Can you help ID my Golden Mix?

I just got him about a month ago from the local shelter. He is 4 months old and very social. I know he is golden because that's what his momma was, however, I can't figure out what else he is mixed with. He does have a few black spots on his tongue and seems to be a bit smaller than a pure golden for his age.

Black spots on tongue could be chow chow, but I don't see chow chow in him, he would have more of a blocky head and a shorter muzzle. Going by looks I'd say golden X collie type. There is no real way to tell by looks alone what could be in there breed wise. The sire could have had a number of mixes in him.

He's very cute tho!!!

I'm not sure. He looks very Golden to me.. Many GRs have spots on their tongues--they're called treat spots.

He may just be pure Golden. Sure is pure cute!

Thank you! He's def my special little guy and a huge cuddler. I have heard someone suggest doing a DNA test, but I have no idea how to go about doing that. Maybe time will tell what he is mixed with.. if anything.

I'd agree-Golden x Collie or maybe even Golden x Poodle, there's just something about that one shot that reminds me of a Poodle. Very cute

DNA - google Wisdom Panel - they're having a sale that expires tomorrow (I think). The results may not be 100% accurate, but it's fun

Maybe Golden/Sheltie ?



Love is patient, love is kind.
Love never gives up or loses faith.
Love is always hopeful and endures through every trial.

There are DNA tests you can have done. Several on here have done them for fun. If you search for DNA you should find the threads. I've heard the one done with a blood draw is the most accurate. What's his name?
