Took a couple hour drive to check out a litter Sunday afternoon and put a little money down on this pretty girl- chit kicker. Adventures to come. Guesses on breed...winner gets a scratch 'N sniff sticker.
May take two pups when I go get her in a couple weeks.
I don't really have a guess on the breed, but I will say that, That is exactly what the original "Lesser St. John's" or what we now know as the Labrador Retriever, originally looked like. They usually had those white toe tips and the white chest stripe was common. There are just a few pictures of them in existence. I doubt that's what you've got, but I just thought I'd throw that out there.
Man, if all we had to go on was that 1st pic, I'da guessed a Stephens mt. cur too. But the next pic looks like a barrel o' Plott hound puppies to me! And I do believe the Plott is one of the Carolina's state dog?
