Thanks, but how can you tell? Cause of his snout? I think he's mixed with lab

Cute!

Perhaps not because he's all beat up. The picture is too small to tell if it's just scar tissue without fur. Looks like has black skin. Lab, no, head and chest would be wider and rounder. Either american working farm dog (no consideration given to coloring) or some sort of hound mix.

I'm not sure. I am not familiar with whites. But I have seen some poorly bred black and tans look very similar. I love it when people can say without a doubt that a dog is mixed without seeing a picture of the dog standing up.

Also, with all the variations of this breed, due to what they were bred for and where, and then the mixtures between the lines of this breed, it is a breed that has a LOT of variation.

If someone is telling you the dog is purebred, and has the sire and dam, and they look purebred, then you have to decide whether or not it is possible. And even then, sometimes a pup looks more like a grand sire than either parent.

yes, without seeing a sideview or a height reference or knowing the age. This could be a skinny teenage white that some other dog knocked around.

My pure black female has some white on her nose - it's a scar from when she was 3 months old and Otto used to hold her bitey mouth closed.

I got him from a pound, they said he was white GSD, but I disagrees cause he had yellow on his back and round snout. He was very skinny when I got him... And skittish

I'm pretty sure he isn't pure, I got him from a pound. They said he was white GSD, but he has to be mixed with something cause he has yellow along his back and a wider snout. I thought he'd be mix with lab but idk now
