Cool Breed guessing game

I thought it's time to do the 'name that breed' game with MooShu. She doesn't get to meet all that many people, but everyone who meets her sees different breeds. We've had people ask what kind of dog she is, and we just say "brown."

She weighs approx. 50lbs and has very dainty bone structure, at least compared with the large breed dogs I'm used to. She's the silliest dog I've ever lived with, has a broad vocabulary of grunts and other sounds, and fluctuates between bursts of hyperactivity and total couch potato-ness. She has a phenominal sense of smell and she freezes in a kind of a pointer stance when something catches her attention. She's an extremely timid dog but loves the attention she gets when she gets to meet someone new.

Had to sneak these next few through the window...she's still camera-shy (flash=lightning storms) but we're working on that.

We've had her for 4 years now, so the camera desensitization process is going a little slowly

I see Weimaraner for sure. First breed I thought of. But she looks a little less streamlined and more brown than grey, so maybe some lab too?
