merico's thread brought to mind this little guy we had at work. he was identified by the rescue society as being a pitbull/dalmation mix however they were very wrong with their description. god only knows how they came up with dalmation. little junior was abandoned by his owners because they couldn't afford to pay for the surgery to remove to bouncy balls from his intestines :( but he has a great home now.
i don't know if you can tell well from the pics ( they were taken with a camera phone) but he is an american bulldog/bassett hound mix and just the sweetest little guy on earth.
He is too cute! I have a neighbor that has a german shepard/bassett hound mix, it looks just like a german shepard but has the legs of the bassett hound. It is cute, but looks like a very very short g/s!
