All, We adopted a dog from a shelter in the area. His name is Riley (4 months old) and hes VERY intelligent - Sit, Come, Stay and Crate in less than three days. Proud papa thoughts aside, I had a question. All the shelter knew was that he was a surrender (not sure why) and they thought he looked like a Redbone Coonhound mix, however, a couple people that we have met mentioned he looks a lot like a Viszla. But who knows, he could be anything. His coat is mostly reddish/golden and he has a tail that contains black. I'm not really a dog expert so perhaps some of you might have some ideas or questions that will help us identify his roots. From what I have googled and read, he has traits of both... Thanks for your response.
