I am no expert, but he does appear to have some dwarf characteristics to me. Hard to tell from the photos but.

I am no expert either, but he looks pretty out of proportion with some dwarf characteristics to me.......

he looks very dwarfish, at six months he should be half the height of his mother and leggy.

I can't change! I'm like a Chameleon...always a lizard!

He is very cute and shaggy :)

Now I'm wondering if mine is a dwarf.

The more I look at him the more I think dwarf. He's got the bulbous head, the pot belly, short neck, etc.

Yeah he certainly looks like one to me. With the short neck and short back, he is probably a Brachiocephalic Dwarf.

He is super super cute, but the massive head gives it away for me. He will likely need more care because of it, but on the plus side, all minis are cute, and now he will be cuter!
