Not sure what it is, but it’s not a whippet. Lovely dog.

Think the ears are wrong for a full bred Whippet, could be a cross ?

Pointer with the tail ?

SpockPaperScissorsLizardRock Mon 09-Mar-20 21:17:10

The face doesn't look like a whippet, maybe a cross breed?

Looks like a crossbreed to me!

Similar body and head to an English pointer, but I'd say crossed with something for those markings

Brindle Italian greyhound?

If you google her lots of pictures come up with this same dog, looks different in every picture. Read a few articles with her talking about her dogs but she doesnt mention the breeds. I guess a cross but dont know what types at all.

It’s not any sort of greyhound, it’s body is too heavy.

Pointer Cross I'd say.

Looks like it could be a beagle-greyhound cross. Gorgeous

Bull lurcher? Usually a staffie x sighthound

Definitely not a pointer cross, that would not come out brindle, the genetics wouldn't work.

* Bull lurcher? Usually a staffie x sighthound*

I'm thinking this.

RoombaSavedMySanity Mon 09-Mar-20 22:02:41

It's a cross breed and studies have shown it almost impossible to guess cross breeds in looks alone - something like less than 10% of cross breed guesses at the parent breeds match DNA testing.

Sorry OP!

I'm thinking bull lurcher too

I agree with Grumpy.

midnightstar66 Mon 09-Mar-20 22:08:41

That is not a whippet, nor is it any full breed dog. Could be a whippet crossed with a staffy or many other similarish crosses

Shambolical1 Mon 09-Mar-20 22:08:46

Yep bull lurcher. Or cross/derivative thereof.

I'm afraid dog breed DNA testing isn't entirely accurate, so there's more than one factor at play here. FWIW I find that most people who guess at my mutt's breed get at least one half of his parentage right, though few get both right.

Who is the woman?

QueenOfOversharing Mon 09-Mar-20 22:26:09

Got a cute bully-looking face. Agree bull-lurcher looks right.

Pointer cross
