What am I?

Mommy thinks I might be part Redbone Coonhound.

The shelter said I was a Corgi/Hound mix.

Strangers have suggested: Boxer, German Shepherd, Pit Bull.

I track everything, hear everything, love everybody (except the mailman), weigh about 41 lbs, am about 23 inches long at 16 months old.

You can't see it in my pictures, but I have a dark band of fur along my back and white patches on my chin, chest, and front; big feet, long tail, and a deep bark that scares unsuspecting neighbors.

They want to figure out what I am to better go through obedience training, and be ready for any medical issues I might be prone to when I get old. And to answer the inevitable question: "He's such a handsome boy, what is he?" without looking silly.
