Who saved who? (my new pup)

We found each other at the shelter today, but I'm not sure if I saved him or he saved me. I tell myself he's a Boxer mix, but I don't know. He's just getting some adult teeth now. I love him already. Welcome to the pack, Mister bunny-buns boxer! (name suggestions are welcome)

How about Rocky as in Rocky Marciano, a famous boxer.

Amazingly cute pup. Perfect markings. How big is he? Looks like some terrier in there to me.

He's adorable! I love hybrids. smiling smiley

It's hard to tell how big he is; how much does he weigh?

Doesn't look like a boxer to me.

My first impression was he looked like a herder mix of some kind - sort of like this guy [en.wikipedia.org]

A real cutie by the way - has a real sweet intelligent look.

Congratulations !

What a cutie! No wonder he came home with you. And look at those legs and paws!

I bet a name will come to you as you get to know/see his personality.

A nice looking Mutt. Classic 60's appearance of a dog. Looks very intelligent and active. And those Paws ! I'd recommend "Sasquatch" or "BigFoot" or something of that genre...

He's about 16" at the shoulder. The shelter said he was about 15 lbs but I haven't weighed him. I think there might be some terrier in there, too.

I though he looked bigger than 15 lbs in the picture.

If he's 16" at the shoulder it seems he should weigh more than that too.

Well whatever he is he sure is cute.

Adorable. Good on you for adopting him!

Looks like boxer-spaniel-terrier...a true All-American mutt, hearty to the core!

name ideas:

Sparky
Gavin
Lou (or Louie)
Murray
Jeff

What a handsome pup! I wish you many many happy years together.
I fully understand what you mean when you wonder if he saved you.
My dogs have taught me much.

Is your pup related to my friend's recent shelter's adoption - our "step son" - named Freckles?

What a great dog. I agree about the intelligent look. Some dog names I've known that I thought were pretty good: Havoc, Harley, and Trouble. I think the names Buster and Buddy as suggested by decocritter are fun, because he does seem like the classic all-American dog.

Would it be rash to suggest that you name him "Leader"?

Baxter says hello, and congrats on escaping the shelter- from a former "death row" mutt.

"Leader' is a cute name for a dog


He looks just like "Flip" from my first grade Reader.

Do you remember "Tom" and "Betty"? "Patsy"

I don't know much about dogs so feel free to chastise, correct or ignore me if I'm wrong but...

I'm thinking the Boxer-esque look might really be from a Boston Terrier instead.

With that white stripe down his nose, how about 'Badger'? :c)
Actually, I'm leaning toward 'Bennie'.
My first impression of him was Boston Terrier. It would account for the size and markings.

"Barley"



Sometimes it is what it is...
and then there's times when it's really better.
