Eddie’s ears are part Foxhound uplifted by part Shepherd genes.
His long legs are all Foxhound. They seem to have springs in them.
Eddie was presented as "100% German Shepherd", which is the breed I wanted to rescue, so I went to the shelter in the other state and picked him up. I never had a German Shepherd before, but he looked different than I expected. So we did a DNA test.
He's mostly English Foxhound and White Swiss Shepherd (whatever that is) and his curled tail comes from his 18% of one breed and possible other breeds (less percentage) I don't recall. Explained a lot.
Eddie has high energy, is exotic looking, sweet, loving, curious, fond of his dog pack (5 other dogs) and respectful of our cats. His ears want to hang down, but first start to stand up (the Shepherd gene) before they can fall. SO cute. Without a running start, he can jump straight up very high as if there are springs in his legs. Amazing to see.
But I've never had a dog who at 8 months is still not totally housebroken. I think he tries to hold it and then gets excited and forgets where he is If you have any new ideas on housebreaking, let me know.
