Identify my dog

Can you help me decide what my dog is. Take a guess and then have a look at my profile page and read my story. This might help you make up your mind but as he was given to me as a cross bread I really could do with help on what he is.

13-11-2009, 06:38 AM first glance, he does look very like a Canaan dog, but he seems his head and ears don't seem quite right. I can see the Canaan dog has sharp points to the tips of the ears and Ben's ears are more rounded like a shepherd. He is gorgeous whatever he is.

He looks a crossbreed, GSD perhaps, maybe Lab to get the colour, other things will make shape. He is nothing like a Caanan dog, which are still rare and all accounted for in the UK. He is very very handsome!!!

Hi there.

I thought it might be easier for people to see your story in this thread rather than having to go look at your profile, so I've copied and pasted it below.

Have to say, i have no idea what he is (some larger photos would be good) but he's certainly a very handsome lad

"Ok, my dog Ben was a throw back from a dogs home. They almost pushed him onto us, they didnt even do a home check, they just gave hime to us. He was said to be a cross Lab but as he got bigger he began to show some odd traits. He was an exerlant gaurd and after being reminded who was in control he showed signs that he could learn a new trick in seconds. He can say hello and i love you and thank you and please. Really, I ask him to say these things before he can eat and he seems to mimic as best he can. He makes the right sounds with the correct number of sylables. He started to show signs of aggression by the time he was 6 months old and on the advise of our vet we had him done. We now thought we could see a German Shep starting to grow up. He had pointy ears beginning to stand up and was becoming very vocal. Any way, We went to dog training and worked on some of his protective issues and still have not achieved a well mannered dog while of lead. lol. Role on 3 years. Today my daughter was on a web site when she came across the Canaan Dog. We had not really looked at them before but when we did, we were quite shocked to see a dog that is the spitting image of Ben. We looked at the temprerment and so on and found that all that is said about them is the same as I say about Ben. We thought he might have Husky in him because he has no snell to his coat. His ears are rounded at the tip so perhaps he was a cross Lab/German Shep. After looking into the Canaan dog though today, I think I may just have one or at least a very close cross.

I will display some pics, tell me what you think. I can say that his personallity is spot on but judge for your selves on his physical being.

Let me know and feel free to ask me some questions, if you know the answers already you might be able to help me deside if my thoughts are correct.
