Basset hound was my first guess but I don’t think he’s short enough. Then second was blood hound. Then I cheated but I’m not letting the dog out of the bag and spoil the fun……

It’s amazing the variety of dogs. I thought I was quite good at breeds but I do have to look them up on occasions.

It’s a Bracco Italiano or an Italian pointing dog. Isn’t he gorgeous? I recognized him right away from his listing because I was drawn to him.

From dogtime.com

In their native Italy, the Bracco Italiano is known as a hunting dog breed, but they’re also gaining notice as a sweet and affectionate family companion. With their long ears, droopy lips, and soulful expression, the Bracco Italiano has a distinctive look. They’re believed to be an ancient breed, dating back to the fourth or fifth century B.C.

The Bracco Italiano goes by a number of other names, including Italian Pointer, The Italian Pointing Dog, and Bracco. If this dog breed interests you, then you may find these adorable pups in shelters or breed specific rescues. Remember, it’s always better to adopt and not shop!

These smart dogs have endless amounts of energy and do best in homes with yards. The Bracco is also well suited for all households, from single individuals to large families with children. Though they are not watchdog material, they will let you know if they sense a change in their environment. If you want an energetic dog who will keep you on your toes and love you unconditionally, the Bracco Italiano may be the right dog for you!

Not a dog but a horse, we are all animals …

This breed came to my notice about 5 years ago … A horse lover since I could say the word, I had never seen or heard of this one it looks like something from legends or folklore … :racehorse:

Google knows everything of course :rofl:

Yes, that’s it! I had a sit in Toronto a couple of years ago with a 6 month old Lagotto Romagnolo, had never heard of the breed before but fell madly in love with this puppy. Her name was Skittles and she was the sweetest little thing!
