What breed(s) of dog?

My parents got our dog Sasha 5 years ago from the local animal shelter and all we knew was that she was a LabX. So what other breed or breeds of dog could she be?? Ive heard Pitbull Terrier and Boxer often, but what are the other possibilities??

Some INFO

Height: 21 inches at the shoulder

Weight: About 60 - 70 lbs

Very affectionate. Smart, but aloof. Extremely protective. Loves to play and run around.

    I honestly don't see any pitbull in her and they have some very distinctive physical characteristics. Same with boxers. Also, both those breeds tend to be gregarious.

    She most certainly has some lab, based on the aloofness I could guess maybe some hound. Hounds can be very independent but very loving with their people. Aloofness could also be from being smart too.

    Terriers have such distinctive personalities I think you would know. (they are not called terrorists for nothing!)

    But smart, affectionate, protective, she could have some German Shepherd. Great dogs.

    My best guess is lab and shepherd. Fits the personality characteristics, fits the look of the dog. If she gets a little obsessive about stuff like playing with the tennis ball then I think you can confirm the mix. :-)

    She looks like a great dog. Very cute.

    In my journey, the canine breeds that are the least in all probability to develop human aggression themes are the Pug, Beagle, English Bulldog, and Boston Terrier. i've got not truly considered an occasion of any of those breeds that i'd say had a severe aggression situation, nonetheless I even have met a quantity hectic Beagles. nicely-bred Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers, Pit Bulls, and Greyhounds would be acceptable up there to boot. on the different hand are the breeds that are maximum in all probability to be aggressive. I even have on no account had a delightful journey with a Yorkie. in actuality, of the 50 or so Yorkies that I even have encountered, i'd say all 50 had some style of aggression situation. Chow Chows, Akitas, and Chihuahuas are acceptable up there to boot. yet, i'd say that the main aggressive canine breeds are the multiple breeds of Terrier from Scotland, the Scottish Terrier, West Highland White Terrier, Cairn Terrier, Dandie Dinmont Terrier, and Skye Terrier. Scotties and Westies in specific are very bitey canines.

    Glad you included the personality info. That cinched for me. She is of course mostly yellow Lab. I suspected the narrow muzzle, delicate feet, semi-erect ears and feathering on tail and shoulders were from a Border Collie. Since she has a couple of colored marks (ears) I think it quite likely. Border Collies are devoted, one person dogs that throw themselves into play with joy.

    She has no characteristics that make me think of Pits or Boxer. Labs Pits and Boxers have broad muzzles, Labs and Boxers have sturdy paws. None of these 3 have feathering. Labs, Pits and Boxers are also outgoing and very social but Border Collies are more reserved.

    I don't think she looks much like a pit bull or boxer, personally.

    I see more of a lab and shepard look to her.

    The vet can run tests for you though if you want a for sure answer.

    I do not see the Pit Bull or Boxer but maybe shepherd, even a collie. But Lab is for sure there.

    Lab/Border Collie maybe. It's not uncommon for the lab to be really dominate in lab mixes, which in your case it is, but her face is shaped like a Border and her ears stand like a Border too.

    She just looks Lab to me. Maybe some Aussie several generations back.
