So many times people post pictures and ask what folks on the forum think about their dogs. Often, the most convincing in appearance turn out disappointingly to not have any Basenji blood. When you think about it, there are not likely all that many crossbreds out there. Most people with an intact Basenji bitch are not looking to cover her with anything but a purebred male, and in North America generally females are spayed because most breeders require it for pet puppies. Bitches that are showing are even less likely to be bred to something outside the breed.
New Puppy, Lucy, Basenji?
We adopted this puppy last week and I'm not really sure what she is! We've been told shepherd, lab, akitu, basenji, etc.
I just wanted to know what you all thought.
Hey everybody I have been wanting a German Shepherd for a long time and I finally got to adopt what we think is a sheperd mix. Anybody want to verify that? How much shepherd do you think is in her?
It's very hard to get pictures of her - she's a fast puppy! She's three months old.
She loves to chew on my socks.
Here's a video of Lucy:

I'm positive that she is cute! The ears look like they could be Basenji to me.
^ Thank you!

she is a cutie, but I think Shepard x Akita could be a good idea…

She is absolutely adorable. Love her wrinkled forehead! I'm going with German Shepherd. Does she bark?

She's beautiful! That first pic, especially the ears, looks just like a German Shepherd puppy to me. I think she's a shepherd mix. I don't see any Basenji there though.
I would think Sheherd and Akita, Or Shepherd and Lab. What a sweet little face.

Thanks everybody! Yes, she does bark, but not frequently.

What a cutie!! Very much a German Shep., IMO. Those huge, stand up on their own ears leave something to consider…........
Thank you for adopting a puppy in need of a forever home!!

She is a cutie pie….looks mostly shep to me. Would you like to do one of those DNA test to be sure?
Not really (aren't they a bit expensive?), I'll love her the same either way.
I know she's not a Basenji, but I thought you all might want to see a few more pictures of Lucy:
She's gained about 3 pounds since we got her!
The flash makes her seem alot whiter than she actually is.
Something's caught her attention…
Don't get too close to the camera!

Here is a pic of a dark and light colored shepherd pup. I don't know an awful lot about akitas but I could see GS-Akita mix. I also see a b shape to the face and ears. A lot more slender than the GS pupies usually are.
But overall ADORABLE!
