    Okay, so one of my favorite things is getting people's opinions on what my dog, Chester, could be a mix of. So far I've heard shar-pei, pit, lab, boxer, american bulldog, and even beagle! If it helps, he's about 60 lbs (should be 65, but I'm having trouble getting him to gain weight) and almost a year and a half old. Also, his toes are webbed. Other than that, here are his pictures! Take a swing at it!

    I definitely see Shar Pei. I can see where people might say boxer due to his markings, and his face in that 3rd picture. Pei/boxer probably isn't too far off.

    ADORABLE kitten he's with in that last picture!

    ETA: Could you post a picture of his "webbed" toes? All dogs have webbed toes to some extent, but some breeds have truly webbed toes.

    You would not believe how hard I tried to get a toe picture, but we've been cutting his toenails lately so now he doesn't trust me :( I'd say they're webbed out to the last knuckle before the nail, if that helps.

    That seems pretty normal, I wouldn't consider that truly webbed.

    Well okay then! He's also the first dog I've had that likes water, so I guess I just connected the two.

    He is utterly adorable, that's what he is! :D

    I could see Shar Pei/boxer too.

    He looks like a shar pei boxer mix to me. I've seen some "specifically bred as designer dogs", and that is what they looked like. He's so cute and wrinkly!

    I see Shar Pei & Boxer, too, but I also see a little Lab in his expression in the last picture. He's beautiful.

    He certainly has enough skin to be a shar-pei mix. And I totally do that to my Shar-pei mixes face too. We call it "Silly Putt Face"
