Default Beagle/Pointer mix?? We have no idea

Hey everyone. In november my boyfriend adopted a dog from an animal rescue. We were told that by looking at his teeth they could tell he was ALMOST a year old (i dont know how accurate they can be if they dont know where he came from). We named him Artie.
Ever since we got him we've been trying to determine his breed and have come up with a Beagle/Pointer mix, but we are also completely clueless I google imaged it and there are pics that look JUST like him but it seems all the dogs in the pictures have Beagle sized legs. Artie's legs are somewhere in between the size of a Beagle and a Pointer.
His snout looks like a beagle though. Here are some pictures!
I know there are some of you out there that are experts and I would loooove some other point of views.

Oh yeah, and in the pictures where he is walking with Tessa, keep in mind Tessa is a very small spoo!!

He looks like a black and white version of my terrier mix! Crazy! We think she is a jrt/wgippet mix, but it is really up in the air. She looks like so many breeds.

I am planning on doing a doggy dna test on her, just so I can know what breeds my sweet girl is.

Artie looks like a sweet boy! How tall is he/what does he weigh?

My best guess is German shorthaired Pointer/Lab. He is a cutie though and he and the Poo look like good buddies.

When we got Artie he was REALLY skinny, just pure skin and bones.
Now he is very muscular, especially in his front legs and chest.
He is about 21 inches and 42 pounds.
He has so much power when he runs, he is like a bullet.
Are the DNA tests expensive? Are they accurate?

Here's a couple of videos of Artie:

Plumcrazy had one of her rescues done. She could tell you the price and accuracy. I stll say GSHP, but his ears look a bit Whippetish in the videos. Both Labs and GSHP's have long ears that lay flat against the head so those ears are throwing me off a bit. In your original photos, 3 of 6 he definately looks like he has Lab in him and the ears look right there for what I think. But in the videos his ears doa funny little turn that Whippets do.

we never considered whippet, im going to check them out right now! They're pretty large, arent they? or are they Artie sized greyhounds? lol

But YES, the ears are what have been throwing us off this entire time!

We were watching Dogs 101 on animal planet a couple of months ago and it was about a german shorthaired pointer, the personality description and a couple of the dogs they showed were VERY similar to artie. So I (i dont think other people agreed with me) stood by the fact that he must be part GSHP, just like you said Arreau. He is quite a high jumper and a far far leaper!

Whippets are about 20" at the shoulder and about 28 pounds, soo with GSHP, that would work.

I had my shelter mix, Hannah-Banana, DNA tested in January of 2008. My vet charged me $119 (plus $7.30 postage & handling) to draw the blood, send it to Mars, and get the results back. The Mars Wisdom Panel identified 6 different breeds in Hannah plus some DNA markers too faint to identify. Hannah is Boxer, Cocker Spaniel, Great Pyrenees, Labrador Retriever, Miniature Poodle, and Vizsla! She's approximately 17" and 45 lbs. I'm so glad I had it done and it was worth it to me at the time... I believe there are several other options available now, including a cheek swab! When I did it in 2008, there weren't any other possibilities available... Here's Hannah!

Looks border collie-ish x pitty mix to me.

The DNA test can pull DNA from WAY back to when the breeds were evolving, so I would not put TO much stock in their complete validity. As we all know, all our breeds are made up of many different breeds, so these DNA test are pulling from all the breeds that went into making up each specific breed. It's funny because anyone I've ever heard having one done, said their dog was identified to have 6 different breeds in them.

Just today, I heard of a dog that was DNA tested and it had Rhod. Ridgeback, Pug, min pin, boxer, lab and something else. I've also heard of dogs that were DNA'ed and when at least the bitch or sire was a KNOWN purebred and that breed didnt' even show up in the profile. So, just beware, they can sometimes be misleading (not saying always).

The dog genome project is still a work in progress http://www.broadinstitute.org/mammals/dog
