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?
