I have no idea why someone would have come to that conclusion. I see some Spitz, could be chow, or American Eskimo, or Pom, hard to say. I would also say some Shepherd. But really its better to guess with adult dogs. Maybe they will ahve the DNA testing done!

That's why I put the LOL after Doxie-Poo cause I thought it was hysterical that someone got a daschund poodle mix out of this one. Who knows how whoever it was came to that conclusion because like Mommalovesweiners said I don't see ANY doxie in him at all. It is so much easier to determine breed mix when they are older. I see Chow and that's about it.
I bet this pup was just dumped at the side of the road. If no one in the area is missing him then it's highly unlikely this little guy wandered so far from home. Such a damn shame.
Golden huh ? Do Chows have flopped over ears like that when they are babies ? I was trying to think of a breed that does have those triangular bent over ears and all I could come up with is sheltie, which I am not sure I see sheltie in there but who knows.
On another thread on here there was a full grown dog that had the same look and people were saying something about a red assie I think that is what it was called. I think it looks like a puppy verson of that dog.
I can see some either Australian shepherd, or even a Australian cattle dog in there. The ears in my opinion are very aussie looking. I also agree with the idea of a golden mix. It is possible there are several different breeds, or mixes in there.
When I look head on at this pup, I can see Dachshund in the shape of his nose and something about his eyes. Since they're blue (if the picture is true, he could also be part Malamute, since they come in red and white. I wonder what colour his tongue is?
I see chow for sure, and I want to say Sheltie actually. Although the color made me think Golden Retriver, the facial characteristics dint convince me of that. Would be very interesting to see the pup when it is older and matured. Many puppies have a 'generic' look about them and until the adult head and body etc start to come out, it could be a large array of options.
Chow/sheltie is what I keep going back to tough.
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It is about learning to dance in the rain.
