Am I a Dobie mix?

Darcy (left) is our 11 month old puppy. We have had all sorts of guesses as to what she may be. Several people think she's a Doberman/Weimaraner mix. What do you think??

Nope, personally I don't see any dobe or weim in that girl. I do see German Shepherd and hound though. She is a very beautiful girl. <3

I'd be more likely to guess shepherd over Dobe because of the full mask and the thicker-looking coat... but then again, my Guinness was definitely half-doberman and he had a full mask as an adult too so it's certainly possible.

Thanks! We just can't figure out exactly what she is. We picked her up from a rescue and they weren't completely sure either. Doesn't really matter, still love her no matter what

You might get better guesses if you have a side photo of her standing. Helps with the bone structure.

As is, though, looks like Shepherd to me too!

Darcy has a very pretty smile

I don't know.... she kinda resembles my Gin, who was a Dobe mix. Whatever the heck she is, she's cute.

She's a cutie-pie! It's possible she's part Dobe... sometimes the mixes, especially if there's German Shepherd and/or hound in there (which it looks like there is) can result in the full mask that is not the Dobe marking... her expressions have a Doberman attitude. Guess you'll have to make up your own story about her!
(PS - I don't see an ounce of Weim, though... just my opinion.)

That's a beautiful dog!

I definitely see the resemblance. Darcy's body is pretty much the same shape and those ears!

I don't really see Weim either. I'm thinking they said that because of her big ears. If anything I think Darcy may be part Blue Doberman. I was looking at some pictures and I see a huge resemblance in a lot of those dogs

Thanks. Her mother was a Dobe, and we think her sire was possibly a mix of Rhodesian Ridgeback (judging by her color) and Labrador Retriever (judging by her thick, waterproof coat). Whatever the heck she was, she was a good dog, and got me hooked on Dobermans.

I probably have 1000 pictures of her and not a single side view standing up one!

I posted a few more on my flickr account (my work computer is not letting me attach into the actual post here :/ ):

There may be a smidgen of dobe in there based on the head shape and size and set of the ears. No GSD; no hair. Just an all-american dog.
