Truman went to the dog park and saw a Blue Lacy there. He said that the dog looked a lot like Charis - only silver instead of sable. Blue Lacy's are a Texas bred working dog, ranging from 30-50 lbs (she's 36 lbs). They are definitely her size and temperament. Who knows! Maybe we have a little Texas Lacy!
Below are some pictures of a Blue Lacy. Charis has a very similar face shape, body shape, and wrinkled smile. She does not have their ears at all though.
