    Hello forum,

    We have moved in to a farm in Belgium, and the former owners have left us a dog. After he got used to us, he became a perfect companion, inspite of spending years locked in a cage and being fed potatoes.

    I would love to know what mixture of other dog has produced this marvel. His name is Sloefke. P5070090.jpg

    Handsome, eh? Produces a deep and loud woof so it suited the farmer, who said he had run over his previous dog with the tractor, and this smaller one didn't eat as much. Having a dog locked in a cage as a sort of alarm system is a common sight here in Belgium.

    Here is dog as first seen. He had many enormous ticks on his head.

    The farmer sounds a bit of a git if you ask me, the dogs took to you so that's a plus for you and the dog.

    Does look quite terrier-ish. Some Cairn maybe?

    One feature of the dog is the sticking up ears. Is it possible it's based on a French Bulldog, but with a snout?

    What about some Griffon Bruxellois? Still does not account for the pointy ears! They are a breed from Belgium though.
