Hello, this my seven-month-old puppy named Roman. When I adopted him a few months ago I was told he's a cross between a collie and lhasa apso. Not knowing a lot about breeds before this, I didn't question it. However, I have since began to doubt this. I know someone who has an English cocker spaniel and his dog is more or less identical to Roman. From these pictures, can anyone help me identify what breed he is? He has the white patch on his chest like the English cockers I have seen in Google images. Any help is greatly appreciated. Here's two very recent pics of him.
Note: apologies for the images being wrong way round, I don't know how to change this :(

looks like a retriever mix to me but that of course also depends on the size.

How much does he weigh? English cockers aren't very common, at least here. He could have some in him, but I don't see it. That white spot on the chest is very common in black dogs. My Great Dane is black and she has a white spot on her chest too.

I highly doubt this dog has any trace of Lhasa Apso in him, and only POSSIBLY Collie. Where did you get him? I also don't think he looks very much like a spaniel. His ears and face don't look like a Spaniel's at all. Many dogs can be black and have white spots on their chest. Colors can often been in many different breeds. I think he might be part Border Collie, Lab, Golden Retriever, or Newfoundland if he gets really big.

I actually could believe lhasa apso, primarily because he appears to have dwarfism based on his turned out front legs. Maybe lhasa and border collie? I've seen other known border collie mixes with similar faces/coat, and I would believe that over "regular" collie, as most collie mixes I've seen still have some features of the distinct collie eyes/nose. His coat and facial expression are not like that of any of the cocker spaniel breeds, and the white spot on chest is a common marking among all breeds. He's very handsome, nice coat and sweet expression :)
