture that I cannot see in there? Unless you are just putting in a VERY random guess, Coop LOL

    Oh, good, I'm not the only one who can't see the picture. Even the good old, right click, and copy & paste the properties isn't working. :confused:

    I have a few guesses but only will say GORGEOUS!!! This dog would be sought after for commercials and movies. :) From the glass and cracked eyes, I wonder if the dog is a merle? Sometimes there are merles that on first glance look anything but..... and pomeranians and shelties both come in merle options. Poms especially have a ton of color options. Pom mix?

    Something about him makes me want to say there could be corgi in there. Maybe mixed with sheltie or pom.

    Except he's a nutcase :) Super reactive, and humps everything in sight.

    if it weren't for the tail...i'd bet there wasn't even spitz in that guy...he reminds me of som'thing I can't put my finger on. :)

    isn't the coat a bit short for sheltie/pom?

    I think maybe it's just the angle. He's not corgi-shaped at all in person. He looks identical to Sadie in body.

    Could be the angle. Then again, I have a corgi who isn't corgi-shaped. ;) Something in his face/head/ears though. Especially in the second picture.

    Looks papillon-ish, too. Man, they need to create a breed that looks like that. Awesome.

    Humps everything in sight, hmm??? Maybe the Trojan folks would pick him up for their ads? ;)

    OMG, that is one gorgeous dog! I'm going to go out on a limb and say Sheltie/Am. Eskimo mix. Maybe with at least one other breed.

    Papillon? Something about the second pic reminds me of a Pap.


    Not really.

    I'm thinking some Sheltie--see the stop?--but that is NOT a Sheltie tail. Pom? Something Spitz-ish? Whatever. He's just gorgeous.

    This was my first thought, but I was afraid to say anything since I am kind of obsessed with the breed.:D
