Well, Beagle/Sheltie is what the owner of the mom told me. And I'd really have to agree, she just looked like it. She was Beagle size and was tricolor but had long hair and half pricked ears. They said they had met her parents and that's what she was.
I'd say the other type of Hound cross is very possible... the way the kids described the dog, it sounded like a medium sized black and tan hound mix... around here people breed Beagles and Coonhounds (usually either Walkers or English) to make their hunting dogs.
