Looks like a cross between a Corgi, a Dachshund, and a Jack-Rabbit:-D

The first pose fits the breed. Royal by name, Royal by nature.

Had a King Charles spaniel years ago and they definitely believe they're superior.

A rescue dog- originally from Romania. Any ideas what breed she might mostly be?

You'd be best to start your own thread instead of inserting into one that is years old.

To me, her head and size is reminiscent of a standard schnauzer. Having said that, not all dogs are either mixes or pure breeds. When dog showing started in the 1800's, it kicked off the formal "standardization" of breeds. Meaning, a breed standard, or, how a breed should look, behave, and function, was formally organized and written down. Some breeds, like the Poodle, Maltese, and Shih Tzu, were already established by hundreds of years. Some are even very ancient breeds, like the Saluki and Pharaoh Hound. Some were isolated by natural boundaries like islands, or strict breeding practices to retain purity. But many breeds were developed during the 1800's from existing native dogs. So even though most people think of classifying a dog as either "pure" or "mixed", there is another category of dog, which is neither because they don't come from any formal breed. Especially coming from Romania I don't see any obvious or dominant breed.

Just my opinion but of course at the end of the day, where a dog comes from doesn't really matter.. it's just background information.

It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll. I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

Thank you for your reply. The photo was posted for the forum, the question was asked because of the international nature of the forum, and is only from curiosity- she is a fun dog with a lovely nature. She just happens to have a Romanian passport.
She is indeed the size and facial type of a schnauzer. The closest breed suggested for all features has been a Pumi, a Hungarian shepherd dog.
