I had seen brindled greyhounds, but hadn't realized they could have prick/upright ears. Photos available if you search prick eared greyhound.

Tell us about yourself: I adopted a Dutch Shepherd mix (without knowing what she was) from the SPCA here in Victoria BC and am now trying to learn everything I can about this breed. My husband and I work from home most of the time so I thought it was time to get a puppy! We have his 2 boys here half the time and we wanted a nice family dog.

Sugar looks like a miniature Dutch Shepherd with floppy ears, and has every ounce of DS traits in her little body!

I hope to learn from other DS owners and share doggy experiences.

Tell us about yourself: I have a question about my daughter's mixed-breed dog, a brindle 60lbs or so that was adopted as a stray. He is supposedly and plott hound boxer mix but has a very "gay" tail. I hope to post a picture or two and see if he might have some characteristics of a Dutch Shepherd. He does howl like a hound though.

Hello. My daughter adopted a stray from our Humane Society several years ago and we have wondered what he might be. They listed him as a Plott Hound - Boxer mix, but I have just discovered Dutch Shepherds! He does not have the muzzle of the shepherd but does have some other characteristics, and has a really high curled "gay tail" most all of the time. He does have a low bark and a howl like he might be part hound. I met a Great Dane one day that looked like his huge father. Any suggestions appreciated. Dutch Shepherd are beautiful - I am glad I discovered this page!

I am trying to attach pictures but first I got file too big so I reduced the file size and now it says http error. Help please? Thank you.

I liked that video. Those DS puppies were the best.
