Dog of the Day: “Puppy” the 10-year-old Husky/Lab/Samoyed/Aussie/Whaaaatever!
I don’t care what breed Puppy is: he’s an adorable, huggable, healthy dog. That’s what matters, right?
(Still flat on my back in bed. Back’s better, but still not happy.)
I find dog ears endlessly fascinating, and feel a little sorry for floppy-eared breeds. They're missing out on such an amazing instrument of self-expression.
Not sure what that expression is on him. On me it's "I just woke up, lemmee alone."
Uh oh, here comes another one.
The patented Dogs of SF NOSEBOMB! (Yes, I'm amused by every single one of these. Yes, that makes me easily amused. Any more questions?)
Another inscrutable expression.

Thanks for posting the photos. Puppy says ‘hi’.
Aww! Give puppy a big hug for me. He’s awesome!
That looks like a Pure bred German Sheppard they have white and black ones,
Could well be. I don’t know, though… his face didn’t quite look like one to me. Still, you never know!
30 years ago, when I was growing up in California, we had a female Samoyed (Shilo) and a male white lab (Chevy), who had many many litters of puppies, which we always found good homes for in cities around the Bay Area & all the way up into the Sierra foothills. More that a few Christmases found us kids standing in front of one shopping center or another with a box full of pups to find loving homes for! Shiloh always had at least a dozen pups each time. I ran across this image, and would swear this is the offspring of one of our pups!
I live in Ohio now, but were I to be back in California I would search until I found one. This dog has a “smile” that is the spitting image of our “Heavy Chevy” and it warms my heart to think they still have offspring running around California!
I would not be the slightest bit surprised.
Autumn’s family had a samoyed/golden retriever mix that looked a fair bit like this dog. She was pretty awesome, although she got rather crotchety towards the end of her (seventeen-year!) life.
I live near Montreal , Quebec Canada. I have the same dog!! His name is “Bear”. We got him as an 8week old puppy from a rescue org.we called him ” Bear” because he looked like a little polar bear cub…”Poley Bear”… I’ve never known exactly what he is but he is the most amazing dog.
Aww! Well, you could try one of those DNA kits (though they’re a little unreliable) or you could just make up a name in French and tell all the English-speakers that he’s a purebred of that breed and smile mysteriously. Either way, sounds like you have a great dog. 🙂
this is the kind of a dog I had since I lived on the charlottes but I love him and I don’t know how he died from but he is a good dog
The mixed-breed dogs can be pretty great. Ones like this especially.
This looks like Odin, my beloved doggie who, as a stray, found me in the late 1960s. He lived until age 15-1/2. The best dog ever!
Aww! That’s awesome.
Have you had any more canine friends since then?
This One so much like Our dog! We got him as a rescue a year ago so I had to open up this link to read more and make sure it wasn’t the same dog. We think ours is a lab husky mix but who knows what he is besides being a really awesome dog. Gentle and calm, patient and quiet. We call him the Zen master in our house. : ). Why he was given away I will never understand!
That’s so awesome.
He could also be a white shepherd. I’ve known a couple now, and they were both very calm, happy dogs.
such a beautiful dog. my dog died 2 weeks ago and she looks exactly like her
can you tell me her breed please. i am trying to find a dog who looks like her. thank you
You might try looking at ‘white shepherds’ and white shepherd mixes, or Labrador retrievers mixed with husky or malamute. Good luck!
thank you adam. if you know someone who has a similar dog to mine, please let me know. if you need pictures, i can send you via fb.
I’m so sorry. It’s so tough losing a good friend.
Our pup looked just like that. His DNA test said that he was lab samoyed shar pei. We are looking for a pup just like him. Please let me know if anyone knows where we can find one. Thank you!
I wish you luck! The only thing I ever know how to do is refer people to Petfinder.
OMG! my dog looks just like him. She was a rescue dog found in Stockton,Ca. and was rescued to a Walnut Creek shelter. I wonder if they are related…hmm.. we don’t know too exactly what she is mixed with. But we think she is a white German Shepard mix w/ husky..but she look’s exactly like your dog with the red nose and black spots and the same ears that fold back. but our dog is 3and a half yrs old. and I see this pic was back in 2012. So would be a coincidence if they are related..could be grandpa..idk..
Not impossible! Any pictures of your pup online? If so, drop a couple of links in a comment here so we can see!
