Guess That Mutt – Barney!

Today’s “Guess That Mutt” submission is a cute guy named Barney. His owner Emma K. recently adopted him from an SPCA.

She sent me some pics of Barney, and she’s hoping you could take a guess at Barney’s breeds. 

What kind of dog is this?

What’s your guess?

My guess is beagle/Lab/English pointer (but what do I know?).

The shelter considered him a hound mix, and Emma’s best guess is American foxhound/harrier.

She said Barney is about 2 years old and 54 pounds.

Please leave your best guess in the comments. Barney says thank you! 

*You can submit your dog’s photos to for the next Guess That Mutt post.

And take a look at last week’s mutt, Maddie, available for adoption in Santa Barbara, Calif.
