Hi everyone! I'm new, obviously. :D

I have two cats (one 10, one 5 or 6) and one dog, Levi (almost 2), all who are rescues.

This is Frisky and Levi.

OMG, levimh!!!!! I am so excited!! Do you know what breed Levi is??? I found an American Foxhound puppy at 6 weeks of age, on the side of the road last September. Levi sure looks like he's got some hound in him...any foxhound!??! He looks alomst identical to Dodger - except for the ears, of course!! :D Does he have some pit bull in him!?

I love how you caught Frisky with her tongue out! I have a similar shot of my kitty - they look kinda dopey!!

Anyway, welcome to the board and tell me more about Levi!!

I'll attach a picture of Dodger...

Here's a shot of Minnow with her tongue sticking out - not very attractive but rather funny! At least Frisky looks cute, Minnow just looks scary!

Thanks for the welcome. :)

I was told by the SPCA that Levi is a GS/hound mix..that's it. I personally think he has Beagle/GS or Husky and then maybe whippet and Pit Bull or AmStaff in him. Most people agree with me about the whippet (he's very lean and runs like a banchee), but it's 50/50 on the APBT part.

Here's some more pictures..tell me what you think.

Saying that Levi has some whippet in him kinda makes sense (the ears!) - especially if he does sprint like you say! But I think he does probably have a little bit of pit bull - he looks rather broad chested but that could just be the angle of the photo. He is a very handsome dog and reminds me so much of Dodger! How tall is he? How much does he weigh?

Did you say you were going to post more pictures!?

Dodger loves to chase whippets - although he can never catch them (until they run out of gas).

Does Levi use his nose a lot or is he more of a sighthound?

When did you rescue him? How did the cats take to him?!

Sorry I'm asking so many questions, I rarely have the opportunity to talk with other hound owners - this is great!

I don't mind all the questions, Lissa!

Levi is finally now up to 40lbs. I got him last July and he weighed 32lbs...it took all this time to get him to 40lbs. I'm not sure what his height is...he's got long legs, but he's not big.

Levi uses his nose all the time. When I take him to this big soccer field to run, his nose goes down and the way he goes...unless he's running, then it's way up in the air! :)

When I first got him, my male cat didn't mind him one bit...nudge him with his nose and everything, but Frisky is all attitude and would'nt go near him. She's a lot better now, but she hisses at him every chance she gets. Levi couldn't care less about her.

I mentioned in my other post that I had pictures and then forgot to post them...oops, but I edited that last post and added them.

Well maybe Levi is mostlya hound/whippet cross with a "pinch" of husky!! He is adorable in any case! I'm glad you've joined and I can't wait to hear more about him!
