    I really like the shot that you have taken and this brings me to the question.
    What sort of breed is he. To me he looks like a German Shepard but he doesn't look big enough to be one.
    But I am not saying he isn't it just my observation.
    If he is a mix I would say a Shepard crossed with and Akita.
    But please tell me I am wrong as I am not a fan of Akita's.

    I agree with Gramps Very nice captures and training dogs is a challenge for sure, but can be a lot of fun also I have found over the years..

    Thanks for sharing and really nice job Mike!

    A tip for next time: Getting low to the ground on the dogs level, can really help make some extra special captures as well.

    It could be a member of the Spitz family, possibly a Norwegian Buhund.

    Thanks for letting us know about the breed. I was thinking about the Spitz line but really wasn't sure.
    And I am with you Dave I use to be able to rattle mast breeds of,
    But many older and near forgotten breeds are making a come back by dedicated people.

    Which brings me to the Texas Cattle Dogs. To which I think they have stuffed up.
    The Heeler as it is better known here are a better looking dog in my eyes over the Texas ones.
    They have got a broader term for them and well I just don't like it.
    As the saying goes if it ain't broke don't fix it.

    Over here the British Bulldog was played around with here by a television personality.
    He made the nose longer to help with its breathing and I think he has got it right.
    But only my vies one this.

    Sorry for getting off track on this and I can say I have not heard of this breed and now I will have to do some research on them.
    And I still like your shots.
