We adopted Eva about six months ago and she is the love of our life. We've been trying to figure out what she might be, because people are always asking. The older she's gotten, the more like a ridgeback she looks...but at first we were thrown off by her amber eyes, purplish nose and lack of a ridge. Apparently ridgebacks can have all those traits though. Do you think she could be all or part livernose ridgeback? She's about 60 pounds at a year and 3 months. She's got a white patch on the chest, butt swirls, a long trail and very soft fur. Thanks for your thoughts!
