Help guessing dog breed- coonhound mix?

When we first rescued our dog, we were told he was a coonhound/lab mix, but I donít think that description is accurate- I do not see any lab in him and he is small for a coonhound or lab. He is 8 months old and 30 pounds. He was also ripped away from his mom at a very young age (why we rescued him), so that might play a role in his small size??? He is Black and Tan, but most of his bothers and sisters were white with black spots. His appearance does seem houndy to me, but Iím not sure of the specific breed.

Personality-wise, he is VERY stubborn and does not like to follow commmabds. He loves to sniff outdoors. He has a ton of energy and is very athletic with speed and jump height. He also becomes obsessed with hiding his treats and spends a lot of time hiding and re-hiding them around the house.

I love my baby so much and I am glad we were able to provide a loving home for him after he was taken away from his mom and almost disposed of, but it would be awesome to have a better idea what breeds he is made of to understand him better and be aware of any potential health issues.

Cute little dog! He looks like he could have some hound, possibly even beagle if he stays small, but that color is more what is seen in a German Shepherd. We've seen lots of mixes in our shelter that were around that color and size, and we always have trouble guessing. Usually we say Shepherd mix, but who knows, there are so many breeds out there. : )

Being taken from his mother shouldn't affect his size, though it can cause behavioral problems, so I'm glad he has you there to support him.

Best of luck!

We had a foster puppy that was supposedly Lab/GSD that reminds me of your guy, although she didn't stay that small. He's a cutie, though, for sure!
