    When i was on holiday i found this dog next to the place i was staying. I think the owner may have lost it as it seemed tamed. I looked after it for the two weeks i was there hoping the owner would come back looking for it but the didn't so i gave it to a friend there who has now given it a good home. Now that i am back home i have decided i want a dog and i think the one i found was just suitable in terms of what i want. Im not sure what breed it was but this is the only picture i could find. Could someone tell me what breed it is?

    I think it may be a bichon frise or a maltese but im not sure and would like some clarification.

    IM SORRY ABOUT THE LARGE SIZE IM NOT SURE HOW TO MAKE IT SMALLER!?

    Looks like maybe one of those Goldendooles. We had one at the dog daycare I worked at and looked just like that dog. Is it a puppy? If it's a pup, I would still say goldendoole... pretty tall to be a maltese or any small breed like that. Maybe a standard poodle puppy? (those are the huge poodles btw..)

    Here's goldendoodle that was at the dog daycare I worked at.

    Now that I think about it... it could be a standard poodle puppy.
    I bet that's what it is.

    It's too tall to be a maltese, bichon, or a regular sized poodle..

    Hi and welcome.

    Cute little dog...

    It is hard to say really, but Bichon, Poodle, and Maltese could all reasonable from looking at the picture.

    It does look like a Goldendoodle. If it's smaller, it could possibly be a Cockapoo.

    deffiently not a bichon or maltese.

    looks like a poodle mix, such as a lab/golden and poodle mixed in.

    Oh, thank you for not saying Labra or Goldendoodle! :hail:

    My first thought was Cocker/Poodle mix. But if it's a puppy, I'd say either Poodle mixed with Lab or Golden.

    Looks like every golden/poodle I've ever seen :) and 'miniatures' are very common around here too, but yours looks 'standard' size.

    That is a mixed breed. You can find one at your love shelter.

    Hi, I registered just because this dog looks almost exactly like mine, and in our case I can tell you that his mom is a Yorkie/Poodle mix and his dad is a Bichon.
