Yes he's a VERY VERY sweet boy. Great with my boys who are toddlers and he's equally good with everyone he meets. We are so blessed to have him our lives!!

I think Lab and Greyhound. Has quite a pronounced tuck up and deep chest, and Greyhound ears. Beautiful dog!

Thanks everyone,

Catlover - we thought of greyhound too. This dog is so fast that we always get a crowd at the park when he fetches the ball. It's always the same comment "wow that dog is so fast". kids especially love to stare and watch him run. he's also very agile.

they actually have a company now that will test the DNA of your dog and tell you what breed it is.

We used to get the same reaction when we let our Saluki run---it was a beautiful sight to see his speed.
