Iko is one of those dogs that everyone offers a friendly opinion on his breed. We’ve heard he is (for sure) a border collie, pointer, hound, whippet, and dalmatian. To us, he’s just a ‘mystery mix’ that we couldn’t imagine life without! “
If you are looking for a new family member, I hope you’ll consider adopting one! If you know of a great rescue organization, please include in the comments below!

Aw yay!! Thanks for the feature! Such a sweet pup
The photos are so cute!!! And Iko is a proper poser! I believe that all animals are beautiful, no matter what breed (or mix) they are.
I am in complete agreement with you!

I can’t stop admiring those beautiful pictures. The dog seems to be such a great addition to your family.
These pictures are absolutely beautiful! And so is that pup
Iko is such a beautiful dog! I grew up with a lab mix, so those looks bring back some very fond memories. The eyes are so familiar. Iko’s eyes look like they have quite the story to tell.
He does have very soulful (and beautiful) eyes!
Nice! I only experienced dog when I was a kid since then I haven’t being around any…
What a beautiful dog! I had a mix dog once! She was a German Shephard, Lab, and Pit Bull mix!
GiGi Eats says
Whatever he is, he’s definitely a cutie!
Oh I just love those photos. We have a rescue pup, too, and we aren’t sure what breed she is. Other than being the best dog in the world, of course.
Of course! 🙂

Alli Smith says
Great photos! I think Iko is so adorable! I love watching a mystery mix mature and trying to guess what he may be mixed with. So cute!
I love this dog! I am glad the dog survived from being a runt of the litter. This family truly loves this dog and you can tell by just looking at their faces.
Sarah Bailey says
Oh my goodness what a pup! She has the happiest and lovely face! I just want to give her a hug!
That pic of the little girl with the puppy should be entered into photo contests it is brilliant! Absolutely gorgeous shot. I like the others as well but that one!
Terri Steffes says
What impressed me the most is how much love is in that family. It brought tears to my eyes. Lucky dog!
Oh my goodness, that is one adorable dog! Also the family seems wonderful too! I have a rescue dog and he is a lab/hound/whatever else mix of dog and we adore him just the way he is!

I’m smiling from ear to ear just enjoying these precious pics of Iko! I also love his mantra: play hard, snuggle hard!
Tami Qualls says
Awe, this has inspired me to take photos with my pets. I only wish I would’ve taken one with my devoted chihuahua that passed in April.
I’m so sorry for the loss of your chihuahua. I hope you get lots of photos of your other pets.
