What dog (mix) comes in these colors?

I was at the Brewton, AL Humane Society tuesday and they have this really cool looking dog that I've never seen the likes of. They may have a pic up by now on the web site. It is a large dog, sort of reminds me of an Anatolian Shepherd, but it is black and silver/gray brindle. If I didn't have a houseful of dogs I'd probably have adopted it just because it's so unique looking. Seemed like a sweet dog, just very unusual color. It's at the same shelter as Ken the WGSD.

Beautiful Akita!

Went to go see if the dog you were talking about was up yet. They have a dog listed as a St. Bernard that is certainly NOT a St Bernard. lol

Were you talking about this one?

this looks like the dog she's describing. you're right - i cant put my finger on the breed exactly, but i can see the anatolian resemblance. my guess tho is that its a gsd with a drop of akita. for all we know a smidget of greyhound could be causing that coloration as well.

Brindle can be found in sighthounds, Boxers, Akitas, Dutch shepherds, and terriers. I can tell you one thing for certain: one of the dog's parents was definately brindle. Brindle is dominant over all other colors.

I think it is Miss Muffett. http://www.petfinder.com/petnote/dis...petid=11119416 I don't remember her looking that much GSD in the face but I really didn't look at her long. That Akita is stunning, I've never seen one that color. I've seen lots of brindle dogs but never one that color. I wish I had a place for that dog, she's just too cool looking to stay in a shelter and how in the heck do you lose a dog that color, it's so unusual it would be easy to identify. Not sure if she was a stray or not, don't remember if her paperwork was up there or not.
That's a dog I'd do a Wisdom Panel DNA test on just out of curiosity. Makes me want to donate one to them just to find out! lol
