What breeds do you see?

I'd like to hear some opinions on a "broader spectrum". I got Allie when she was 12 weeks old. Some kids were selling puppies in the Wal-Mart parking lot, and I couldn't resist. I'd been thinking of getting a second dog as a companion for my other dog, Matilda.

Sooo glad I bought my Allie. She's been such a good dog. She practically house broke herself, and I can't even remember having to work with her on basic commands - she just kind of caught on.

They "said" she was a purebred American Bulldog, but with no papers, and for $25 at Wal-Mart? I dunno. For a while, when she was growing, I started to think she might be pit and the kids were saying American Bulldog because it didn't sound as "bad" as pit (the bad stigma and all). But she doesn't really look like either, but she's definitely the bully type.

As for "her", I'll tell you a bit - maybe it will help.

Her disposition is very chill, I have to say, despite the fact that she's super high energy. She's just fine with whatever. She's never been aggressive in the least with any other dogs or people. She's got a healthy confidence, and shes not really submissive or dominate. She just loves everybody. She isn't a big fan of the water, although she can be coaxed in if you have a toy. She loves to chase things and fetch. She's not very slobbery. Not very hardheaded, listens well and is smart as a whip. Not quite as agile as Matilda (a border collie X), but super athletic. Very muscley and bulky.

This is her as a puppy:

And there she is as she is grown. She may have gotten a little bigger since. She's a little over a year now. She looks kind of mean in that picture, actually. If I didn't know her I'd be scared if I saw that running at me, haha. Totally not her though. If I was counting on her for protection, I'd be out of luck! She'd probably pee on herself.

She's about 60-70 pounds now I'm guessing. I'll know for sure when she heads to the vet again next month. She's a big girl. Her paws are enormous.

This shows her size a bit more. Her at 10 months - good sizing photo - wee bit bigger now.

She looks like a boxer pit cross. Her paws and wide chest make me believe that. Shelters will also do that, say its a lab cross. NOT is a pit cross because it is more likly to sell that way. Sad isnt it! I work at a dog grooming shop and i work with a lady who has 4 pit bulls/ pit crosses. Nicest dogs ever and ALL VERY well mannered! One even walks by all the kennels and shuts the dogs its so funny!!!!

I agree with Casey! She's super cute!

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.
