This is Buddy. He's about the most quintessential mutt around. I know dogs and dog breeds inside and out and I still have yet to figure out what the heck he is (I'm the person anyone I know comes to with dog or breed questions). He's about 5 years old and the best dog I have ever owned. Just for curiosities sake I'm about to cave and buy a DNA test. Here are the facts: -He has long hair that grows as long as the hair you see on his tail. I clip him down -His ears stand when his coat is clipped all the way down, just the tips are down -His coat mats very easily even with daily brushing -His tail curls up over his back when he is excited -He has webbed feet -His tail is like a rat tail and very skinny as though it would be docked if he were purebred -He weighs about 40 pounds -He has spots on his tongue -He tracks like a hound -He hates water (could be because of abuse as a puppy, got him at 8 months) -He's a couch potato but is always up for a good walk or romp in the yard -He has developed dog aggression as he has aged despite being very well socialized and taken to the dog park all the time -He rarely barks (sounds funny even when he tries!) -He loves people and is VERY eager to please -He has no prey drive toward any other animals (except the aforementioned dogs) -He's exceptionally smart, up there with goldens, labs, aussies, ect. -When he runs his back arches up (like a smiley face curve) That's all I can think of right now. Feel free to ask questions that might point to what breeds he is. Any guesses???
