Miley Cyrus is giving her new pup Mate a whole lot of love. The new besties went on a walk around the neighborhood last Wednesday, soaking in the sun and good times. But while Miley's been blogging about her adorable new German Shepherd, many people are wondering if that's really the kind of dog he is.
Well, it's true. Although, German Shepherds generally have long, square muzzles, large ears that stand up tall and tan/black coats, Mate is, in fact, a White German Shepherd, also called a White American Shepherd.
Sure, he's got floppy ears, a white coat and looks a lot more like a Golden Retriever mix, but do a quick online search for the breed and you'll see more impossibly cute pics of pups just like Mate.
Of course, we're not dog experts, so Miley's dog could very well have traces of other breeds in him, too, but for now, you can stop looking at Mate with a raised eyebrow. He's definitely a German Shepherd!
