    Note to mods - I had to approve this one - so I could see it when I wasn't logged in (swapped to a different browser program).
    I think it has something to do with the photo links.

    So now to guess the breed.

    Ok - greyhound or whippet something - would explain the size and brindling. Plus fence jumping bitsa. Could also be a brindle SBT x something tall and skinnier like a pointer or ridge back. Or great dane or boxer (brindle) x beagle (ears).

    Tail could have been as a result of an accident that required amputation. Or there are nasty stupid people who try to do it themselves. Or the fence jumping bitsa could have been a stumpy tailed cattle dog - though given the shape of it - I think this unlikely. There are a few dog breeds that have naturally stumpy tails (some of a litter or all) but they don't look like that.

    Hopefully she's a great dog and has a long happy life with you.

    I'm going with some sort of pointer(probably crossed).

    At the end of the day you're never going to know what breed it is unless you can find the parents and they're pedigreed. I reckon stop worrying and just love what you have

    I see great Dane, pointer and possibly ridgeback. Not all ridgeback crosses have the ridge.

    She looks like a dog that was bred for hunting. I had a dog that had vaguely similar characteristics and someone once claimed that she was a typical 'kangaroo dog'. Which I suppose is the Australian version of the lurcher.

    Thanks! Beloz and all other friends for replying.I think I should try find her mother and father to know the breed she is.

    It would be interesting to know what kind of parent dogs she had.

    I think you have a good chance of finding the mother and she might be a pure bred or obviously something, but if the father was a fence jumping cross breed mix of a mix (aka bitsa), there's not going to be many clues there. Or too many clues.

    And Beloz is right, even some ridgeback puppies are born without ridges. That's usually considered a breed fault and these days those puppies get desexed before they're rehomed.
