I'm actually wondering if she's a Harrier.

what you have is a nice fat hound what kind is anyone's guess. there are folks who can look at a hound and tell you the line & sometimes breeder they came from but i'm not one of them. i'm a little better on some of the curs & bulldogs but not hounds.

I would honestly take that advice with a grain of salt. Unless your vet is a harrier owner, breeder, shower or judge. As vets do not know everything there is to know (much like a human doctor) espeacially about dog breeds.

I'm not a hound person, so I have no idea...

But she sure is lovely!!! Congrats on the new family member!!! Keep us posted with lots of pics please!

Also, I'd have to agree with Tankstar, vets are trained in general animal wellness. They don't really get much training in specific breeds... so unless s/he was a harrier fancier and very active with the breed... s/he may not be the best person to take "breed" related advice from.

american foxhounds are an amalgamation of hounds brought over from europe (mostly britain, ireland & france). this blend is the source all the coonhounds stem from. so EVERY conformation you find in a coonhound WILL be found in a foxhound. only people familiar enough to spot specific lines can tell for sure. coonhound & foxhounds are just names as both are used to hunt a variety of game from hares to hogs to cat (big & small) to coon. if it doesn't fly hounds hunt it or have in rescent history.

She's too big to be a Harrier but I really can't tell if she is a Treeing Walker or a Foxhound. Whichever she is she has the most gorgeous, shiny coat!

How is she too tall to be a Harrier when they are the smallest of the 3 breeds you listed?

From the links MicksMom posted:

Foxhound:
Quote:
Height
Dogs should not be under 22 or over 25 inches. Bitches should not be under 21 or over 24 inches measured across the back at the point of the withers, the hound standing in a natural position with his feet well under him.
Treeing Walker Coonhound:
Quote:
Size
20-27 inches
Harrier:
Quote:
Size--19 to 21 inches for dogs and bitches, variation of one inch in either direction is acceptable. Proportion is off-square. The Harrier is slightly longer from point of shoulder to rump than from withers to ground.
