Back on September 14th of this year, my son and I made a road trip from SW Iowa to South of Auburn, Kansas.  Purpose was to pick up a new dog.  Made the trip safe and sound and Duke did a good job of riding for his first trip.  Here he is that same day sitting in a chair with the 4 yo granddaughter,  He weighs in at 15 lbs at 10 weeks old.

 

Harper & Duke.jpg       Yesterday we got him back from the vet after his second round of shots and being neutered. Will be 4 month this Sunday and now weighs 46.5 lbs.  Sitting in the same chair as the first pic.  More than a little excited to be back home again.  I think he may be a big dog when he is done growing.Duke-3.JPG

I'd say he will be rather large. What brand is he?

Looks like a great pereneese mix? BIG dogs!! Only issue is they don't last as long as most. A friend of mine raised them for many years and would average only 7-10 years . But on the bright side, we had one that was a mix and he was over 16 when he passed, and he looked exactly like yours, hee hee, and tipped the scales at 135 when fully grown.;-)

He is 1/2 Pyrenees (his mother), and 1/4 Anatolian Shepherd  & 1/4 Akbash.  All native of Turkey.  They are guard dogs, not herd dogs.  Males of both breeds  are up to 140 lbs. as working dogs.  Hi dark colors are from the Akbash, especially around his face.  He is already starting to do his job.  Neighbor turned cattle in his field next to our pasture.  this morning when the cattle went down to the creek to drink they were within about 100 yds of the barn.  He was on top of a pallet stack barking at them. As soon as the passed further away he laid down and watched.  He knows exactly what he is supposed to do.

We had a Pyrenees before so used the bog food supply.  Between the dog, a couple ducks and the Bluejays , they all get their share.
