    I dont want to say it..
    But I am pretty sure she isn't a staffy.. .. although very hard to tell of this picture only.. She is very slight and obviously going through a height growth spurt.

    Also the staff as a breed does not have a long legged version.

    As others have asked are you in the UK?

    The breed standard was only recently reduced to 16" from 18". There's still plenty of tall staffies about.

    yes am in the UK.

    I have been told she looks like she has lab in her and various other breeds.

    Apparently staffy too.

    She is very very slim and long legged

    She looks like she's got a lot of growing left to do and will no doubt change dramatically over coming months.

    I would say looking at her now, she's mainly Staff diluted with something maybe Lab, American Bulldog or a touch of Boxer. :)

    edit- Did you meet her parents?
     
  12. Looks like maybe there could be some beagle in there to me!

    Very sweet!:D

    Lovely puppy, it looks exactly like a dog that used to come into the pub. He was a beautiful animal and fathered three litters last year that I know of! The owner brought a few of his pups in to show them off and the OP's pic was the spitting image of those pups. If I see the owner again I will ask him what his dog is and let you know. Only difference is the pups I saw had a few orangey coloured markings.

    Could she be a bull lurcher, straight whippet x staff saw one at a rescue and looked very simular. Alot of the bigger ones I've seen look like greys with staff faces.

    ... I see everyone's avoiding the p word. It was my first thought but of course it can be hard to say what's in a dog sometimes. I'd just be a bit concerned others might think they know what's in it.
