Hi everyone, my name is Rachel and my dogs' name is Zero. (she's a girl by the way!)
We've already made our introductions in the correct forum, so I'll go ahead and share some of my best pictures of her!

What do you think that she is mixed with? I think that it has to be a hound???

I would not say that she is mixed with a traditional 'hound' at all, although many seem to think she may possibly be a GSD crossed w/ Pharaoh Hound. For those of you that do not know about Pharaoh Hounds, here's one:


(although I have never seen a dog of this breed in the small town we live. they are rare.)

I have done lots of research and have many ideas what she may mixed with, and although Pharaoh Hounds are rare I know that there are some in a city about an hour away, so there could be more closer. I have also found this dog on dogster, a GSD/Pharaoh Hound cross, almost a spitting image of Zero:


My best guess is possibly labrador retreiver/GSD/and possibly something else since those are the most common breeds where I live, but her vet thinks she may be a hybrid- a GSD mixed with something else and maybe 20% coyote in there or something. She howls at night like one, so who knows!

I found her as a stray three years ago. She has a unique look with the wonderful disposition and loyalty of a GSD :]

That last photo looks almost like an amazing painting. The colors are phenominal. As an artist, I can truly appreciate how good all those photos look! Wow.

I actually was thinking of the Pharaoh hound when I said this. It doesn't matter to me. What does she act like a GSD or more hound?

She looks very much like she has Pharoah Hound in her ... they're great dogs, we used to have a lovely lady named Tadu. :-) At the recent big dog show here in Denver, there were a couple of mixed-breeds rescued from some nutcase up in the mountains who was cross-breeding Pharoah Hounds with GSD and also with Husky. This old guy thought he was breeding a superior sled dog, although where he came up with the mix is a mystery. Anyway, he was leaving these short-haired mixes out in the weather and somebody finally noticed and reported him, thank God. Just the sweetest dogs. Should be some sort of litmus test people have to take before allowed to keep dogs ... spit on the litmus paper and, depending what color it turns, they get the dog. Or the door.

Zero does not act like a hound at all! She has the great temperament of GSD even down to closely bonding one person as her 'master' (which is me..it frustrates people when she doesn't behave as well and gets upset when I'm not around :p ) she's very smart- a fast learner, confident, curious, and very friendly.

Well, she's quite handsome. Very regal, very intelligent-looking. Great sounding dog, IMO!

Thank you Smile
She's a great dog! I had one dog before her who has since passed away, and my bond with Zero is way beyond the other dog I had. I love how GSDs want to be with you and a part of your life and she certainly has that trait. My dog I had before was a beagle mix, wouldn't even really pay attention to me unless I had food Wink but she was still a sweetie. You just don't have that certain 'bond' with every dog you come across, you know?

She is a pretty dog. flower
My dad doesn't like that only bonding with one or two people things in GSDs. Cookie ignores him unless he has food or if he calls her. Laughing

haha yeah. My parent's don't like that Zero won't listen to them, but as soon as I walk in the room she immediately behaves. Growing up with a dog that completely ignored everyone unless she wanted something, I love this GSD trait in Zero, it's very different for me to have a dog that wants to be with me and I love our bond. But many people do not like it. :p haha

I like the that trait too. Cookie only has two special humans:
Me and my grandma. She's gotten farther and farther from my grandma ever since I started caring for her though.
My dogs (Cooie, the GSD and the Gray Dawntreader the Sheltie mix) mope around when I go somewhere, according to my dad.

I don't mind that trait x) Only Bash and Luna have the bond with me, although I love them all.
