That Settles That

We can see that Harley is part Great Dane, but we've been curious about what other breed(s) he may be.  We thought maybe we could see a little Boxer in his face (and both Danes and Boxers come in the brindle color).  But he's also a very thin dog (yes, we're increasing his dog food to see if he will gain some weight, but I do think that even if he does gain a few pounds he will still be a pretty "fit" looking dog).  So we didn't know if he possibly had another thinner breed in him.  It's also hard to tell if he will get much bigger -- the shelter estimated his age at 13 months, but he has such long, skinny legs, and such big paws, that sometimes people ask if he's still a puppy, and he will still grow into his paws.  But maybe that's just how he's built.


Anyway, the other day I happened to look on Google for pictures of Great Dane Boxer mixes, and almost every picture of a Dane Boxer mix that was dark colored looked quit a bit like Harley.  Many of them even look like they have the similar tall, thin build.  So, I'd say that settles it, it looks like Harley is a Great Dane-Boxer.
