Well we went and got a new puppy, he is a Basset Hound/Rottweiler mix...quite a weird mix I know. We named him Shamus (pronounced shame-us), and he a VERY smart puppy he is only 9 weeks old and already tells us when he needs to go outside, loves his crate (most of the time) and shakes a paw. I hope he turns out to be as mild mannered as a Basset but the protectiveness of a Rotti.

Thanks...yes he is adorable with his scruffy puppy fur.
The vet was in total love with him when I took him in for his shots....and she said I would have to watch his weight because both sides of his lineage can have weight problems.
I was hoping he'd be easy to housebreak and he is proving to be, we have a small yard and one corner of it is designated for the dogs and he has caught on to this very quickly. Here is a better one of him so you can sorta see how stubby his little legs are. He is 9 weeks old 11 1/2 lbs. His body is very long when he stretches out, he reminds me of a dachsund/rottweiler more then anything. We have nicknamed him sausage lol.
