Why do they all look like pit mixes, except for the second chihuahua? I don’t see a GSD in the bunch, although they said they have them.

That's no Malinois. One Lab x Border Collie mix, two Chis. 

All of the rest are dog fighters.

That brindle probably has malinois, dutchie, or shepherd.

Brindle and erect ears are common Pit Bull traits. I see no herder at all there.

It looks pit to me.

They are deliberately mislabeling it as a desirable breed to increase its chances of adoption.  A friend of mine is a Lab lover and she sends me shelter pictures all of the time where high content Pit Bulls are deliberately mislabeled as Labs for the same reason.  These shelters need to have their feet held to the fire.

Ear shape and overall dog does not say full pit-type to me. I’m aware they can have erect ears but the overall package says likely mixed with one of those breed. Face structure, muzzle shape etc. does not look right for just a bully breed.

Everything here is a lab mix or a Ridgeback mix, even without a ridge.  Rescues won’t take ridgeless Ridgebacks anymore. They have been burned by pits too many times.

Yes, they said they are mixes.

Good! Rescues need to operate with integrity.
