    Hello everyone!!
    I recently acquired this vintage bronze dog sculpture. I'm told that this is French, but not completely convinced as it's unmarked. It's nicely detailed and measures 7 3/4" tall, 6" front to back and weighs approximately 3.5lbs.
    This was sold to me as a "Whippet" or "Greyhound", but I've never known a Whippet or Greyhound to have a bobtail. I'm curious to see what your responses are as to what breed this little bronze sculpture is. I'm thinking Jack Russell Terrier.

    Thanks for stopping in for a look!!
    Scott

      He's beautiful Scott, very nice pose. I immediately thought greyhound from the head, but you're right about the short tail - could be the artist imagined him sitting on most of his tail (just a thought)

      This one is paying attention - the look on his face is one of "What you say?" I love this one, so detailed almost real.

      So cute!
      It has the look of Nipper, the Jack Russell of Pathé Marconi advertisement, but taller and... More fat! ;-))

      Kyra,
      Thanks very much! He sure does resemble Nipper, the Jack Russell terrier. I've always thought of this one as a Jack Russell, but it seems that most folks think of this one as a Whippet or Greyhound. I'm still thinking Jack Russell.

      If you look at pictures of Whippets, they, most of the time, have their tails tucked in. Funny dogs, but very lean, as this one shows. Then again, the ears on this one, are totally Jack Russel. I’m voting Whippet. He’s a beautiful sleek statue Scott, no matter what the breed is!

      Thanks Eileen!! You're right, no matter the breed, he's a beauty!
