    Default A hilarous meme... But seriously, what breed of dog is this?

    Hilarious!

    Is that adorable terrier a mutt, do you think? He is so fricken cute! The cutest ones always seem to be mixed breeds... but if someone recognizes his breed, I'd be very interested to hear!

    adorable puppy. I have no idea what "terrier" it would be but the wiry coat definitely seems terrier-ish.

    Nothing purebred, what with the white on its front. Adorable in any case.

    Cute! I agree it's a pup, but I think it's maybe an Airedale mix, not a full-blooded one. It doesn't quite have the face.

    Yorkie and Airedale? Look at the size of his paws! He's going to be BIG.

    Airedale beagle? His paws are huge and he has a beagly muzzle.

    there are a whole bunch of big wire-haired hunting dogs, maybe he's one of those? griffons, pudelpointers, munsterlanders, etc.
    or with those ears he could be a lurcher.

    Most likely he's just a cute mutt.

    As a kid, one aunt raised airedales and the puppies looked much like that one.
    The occasional one was born with a bit of white on the chest and feet, which was ok for hunting dogs, is what she raised them for.

    Here is a picture that is similar to those she raised:

    The OPs one looks like some schnauzer may be crossed in there.

    A classic Heinz 57. Adorable.

    Looks a little small for an Airedale, and they're not easy to come by these days. Could be Border Terrier. That's what I first thought of, though Irish (mixed with beagle), is also possible. Lakeland, Welsh, Wire-haired fox...lots of possibilities for that mix.

    Very, very cute pup whatever it is.

    I would say mis-marked Airedale pup or possibly mis-marked Welsh Terrier, but the size says Airedale, although human babies can throw off your perspective. If its a mix, definitely takes after the Airedale/Welsh ancestry. Very cute pup. Love the bottle-brush whiskers and eyebrows!

    Our Airedale was much darker on the legs/face at that age. A white patch on the chest is not uncommon for 'dales, but not one that size, and the white foot would have to come from somewhere else entirely. The face doesn't look like an Airedale puppy to me, at all.

    Maybe a terrier of some kind, mixed with a beagle? Just doesn't look at all like any Airedale pup I have seen.

    Terrier mix. Very probably not a purebred, not with that white on chest and toes. VERY cute puppy!
    Rack on!

    Not enough hair on it to be straight airedale either. It's something longer haired crossed with something shorter haired.
