Sorry forgot to add I don't know his age! Think he's a puppy.

How old? Looks like a pug crossed with a bigger breed

No idea - looks like the snout of a pug along with the same sort of fur type crossed with a larger midsize breed.

Hard to tell until he's fully grown though. He looks about 4 months old maybe but that's a total guess - could be 6 months maybe and pretty much fully grown.

Looks lovely though.

Ah, cross post. He looks a bit like a jack Russell x pug, but bigger so maybe a bigger terrier type

Pug lab mix? He has the lab face, he is very cute.

I'm certain he's got no pug in him as I ha e two and the noses are not similar in any waygrin

That’s a gorgeous type of dog! Mixed breed - the best, in my opinion.

dancerdancer Mon 18-Jun-18 21:05:43

Is there staffy in him?
Possibly jack Russell? But then also pug like too?

Dh thinks Rhodesian ridgeback but I think their colour is usually deeper?

Maybe boxer mix, I didn't think of that until someone said it. Is he yours?

springmachine Mon 18-Jun-18 21:06:48

He'll be snory, farty and be quite happy to snuggle up on a lap though if that's the case.
Probably quite greedy and if so should be easy to train using treats.

(My vizsla wasn't fussed with food in the puppy classes where all the labs and pugs did anything you asked with a bit of sausage in your palm)

Could be a German Shepherd, Yellow lab cross?

Haven't a clue but it's sooooo cute.

Looks a bit like this pug, spaniel cross

dancerdancer Mon 18-Jun-18 21:07:53

I think now you’ve said it that he’s ridgeback x staffy. Like this one...

springmachine Mon 18-Jun-18 21:08:02

Rhodesians are rusty brown colour and usually have a rotty type facial shape with a thick ridge of fur across their back. Not too sure I can see that in him

sallysparrow157 Mon 18-Jun-18 21:08:25

A puggle maybe (pug beagle cross). Don’t have the airway probs a pug can have but I’d imagine (to put it politely) they would be very food-motivated!

springmachine Mon 18-Jun-18 21:08:54

Beagle is a good shout. Very similar build body wise

MrsHouseBrownie Mon 18-Jun-18 21:09:48

Looks like Puggle. A Pug/beagle cross. V popular in this area few years ago. Id say young adult dog, not a puppy.

Louislovesmud Mon 18-Jun-18 21:09:49

For reference, this is a pic of a "jug"

WinkyisbackontheButterBeer Mon 18-Jun-18 21:10:15

Actially, more pug- ridge back

sallysparrow157 Mon 18-Jun-18 21:10:26

Beagles have quite long snouts so with a pug-beagle cross you lose the pug nose
