    Ok, we got Max a week ago, and he's absolutely adorable. However, when I got him, I was told he was an Aussie/Lab mix, which is cool. But then...I got a picture of mom and dad (I've actually seen mom in person, but not dad). And dad is most definitely not an Aussie. So help me out...what is my dog?

    Here's a picture of Max:

    The mom looks like a lab/pit. The dad remindes me of a Greater Swiss Mt. Dog.

    Either way, he's adorable! :)

    Mom looks like a Yellow Labrador Retriever/American Bulldog to me and dad looks like an Australian Shepherd/? Its hard to tell ith him because the girl having her arms around him hides a lot of his physical features.

    Yeah, dad looks too big boned to me to be an Aussie, his head is just totally the wrong shape as well :/ He is the mystery breed cross I guess, lol.

    He does look a lot like a Greater Swiss Mt. Dog, at first I thought he was too small, but maybe he's just young. Thanks guys, we'll see how this little one develops as he gets older, maybe that will give more clues.

    No, don't think there's any border collie, at least it doesn't look it to me (wrong face and body structure).
