AnswerYou take him/her to a breeder and they will give you the anwser. Of you find out who is mom and dad are. AnswerI don't think there's really any way you can know for sure, unless you bought your purebred dog 'with papers' from an AKC registered breeder. For mixed breeds, you can ask your vet and he/she will give their best guess, based on your dog's appearance.

If you bought your dog from the breeder, you can ask the breed of the mother, and if they have any idea the breed of the father. Unless the mother is purebred, they're unlikely to know.

AnswerTo find a breed, you can go to a local library or bookstore and check out a book on pet breeds. There you can find pictures that can help you match up your dog even if it is a mixed breed. AnswerAlso check out Its site dedicated to helping people figure your breed
