What kind of dog is this?

We're looking to adopt a rescue dog, we've done this before and know it's not always straightforward. Anyway due to lockdown we can't visit any kennels or shelters as we would have done before so having to rely on websites to locate suitable dogs. I've seen this beautiful girl, she's a crossbreed and I was wondering what she might be? I think she's possibly part Labrador but not sure what else. I'm not great on dog breeds so what do you think?

Staffie x lab maybe. Shes gorgeous 😍

I don't know but she's lovely 😍

I'd say some bull breed or mastiff in there, and maybe some lab as you say. Definitely a big strong girl!

Bull/ Mastiff, maybe some Stafford x Lab type. She’s a beauty.

Stafford? Staffie, stupid autocorrect!

Bulldog x lab - bulldog as so muscular!

It's a Jemima dog!! You must be local-ish to me OP. She's a beauty isn't she.

Depending on size, my first guess would be either a mastiff or staffy....

Staffy x mastiff or staffy x dogue de Bordeaux?

midnightstar66 Sat 04-Jul-20 22:37:54

She's quite wrinkly so I'd assume lab crossed with a looser skinned large breed.

I’m seeing shar pei in the face

traincarbus Sat 04-Jul-20 22:40:18

Yes sharpei! I was thinking of wrinkly breeds hence dog de Bordeaux.

Twirlytwoo Sat 04-Jul-20 22:42:06

I was thinking lab x staffie but agree with PP she could have shar pei in her. She looks cute!

frustrationcentral Sat 04-Jul-20 22:45:54

I think she looks Sharpei and Labrador. She's a beauty! Look at those "take me home" eyes... 😍

Mastiff x something or Staffie x lab? One of the sweetest most adorable dogs I've ever met was a rescue staffie x lab, she was beloved by her owners and willed to me if anything ever happened to them smile

I have a feeling from the strange perspective that she is massive and they've tried to make her body look smaller.

Staff / lab / mastiff combo ?

Not sure on breed, I think PP’s probably right with bull breed or a wrinkly large breed like shar pei but I couldn’t read and run because she’s beautiful!

@Ohffs66 yes it's Jemima dog, she's in Cardiff Dogs Home. How do you know her? After all the mastiff comments I think she might be a bit too powerful for us.

@MitziK that's what my DH says too, he thinks they've tried to make her look smaller. We've plenty of room but she would probably knock my 10 year old flying.

should ask how big is she to the shoulder. Can't tell from pic.

Scattyhattie Sun 05-Jul-20 02:00:30

She's pretty! Its worth enquiring some bigger dogs are gentle & walk nicely on lead etc so less likely to knock over than expect.

The odd angle is probably more lack of photography skill as it would make more work for staff to have people enquire and then instantly dismiss on size.
I want that fence.

I have name changed for this as the photo is very outing , this is my boy he was a staff x lab he was about 2 foot high at the shoulder and a strong dog but very gentle and did not grow up untill he was about 12 years old , he is 15 in this pic ,
He lived til he was almost 19

I would say your girl is the same cross in which case all been well you will have a lively playful strong and very good natured dog

lavendersquare I know the trainer that does a lot of of work at CDH. I've PMed you with some info smile

Lab x bull breed. I agree they've tried to make her look smaller but she looks huge and she's solid muscle.
