Default Can you tell the 'lines' of a dog with no pedigree?

I was just curious about that, cause Gus has no pedigree and I know certain lines are bred for doing certain things. I was wondering if I could get a general idea of what my dog may like/be good at by an educated guess I suppose? Sorry if this is a really stupid question, and feel free to tell me of it is..lol

no question is 'stupid.'

post photos of him standing, sitting etc.. and let us guess.

without pedigree, it will just be a guess.

Sometimes you can. I can usually recognize ASL and WGSL by pictures/seeing them in person. That's not to say I'm always right since I don't have their pedigrees

I asked the same thing when I got my GSD! She's BYB lines. Oh well! I think she's perfect.

Some dogs can you can see some very clear lineage (in our minds - like Anne said) but in others it is much more of a guess.

The best I can do as of right now:







If you need anything different, let me know..cause I'm not really sure of what's needed.

i couldn't tell you the lines of a dog if he were wearing
the pedigree/papers on his vest.

Lol. Wasn't even sure if he had any! I guess BYB lines as well? Lol. He's handsome and loves me. That's all that matters. I was just wondering if I could get an idea if he was maybe cut out for a creation kind of work? In think that's what I mean..
