Of course she is listed as a lab mix.

Nicole is about 35lbs, and around 8-12 months old
She has scars all over her!





She has purple stitches in her ear




My vote is lab/beagle

I bet she is one of those dogs that is sooo mixed no one knows what she is!

Either way, she has an awesome personality.

except for the lack of tuck (which could be from being fat) she looks like an old fashioned mountain cur w/ the short highset drop ears & the square head. off hand she looks VERY similar to the older Hugh Stephens stock of mt cur. they are treated like a seperate breed but the type crops up a lot in other lines. for that matter she also looks similar to a black dog Robert Kemmer had way back when, 60s i think. depending on how close you are to southern ohio the chances are good that she is a stephens. the stephens stock is most common in ohio, WV & eastern KY (although there is an excellent hunter/breeder in ID & the faulkner strain of stephens is mostly in WI). the scars could be from honorable work. dogs that actually catch coons tend to get their faces cut up & their ears split. their location on the underside cheeks & the ears would lead me to believe she is equally comfortable on the chest as the throat when killing a coon. if she is working bobs also she would tend to have scarring on the side & top of the head pulling toward the eyes from throating the cat. while coons can cut other places especially on a slick coated dog cats will leave a lot more scarring on the undeside on a dog that hasn't learned to lay beside them.

thanks for the link!
She seems to have no prey drive though. she is great with my indoor cat, and didnt bother the possum that was by the fence a couple of hours ago. she just looked at it and decided it was no fun and kept playing with Ruckus and Lynn.

if she's as young as you say she is then she may have been turned off by some nimrod putting her on a coon too early.which would also explain why no one was looking for her
