We got Chiyo from a guy who'd gotten her for hunting. He's adamant the mom was a chesapeake but the dad hopped the fence and no one knows what he was.

Thoughts? If she is chessie, I was thinking she's mixed with hound or pointer? She's not very big, only 46 lbs, and she's very lanky and deep chested. I don't believe she's mixed with shepherd. I worked at a vet clinic and they told me rhodesian ridgeback but she's so small for a rhodie and doesn't have that ridge of hair.

Thanks for your time smile
