Well we still don't know what she is except gorgeous!

That's Irish. "She is gorgeous."
Staffordshire Terrier and Afghan hound would be my guess. She is indeed gorgeous.
Irish is just about 11 months and is quite the handful. She loves to run and has such long elegant strides. She is a little barky and can frighten people. I am working on correcting this behaviour rigorously.
The most popular breed identities are english bull terrier and white shepard. Sometimes we hear whippit and akita.
Now Uncensored has been nice enough to take the bull terrier to the next level, a staffordshire.
The photo doesn't reflect her almost always curled tail.
Anyway thanks all! We love her.
It is always so pleasant to see a dog who is loved and appreciated by her people. Because that's all a dog really wants...people.
Thank you for that. : ) So many dogs are not so lucky. : (
You are so right. She was so broken when she came to us I was hesitant in taking her on. She had been beat and starved. Now she is adapted and lovely, a real gem.
Thank you Kooshdakhaa.
Yes, there is a special reward in rescuing them. Sometimes when I'm feeling down about myself I look around at my rescued animals and think...I saved this life...and that one...and that one...
And I feel better. : )
Pretty dog, and lovely that you've taken her in as a rescue.
Rescues are tricky. I've got a bassett hound that I rescued. She was nearly starved, heartworm positive, has a bullet in her leg and was very withdrawn.
She's a happy girl now, and headstrong.
People tend to think bassetts are these shy sweet retiring dogs...they really aren't. They're hounds and hounds are, essentially, killers.
But they're so darned CUTE.
People expect saints to be a lot more lethargic than they actually are, too. While they are fairly sedentary, they definitely have a playful and athletic nature, and can be quite territorial!
