He is a cutie!! Snowball is a mixed breed who's parents were also mixed breeds! If you're looking for a dog like Snowball, the best place to look is your local shelter or www.petfinder.com.

Finally heard back on the dog in the commercial. His name is Snowball and he's a mixed breed. His trainer said he doesn't know what breeds he goes back into as his mom and dad were mixed breeds also.

Iams is a brand name for dog food manufactured by Procter & Gamble. The company sells pet food formulated for puppy, adult and mature. Its products are developed by nutritionists and veterinarians and can be found in three main formulas: ProActive Health, Healthy Naturals and Premium Protection. Veterinary formulas for pets with special dietary requirements are also available.

If you're talking about that white shaggy dog, I was wondering the same thing myself. It looks like a LabraTese or a labratese doodle. Labratese is a mix between Labradore and Maltese. Maltese dogs can be mixed with many breeds. The most common mixes are Maltese-terrier, or Maltese-poodle (often nicknamed maltipoo). It can also be mixed with a Lhasa apso creating a rare mix, Kyi- Leo. There are also popular mixes with poodles. Most popular is of course Labradoodle  - a crossbred dog created by crossing the Labrador Retriever and the Standard, Miniature or Toy Poodle. The term first appeared in 1955 and then was used as an allergen-free guide dog. Currently, they are not considered a breed by any major fancier and breeder organization. Not all Labradoodles are hypoallergenic, but it is a quality that many look for and appreciate in this breed of dog. Since there is no real hypoallergenic dog, the term is often used loosely.

I like this one most. It's called Real Love.

This commercial features Harvey, a Beagle/Corgi blend, and his actual owner Hannah. Iams is all about celebrating the unconditional love between people and their pets, so the spot highlights the special bonding moment when it's meal time. When the ad team talked with Hannah during the TV shoot about the ways Harvey showed his love when it came to his food, she said he likes to spin; that authentic behavior is featured in the final spot.

    She's a goldendoodle -- that's the mixed breed. I''m nearly positive b/c we have a 10 mos old gd and they could be siblings...seriously, the first time we saw the ad we almost fell off the couch. They are great dogs...google goldendoodle and you'll see there's no doubt about it...
