My husband and I adopted a shelter dog last week, who we absolutely adore. When we were looking at her I asked one of the workers if they knew what kind of dog she was and they said no....just a mutt. My curiosity is getting the best of me though, and I would like to see if anyone might have some insight into what kind of breeds she might be. Pictures are here 3 photos included and she is the bigger dog in photo 1. She's about 2 years old so I'm assuming she's fully grown, also slightly under weight. As for her height, her head is about hip height (I'm 5'5"). So please someone satisfy my curiosity about our newest baby and tell me what kind of pup could she be?

What are the main differences between a Birman and a Ragdoll cat? We are looking for a nice family cat and we have a seven year old. We are looking for a breed that has blue eyes, and is warm and affectioniate like a dog. I have heard that Ragdoll's tend to get really big, that is one thing I'm not sure we want. Any experiences you guys have would be appreciated.

Help me choose a new dog. I've been looking at different breeds and have come up empty. Here's my list of things to consider. Please ask if there is more that you think is relevant. We have kids from infant to 7. We have 1 middle-aged cat. We have a suitable yard that I don't want destroyed. I love the size and look of border collies. I love the look of irish setters. I love the look of bassets and beagles. Central Iowa, but dog would sleep indoors. Exercise is a daily walk. Simply trained; no complex tricks, just sit, stay, heel, fetch.

Doggy folk, your best guess about this breed/mix, please? Photos: 1, 2, 3. She is two years old, weighs around 27 pounds, and is about 17 inches tall. I don't know much more than that.

We adopted a rabbit, and are really taken with him. We're not sure of his specific breed, or a close guess as to his heritage, besides that based on the ears that he's a lop of some sort. And it's possible or most likely that he's a mutt, but we're just curious, what breed(s) of rabbit is he? [more inside]
