Gambit the Odd Dog

Trying to explain what Gambit looks like is always interesting. A Staffy-Boxer-Rotty mix doesn't really look like any breed. Maybe a dog crossed with a hyena, with a head too small for the body.

And when his ears perk up, as does happen when Big Dog seems interested in something Gambit can't quite see, that little head looks even funnier.

But I have never had a pet--dog or cat--who wants to cuddle so much, or who looks so content to sleep on the couch.

We think it's a happy coincidence he has a little white beard, just like our last mutt dog who passed over two years ago (at age 17). It's a nice reminder. :)

Oh, what a darling! And brindle! Our first bulldog was brindle.

I just love the brindle coat, and it's so very soft.

'Staffy-Boxer-Rotty mix' seems to describe him very well: stub tail, smooth brindle coat, deep chest, wedge head. He's so cute on the couch! Yay for short-haired breeds that don't shed all over everything!

:) His shedding is totally under control.

Alas, we also have that huge yellow lab who throws hair everywhere, year-round. I warn new groomers that their arms will fall off long before that dog runs out of hair to shed!

I totally sympathize; we had Shelties.
