My guess would be German Shephard and Corgi

My computer is slow to load so all I saw was his color and his ears first and I immediately thought Red Heeler. Then upon seeing all of him I would say German Shepherd and Red Heeler. And a GSD mating with a RH would probably be easier than with a corgi!

Corgi/German Shepherd?

I am surprisesd how many people suggest corgi, which I’m assuming is just becuase of the yellow fur and pointy ears. Those two breeds would make an awkward mating sesh. 

He is by far mostly shepherd. I would say more than half. I would definitely agree with the lab. But I wouldn’t be surprised if he has a small percentage of several breeds in there.

I’m guessing part corgi based upon the stocky shortened legs, shape of the rump and coloring of the dog.  I think German Shepherd is the dominant of the mix.

A mix of a good boy crossed with a gooder boy. Ha. Looks mostly shepherd to me. Are you considering adopting him, I’m guessing??

j9marie :  Corgis crossed with shepherds are rare and look very different- just do a quick search. It’s also not a common or easy breeding to do.

He’s blatantly a shep considering the link is from shepherd rescue… And it is definitely his most dominant traits. There are many other dogs with stock and short legs many of which have been mentioned here.

Innerdonught :  I certainly don’t claim my guess is an educated one.  I was just explaining why I felt the dog resembled a Corgi.  Totally agree that Shepherd is dominant in this dog.  I’ve had my dog for a year now and still can’t figure out what he is! lol

When I first saw him I thought Shepherd x Shiba Inu.

What I find most interesting about him is his golden fur and straight tail, considering he most certainly has some german shepherd in him. I would guess Golden Retreiver, maybe? That might explain his fluffy coat and stocky stature, too. When I Googled that mix, I found this one: 

She looks pretty similar, but of course when it comes to mutts there’s really no limits to what they borrow…two mutt pups from the same litter could look completely different.

I very much doubt Shepherd/Corgi – there is nothing very corgi-ish in his features. Potentially Shepherd/Akita, but most likely either Shepherd/Lab or Shepherd/Golden. If you adopt him, you can have a DNA test done on your dog – you’ll have to share the results! My suspicion is it’s at least 3-4 different breeds in there, though.

Edit:Saw he’s already been adopted! Yay!
