What breed of dog do you thinks she is?

Sorry if there is a better board to put this on... I might be blind but I figured here was as good a place as any.

We have a doggie here who is wondering what people think she is. I was told Chow mix, I do see a little Chow however what is the mix? She's four years old, 21" tall not real big (Considering my other dog is a 100 pound White German Shepherd) she's a bit thin yet (Just got her) so I think she'll look different a little more filled out but any guess? I have a guess but don't want to sway anyones opinion.






Also were are stuck on a name, Jesper (Love the name Jasper but she's a girl so... Jesper), Foxy (She looks like a fox!) Ginger (Her color)
Haven't thought of anything else that's really stuck....

I think she's a Chow mix.

Looks like maybe she could have some Akita in her. I do definitely see Chow. She looks a lot like my friends dog who is an Akita Chow mix. She's very cute!

Are her gums and tongue purple? That is a Chow trait and some mixes still have it. As for the cross, I don't know. In that last pic, her head/face look very pit bull to me. But I would be willing to bet money that she is at least half chow.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I'd say Chow mixed with either Akita or Husky. I say Husky because she still has a huge coat like a Chow yet she seems lighter boned than a pure Chow or a Akita/Chow mix. Also I would think that if she were part Akita she'd be much bigger since Akitas are pretty large dogs. She also kinda has a Husky-ish head and smallish pointed ears like a Husky, Chows and Akitas both kinda have rounded ear tips. =)

But I dunno. I do however know that she is super cute! =D

she is a spitz of some sort. Finnish spitz maybe???? What I am sure of is that she is super cute!

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Akitas aren't that big actually. Some of them can be I think but they can also be on the small side. And they have that finer bone structure. Mixed with a Chow she could get the size she has.

I say Shiba Inu, or a cross.

They are a smaller version of the Akita, also from Japan (my grandma bred and showed Shibas for years, still owns a couple). The come in 3 AKC recognized colors: Black & Tan, Red, and Sesame. AKC lumps them into the nonsporting section in shows. The breed itself is several thousand years old, and was originally used in Japanese hunting. Packs could bring down animals as large as bears. They are runners, and love to be loose outside. Grandma describes them as being very catlike, as dogs go. Puppies ears flop down until they reach a certain age, and the tails can be either "sickle" (a single curve back over the back), or wound tight (Sis and I always called that "the donut butt" )




Counterclockwise: Dark red, sesame, black and tan.

I wish I had decent pics of Gram's girls from their show days...

Shiba Inu/Chow seems possible actually. What a interesting combo for someone to cross.
Here are daylight photos, and next to our GSD.
I could see Finnish spitz or Healer/Cattle dog mixed with Chow also but she does seem like a little Akita.
She is for sure Chow x something as she has a blue spotted tongue & very strait back legs.
