    We fostered this dog and would like to adopt a dog with the same breed.
    He has a long neck, skinny little tail, face of a chihuahua but longer nose, and he weighs 6.8 pounds at around 1 years old. When he sits down he only sits halfway.

    thank you!

    Always difficult to tell, but he looks to me like a Chihuahua cross.

    Maybe Whippet in the mix.

    Might even be a straight up chihuahua though! The deerhead types are slimmer and rangier with a longer head. Very cute looking dog though!:)

    I think the may have chi but the ears are so wrong!

    Miniature pinscher sounds a reasonable guess, or it could be a mix of several you breeds with a sprinkle of terrier!

    Mini Pinscher cross. So it's not an actual breed. If you are fostering this dog is he not available for you to adopt him yourself?

    Sadly i cannot. Its a shame they make you keep a dog for weeks and dont give you the option to adopt it after bonding with it. I have two other dogs and they all really loved each other. Now they both miss him

    How very strange of them, a ready made home & they don't take the opportunity to take up the offer so they can leave a space to help another dog! How very sad for both the dog & yourselves.
