For kicks and giggles, I'd like to get other's opinions on my mixed dog's breed(s).

A few (possibly) pertinent traits:

He is 43 lbs and 6 years old. Will eagerly hike, run, play, and get wound up easily, but is very content just lazing around for hours. Is very good with the kids and loves them, but he is rather clingy and attached to the wife. Isn't terribly vocal. Has a very deep bark and a, well, not sure what to call it, but it kind of sounds like a high pitched rolling of the "R" letter if gotten very excited. Not sure if any of that helps....

Anyway, we're pretty sure he's a mix, but we were told Irish Terrier by previous owner, but the vet she always took him to had him listed as Irish Wolfhound. The wirey hair indicates some kind of terrier involvement, but I'm not sure about an Irish Terrier. At 43 lbs, he's no Irish Wolfhound, although I think his head has a very good liking to one.

In the middle picture, he doesn't normally pin his ears back. He just thinks he's in trouble because we made him hold still for a photo, lol.

What do ya'll think could be involved in this mix?

He looks EXACTY like my next door neighbor's dog. Definitely a terrier mix.

I agree, but there are sooo many types of terrier and they look almost nothing alike, lol.

Good call on the Wheaten. There are a lot of similarities, for sure. I also think he looks a lot like a cross between a Great Pyrenees and Irish Wolfhound, but that would be huge!

The Wheaten does have a different tail, and those haircuts are kind of goofy. I could definitely believe a Wheaten/Retriever mix maybe? His tail and undercoat looks Golden Retriever-ish to me.

I think it's a possibility, but he has smaller ears than a Golden and most of the Wheatens in pictures. shrug

I am searching for a Chinese restaurant menu joke, but I cannot quite come up with the proper syntax.

Terrier sight hound mixes are known as lurchers, they were bred as poachers dogs to steal game off the landowners.

Being typically ‘bitzers’ or ‘heinz’ breeds they are usually incredibly healthy.

I want my next dog to be a lurcher


If it's the truth....it can handle the pressure !!!

Judging by the sitting photo, he has some Golden in him. This was mine some years back. I still miss him.
