Name This Pup?

Hope you guys can help me with this one.
This little guy showed up at my doorstep a little while ago. I thought someone was breaking into my house. Jiggling the door knob, leaning on the door. We couldn't see anything so my son got the flashlight and our Retriever and inspected the back yard. He came around the front side gate, found this little guy shivering at the front door. It wanted in. The little Bandit! ;)

I don't know the breed but he is young and teething. We took his pic on my chair. He's about 12' long with a black stripe down his back.
Cute fat feet

I need to contact SPCA's Lost section, but don't know this breed.

Any help you could give would be great. He's a nice little guy and I'm sure wants to be home with his own family. I'll keep him inside for the night and look for his owners in the morning.

Thank you.

Munky

He looks like he has dachshund in him. I hope you find his owners.

On the other hand, the stripe down his back makes me think of these: Rhodesian Ridgeback Puppies - Rhodesian Ridgeback Puppies | Rhodesian Ridgeback Puppy Breeders

I've never seen hound dogs in this neighborhood. But I can still check the lost and found. He's one hyper little guy! Weighed him 2LB. Terror Cutie

Hope we find his owners to. I don't need or want another dog 3 is enough.

I'd love to keep him Babe, But I'd like the owners of this sweet little guy to step up and claim him before I turn him over to the pound.

Unfortunately I can't afford another dog, he's barely weaned from his mother, not fixed and I'm sure hasn't had any shots yet. That costs money.

We have our sons books and tuition to pay for. Just can't do it.

I'm beginning to wonder if he was deliberately dumped at my door. My dogs went wild at the front door. They only do that kind of thing with a reason. I did hear footsteps running on the walkway. My dogs kept telling me something or someone was out there.

He is such a cutie that if you can't find his owners, maybe you could put a "free puppy" ad in the paper. Also some shelters will place puppies with foster families while they look for homes. That would be better than some pounds.

He is so cute, poor baby! Call the ASPCA first if you can't find an owner, he could be fostered and adopted.

I ended up taking a kitty to the no-kill shelter last week when it was so cold. He was a handsome dude, but apparently his owners didn't want him. Collar but no tags.

Better not name him. You name him and he's yours. He's a cutie for sure, I'd take him, but he'd freeze his baby feet off around here.

NOOOOO... I haven't been calling him " Fat Freddie!"

He's fascinated with the doggy door. Smart little guy
