ok a little more insight...Old Jax might not be corgi at all?! took him to the dog park today and was able to get a updated wright on him...30 lbs at 7 months lots of loose skin..front paws turn out a bit.  heard him bark only 3 times but its was pretty loud and more of a BBAAARRROOOO bark.  he liked to wrestle and chase and get chased by the other dogs ranging from great dane to yorkie...maybe he has bassett hound in him?? didnt see any herding insticts.  I cant figure out that little tail thought. either way he is awesome, so glad I was able to give him a loving home!!

Who cares!!He's adorable!!As the "parent" of both boxers and corgis over My lifetimeI love both anyway!!The dark brindle can be in boxers too.The "reverse" brindle or almost black,has been a color trying to get approved by the AKC.Our neighbor adopted an adorable little guy 2 months ago.Black and tan with cute erect ears with a blue eye.The shelter guessed aussieand some kind of spitz.Well.the pup is getting huge.so they did the dna test.Ready??How's Chow,Malamute and small dose of Lab??lol They still love the boy and He's eatting like a small horse!!:)

DNA testing is great. I would have no idea what Tank would be without it and he certainly doesn't look like a Newfoundland even though that's his biggest amount in his gene pool. But most of us don't really care. It's rather fun figuring out the bark, the legs, the color...Congratulations on your beautiful new addition and "thank you" for giving him a home:)

Just wanted to add that having said he looks like a pit to me, if you cross a flatter-faced dog like a Frenchie with a long-faced dog like a Corgi, Beagle, etc, you often get that squared-off mid-range snout.  At least that's what I've seen in the so-called "designer dog" crosses (where parentage is presumably known).

If money isn't too tight, I'd do the DNA test.  Research which companies are best.  I'd say a pit-mix too, with that coloring and headshape.  Several breeds carry the mutation for bobtails, and the short-legged mutation can pop up just about anywhere.  That said, someone in England crossed corgis in with boxers to introduce the bobtail gene and hand them back to looking like pure boxers in just a few generations.  So anything can be in there.

 

He is very cute and looks like he has a very happy personality!  Good luck with him!

I have no clue, though his face looks a bit like a Staffy to me.

Im not sure about Jack rusell. I have to take better pics but ever time I squat down he bee lines to me! he is to long in the body for a jackI agree thats iys much easier to adopt out antthing other then a pit.I said the exact same thing as you did about picking any bully breed to substitute saying pitbull.  I dont seee jack russell though he is a little to long in the body for that.

I'd agree more likely pit. There are so many pit body types and there are a lot that are super short and stocky. They probably said boxer because of the color and tail. And in my experience brindle boxers tend to be red not the tan/yellow color like most pits are. AND its much easier to place a boxer than a pit! His body reminds me more of a jack russel than a corgi. DNA test him! :-)
