Can anyone tell me the breed of this dog please? Sorry the picture isn't great I just screenshot it from FB.
My great granny had a dog very very similar to this and she was the sweetest girl. Haven't seen any more of them for years and years.
Thanks

Saluki?

Not a great pic to help us, to be honest. Wouldn't think it was a Saluki. I would think it was probably a crossbreed of some sort.

If I had to say breed, given that it looks as if it's in some sort of carrier, I would say a not particularly well bred Miniature Long-Haired Dachshund.

What size was your GG's dog?

I think it looks like a saluki too. They are typically really gentle, sweet dogs (I think - never had one) so fits the description.

It's got saluki colouring but Salukis are tall dogs and ours had a much longer face and ears. More like a greyhound.

As others have said, could be a cross, looks a lot like our working cocker spaniel but paler and she was closer to that size. The brown nose is sometimes a sign of bad breeders crossing two recessive colourings together (in labs I know this is the case anyway) so may be trying for designer pale colourings.

Looks like a spaniel cross to me, or a dachshund cross but you’d have mentioned if your gran’s dog was smaller?

I thought some sort of spaniel cross?

dd's boyfriend has an app on his phone where you can take a photo of any dog and it tells you the breed - it got it right for my crossbreed dog and said what mix she is! Dunno the app name.

Legs are too short to be a saluki. I would guess at a long haired dachshund, possibly crossed with something else

Specifically working cocker. Shows look very different.

Working Cocker could indeed work, but I'm still heading towards a Dachs or cross from the context of the basket (and legs look short).

Presumably the OP would know if her great grans girl was a short but long dachshund?

If you google 'blonde long haired dachshund' you will see dogs that look similar but they nearly all have black noses (I don't think I've ever seen a pink nosed dachsie and I'm an afficionado)

A sense of scale would help!

Not a Saluki.

Looks like a spaniel cross to me.

I think it looks quite a lot like a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever... Smile
