Autumn stared at this guy’s pictures for a good 30 or 40 seconds, and then went and got her reference book. And then spent another thirty seconds poking through it. Finally, she shrugged in frustration. ‘Let’s say he’s a small Munsterlander mix,’ she said.
I said “Um… he’s not very small. And I’ve never heard of a Munsterlander. Is that really what you think he is?”
She said, “Small Munsterlander is a breed. They’re not that small. And no, he’s probably not. But they’re great dogs, and really rare, and it’d be cool if he was one. And that’s what he looks most like.”
So, ‘small Munsterlander mix’ he is, unless someone else has a better idea. In any case, he’s a magnificent dog. Second picture after the break.
She’s not crazy! That looks exactly like a Münsterlander. I have a mutt who is 1/4 Small Münsterlander (as per the Wisdom Panel).
Awesome. I have since (wow… it’s been almost exactly a year since this post) met two Small Münsterlanders, and learned that they aren’t very small. We even had one on here, on August 17th, 2010.
I’ve yet to meet a single Large Münsterlander, though.
