    Does anyone know what they are? Gizzy she got from an accidental litter. The owner said he was a dachshund/corgi mix, but I don't really know. Callie and Tosha both came from the pound, so she doesn't really know what they are. Thanks!

    Gizzy and Callie remind me of 2 of the 3M's here on Chaz ;)
    I do see a little Corgi in Gizzy. The short stubby legs, slightly long body and the coloring reminds me of one. The hair is long, and the ears are floppy, I can't put my finger on it just yet.
    Tosha looks Husky {type} to me :)

    Very cute dogs!

    Thanks, everyone! Does anyone see any rat terrier in Callie? That's what one person said to her at Petsmart.

    Well, with Tosha, definitely she has Husky features.

    Gizzy looks like part Corgi, but I would have to see his proportions more to guess what else.

    Callie looks very obviously chihuahua-ish. She looks like she definitely has some in her. She *might* have rat terrier in her. I've noticed they usually have a harder expression while hers is really soft. It's hard to tell what else. How much do you think she weighs?

    Gizzy looks sort of Toller like to me, just really little. My guess would be Corgi/Toller.

    Callie looks maybe Chi/Dachshund to me, but I'm not sure. It's hard to tell from the pictures.

    Tosha looks very Husky to me aswell, but I'm not sure what else she could be mixed with.

    Gizzy looks like a Nova Social Duck Tolling Retriever/Corgie mix, Callie I'm not really sure and Tosca looks like a husky/wolf hybrid.

    There are some GSD/Huskies that look a lot like Tasha too. The GSD seems to give them the leggier appearance with larger ears than typical for a husky.

    The only time I ever see dogs with Tosha's coloring, the creamy toasted marshmallow color with some darker guard hairs, is in shepherd/wolf mixes, and shepherd/huskymalamute or some other northern breed mixes. I love that color so have actively looked for dogs that come in it . Definitely some shepherd there, the rest is either wolf, or a domestic northern breed, or both. She's a beautiful animal.

    I watch a lot of nature shows and Tosha looks very much like a wolf to me . I don't know about the other 2.

    I use to have a husky/german shepard mix, named Star and she didn't look like Tasha. Instead she looked more german shepard except her coat colors where white (where black would be) and grey (where tan would be) Tasha def. looks like a wolf!! I would love to meet a dog like that in person

    I see some Papillon in Gizzy, and definitely Shepherd/Wolf hybrid in Tasha. My sister-in-law has a 50/50 shepherd/wolf hybrid, and she looks exactly the same. Beautiful dog!

    Wouldn't it be rather clear, personality wise if she was a wolf mix? Either way, that dog looks amazing.
