Hello, do you know what my dog is?

Hi! I got Duke 4 weeks ago. We were told he is from a Beagle mom and a chocolate lab "champion breed" dad. He seems so small though, that we question it. I know we can purchase a Doggie DNA kit but would like to know what you guys think. Here is Duke at 8 weeks.
This one is him at 10 weeks: http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/or...c8d70137fc.jpg

Thanks!!

Beagles and labs have different ears and different heads than him. I'd guess he has some Jack Russell Terrier.

Whoever sold him to you sounds like they weren't being honest in any case.

He doesn't look much like either a beagle or a chocolate lab to me. The pic of him at 10 weeks old looks a bit like a rat terrier.

I agree with chi or rat. No lab. No beagle.

Thanks for all of your responses. It's just crazy that this couple who sold him to us would lie and say the puppy came from the husband's mom's beagle. The couple seemed very normal, not sketchy. They had details about the other puppies and the number of puppies in the litter. It just makes me so curious.

This pup looks like a JRT Mix, how many pounds is he? https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.n...32595954_n.jpg This is my boy river who is a JRT and Beagle mix, and they have the same kind of ears but your's has a bit longer body and shorter legs. I think that Chi and JRT would be a good guess.

Did you meet the mother? They may think she's a beagle and she may not be, or she may only be part beagle. The average person isn't that great at identifying dog breeds to be honest. They may have simply guessed that she was bred by a lab because there's an unneutered lab in the area that they know of. Who knows!
