Hello Everyone!

My husband and I adopted a lovely dog named Max this past weekend. The rescue organization said he's a Lab/Heeler/Terrier mix. He's 25 pounds. He is one year old and fully grown. After doing some research I'm thinking he may be part Patterdale Terrier. Here are pictures that the rescue organization took of him:

His personality is exactly that of a Patterdale. What does everyone think? I've never even heard of this breed before yesterday.
