We have 2 different rescues, they both look a lot alike, but are definately not from the same litter, and have very different coats. I've had people tell me both look Akita. Personally I don't think so. Our male (Remington) I think may be Basenji/boxer mix. Our female (Safira) maybe Shepherd mix. Remington is about 8 months old and weighs about 46-50lbs. Safira is 2 and wieghs 42lbs. Any ideas on what breed they may be is appreciated. Here are some pics:
