Your mixed breed dog of the day


She is 4 months old and about 15 lbs in this photo. I think she looks like a JRT mix of some kind, and probably that's what she'd be called if her parents were unknown. However, we know that her sire is a bassett hound/beagle cross and mother a chihuahua. (The same parents from this litter, but that's a long story that I'm angry about so let's not go there...)

And here is one of her brothers (same litter), who looks very much chihuahua:

Dog phenotypes. Gotta love 'em.

Sammy shows equal enthusiasm for rolling in cat poop and rotting fish, which either says something about dogs' odor preferences, or ours.
