    DefaultRocco...Coon Hound or Chocolate Lab?

    While picking up some supplies for our 2 dogs at a local pet supply store, my husband came across this little puppy. He said he fell in love with him and the people at the store told him that an older lady brought him in because she couldn't take care of him anymore. They told us he was only 6 weeks old and was a purebred Redbone Coon Hound. I am starting to think that they lied because after we took him home, he heard some bad stuff about that place. We both know that being 6 weeks old and already at someone elses home is NOT GOOD. My husband loved him and we felt bad for him because of the place he was in. We took him to the vet the day after we got him and everything checked out great. But the vet did agree with me that Rocco (his name) is not a purebred Redbone. We could really care less as one of our boys is some sort of mix but we do want to know what breed he is. We're think maybe an American Lab or maybe a hound/lab mix. What do you think?

    Sorry I can't help with the breed. Just wanted to say what a cutie. I can see why your husband fell in love with him.

    He does look like he has some hound, and looks a little bit like my friend´s german pointer. Doesn´t look like a Lab to me.

    He´s very cute!

    What a sweet face! Congrats on the new puppy! As for the mix... I saw some lab, but I am no expert.

    Looks houndy to me, you'll know more about his breeds when he grows up a bit.

    I think he could be a purebred Redbone Coon Hound (or have some lab mixed in). I looked up some pictures and a lot of them had black noses/eye rims, but some had liver nose/eye rims like your boy has. He is a cutie, that is for sure.

    Some people are like slinkies. Not really good for much, but bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.
