What Exactly IS An American Shelter Hound?

We have mutts. Two of them.

Taking them out in public, which we do frequently, is one long game of "Guess That Breed".

Let's start with Maisey.

People think Maisey is a Boxer, a Pointer, a Bull Dog, a Pitbull, a Terrier, a Hound, and all manner of boxy-headed breeds. Truth is, we have no idea. She was found as a stray on the streets of Iowa, dumped in a shelter, then pulled before her "kill date" by a rescue here in the Twin Cities. An awesome father/son combination fostered her for several months before we adopted her last spring.

So we have concluded that Sweet Maisey Potato Head is simply an "American Shelter Hound".
