Collie Husky German Shepherd Mix
Kadri is a Collie Husky German Shepherd Mix. She is a nice calm good girl, plenty of energy and loves to chew things. She’s just a puppy but so far looks and personality are strongly leaning towards husky.
Kadri loves to be outside running around, so far not much of a digger. Really good with small animals, (Cats, Kittens, Bunnies) She likes to chase them but will stop if the animal seems too distressed. Couldn’t ask for a cuter, happier, more friendly puppy.
Doberman Pinscher Shiba Inu Mix
Finley is just a ball of fun. She’s got the goofy and loving nature of a Shiba, and the attentiveness of a Dobie. She loves the bark park, and is always so high energy. We love to cuddle up and take naps too.
Finley was actually taken to the humane society the first time because her first owners thought she was too big for their liking (keep in mind, she is only like 30 lbs). Another family then adopted her, and unfortunately brought her back to the humane society, claiming that she has a wild and hyper personality that they didn’t like. And then she was rescued by my roommate!
Everything that made those other families not like her are exactly WHY i love her! I’ve never had a better, and smarter fur baby.
Yorkshire Terrier Toy Poodle Mix
From Tami: Kiki is a yorkiepoo, Yorkshire Terrier Toy Poodle Mix. She is all about her family yet very independent. She’s 3 years old and weighs in at 9 pounds. She started out with dark colors, black and brown, and gradually went blond/blue as she aged.
Kiki has all the attributes of a yorkie minus the long straight coat. She has a one layer curly coat and does not shed, so we keep her in a puppy cut most of the year. We let it grown during the colder months and have never had a problem with matting.
She loves to run in circles then pass out with you on the couch. She is very smart and a new trick takes a matter of hours. If someone yells “bang” she’ll fall over dead, something my dad taught our springer when I was a kid.
Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Rottweiler Mix
From Sarah: Penny is a very energetic, protective dog and is full of personality. She loves to play fetch and swim. Penny is territorial with her toys and with other dogs during walks. She is friendly in open areas such as a dog beach or park.
As a puppy, she once caught a squirrel about to run up a tree. She held the squirrel in her mouth proudly without injuring it. Penny let it go once I told her to do so. She can jump very high and is a fast runner. She weighs about 50 lbs, sheds a lot and has a beautiful brindle and pointy ears. This girl was rescued as a puppy and we always assumed she was part German Shepherd. I recently sent a DNA test in and it turns out she is mostly Rottweiler, NV Duck Tolling Retriever and Border Collie.
Border Collie Labrador Retriever Mix
Our sweet Maple was a rescue. We were told she was found as a stray, but given her stellar personality is a bit hard to believe.
She’s managed to charm the pants off of everyone by how affectionate, sweet, and obedient she is. Everyone is her friend, there are no real strangers to her – she’ll approach anyone. She’s curious and playful on top of it all, so there’s never really a dull moment.
My boyfriend and I really lucked out, and we adore our new fur baby. Her papers say Lab mix, but our vet – and others – suspect that there’s a healthy amount of Collie in her heritage. Hence her easygoing nature, and high intelligence. Height-wise she comes to mid calf, and is lean but she’s incredibly strong.
Chow Chow Lab Mix
From Marcus: Sasha is a very easy-going dog. Truly a Lab personality. She has a purple tongue. We did a DNA test on her. It came back as 75% undetermined, and the remaining 25% mostly Lab, and some Chow. Who knows what the undetermined part is. Maybe German Shepherd Dog. She certainly has the coat for it. Sasha gets along great with her Miniature Schnauzer brother. She is a snuggle-bug with her human family.
Blue Heeler Shetland Sheepdog Mix
From Heidi: Honey is a Blue Heeler Shetland Sheepdog Mix. Honey is five months old she looks more like her father. Her father is a sheltie, but has the spots and coat of a heeler .
She is very eager to please, is vocal , and loves learning new tricks she is the perfect mix of the two breeds. Honey was born in a litter with 5 sisters 4 including herself. She is sables, one sibling is black and white, and one blue like the mother. She loves being the center of attention and making new friends. All Honey wants out of life is a soft place to lay, finding crumbs and belly rubs.
Dachshund Bulldog Mix Breed
Meika is very loving, playful, and definitely cuddly! She is a Dachshund Bulldog mix Breed. She can be a bit hard headed but definitely a great companion!! As of right now she is 4 months old and weighs 13lb. super smart and has a nose on her like no other! I can’t hide anything from her!
She loves chewing bones and squeaking squeaker toys. Meika is amazing with my two year old as well! I wouldn’t trade my Meika (pronounced mee-ka) for the world!
I’m excited to see how big she will get as I’ve never seen a Dachshund Bulldog Mix Breed like this in person!
Lab Pit Bull Mix
Kona “KaiKai” is a Lab Pit Bull Mix rescue. I adopted her in California when she was 16 weeks old and brought her here to Hawaii a few years ago. She’s now almost 6 years old. She is brilliant, the smartest dog I’ve ever had. She’s an awesome communicator and faithful companion to my autistic adult son. She loves going to the beach and going for car rides. She’s 81 lbs, stocky, fold over ears, small white patch on chest and neck. This girl is very protective, and food motivated.
She looks very much like a lab, but has an American Pit Bull Terrier (APBT) body. KaiKai loves to retrieve and has a high prey instinct. She doesn’t like to be held down tightly or smothered, she is very alpha and prefers to lead the pack. Because she is so smart, she coerces other dogs to do things for her, take food off the counters or bring her toys. She learns quickly and is very manipulative by being so darn cute! Her father was a purebred black Labrador and her mother a blue nose APBT. She’s the love of our lives…a very special girl.
Border Collie German Shepherd Mix
Her mother was a shelter dog. The only thing they determined was that she was a Border Collie German Shepherd Mix. At a young age, her mother was hit by a car. She underwent a surgery that the doctors said would affect her the rest of her life – she would never have puppies. Then one day, her mother got pregnant. It was a shock to my parents, but it was even more of a shock when she had her puppies in the basement, on the laundry pile. And so, Princess was born.
Princess has to be mixed with something else. I’ve asked the vet before and he said he would’ve guessed she’s a purebred border collie. With the facts known about her mother, I knew it couldn’t be true.
Princess is currently 14 years old and still loves to hunt. Our other dogs all follow her. She has made herself well known in our neighborhood for she runs around the fields killing woodchucks all day.
When she comes home, she likes to lay on her bed and snore until she wakes herself up.
Basset Hound Rottweiler Mix
From Shawn: This is Qotsa. She is 16 weeks old in this picture. My 16 year old passed away in January as a result we were not ready for a new puppy. A friend heard about her showed me a picture of the conditions she was living in. She had been left alone night and day. It pulled on my heart strings. We rescued her Feb 28, 2016.
She is a loud hound with a willful spritely attitude. Her legs are short and very Bassett. She looks so awesome when she runs.
I am so looking forward to knowing her. I have rescued 3 dogs in my life and I have been the luckiest dog mom…. RESCUE
American Staffordshire Terrier Border Collie Mix
From Maryann: This is Buddy. He has never met a stranger. Certified Therapy Dog and Good Canine Citizen. Loves everything, but squirrels he hates squirrels. Lives with my husband and I, and a feline and canine sister.
He is the largest lapdog I know and loves to give kisses. He adores children and PetSmart. Nothing makes him happier than mommy love time except well maybe Busy Bones. Twice a month he visits Hospice patients and shares all of his love with them. Literally the best dog I have ever had.
Greyhound German Shepherd Mix
From Jelani: This is Junji. She looks like a German Shepherd Mix with speedy of a Greyhound. Slim and muscular at eleven months she stands at the shoulder 28 inches. Very friendly towards any and everyone unless you approach her in a threatening manner. Loves to play with other dogs was very skittish when first adopted but now she’s a big pest and brothers everyone wakes me up most nights to play.
It is great living with her little American Pit Bull Terrier Labrador Retriever mix sister and also bring a bigger dog she surprisingly very clean and took only a few days to completely house break I’ve had her since two months and was labeled as Boxer mix. She has so many characteristics of so many dogs I guessed and said Labrador Retriever Greyhound German Shepherd Mix. But you judge waiting on DNA results now.
Harrier Hound Mix
We adopted One Eyed Jack or Jack/Jacky, as we call him, when he was about 3 months old. When we first met him, we noticed he was blind in one eye, hence the pirate name :).
We really have no idea what kind of dog he is, definitely a country mutt though! His papers said three different things, Pittbull mix, Terrier mix, and Rat Terrier. When we brought him to our vet she said that he probably is none of those things, but more like a Mountain Cur, or some other hound mix.
He is from Georgia; the vet said this type hunting hound mix breed is common in the southern US. He is now a little over 1 year old and we are still hearing lots of different guesses, the most common is Beagle, but he is a little taller and heavier than the average at 55lbs, but there is some other breed there for sure anyway. I think he looks like a Harrier/Pointer/Fox hound/St. Bernard/Terrier/Lab/Feist/Cur mix, haha.
American Mutt Personality
He wiggles like a boxer, has webbed toes like a retriever, has lots of black spots on his belly and nose, has lots of loose skin on his neck, holds his tail medium to upright and curved, sheds a lot and year round, loves to swim, has been obsessed with fetch since we brought him home as a pup, is quick to learn and intelligent, but very stubborn at times, very active and enjoys lots of mental and physical stimulation, has a great homing beacon – always comes back when off leash, he has a loud, deep bark and doesn’t howl at all, he is very protective of our home and two little boys, but excessively friendly once he knows the person/animal is safe, non-stop lover – always wants to snuggle, kiss and play, he even shares his bones and toys (to a degree).
Basenji American Pit Bull Terrier Mix
Alert,,,,barker,,,hunter,,,great watch dog but a very loud deep bark due to Shepard.
This isn’t an apartment dweller,,,its a ranch ,,,runner dog. These breeds aren’t happily contained as they are hunters /working breeds.
You need a large run that has good fencing and a watchful owner as the basenji is a good climber! These dogs run and are as aloof as cats its in their nature.
So be careful,,,aware of their traits prior to owning. Not an apartment breed!!!!
They take lots of hard exercise ,,,non tiring nature,,lovable and smart,,,very willing to train,,,learn.
Owners need to learn about basenji breed to be the correct home for one,,,they are a very active dog. And extremely vocal. They chase anything that runs,,,and may not come right aay…read up on breed please….learn all you can from knowledgeable sources.
I love my basenji/shepherd mix Dorylyn
