And a photo of my girl, what do you guys think? Do you think I'm right? Ridgeback/mastiff/something smaller? I think she got the ridgeback build, the mastiff excess skin, and the size of something else...
does she have the hair going the opposite direction on her spine?? Either way I see ridgeback and german shepherd lol pretty lady she is :)
No she doesn't have a ridge, nor did any of the others in the litter that I saw (I adopted her from a rescue when she was 7.5wks old), but not all ridgeback crosses have the ridge. I've met full ridgebacks without it.
A lot of people have asked me if she has shepherd in her, I think because of her colour, but ridgebacks also come in that colour and I don't see any shepherd traits in her body type so I don't know... either way she could easily be shepherd cross, I know absolutely nothing about her dad except that she has to have got her size from him because her mum was apparently huge. (which is why I think mum was mastiff/ridgeback, because mastiff/ridgebacks are enormous)
I do wonder if she has some staffy in her, because she trills and talks like a staffy, but mastiffs also have a lot of trill and growl so it could have come from there... she's not really solid enough to have much staffy blood in her, especially if she has mastiff as well. She's very elegant.
Aaaand just because she's cute;
Sorry about the size! They're uploaded on FB, I didn't think they were so big :/
I found my pit mix this last November wandering the neighborhood. Another neighbor had her a few days trying to find her home, but couldn't bring themselves to take her to the humane society. I took her in on the condition of "finding her a new home asap" but my parents soon fell in love with her. :) Here's a few pics of Sadie... or rather an overload of pics :)
Chloe had her first beach trip a few days ago and she LOVES it..I was a little worried at first because of her not being able to hear when I called her but she was fantastic..There were other dogs around playing but she never ran over and tried to play with them, she was content to just chase her tennis ball and play in the tide pools.
This is right before the look I got that clearly said "Mom, this water tastes nasty"
Chloe is no raging pit bull out to savage man and beast - she is a pretty old fashioned Staffordshire Bull Terrier full of life and enthusiasm and one who is planning to be a faithful companion to her owner.
Bless her multi coloured socks.
There's an empty dog bed in my kitchen, whenever she decides to come and stay.
