Ears

This is Nigel. He's supposed to be a Dogo Argentino mix but who knows. Dogos are usually all white and have their ears cut down to almost nothing. Thank goodness Nigel got rescued before he got his ears cut.

There's a hint of blue in his coat which matches the hint of blue in his awesome ochre eyes. He's basically gorgeous.

Except for his flapper feet. It's hard to tell from the photos but Nigel's got feet fit for a clown. He's either going to grow up to be a really big dog or a giant duck. I wouldn't be too surprised if he had some Great Dane in him. He's only four months old and already 40 - 50 pounds(?) Good thing he loves everyone and everything and if things turn out, everyone and everything will love him back.






For adoption information on Nigel and other dogs (and cats and other animals), please visit Toronto Animal Services.

I'm voting for duck. With those ears, I truly believe Nigel can fly! He's ADORABLE!

That's a puppy??? Oi! He's aready bigger than either of my adult dogs. Hope he is adopted by someone with a really, really large yard!

Love the way the photos catch his ears. Maybe he is a dogo-eagle cross, already practicing for flight... or a really large duck....

He is too cute for words and those ears make him look like the Flying Nun! Someone is going to be very luck to be with him!

Look at this guy and you see the perfect reason dogs ears should never be cut....

Rachelle said...

He really is a beautiful, unique looking dog...his colouring is gorgeous. Whatever mix he is, it certainly worked out well. The thing I like the best, though, is his fur...it looks like velvet and I bet it feels like it, too...just wish I could reach through the picture and pet him.

How could anyone cut those ears? My gosh...he is just delicious...one of the cutest pooches I've seen in a while (at least since yesterday ;-) But really...how cute is he??

Hi there I think your dogo mix is such a cutie!. Normally Dogo Argentinos are pure white, however he is still adorable :) If anyone is interested in learning more about the dogo breed click on the link dogo information. I created the blog to get more basica information out there about the breed!

Those photos are absolutely precious. I hope Nigel finds his forever home. So many wonderful dogs out there in need of a break ;-<
