What do you think now about Zeus. Can you guess the mix? Is he Doberman / Rott mix or something else.
He is now almost 40 kg (88-90pound). He run very fast. The most funny thing about him is his tail. The and of it is almost forming a circle. I wish sometimes they docked his tail. I like the dogs with tail but Zeus tail I really funny.
Shell I spay him now or I need to wait some more time?

I am on my phone, so I cant see him all that well, but his markings look a little strange for a doberman or rottie. He is still a handsome boy and he looks awesome. If you can keep him from reproducing, I think I would put neutering off till he is two or later, IF he is part rotttweiler, as they seem to have a problem developing osteosarcoma when neutered early. You might want to research it on the internet.

Thanks LindaH for your input.It is good for me to know he is rotti/dobi not something completely unknown.He is really very smart.
My kids love him and he have been so gentle to them.He plays well with them and I'm really happy go have him.
There is only one thing which is making me crazy.He cries a lot.It is driving as crazy.It is not always but atleast 2-3 times a week at night.He is now a big dog not a little puppy but still he does it.
I have seen here that people say that dobermanas do it.Is that typical for them and what can I do to stop it.He is crated at night and when we are not home.Rest of the time he us with us.

Many undocked (purebred) dobers often have curled tails. Not in a pug sence but a hound sence. I think he looks both like a dober and a rott as well.

Thanks for the input Darkevs but it is almost impossible to be Akbsh. Here in UAE this dogbreed is not existing. Even In my native country Bulgaria which is neighbor with Turkey very few people will know this Breed.
The tail is not like in a pug. See the pic attached.
Here he is less then one year.

I just mesure Zeus and he is 68-68.5 cm up to the highest point if the shoulder.
As I see he by the hight he can be a dobbie but he can be a rottie too.He is 40 kg which is a bit lighter for a rott and ok for a dobie.
I'm confiused.I think he have more from a dobbie but is he mix or just not very well breed?
Somehow I think if Zeus is a mix he is a mix if this 2 breeds.

I think he is a mix of a dobie and a rottie. Maybe a little something else in there but not enough to matter IF there is even anything else. I would be happy saying he is a dobie/rottie cross.

Just caught your post about the whining. If it is only in the crate, I would just ignore it. Make sure he has had water and been outside before you crate him. Parker is good in the crate.:) If he whines he needs something, usually water or to go pee.

Ha! I have seen that tail somewhere, too, and it has been driving me nuts...it finally hit me, Afgan Hound!!! I know your boy doesn't have afgan hound but that is where I have seen a tail like his. Check out the tail on the afgan in the 5th photo.:)

Honestly, on his tail, it could have come from the doberman, easy, as their tails do curl and his is just a little more extreme.

LundaH you spotted the tail :).I always think of afghan too when I see his tail.It is funny.I think if he has afghan it is a bizarre.I can tall you that it is almost impossible hut why not.
The whining is always at night(early morning).He has everything there,we take him out and he don't need to do anything.If we let him stay out not in the crate he will sleep in the sofa and no crying....We are not with him but he is happy out of the crate and keep sleeping.I think somehow we made him realize that if he do it long enough we will loos control and he will spend the early morning in our sofa.
The problem is with the neighbors.The are such a pain.From the day we have him they start complaining because he keep crying at night.We had no choice but try to keep him as silent as possible.So he learn from small that if he whines we will let him out.
Now we do not know what to do.The good thing is that it is not every night but is quiet annoying.
