Hi everyone. I'm Courtney. I have had Carter 11 months to the day and I adopted him from the SPCA. He is about 16 months old and is close to 90 pounds. The SPCA said he was a lab/pit mix but I have heard people say he looks like so many different breeds I wanted to get some more opinions. I think the brindle coloring is why some assume pit, but I am not sure. He is my first dog and he's the love of my life! I am not sure how to attach pictures of him, but when I figure it out I will post pictures of him.

I could see pure Plott Hound. Especially likely if he was pulled from a shelter/animal control down south.
IMO like many of the hound breeds common in the south, looks vary a little more than your "average" purebred dog since working ability is more prized.

I see so many working/sporting breed dogs end up in shelters down here because they don't work out and are just turned loose.

I also agree with Plott.

I fifth (sixth?) plott hound. You're in Delaware, so a lot of the local shelter/rescue dogs are brought up from the South, and there are a lot of breeds common to the South that you just don't see in the North otherwise, including the plott hounds.

I see lab/hound or maybe some kind of cur. I could see plott mix but other than the brindling he doesn't look like a plott much to me. The plotts we've had in the extended family (I have a lot of relatives that hunt) are a lot more houndy looking especially the head. 90 lbs is also pretty far outside the normal weight for a plott too.

Oh I could only see the first picture. I see them all now, and agree with you. Ears are fairly short, and I thought the plotts were around 60 lbs or less. Also some here are solid black, not always brindle.

He's big for a pure plott hound but I'd believe plott mix for sure. I think the standard is about 60 for females and about 70 for males. My neighbor has what he says is a pure plott hound and he's about 70 pounds. I think Jubel is a plott mix but with a lot of mix in there haha, he's about 50 pounds.

40-60 lbs according to the breed standard. My uncle's female plott is really small- probably around 45 lbs. I do agree that the puppy pic looked somewhat plott like but the others really don't to me.
