Telling the difference between a purebred and a mixed breed can sometimes be tough. If you received the dog from a privately licensed breeder who was able to provide documentation of the dog's pedigree then chances are it is a purebred. If you received the dog from another source other than a licensed breeder I would suggest going to the AKC.website and looking up the overall standard if your dog meets “most” of the requirements then chances are it is purebred. Just keep in mind the standards are set to what is acceptable in the show ring, slight variations may occur. Also keep in mind that unless the dog came from a respectable breeder who is able to provide you with a complete history on the dog you may never be able to prove whether your dog is a pureblood or not.
