Default Henry the mystery mutt!

I consider Henry to be quite the wondermutt. I truly have no idea what he is. His original intake papers are sketchy and obviously the awesome person who dumped a box of puppies is a reliable source.

Whoever dumped Henry and his littermates owned his mother, who they listed as a 'lab/pitt mix' on the intake paperwork. They had no idea what his father was, but lived in an area with intact hound mixes and beagles.

I've heard many breed guesses and I'm genuinely curious what you all think.

Henry's about 19 inches tall and weighs between 33-34 pounds. He's very slim and a super fast runner. I've only seen one dog ever keep pace with him; a retired racing greyhound! He has little drive but is very athletic and agile. Quite light on his feet. His behavior and personality is fairly houndy, but he is also more sensitive and soft than your typical hound. He's also very smart and quite a bit more obediend than a beagle. And he's very very in tune with us.

Thanks for any input!

I'm going to say some sort of Cur/Beagley mix....just saying this since I have both breeds with some Lab thrown in for fun

Basically if these two had puppies:




Would equal a Henry. But that's just me cause I LOVE Henry but you already know this!!!

Lab/pit/beagle doesn't sound far fetched.

Just on his looks I'd probably guess pit/beagle anyway!

He reminds me a lot of Leilah, a Beagle/Vizsla mix.

When I saw just the top part of the dog, and hadn't scrolled down yet, I just thought Beagle mix. So Beagle sure seems likely. Though the Beagle itself is just basically a scaled down version of a Foxhound. So, could be a different hound mix. There sure is hound there, though.

Hahaha, yes! He does look like a combo of those two.

Yes, Lilah is exactly who he reminds me of. If I recall her mother was a Vizsla and her father a Beagle.

mountain cur, maybe with some feist. Because they come in brindle, mt curs that are picked up on the road or dropped at shelters are commonly labeled labXpit. So yeah considering where you're located, how he looks & what you wrote about his personality, I'm gonna say scatterbred mt cur that didn't make the grade in the woods
