Hello! What is the mix-breed of my dog?

Spirit is a playful dog. Sadly I don't know his mix-breed . Hes 4 years old and weighs 40 pounds.

Ach! I tried to get your images to show, but I'm not very fluent with photo-share sites...but at least the links are visible now!

Spirit is a beautiful dog!! I love his coloring. I'm seeing some yellow lab in there and maybe some shepherd? What a sweetie! Welcome to both of you!

I would guess some Lab too, from his coat and general appearance. Maybe some terrier to account for his small size and perky ears and maybe a collie type for his eyes and narrow muzzle? Whatever his mix it sure works out to a nice looking pup.

Sometimes behaviour is as good if not better guide to the breed mix. Does he retrieve, herd, dig? Lab, Collie, Terrier? Not that any of those are chipped in stone or confined to one breed.

Lab mix is the first thing that came to me. What a beauty
