What breed is Jake?

If you are wondering what is the right dog for you, this is the place to be. In this introductory forum we talk about topics such as breed vs. mix, size, age, grooming, breeders, shelters, rescues as well as requirements for exercise, space and care. No question is too silly here. This particular forum is for getting and giving helpful, nice advice. It is definitely not a forum for criticizing someone else's opinion, knowledge or advice. This forum is all about tail wagging and learning.

From the face I'm guessing there is some German Wirehaired Pointer in there. As for other breeds I'm not sure.

German Wirehaired Pointer, probably, is his dominant breed. But that tail is suggesting malamute to me. thinking

Something about his face is also making me think of an Airedale terrier. confused

Ah, don't you just love mystery mutts? wink

I say German Wirehair/Brittany Spaniel.....

Got food? I- can be bought ya- know....

I think you got a good start with Brittany and Pointer. I think there is some Spitz type dog in there, which would account for the curled tail, wire hair and "mane". I think Samoyed, but only DNA test will tell for sure.

You might consider Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, also. What's his temperament like? If it's soft and sensitive, you'd definitely want to consider that. I would guess Griff, Collie and Lab, although the tail's a little crazy, so perhaps something more as well wink
