Any guesses on this mixed breed?
« on: August 25, 2006, 05:55:47 pm »
I'm attaching pictures of a dog named Cosmo. He came in as a 4 month old puppy at the shelter when I used to work there. He stayed there for over a year and finally in 2004 he was adopted. This April, I found him wandering the countryside and couldn't find his owners. So I brought him home and he's been with us ever since. I didn't have the heart to take him back to the shelter after he had lived in a cage for over a year. :( The vet said she was concerned about his weight so we decided to foster him while he fattened up but now that he is at a healthy weight we really haven't really tried all that hard to find him a home.  :D

Anyway, I've always wondered what kind of mix he is. He talks and woo's like a husky or akita. He's really tall, I'd measure him but one of the dogs chewed the tape measure last night after I had tried to measure my Saint's height.  ::)

Any guesses?

He looks like he has some shepherd in him.  Whatever he is he sure is a cutie.

His head reminds me of an Australian Cattle dog a lot. But that tail curling...hmmm . Maybe some husky too like you said. He's very pretty! So, are you keeping him for sure yet?  ;)
