This is Ari. We adopted him about 2 weeks ago. He's 36 lbs, about 20 inches from the shoulder, looks lean, but is solid and is about 1 yr old. Opinions have been really mixed as to his breed. I've had all kinds of opinions as to his mixture. Some say there's some plott hound, shepherd, rat terrier, whippet, greyhound, pit bull (I don't really see pit in him and the shelter says it is against the law in my county to adopt out pit bulls and/or pit mixes). I'd be interested to see what you all think.
