We got CiCi about 18 months ago from a shelter.


She was 2 months old when we got her. We were told by the guy who dropped her off there that she was a shepherd/lab mix. Originally the vet thought lab mix because of the floppy ears, but not shepherd, due to the brindle coloring.

Once she got older and her face started looking more like an adult dog and not a puppy, her face started looking more dominantly like that of a German Shepherd. Now we were told she's definitely part German Shepherd, but not sure of what else she is mixed with.

There's a few breeds that can have brindle coloring, but I doubt she's a pit because she doesn't have that pit snout that I see a lot of pit mixes as having, but I could be wrong. She does have a high curve by her hind legs that makes me think greyhound but not sure.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what you think she could be mixed with? I won't know for sure unless I get a blood test done of course, and it really doesn't matter because we love her no matter what breed she is.

Dutch Shepherd
by: Jan L

Google search Dutch Shepherd. Your CiCi appears to be a pure bred! She's just beautiful!

We recently lost our Dutch/German Shepherd mix. Best dog ever.

Hopefully, through the North American Dutch Shepherd Rescue, we will be adopting another sweet boy next weekend!

First thought
by: Carmen

My first thought, at first look of her snout was Great Dane. Then I read the comments and yes, can see maybe some greyhound... her DNA test run would tell you which ;)

Shepard/ lab
by: Jenny

I had my dog's DNA tested and it came back German Shepard and lab.

He looked a lot like CiCi with the brindle coloring.

Multiple Mix
by: Anonymous

I'm guessing your dog is a mix of over 4 breeds - one being great Dane

Plott Hound

Cici looks more like a Plott Hound than a Shepherd.

Looks like my CC!
by: Gabriela

So I was googling brindle german sherpard mixes to see if there were any other pups out there that looked like my almost two year GSD mix.

This beautiful picture of your baby came up and she is IDENTICAL to my girl! Same body shape, size and coloring. And to top it off, my pooch's name is CC as well :)

Just thought I would share with you, small world!!

Lurcher
by: Mary

A lurcher is a greyhound mix. Lurchers are seen alot in Texas and in the midwest to chase coyotes.

Cici does have a very greyhoundish curl. One of my greys could curl himself into my miniature poodle's bed. It was a riot to see this long thin dog curl himself into that bed. He would also cockroach (laying on his back with all 4 legs up in the air) curl and you could see his teeth like he was smiling. He was a gentle giant.

You have a fabulous combo with the grey's sensitive nature with a shepherd's intelligence.

Comment about CiCi's curve
by: Anonymous

It was kind of funny because a few months back I brought CiCi over to my dad's house for a playdate with his dog, which she's a beautiful purebred Springer Spaniel, and they got along really well.

Well my dad was like, "Are you sure you're feeding her big enough portions?" because of the curve. I said yes. Then he asked if she could possibly have worms, and I said no she's been treated. The curve just threw him off and I think he thought I wasn't feeding her enough, but then by the end of their playdate he said I must be because she pooped like 5 times all over his yard.

Funny how parents can act like grandparents even when it comes to your pets, haha. I never even heard of a lurcher before though but when I looked it up she does kind of have that build! So maybe she could be that.

I'm lucky to have her whatever she is. :)

Possible Parentage
by: Mary

I have a 7-month old sheperd and 2 greyhounds. One is a brindle and the other is brindle/white. Cici could be part grey, or maybe boxer or great dane.

She's a doll. We also got our Sammy from a rescue group that got her from a humane society.

Hi Krisha,

It's really hard to tell what mix your gsd is but judging by the shape of her body in one of the pics, I would suggest she could be crossed with a brindle coloured Greyhound or lurcher??
