    Sorry, I don't know the breed but wow you are one brave person. You name him Puss. My dogs name Par and my sons and wife call him Pary. I have another one name Rock or Rocky.

    Well theirs no bad intentions behind the name.. He's just a really nervous dog so puss fits him. In fact we named him after Puss in boots from Shrek 2 because similar colors and personality :D

    He's got the telltale Pittie smile :D I'd guess hound/pit mix. He's definatley at least half pit, and he looks houndy...

    He looks to me like he could be at least part Basenji . . .

    What kinds of sounds does he make? He has enough of the look that he could be full.

    They are fairly rare in most areas of the U.S., but rather popular in the Louisiana bayou/Gulf area.

    I'm haven't read any of the other posts, so I'm sorry If you've already found out what he is, but here's my 2 cents.....

    [​IMG]
    There he looks like a Pit Bull

    [​IMG]
    Ummm I want to say here he looks basenji-ish???

    So my guess is Basenji/Pitt mix. Good luck with that Katrina pup! He's a cute one!

    It's like someone cut off a Pit Bull's hindquarters and glued a Basenji's on in their place. The front of him looks Pit Bull, but I keep coming back to Basenji for the rear. 0.o

    Handsome dog, btw.
