Question about dalmatian hound mix

My local Humane Society shelter has a 7 yo dalmatian/hound male that interests me. I've noticed in my research that dalmatians have been crossed with quite a few other breeds but I've not found anything about crossing with a (coon)hound. I was wondering if anyone had had any experience with a cross breed like this and what are their characteristics. I'm concerned that the dog might be a "runner" if allowed off leash (eventually). Thanks for any input.

Do they know for sure it's part dalmatian or are they just guessing? Because a lot of "dalmatian mixes" are actually pointer mixes or something similar.

I would look more into the individual personality, temperament, and behavior of this dog rather than looking into breeds that may or may not be accurate.

I think the shelter got the information from the person turning them (male and female) in to the shelter. (Problem - legal - with the owner, not the dogs.) I have't had a chance to actually get the male out in the greeting pen yet but I've visited it several times inside.

Yeah certainly looks Dalmatian! Well you're probably not going to find information on the mix because it's not a very common one and mixes aren't always consistent- visually and behaviorally, offspring could be a perfect mix of Dalmatian and coonhound, or they could favor one parent or the other in various traits.

I would research both purebreds and expect the dog to have different traits from each parent. And I would also continue to learn about this dog as an individual rather than counting on it to be like either breed!

I appreciate your feedback on my question. Thank you. I'll definitely continue my research. Your comments make a lot of sense.
