Default Mouse / hamster cross?

I rehomed this little girl from a girl with too many pets, and who had to downsize. She originally came from pets at home aqdoption section. I know someone on here said she could be dwarf hamster hybrid, but would it be possible to cross hamster and mouse?

Due to her long pointy nose, and her longer than usual tail, OH sis thought she might be a ham mouse cross .

Any thoughts?







sorry not a good pic, but gives you an idea of her body shape and tail size

She is a dominant spot Chinese hamster Louise. These pics are much clearer than the original ones yu posted and I was hesitant about those as you could only see her face and you seemed sure she was a Russian.
Chinese hamsters have a little prehensile tail which they can curl around things and hold on with. The are really gentle and make lovely pets. We have a boy Chinese.
Mice and hamsters cannot be crossed but the Russian Campbells and Winter Whites can as they are so very close genetically.
Hope you enjoy your little Chinese Hamster.

Thanks for that Hellsdarkrose and Souffle, to be honest I wasn't sure what type she was, and neither was her previous owner. But just looked up Dominate spot Chinese, and the photo on the west midlands hamster club and there is one that looks so much like Grace it is unbelievable

She is a really pretty hamster. Sorry I didn't have anymore info for you but other than knowing what type she was I don't know anything about them.
