My buddies mom is in town from England, and shes staying at some place thats right at the base of some mountains, 15 miles from... anything pretty much. They said that they were washing their truck, and this dog ran up and wouldnt leave.

They took care of it for a few days, but cant keep it, as they dont live here. So I said I would take it. I have no idea how old he is... I named him Dexter :-D Cutest puppy ive ever had!!

By the way, I dont have a good picture of it, but his ears stick straight up. Hes just shy around people, so hes always got them down, but when he gets used to them, or its just me and him, they stick right up all the time.

I'd say a mix...most Mal's don't have fluffy tail/coats. I'd get that pup wormed regardless. Looks a bit bloated?
Cute puppy whatever is in the genes!

Not a malinois. Head shape isn't correct. Any idea how old he might be? Could be a shepherd mix but looks like his adult coat is in and paws aren't real big like there's some growing into them to do. Growth plates you can tell on the legs aren't very defined either. Wouldn't figure he'd get much taller if at all.

You dont think hes gonna get taller?... Really? Im not a fan of little dogs, and I can hold this lil guy in one hand... he better get bigger, lol.

Bloated? I dont think so at all. hes very very very skinny. He was a stray 15 miles from nowhere, only been eating normal for a couple days, so he shouldnt be.

He's a mix and it's hard to say with what. The head is not at all right for a malinois and I don't really see gsd in there. He's super cute. How old did the vet estimate him to be?

Has anyone tried to locate a possible owner of this pup? In OR there was a court case of a situation like this where the previous owner, who lost the dog, saw him with his new owner in town, sued and won, but not after the dog spent 6 months in a shelter during this case.

Malinois mix? The black markings on his chest push me toward malinois. That type of coloration is relatively unique to the malis. Cute pup, whatever he is, and I think he will get bigger. He still has very much of a puppy build.

What's your boy's name?

He's a beautiful little pup regardless of what he's mixed with!!! My guess would be some type of GSD mix.

Was he checked/scanned for a chip?
This is the reason i am so scared not to have a bright green tattoo in the pups ear. Many people don't check if a dog they find is chipped. anyways he is super cute.

He is cute. Before you fall in love with him, put up found puppy signs. Take to vet to see if microchipped. No chip and no response to signs, then go ahead and fall in love.

Cute little guy and sure looks happy to have chosen himself a person!!

Even with a purebred GSD puppy, you'll see experienced owners on here making all KINDS of calls. Honestly, they change so much and so rapidly it can be hard to tell until they've grown through all their awkward puppy stages.

I'd say if you're already hooked, and ready to train train train, he's just perfect no matter which breed or mix of breeds he is!
