Greetings, So I'm fully aware that my dog may not, and likely is not a pure-bred dog. That being said, he does resemble several different breeds of dog, in particular the english foxhound, lemon colored. Dante is ~1 year old +/- a month, and my gf and I found him wandering the streets of Ottumwa, Iowa. Then, he was approximately 15 pounds and probably 9 inches at the whithers. After a lengthy search to locate his owner, we decided to keep the little guy. Today, he stands 22 inches at the whithers and weighs in at 55 lbs. Here are some photos: This was the little hound back when we found him. Some more recent pics Anyways, there are some clues to his pedigree based on the fact no one wanted to claim the little guy. Breeds such as Harriers and english foxhounds would be quite rare in Ottumwa, Iowa, and would be worth quite a bit. While there are large beagles, a 22 inch 55 lbs specimen would be quite unheard of. I feel that he is likely not american foxhound based on his square head shape. Which I find quite different from the american breed, which I see more traits from the Grand Bleu de Gascogne. That being said, most of my experience with Americans is mostly based on the popular walker coonhound. From what I have seen, lemon is also much more common in the english foxhound than in the american. Please feel free to offer me some of your thoughts. I'm very interesting in finding out what exactly my little guy is.
