A rescue has this dog listed as a “Plott Hound Mix”. To my admittedly untrained eye, it looks like a brindle pit bull to me. Also, from what I understand, plott hounds are somewhat rare, especially to the Chicago area in which I live.

I am looking to adopt a dog and I have nothing against pitties, but I am currently renting a house and the owner said no dice on pitbulls.

looks like a pit bull mix to me. If you think it looks like a pit bull it would probably be hard to convince the landlord otherwise if he feels that strongly.

i've never seen a plott hound in person but looks like it could be a plott mix to me.. unfortunately most brindle dogs get mistaken for pitbulls (unfortunately meaning, unfortunately peoples general assumptions of pitbulls is so negative and its unfortunate that most brindle dogs get lumped into the same category and are treated with the same resentment) its up to your landlord on whether or not he thinks its a pitbull mix or not.. just because of how most people feel about pitbulls and certain breed specific legislation laws i wouldnt call him a pitbull if you do adopt him.. only a dna test could prove if he is plott hound or not and it takes a few weeks to get results..

Does look like a Pit mix wouldn't risk it with your landlord.

The last Pit I had shipped to me (Denver airport) was shipped as a Plott Hound.

She's cute....doubt you'd be able to tell for sure till she got older, Plotts are VERY hound-like in build, which I have to admit I'm not seeing in her, but that could just be her age.

The head shape is nothing hound-like at all. She does look to be a PB to me. Pretty girl.

To get PBs adopted in California, they will call them almost anything. In nothern Cal., they call them 'St. Francis Terriers'.

We had two Plott hounds stay with us for a week...waiting for their ride to NC.

They looked just like this dog.

Regardless of what her actual breed is (wouldn't know for sure without a DNA test), if you like her/him and think the dog in general would be a good fit for your life any vet would easily register the dog as a plott hound mix, especially if that's what the rescue listed the dog as. That way, regardless of what your landlord thinks on the first glance, you have paper proof from a vet saying the dog isn't a pitt for housing purposes. My friend recently rescued a "boxer mix" (90% positive the dog is a pit bull cross) whose vet put him down as a boxer mix so in the future she wouldn't have problems in no pitbull housing situations, etc.

I found a puppy few days old,he looks exactly like this one.He is now 7 month old.He is well socialised,love dogs and love our older dog standard Schnauzer.
I think he is taller then pits,now he have around 60 cm and 22-24 kg.i think pits are smaller and not so thin.Also he is quickest dog in our park.
Can be mix of Pero de Presa Canario,mix of Plott Hound or mix of pit-stafford but he drools lot and pits don't drool ?!

Doesn't matter if you can get a vet to register it as a chihuahua. If the landlord has any language in the lease to deny it for any reason, then I wouldn't risk it.




I'd also move though!

"Pit Bull" is kind of a catch all term. It's honestly a very vague term that could encapsulate everything from an AKC champion American Staffordshire Terrier to street dog with the physical features of one that includes a background of American Staffy, Cane Corso, Lab, Rottweiler, American Bulldog, and hound. Because of this "Pit Bulls" vary greatly in size, shape and appearance. Plenty of them can and will drool. I honestly do think your dog could have Plott Hound, and I think that generic "Pit" mix is very possible in there too due to the ears and shape of his head and face. However, I highly doubt there's any Presa Canario in that mix. They're not common at all, and since Presas are the size of Buicks he would likely be bigger if he had that in him.
