Hey all,

I was wondering what everyone thought about Cooper. I rescued him from the pound in July of 2010 when he was 6 months. After doing research I have decided that he is at least half Vizsla. He has the look I think minus the completely amber eyes and he definitely has the temperament and mannerisms. In these pictures he is a year old. Thanks...

Looks very much like a Rhodesian Ridgeback without a ridge to me! I grew up with a Rhodesian and your pup is VERY similar! The black nose really gives it away that he isnt a full Vizsla and prob a rhodesian. His head shape, nose and color are the exact same as a ridgeback. Many ridgebacks, about 1 per litter, are born without a ridge on their back and the breeders put them down because it doesnt meet breed standards (quite sad). He could easily be a mix of a vizsla and ridgeback too. Thats just my opinion though! :)

Just my opinion... I think he looks predominantly Vizsla, but with a little something else mixed in. Cooper reminds me of my last dog. After a long and happy life, she went to meet her Maker in the Fall of 2009. Anyway, I think Cooper is mostly Vizsla, but not 100%. The temperament being "spot on" is a big clue. The unique Vizsla personality is passed on through the genes, just as appearance is.
p.s. Cooper is a cutie pie!

Cooper looks like he has Ridgeback in him to me too. That or some Lab maybe? The nose and eyes are darker than a V, and his body is not as "cut" (at least from what I can see). As the previous post said, I believe mannerisms are a big clue to what you may have. Regardless, Cooper is very handsome! 1/2 V with anything I can think of that Cooper resembles is a very appealing package! What a wonderful friend you have found :)


I didn't see the 2nd pic the 1st time around which shows a bit more V in his body cut.

I have to disagree, Cooper looks very much like the winning vizsla from the show I was at last weekend. While his nose is decidedly darker, it is not black. I can't tell from the angle what his coat is like...looks like either he is a bit heavy or his coat is thick.

Honestly, doesn't matter one way or the other, you love him and he loves you and that is ALL that matters.

Pretty boy.

justinmel17, thank you for your kind words! I wish I had a decent photo of her to post, but unfortunately, I lost them when I had my old computer recycled. Didn't plan ahead. She was a great dog, and I still miss her. She looked a lot like Cooper (above). He is a very handsome boy!
