Teddy is my baby and he has lived in my home for nearly as long as I have been writing Congress Heights on the Rise but I would give (almost) anything to know what the heck he is.  My vet, my friends, and even the police (who have inquired if he is a wild animal) are stumped.

I am no closer to answering, "What kind of dog is that?"

Hopefully one of my readers (or a dog expert) can give me a clue. Teddy is mid-size (25 pounds) and sheds like the dickens.

P.S. I fostered Teddy with a wonderful organization called Homeward Trails, clearly I am a foster failure since he is still living with me. LOL! If you can, consider becoming a foster mommy or daddy too.  HT covers the medical care of you little guy until they find their forever home. :)

Showing off his new haircut -- peep the tail!

Teddy looks a lot like my Frankie (a WARL adoption!) I have been told she is a chihuahua/Jack Russell Terrier mix. She has the chihuahua ears and head, but jack russell short legs. its the furry long tail I havent been able to explain. Just call him a Pound Puppy if anyone asks!

Thank you for posting the link to the place where you got Teddy - we've been looking for a new addition to the fan and we're definitely going to check them out.

That is a toss up there. Looking at the body it could be mixed with dachshund or something. But I know for sure it is a Feist.
