Default What are your thoughts on purebred or not?

Some of you may have seen my post in the intro forum but if not here is our new family member. We adopted Zeus from a humane society last week. We took him in just for a general check up today.

I didn't notice anything that pointed to him not being purebred except for maybe his height. The vet thinks he is mixed with Great Dane. What are your thoughts? If there is a better pose I can take a picture of to help please let me know.

It doesn't effect me either way as I am totally in love with my big baby, just looking for opinions. By the way they think he is around 9 months old and he weighed in at 73 lbs.!

by the look of Zeus he looks purebred to me. He might be on the bigger scale of the boxer standard but he is handsome and beautiful! He looks to be at the 'tall and lanky' stage of adolescence. Congrats on doing rescue

That is what I was thinking too. It just made me wonder, so I thought I would get some opinions.

He looks pure bred to me too. His face is very similar to Moxie. I've heard of some boxers reaching 90 lbs. So he might just be a big one.

Looks all boxer to me too. I don't see anything else in there. He's just a big beautiful boy. Our Liam is 9mo and just broke the scales at a whopping 41lbs! Lol
