Possible breed for Montana? :)

I was looking at a few of the local rescues the other day and came across a 6 month old puppy. He looked a awful lot like Montana (maybe related?), and it was also found as a stray at 3 months old, then spent 3 months in the shelter and was pulled by a rescue so he wouldn't be put down. They said they thought he was a Mountain Cur. I have never even heard of that before, so I googled it and found some pics that look like our little boy! They come in several colors, including brindle with black (and that particular color often has a white patch under the chin, on the chest and white on the paws, which Montana has all of those). It doesn't really matter what he is, but it would be fun to know, and also good for any genetic issues that may arise. Lord knows we have had our fair share with both Thorin and Nookie. Anyway, what do you guys think?

Certainly looks possible :) Whatever he is Montana is one very adorable & squishable puppy :cloud9:

Growler, he is such a sweet baby. He's really come out of his shell. He's such a little kissie bug too :lovestruck: :cloud9:

Though I'm certain he is going to be a very protective boy, very similar in personality to our Thorin. :)

It does look like at least a partial match with the Mountain Cur. Of course, we'll need lots and lots of pics while he's growing up...just to make sure. :o (You know, fair warning and all... :D)

It does look like a close match (I've never heard of it either), but Montana looks more fluffy, is that just puppyfur maybe? So good that he's relaxed with you guys. How could he not come out of his shell though.
