Hello! So a year ago I adopted the most sweetest baby ever! But I've been trying to figure out his breed. On his adoption paper it said terrier mix, I'm not sure about it. Any help?

The size of him and some characteristics, like the eyes and the general form of the head, would suggest a chihuahua mix.

The ears are highly suggestive of a terrier.

I can't place the markings although the eyebrows would suggest some kind of hound.

I would say that you are not looking at a "breed" but a mix of several (many) breeds. The only thing that you can really say from appearances is that he definitely has some terrier in him.

In that sense I would agree with the adoption papers.

If it were my dog I would describe it as a "kitchen sink". To be clear, that takes absolutely nothing away from how loving, affectionate and "perfect" he is as a dog!

If it really matters to you then you will need to get a DNA analysis. From the pictures, he looks like a playful and affectionate dog. I would personally leave it at that.

Yes I agree that he is definitely a Chihuahua terrier type of mix, a very lazy one too. 😁
