Newly rescued pup--need breed guesses!

asdf_greenthumbNovember 25, 2012

Adopted this lil' cutie from a kill-shelter 3 weeks ago. I was told by one of the shelter volunteers that they believed she was a maltese-yorkie. But she doesn't look like any morkie I have ever seen ; )

She has a wire coat, short muzzle and ears that normally stand up (not floppy).

Gimme your guesses! Thanks!!!

She is adorable! She looks a bit like a Norwich Terrier.

It is a mix of a Cutie and a Patootie.

A Cutiepatootie.

What beautiful little button eyes. I can't imagine anyone putting her down. Just don't see how anyone at the shelter could do that. Bless you for saving her life.

Awww, she is so cute!! I agree with Sylvia and Annz, she looks sort of like a Mini Schnauzer.

Nobody at a shelter ever wants to euthanize animals.

My dog is getting old so in my spare time I check all the local shelter websites, looking for my next dog. It amazes me the breed mix info that gets posted. For your photo they might say something like Glen of Imaal Terrier - which it very much looks like. But come on, how many unwanted Glen of Imaal Terriers are there in the US?

Anytime I see a wire coat I think terrier or schnauzer.
