My guess, at first was black lab/pitt mix, but upon my second guess and googling before I said anything, I think she is a pure bred Blue Lacy, her body structure and the white chest appears to be common with Blue Lacy's.

Great pics, I'm glad Keno and her can be buddies! She is one nice looking non husky dog, lol.

After googling what a Blue Lacy was, lol, she seems spot on for one in looks and the temperament from what I read. She's definitely an intense dog, more than is good to be around the kids that they have and they often won't let the kids play with the dog. Curious how people like them ended up with a potential Texas state dog. She is a sweetheart. When she was a puppy we though greyhound/pitt mix. She's changed a lot in the last year.

My dad has a pure Weimaraner and some of the derp-like expressions on Spooky's face fit with my dad's dog to a tee.

Lol, that's why I did a google search, why is there a Texas state dog in Mo? But yup, she appears to be that. I've seen plenty around here, although they are in back of pick ups and never seen their white chest. Her face, ears and that dark blue coloring made me take a second guess, then the chest. Are Weimaraner's considered working dogs? Like here the black labs and blue lacy's are often used as working (bird dogs and hog dogs), just wondering? I also find it odd that working dogs such as the lab and lacy have floppy ears when they depend on hearing so much for their work(besides their eyes and nose), any ideas?

Heidi is a bird dog and considered a working dog. She depends on her nose and eyes. We refer to them as sight hounds such as grey hounds.

Weims are sporting dogs. I think the floppy ears probably protect the inner ear from getting debris in it while working in forest and brush as they often do. Their noses and eyes are much more useful senses for these conditions as well anyways.

A couple days late but we've now had Keno a year. He's definitely better for being with us. Vet said he has made amazing strides health-wise and he behaved like a model citizen for his exam the other day.

Hips are doing great! Vet tech said if she hadn't read his file she wouldn't have noticed anything different about him. He used to limp and walk really strangely and he doesn't do hardly any of that now unless he's been really pushing himself. He will always have a little strange of a gate just because. He's up 12 pounds from where he was when we got him and is at his ideal weight. And no relapse in giardia, which I worried about since it's supposedly so easy to get again once he's already had it. He's just a normal healthy butthead.
