    is he 4.5-MO in that photo? - he looks a bit younger.
    It's hard to say at any age under about 6-mo what a mixed-breed pup with no definitive traits might be - they develop quite a lot as puberty hits full-steam at 6 to 7-mos, for one thing, they shed their baby-coat & U can see the texture & type of the adult coat coming in. :)

    He certainly seems to have the typical CKCS markings of red n' white, but there's nothing that would shout "Bichon" at me, just yet. // I'm certainly not doubting he could be CKCS x Bichon, not at all! - just nothing pops out, when i look at his photo.

    Suggestion - when he gets a bit older, about 5.5 to 7-mos, take another photo of him if U would? - And this time, put him STANDING on an elevated surface, such as a hassock / footstool, a table indoors or out, a park bench, _____.
    U might need a helper to hold his leash, so he doesn't attempt to hop down while U're truying to get him in focus, but they can be out of frame - no need to worry them about their holey trainers or windblown hair, it's just the dog. :)
    Hold the camera LEVEL with his mid-chest, & photograph him from the side, with everything from nose to tail-tip in the frame.

    Sitting in a chair, with him standing on a table, might give U an easy angle, & then U can prop yer elbows on yer thighs or hold them to yer ribs, to keep the camera steady. :thumbsup:

    this is the classic pose for showing body & skull proportions, tail-set, ear-set, tail carriage, etc -

    [BTW, that Shiba Inu is distinctly pudgy - i wish show-judges would stop rewarding fat dogs with ribbons. :( ]

    Not really. :oops: His head is much-closer to the lens than the rest of his body, so it looks enormous & out of proportion, & we're seeing him from above - he's a spine, a neck & big head, a partially-seen tail, & maybe 2 paws.
    We can't see the length of his legs re the size of his body, the ratio of foreskull to backskull, whether he has a stop between nose & topskull, his tail-set, & all the other details that might give clues to parentage.

    How old is he in photo #1?
    He'll show a lot more possible-identifiers when he's 6 to 7-MO than between 3 to 5-MO.
