    What would you say that Tanks lineage is. The people we got him from swear that he's 100% APT but we've never seen another like him. He's like our child and we'd like to find another dog with the same characteristics, short of cloning him (which we've discussed). He's 100 lb's, extremely powerful and jumps like a Jack Russel after a frisbee. TIA for your opinion.... :)

    looks like a boxer to me

    and if he is 100 lbs. i would say for almost 100% he has been mixed with something else somewhere along the line.

    We thought about that (because of his face) but he's larger than a Pit Bull or a Boxer, much larger. We've seen pics of his father, a very thick, Gotti bloodline like, Pit Bull but he doesn't have the facial features like Tank. His mother is supposed to be a APB too but we haven't seen any pics of her yet. Thank you very much for your estimation and please keep them comming.... :)

    but quite honestly we wish we hadn't. We really would love some of his offspring. He's the most amazing dog we've ever had.

    most people will look at a dogs face to see whats in him but look at the bone and substance to the dog....hard just from a photograph but looking at the narrow shoulders,shape of the chest etc id put money on there being at least 50 % boxer in the make up.

    Before I looked at any of the other posts I immediately thought part boxer, he looks exactly like a friends Bulloxer or Amstaff/Boxer mix. Cute dog though! If thats what he is it will be pretty easy to find a similar looking dog. Oh, and our boxer is a great Frisbee dog, another reason we thought Boxer mix.

    He looks like a giant arse Boxer! Maybe AmStaff/Boxer and a little bit of something bigger.... like Some sort of Mastiff or American Bulldog.

    His body looks like a big boxer to me also. His face has some boxer characteristics.

    Who cares what he is though? He is beautiful.

    He looks more like a Boxer/Mastiff mix to me.

    As for wanting some offspring because of how great he is, with mixed breed dogs (and dogs of known heritage), it doesn't work that way. It could very well be that his lovely temperament is a genetic fluke. And then, without knowing what he is, what would you breed him to? Something that would create a litter of mixed-breed dogs and if you understand genetics, you'd know that your chances of getting a litter full of physically and temperamentally unsound dogs is equal to or even greater than getting a litter full of "perfect" dogs. And regardless, NONE will ever be like the dog you have.

    Sure is a handsome guy whatever he is. I gotta soft spot for those big lugs as I've got one myself! lol

    I think Miakoda has great advice, its not a good idea to breed a dog of unknown lineage. I also think your best bet to get a dog like him is to get a Bulloxer or Bull boxer the Bulloxer is a mix of AMstaff and boxer and the Bull Boxer is a mix of American Bulldog and Boxer, if my info is correct. I have met several of these dogs as they are very popular in my area, for the most part they all had great temporaments and as i am not a huge fan of the new designer breeds these 2 mixes are one exception I make. He is a great looking dog though.
