Just by the nose and the colouring of the dog, I think he might have some Springer Spaniel in him. I think I can see a little bit of feathering on his legs. How are you going to rescue this dog if the owner won't surrender him, and what about the dog makes you believe he needs rescuing?
I am a newbie here so forgive me for not introducing myself..... This doggie I am asking about is on Craiglist. It is one of a few I am looking at. I am on Petfinder and have applications out for doggies we like and breeds we are looking for. Cairn Terrier and Fox Terrier. She had her doggie listed as a fox terrier and then mix in the description. SO I was curious from doggie owners as to what the opinion may be that the little guy was mixed with. I am new to the doggie world hoping to adopt/rescue a furry friend soon She wants to give the dog up for adoption; she has no more time for him and wants him to have a better home than what she can provide right now. I used the wrong verbiage here. Sorry :) I have been on the rescue sites at Petfinder so much trying to find the perfect doggie for us-all I know is the word rescue. I was not thinking of finding any doggies on Craigslist. This guy was forwarded to me by a friend.

I'm thinking he could be mixed with either rat terrier or Jack Russell. The coloring and pattern also look to me like possible springer spaniel in the mix but I've never seen a springer mix without some waviness to the coat. I have seen springers with a pink nose. It would be much easier to tell with a standing side view.
