What mix am I?

Hi,

I'm new here and would appreciate some help on determining the breeding of this dog I'm considering for adoption (see pictures)...

He's a "young" male, suspected Lab/Collie mix, weighing about 70lbs. He's described as having 'no hound character traits', which I think is why he was listed as Lab/collie. He's also described as being very smart (ie can open latches and doors) and generally quiet and calm. We're located in the Southern US (read: rural).

Please give me your best guesses!

I'm with Hazel, I thought Whippet also. He sure is good looking. Sounds and looks like a winner. Let us know if you decide to adopt him, and thank you for considering adoption.
