Ummm, what is he?

Yesterday my dad's girlfriend found this big guy running around the highway in freezing tempratures so she picked him up. He is teh sweetest guy and he knows all his basic commands.
I love dogs and I know most breeds of them, but I just want other opinions on what breed you think he is.
I think he is a Labrador X Bloodhound (Not sure on the BH) and I think he is in the 4-7 year age range.

What do you think?

All I can see from the pictures is that he has Lab in him somewhere. Good luck finding his owners : ) My in laws just had a Great Dane show up on their doorsteps last night.

I can see the Lab but on the first pic I could see Golden Retriever x.

Eagles may soar but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

definitely looks Lab to me.

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Poor animal, and no idea where he might have come from?? Lucky she did pick him up. Poor thing might have not made it.

Did you go to the shelter yet to see if he has a chip?
Hope you can find the owner soon :)

I haven't taken him to the shelter yet, I will tell my dad to!
There is another picture that shows his "saddle marks" and his back end (To me) looks a lot like a bloodhound, but I don't know! Lol
He def. Isn't a pure lab though... Hel ooks like he has something else in there...
But my dad said if his owners don't show up, he has a home here!!!!

Yeah, I was going with pure lab in the first pix, but there is definitely something in there! Could be shepherd (saddle mark)...depends on if there are BH in your area...they aren't at all common here, so I wouldn't guess that, but maybe there?
Do take him to the vets or to the shelter to have them see if he has a chip. Call all the animal services people (SPCA, pound,vets, feed stores) and let them know where he is in case someone is looking for him!

It's the little things that drive me wild...

Yep, I was also thinking GS but his hair is not as long as most GS/Lab crosses, but it is def. An option!
We have called teh Police departments/vets in the area we found him/and the shelter.
Still no calls and it has been 24 hours....
We also need a name because we have been calling him puppy. (And Charlie) but I don't know what to call him until his owner gets to us.
