Aw I can't tell if he's pure bread. But bless you for taking him in. I used to live in Las Vegas. The desert is such a harsh place to dump a dog. How'd you find him? (long story please).

He is handsome even if he's mix or not.

He is a great looking dog!

He reminds me a bit of my GSD/Chow, but also reminds me of a GSD we had in rescue who was from some kind of working lines...

So I am saying I have no idea! Congrats to Hector!

Maybe on his way to the gene pool a Cattle Dog crossed his path...... That was my first impression when I saw his head. Great looking dog! Good luck together!!

I find most our dogs are able to use their 'thumbs' anyway, and wouldn't remove them.
I have one dog who has his removed and he seems to wince when I rub that area.
I know it is off topic but I think "they" remove too many body parts from dogs.

P.S. I went through your thread and read your 'long story'. So sad but I'm happy you and your hounds and your GSD are together. It seems like it was meant to be. Bless you for opening up your heart...It takes a lot to do so. Believe me, I understand/know c:

Great looking dog, thank you for taking him in.

I think he looks like he has a small amount of pit bull. The slight indentation in the middle of the skull, the large, round eyes, the heavy and broad face, and the broad chest seem consistent with pb/shep mixes I have seen. But I'd say he looks 15/16ths GSD.
