Can someone please tell me WTF *I* have?
I know she's part German Sheperd, but what else? DEBS, remember how you asked how big she was going to get, and were curious what she would look like at 5-6 months old? Well, the cat/dog picture is her ... I guess about two weeks ago. Keep in mind, we've had her since Dec 2nd with her weighing 4.5 pounds.
Before:

These pics were taken about 5 mins ago.
She now weighs 10 pounds, she's almost 10 weeks old (I guesstimate she was born around October 15th).

Last picture. Now, what is she? And why is she so damned aggressive? I have tried EVERYTHING I can think of. She's getting better about not chewing on moving pantlegs and shoes. A firm "No" or "Stop" and she'll usually stop, but I gotta say it every time I take a step, lol.
But - she BITES. Mainly at my hands, but if she can't get that she'll take an arm, or a peice of my side, or a nipple :eek . Wheenver she does it I will firmly say "No" and replace my hand with a toy. However, even if she sees the toy in my hand she will STILL go after my hand! If my hand is anywhere NEAR her toys, she'd rather go after my hand. She growls at my hand, lunges at my hands. I've tried the whole "biting her back" by pinching her lips and it helped for.. oh.. 30 mins and now she doesn't care. What gives? She seems vicious in one instance, but lovey 3 hours later.

we have a female dog that does the same thing, but she does not bite hard at all. She more grabs your hand with her mouth.
I wish I could say the same for Eleanor. At first, she will treat my hand as a bone, something to gnaw on. If she gets really worked up while we're playing, though, she gets very aggressive towards my hand and will nip and bite it hard.
I'm not able to take her to classes yet because she doesn't have her third set of puppy shots.
Those come next week if I remember correctly. It's been almost 3 weeks since the last set was given. Then, after that, I have to get her fixed so it'll be February before we get to classes. She does know how to sit, though :)
OMG and she won't EAT! Knowing how much she's gained, I know you must be thinking "Then where'd the weight come from?". It came from pork chops and chicken, lol. She won't eat dog food, wet or dry, she picks at the cat food wet/dry. She likes Cheerios and chicken and pork chops but I can't keep giving her that. Here's hoping she'll get hungry enough to start eating.... Her Own Food.

Looks like shepard/chow(maybe) mix. The chow would explain the aggressiveness.

Its in the puppy stage still, mine is doing that aslo. Everytime you catch it chewing or biting and you dont want it to do it. roll it over on its back and grab it below the ears and just a little back from the jaws and tell it a firm NO. After doing this after a few days it will start listening better. It also shows the pup that you are the master It took mine about 2 days to get the idea and now you can sit with it and pet it without drawing back a chewed on finger:laughing

As far as what kind of breeds are in it there are several possibilities! May have to wait another couple of months before you can see how it will grow.

Indeed. The vet said he thought she may have Chow and possibly Lab in her.
I grew up with a Chow and loved her to peices, but I can't remember her as a puppy. It scares me, really, to think she has Chow in her. Why?
The Chow I grew up with bit someone so we had to put her down. I'm so scared she's going to bite someone and we're going to have to put her down. She is Extremely Afraid of other (larger) dogs as I found out last week when our dumbass neighbor let their lab loose to go to the bathroom. Anyhow, she is scared of some people, too, 'cept Matt of course, and MEEEE.
Why can't she be scared of ME? :laughing Then maybe my hands won't look like I'm being abused :D

Ooo, thanks, I will start trying this! Normally I'll pull back at the scruff of her neck, and she usually releases but will just do it again when I let go. I'll try the back thing though, I definitely agree it shows them who's boss, hehe.

Maybe a lab/shepard mix....:confused

Hell dont ask me I got the wool pulled over my eyes with my pup.

He is adorable what ever breed he is.

Do try what Streak suggested it has worked on Tyson.I was told by someone who took their dog to the puppy class at Petsmart.Also when he is biting while you are petting hold him tightly in your arms while you rub his belly.Do that until he stops biting then praise him for being good.
