He is adorable I love his scruffy fur and that cute face-- I like the pic with his brother. I love the pic of him looking out the window an he looks so wise in the next to the last pic. I just adore his ears!

Thank you for rescuing this handsome, adorable boy! His previous owner's loss is your gain. He looks like the soul of contentment in his new home.

What an adorable guy. The picture of him where he is staring right into the camera (#5) just melts my heart. I am so glad you rescued this guy. I bet he is too! And what a beautiful sister he has!!

Sandi--wise, eh? He's got you fooled! ;) He's a total goofball. Seriously, we call him The Noodle because when you pet him, he melts into a wet noodle beside you, contorting his body into all sorts of crazy positions just to get closer. He's a silly, playful mess. Thank you, though! :D FireHorse, we could't agree more--someone's ridiculous choice to let this dog go is definitely our good fortune! Thanks for your nice comments.

Those ears are too cute --- one sticks up and the other stays down!

aww, he's adorable!!!

What a delightful beastie. I had one just like him as a kid. Poodle/Wolfhound. We called him the lap moose-loved sitting on your lap when you tried to dtive and the beard-we would find all sorts of things, once we found three large ants. Enjoy the great noodle! big thump on the rump for Liam.

Liam is a DEAR. I love these dogs and they do wrap you around their heartstrings.

You are PERFECT! Seriously, this is my favorite doggie look: shaggy, sweet, big-nosed, and muppet-like. Gah!!!

May 19, 2007 sylvanbliss
I love Julia's comments 100% of the time. Spot on about Liam being muppet-like! Can't you hear his muppet voice in your imagination?

In addition, discribing Sierra as being a "somewhat prickly alpha girl" made me laugh right out loud. We have one of those too...someone has to be the boss of all things! They look to be great pals and content with the pack order. (mark of a true gentleman)

Here's to big, goofy, rescued, mystery bred dogs! Hip hip HOORAY! Lovin' your scruffiness, Liam! Nice to meet you, have a wonderful life!

Love the face in the sixth pic. I, too adopted a "wolfhound mix" from the local shelter. He had been abandoned, picked up, kept for a couple of weeks, then turned over to the shelter because he was too big. He was the best dog I've ever had, lovable like Liam. Looked like him, only black with long droopy ears. Thanks for sharing. Have fun.

so cute! mutts are as good as purebreeds! i think anyway

have fun with him!

He looks a lot like a friend's dog... they don't know what breed he is either, so they just call him a Fredrick's Terrier since he was abandoned outside a Fred Meyer grocery store. (What's wrong with people, huh?)

What a lovebug!!! I want one!!! :)

Whoever turns in a dog for "getting too big" should be FOREVER banned from ever getting another one. Luckily your story has a happy ending for you and your most adorable terrier-face Liam. He says he's glad you brush out the whiskers every night because it shows him now much you love him. But grrrr to those mean people....I can't get over it.

Beautiful noble dog. Cute ears too.

Bless you for saving him.
May 24, 2007 anon
there really is nothing better than a big, moppy, scruffy dog! I just love Liam and I can only imagine how much you must as well. Who could give him up?! You are wonderful people for literally saving his life... bless you!

Your Liam looks like so much fun! I bet he and my Liam would be great friends.

How can one just "drop of a dog at a kill shelter for getting too big"??? I don't understand. Your dog(s) looks absolutely stunning and like a lot of fun. Liam is such a cute pal.

Congratulations :-)

Liam is a handsome boy. Thank you for resucuing him and giving him a loving, forever home. Hugs and kisses.

I have a dog identical to Liam except that her ears do not stand up. We have been told as well that she could be a Wheaton/Irish wolfhound mix. We adopted her 2 years ago and she is the sweetest thing ever. No barking, loves dogs and people and is quiet at home. We are blessed.

Hi! Liam is beautiful... my husband and I recently rescued a dog who looks just like him... he even has the one ear up/one down thing... and he was put in the kill shelter for the same reason. So sad. Thank goodness there are people like us out there to rescue these poor, gentle souls!
So I'm not sure that you are still checking this post, but if you are, do you know what he is mixed with? My Gilligan (named due to his goofy personality!) looks just like Liam and I have been told he may be a Wheaten Terrier/Irish Wolfhound mix. We love him no matter, what of course, but we'd love to know!!
Thank you,

Liam looks just like my dog Max!!! If you are looking for a shelter dog, PLEASE CONSIDER ADOPTING AN OLDER DOG!! A month ago, I adopted "Max the Bear" a 10.5 year old, Irish Wolfhound Mix. Max came to us much the same way Liam found his home. Max's family were moving and couldn't or wouldn't bring him.. So, they left him first with a family member who, after a few months, turned him over to the shelter. Imagine losing your family and put in "jail" at age 10!! Shame on those folks, who left this wonderful senior dog. They were obviously thinking of themselves and not the welfare of this goofy, fuzzy, wonderful dog. He was miserable in the shelter and was isolated because he cried and barked all the time. He probably wondered what he did wrong to land up in such a terrible circumstance! Most will not consider adopting a senior dog, so most end up being put down. Lucky for Max, I wanted an older dog. I looked beyond the isolation room and constant barking and decided to spend a day with him to see what he was REALLY about. I am glad I did! He is a well behaved, gentle giant. I am proud to have given an otherwise unadoptable dog a happy life for however many years he has left.

Congrats on such a great dog! My beagle is an "alpha" type, but she loves her adopted stray sister! I know that's a good feeling when you've found a freind they can enjoy and play with. Liam is sooo cute. His ears crack me up. Thanks for the smiles!
Mar 26, 2008 mutts&hounds2
to Cabot Witch: That just breaks my heart!! Atleast Max can live out his days well loved :) Good for you.

My dog Sparky looks just like your dog! Liam's story sounds exactly like Sparky's. He was given up because they thought he would be too big. The shelter said he was and Irish Wolfhound/Terrier mix. Sparky is 11 now and going strong. If you wanna see what he looked like as a puppy just do a Google image search for Doggone Chicago. Sparky is on the cover of the second edition of the book. Thanks for making my day!

We lost our beloved Roscoe last fall. A purebred Great Pyrenees we adopted from the local animal shelter at four months. He too was turned in because he was getting too big.'d think the "Great" in his name would've been a clue.

My parents adopted one that looks just like this about 5 months ago! We found him in a parking lot...He is now about 8 months old and amazing. He is a beautiful cuddly "little" guy! Sweet as can be.. His name is Jazz
