Long story short? He is a rescue puppy from the pound. My mother in law told me she was bringing me a Sharpie .lol. Nope not what came home. I know he is mixed. Some say, a type of lab or retriever, sometimes sharpie in the eyes when he wants to give the sad look. lol. Anyways.. Anyone have any ideas??  4 pictures included..


When we first got him - Summer 09 (above picture)

His first family photo (above photo)


November 09 (above picture)

Any Ideas? He is still a puppy ! And very big - and  still growing!!

I'd go with golden retriever/german shepherd/maybe some lab.

I see a lot of lab in him.  I see no sign of Shar pei in him at all.  If this was my dog I would call him a lab/ hound mix or a golden retriever/ lab mix.

I say lab/hound.  Does he have any spots on his tongue?

Yea, no sharpie. But it is a good joke with friends now .lol.

He is a great dog, full of energy !! Wow - you would think he drank a gallon of rockstar energy drink! He loves the snow, Great with the kids, and other animals.

And wow dont think about breaking in.lol. My husband came home early one morning with his full uniform on, he forgot something, Honey freaked out, didnt know it was him. I woke up to my dog barking and standing  at the hallway not letting my husband past where he was. - Honey was gaurding where the children where sleeping. Such a proud moment. lol.

He even shares his dog bones with our 1 year old. lol. They are the really big ones, She is at one end he is at the other. lol. to funny.

Now to only find him a friend. He needs another dog friend!!

THanks for the ideas.

It even says chinese sharpie on his paperwork from the pound. haa haa..

I would say some sort of lab mix, he looks a lot like my lab and they do get big.

I would say Lab/German Shepherd.  Oh and spots in the mouth or on the tongue doesn't necessarily mean anything.  Lots of breeds can have them.  I have 2 purebred Shetland Sheepdogs and the both have spots in their mouths.

Your last pic look just like my dog at home.  I mean color, size, body shape, everything.They could be twins.  Mine a rescue too.  We have him down as a lab mix.

I want to thank you for the earlier pic.  You gave me an idea of what my dog probable looked like as a puppy.  How much does he weigh right now?
