    Is Ivan a podengo?

    Post  madi.butler on Mon Nov 09, 2009 12:00 pm

    My mom rescued this dog from a county humane society when he was a puppy.
    They said he was a "collie mix" which made me literally laugh out loud.
    I've been watching him grow in to his paws and looking over breed standards.
    i'm pretty sure he's at least part podengo grande.
    the color of his coat, shape of his eyes, the gait when he runs.

    i'm putting it up to a vote. What do you guys think?

    here's Ivan, all grown up, and his companion dog Grace

    *Also, I realize how rare this breed is in the US which is why I'm surprised I find myself posting here.
    Its just... I haven't seen any other breed run like him except for maybe a whippet or greyhound, but he doesn't have the behaviors of a greyhound at all.*

    So where did you get him? What state - that might tell us if it is possible based on if hunters with unregistered dogs are in the area. The shape of the head looks like part Am Staff as well as the body and chest as we can see in the picture. Do you have any standing side views?
    Looks like a handsome well loved dog whatever he is.

    I got him from a no-kill shelter in Paris KY. They claimed they found him out on a county road.
    I thought Am Staf as well, but he doesn't have nearly enough muscle now that he's grown. His stance isn't as wide as theirs either.
    When I head home this week, I'll try to get a few pics of him standing, walking, etc.

    Very Happy he really is a very handsome little boy.
