Identify my Dogs, Closely resemble Transylvania Hounds

Need to know if anyone has a way to identify what breed my dogs are. I have looked at several different breeds to include doberman, rotweiler, Black and Tan Coon Hounds and Transylvania Hounds, They most closely resemble the Transylvania Hound more than any of the others. Some of the Pictures of the Transylvania Hounds are nearly Identical. Can anyone help me with this?

They're mixed breeds, or mutts. Many people get in a rush to "identify" their dog's breed, and end up on extremely rare breeds, like the Transylvanian Hound, based purely on appearance. Sorry to disappoint, but these rare breeds are very, very unlikely to end up in shelters or as strays. The resemblance is usually coincidence.

You have to look at what breeds/mixes are common in your area, and keep in mind, mixed breeds often don't closely resemble any of their parent breeds as the genes get switched around and re-combine to make new traits.

You're probably on the right track with Dobe and Rott- probably some other breeds in the mix too.

Dobermans, Rottweilers, Black and Tan Coonhounds, German Pinschers, Australian Kelpies, Hovawarts, English Shepherds, Beaucerons, Gordon Setters, Hellenic Hounds, Polish Hunting Dogs. All of these breeds of dogs resemble the Transylvania Hound in some ways.
