Can someone help me identify this breed of dog?
Your help is greatly appreciated!!!
Labradoodle - whilst not strictly a `breed' (yet) I would stake a lot of what I own on that! It's definitely a Labradoodle.
I'd say it's got some sort of sheep dog in it. I don't think it's a labradoodle.
I wouldn't rule out labradoodle.
Unless you've never seen one that hasn't been clipped!! Lol....they look very much like a distant cousin to a sheep dog. I was thinking that more because of it's face - that is very disinctly Labradoodle - as in pic below...
Sorry for the digression but the labradoodle pics remind me of Spanish Water Dogs. I never noticed that before.
mmm. i say labradoodle but i really don't know
Ahhhh!! No, I think it is... I know this really sweet old man who lives around my parents house...and he has a dog just like this...sweetest old dog, his name is RD I know, too many details, lol. Anyway... I forgot the breed... it is something ... sheep dog. I want to say it starts with a "W". Ah.... I'm gonna be thinking about it all day long now
That dog looks much like a South Russain Ovcharka. In the picture with the child I don't see the tail that I would expect to see with other breeds (although from that angle it could be impossible to see anyway!). Check out the picture on this site www.dogbreedinfo.com/southrussianovtcharka.htm
I agree with Saingirl. I know an Ovcharka owner, her dog looks exactly like the one in the picture. So anyone going after Labradoodles for looks, here's a real breed for you.
Peruvian Dust Mop.
Ruby that shot is great. Beautiful dog.
Guys . . . an Ovcharka of ANY sort is just not a dog you get because of the "look!"
I say South Russian Ovcharka http://www.southrussianovcharka.com
Ovcharka means sheep dog or shepherd dog.
NOT breed known as OVCHARKA without a Name in front of it
Caucasian Ovcharka shepherds dog
Central Asian Ovcharka - CAS Shepherds dog USA
South Russian Ovcharka Sheepdog
East European Ovcharka GSD Russian Style
Even Old English Ovcharka if you say Old English Sheepdog in Russian it will Be Ovcharka.
We use the translation for the English sites and most places around the world do.
Jeepers! I've changed my mind! I went to the Ovcharka links provided and, um, wow - they look exactly the same!
Thanks for the great replies everyone!!!
I was had a hunch that the dog was mixed.
