In Blade Runner 2049, what is the breed of the dog that Deckard owns?

I've checked the IMDB credits and neither dog (not massively surprising), nor trainer is listed.

Here's the back of the dog, for comparisons

    Do robotic dogs dream of electric rabbits? – HorusKol Oct 8 '17 at 13:29

    Canoid? Candroid? – Buzz Oct 8 '17 at 15:50

    I don't know. Why don't you ask him? – Stephen Collings Oct 10 '17 at 0:40

Looks like an Estrela Mountain Dog to me.

Elkhound is not even a close comparison.

    Can you elaborate and perhaps provide either a source or photographic comparisons? This would help to improve this answer greatly. – Möoz Oct 8 '17 at 23:31

Looks like a Norwegian Elkhound. He is pretty big for that breed, so might be a mix.

    This answer would be improved by side by side pictures of Deckard's dog and a Norwegian Elkhound, or some source stating that that is the breed of the dog. – Politank-Z Oct 8 '17 at 20:16

The dog is a Caucasian Ovcharka, probably a small female.

  • While your answer may well be correct (I know nothing about dogs), we need answers to provide evidence rather than just an assertion. Perhaps an official description of the breed, and a list of the points of similarity. – Blackwood Oct 12 '17 at 1:38

I think it was a sharplaninatz. They would have just shaved her a bit. I used to have one a long time ago. Such wonderful dogs. I miss her.

    Can you provide so evidence to back up your assertion? – Blackwood Oct 12 '17 at 11:53
