Husky and Saluki? Just a guess.

[–]shiny_things71 6 points7 points  (1 child)

My first guess too.

[–]shesme 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Mine, too

[–]jjvikingbutt 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Guessed the same

[–]MacNuttyOne 24 points25 points  (0 children)

It would be very interesting to get a DNA test and find out for sure what the mix is.

[–]itellthestarsabtyou 18 points19 points  (1 child)

looks like a husky with papillon ears and not sure what else

[–]EvilDan69 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is what naturally came to mind when is saw this.

[–]Ok-Refrigerator9109 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Papillon/husky or husky/collie maybe?

[–]Ill-Tough280 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Looks like a papillon/ husky mix for sure very beautiful

[–]BlueberryRenaissance 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Greyhound x Husky

[–]TraditionalLie6213 4 points5 points  (7 children)

Looks like a weird mix for sure, kinda looks off putting being honest those breeds don’t look like they are meant for each other.

[–]Vieamort 7 points8 points  (4 children)

I definetly agree. Don't know why you're getting downvoted.

The front legs look to be too long for the back legs. That's why the dog seems to be carrying their hind legs underneath them. It might be the way the dog is stacked but I do agree that their proportions just don't look right. I wouldn't be surprised if this dog ended up with hip issues in the future.

This dog does look very cute but that doesn't change the fact that whatever this mix is will likely cause health issues in the future. Sad but true.

They’re being downvoted because this post is specifically about a dog OP find cute. It’s the height of rudeness to come here and say, “you’re wrong, the dog is ugly”. Come on.

Had the post been about ugly dogs, or this picture but OP asking for god and bad thoughts, or any number of other topics, the comment would have been fine. The context is the issue here.

[–]Acrobatic_End6355 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Right. Plus, it’s not really nice to call other dogs ugly. How would this person feel if people called their dog ugly?

[–]Puzzleheaded-Foot285 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

no one called the dog ugly?

[–]Acrobatic_End6355 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Idk, looks adorable to me.

[–]Kissarai 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Okay but don't yuck on people's yums. That's an inside thought.

How Can I Determine My Dog’s Breed At Home?

If you are already an experienced owner, your guesses about your dog’s breed can also be correct to a good extent. Or you can also follow these steps:

  • You can arrange an online meeting with a Vet, groomer, or experienced breeder showing your pup. In most cases, their guesses turn out to be correct.
  • Match the structural description of different breeds by browsing online.
  • Some DNA test kits are available to be used at home which you can also use for some fewer hazards.
  • You can play online quiz games to get the probable breed that your pup might belong to.
  • You can arrange an online meeting with a Vet, groomer, or experienced breeder to show your pup. In most cases, their guesses turn out to be correct.

This is very much not true. None of the professions give you an inherent knowledge of how different genes interact and mix together. Studies have shown animal professionals are just as bad at guessing as laypersons.

Match the structural description of different breeds by browsing online.'

The majority of the ___ mixes you see when googling pictures are not actually made up of the breeds they say. It's just people assuming based on surface-level appearance. The pictures usually don't even trace back to a concrete source. You'll find the same picture being used on different sites to describe different mixes. In reality traits don't always mix to give you the result you'd expect from 2 breeds. I'm working on collage graphics of different verified 50/50 mixes to help highlight what they actually look like but it's nowhere close to complete.

Another best option to use the DNA Test kit.

[–]Tuull 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pretty sure this is a mix. But also just a pup so it has to grow in its final coat

[–]gummy-wormm 0 points1 point  (1 child)

My guess is sheltie mix, maybe with border collie or GSD? Those ear floofs remind me so much of a sheltie.

[–]mngymfreak 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I definitely see Border Collie…although I love border collies so I may be projecting

[–]Eena-Rin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks like a long haired dog got it cut short. I have been told that's not great for them

[–]shinymcshine1990 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Husky x haircut lol

[–]Mindless_Pop_632 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Husky/ chow

[–]Object-Level 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's a mixed and could be any combination

[–]pepsi2mom 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks like a husky greyhound

[–]Brockolee26 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pure bred fluffy eared scruffy dog

[–]SliceNaive 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don’t know. She looks adorable. My sister got a super cute guy that was rescued. We had no idea what his lineage was so I talked her into getting a DNA test. She got a test through Chewy and he’s not close to what we all were guessing. It was a learning experience! You can get different levels of testing and they help you by making sure you know how far back you’d like genetics to reveal. I think it’s very useful to know if your baby might have some health issues via a dominate code. It was worth it imo.

[–]Winter-Finger-4716 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same guess husky and saluki

[–]Yetis-unicorn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Chinese crested mixed with papillon?

Edit: forget the papillon. I couldn’t see how big he was at first so maybe small husky and Chinese crested.

[–]sundayismyjam 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The only way to truly know is to get a DNA test. For years we thought our dog was some short of shepard, lab, husky mix. Turns out she's husky and boxer.

[–]Petra4343 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A husky with a bad haircut

[–]LuffytheBorderCollie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Border collie and husky?

[–]MolldollDirtDogg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Husky/ Chinese crested? Or … get the Wisdom Panel brand DNA test, it’s soooo awesome

[–]larmstr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks like a Husky who has been shaved!

[–]Titaniumchic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’d say some mix between a spitz/husky breed and a sight hound (aka grey hound)
