What breeds would you think this dog is a cross of?

We're hoping to adopt this lovely cross breed (mongrel!) dog and are just waiting for our home check.

It's a romanian dog so I think there might be carpathian shepard in there but what else and how big do you think she islikely to get? She's 7 months old

She's so cute!

German shepherd mix maybe?

JazzAnnNonMouse Sun 12-Mar-17 14:20:14

She's lovely isn't she!
I originally thought German shepard but apparently capathian shepards and Caucasian shepards are which are breed's I'd not heard of before.

I think she's mixed with something smaller as her paws don't look all that big?

Belgian malinois.

I knew before I read your post that this was a Romanian dog, all of the rescues that I've seen advertised as coming from Romania look like that one.

I'd guess she's going to be mid-sized. Not huge.

Shes lovely!

She's gorgeous! You better adopt her before I do, she does look German Shepard to me too haven't heard of those other breeds!

I think she's definitely a 'shepherd' type but definitely not a German Shepherd. Actually, Belgian Malinois is the wrong colour.

Just googled Carpathian Sheepdog - she's definitely got that colouring, so I'd say there's definitely some of that in her.

Keep us updated on how it goes!

She's apparently malinois? Belgian shepard cross

This is my Rommie.
No idea what he is, he's medium size. I'm thinking of doing one of those dna tests.

Aw she's lush. No idea what she is but I want her.

Hi Jazz this is my Romanian hound, 'chillaxing' after a training session

airforsharon Sat 18-Mar-17 06:58:10

....sorry to answer your question, I couldn't guess but Rommies can be a right old mix bag. I think I read on here that someone recently DNA tested their dog so perhaps you could do that? It'd be fascinating to find out.

JazzAnnNonMouse Sat 18-Mar-17 08:12:54

I read that dna testing in dogs isntvery acurate if the breed is mainly found abroad as the database that they use might not have many of that type and so matches might not be found.

Your dog is lovely v handsome. Have you had any problem's like food guarding etc?

airforsharon Sat 18-Mar-17 09:08:06

Ah that's a shame. She'll just have to stay a mystery then smile She's a beauty whatever her mix.

No problems with food guarding but she's nervous around other dogs (always been completely fine with my other 2) and will growl/snap if they get too close to her. I started puppy training classes with her 3 months ago, mainly to help her socialise and she's coming on pretty well. The main problem I have is barking - she's very quiet out and about - I think being a bit nervy means she doesn't want to draw attention to herself - but at home she really 'guards' the back garden and will bark at the slightest noise. I've not yet found a way to stop her, save bringing her straight back in, just hoping in time as she settles it'll decrease.

I have to admit that I did it all the wrong way. I fell in love with him from a photo and didn't meet him until the day we collected him.
We have been extremely lucky in that he doesn't resource guard, loves people including small children and is very socialised with other dogs.
He really is an amazing dog and is loved by everyone who meets him. We're so lucky to have him.
