Ditto! Glad things are looking up. He is very handsome!

I know he's not exactly 'to standard' but why do people think he has something else in him? He doesn't look much off to me.

Congrats on the new addition! It's funny how things all work out. And good Lord, the legs on him! I think I'd have called him stilts. Lol

Because he has a darker nose and I'm told Ibizans only have flesh colored noses. His head/stop is a little off as well.

Personally I want to know more about the genetics side of things because while he isn't to standard I want to know if it's genetically impossible for him to be pure or if he could just be a fluke out of standard breeding. No one has given me any answers though. I know another Chazzer asked the same thing on a post on my Facebook but I don't think anyone responded about it so I have no idea.

Eta: the people I got him from said he is purebred and that the original owner got him from a breeder in Florida. No idea...

Huh. I know a few Ibizan people but dunno if you've asked them yet. (sarah is the main one. I could ask her) I've seen a lot of dogs of various breeds that have one or two features that look a little 'off'. And certainly have seen purebreds that look much more out of standard than him! I know I've heard they can't have a BLACK nose but his isn't really black, just darker.

Haha, yeah I'm just really curious.

I agree that he looks purebred. Maybe just from faulty stock?

Well, the UKC/AKC standard lists darker pigment/spots on the nose as a disqualification. Which to me means "it does happen in registered purebreds but it's a fault"
if it NEVER happened to purebreds.. I don't think they would even mention it.

*shrug* He may very well be mixed.. but I don't think the nose is really that big of a sign that he is. He may just not be very well bred..

Just my 2 cents.

Very happy for you guys!!

I don't know what he's mixed with, it would be very interesting to find out what he is mixed with. I've seen several mixes over the years, but not one that looks like him. I had thought Podengo at first, but they don't produce dark pigment either..so i don't know
