I picked up Tazzy 5 years ago at a locaal shelter when she was about six. I have always been curious about her breeds. I have been told shiba inu,and charpe by a breeder, and also been asked whether she is part pit. She is 26 lbs. and her body shape goes more towards a shiba inu because of her stature, ears and tail. She has med to short hair with what seems to have a whooley undercoat. Her head and mixed brindle coloring throw me off. I have also been told that only chow and charpe have purple tongues,and she has alot of purple in her tongue. She has a large head and huge teeth for her size. The shape of her paws resemble a racoons lol... Part dog, Part racoon??? LMAO Please help me out with this dilemma!!!
