Dixie's possible breeds . . .
I know there is some confusion regarding Dixie's breed.
I was looking up Spitz dogs, and found a breed called a German Spitz. It doesn't look exactly like Dixie, but similar.

The German Spitz is known to have various different coloured coats. So it's fur probably can be grey-ish like Dixie's.
I also found the Keeshond, or Wolfspitz. It's a different kind of German Spitz, and a bit larger.
The muzzle of the Keeshond is black, but the breed can sometimes have ' milky white' mouths.
Dixie may not be either breed. She might be a mongrel. A theory taken up by some fans is that Dixie is a long haired chihuahua. But she's got a lot of hair for a chihuahua, unless her looks were exaggerated.
