Harrier or Beagle?

Last evening "in the big city neighborhood" my hub and Flip talked with a neighbor and his white dog. The other dog owner said that Flip was too big to be a beagle and must be another breed, but he could not remember the name. When I heard that, I googled "big beagle" and came up with "harrier."

We found lots of photos of beautiful dogs like our Flip, but we are still not sure. Flip is 1/2 to 1 inch shorter than a harrier, and his hair is silky smooth, not rough. As for the rest, he looks like a harrier. Since harriers are reasonably rare, that is the reason our vet did not recognize him as a harrier. According to what I read, most vets rarely see a harrier.

Whatever he is, Flip keeps us busy.
