Could be...is Tanner's weight & height comparable to a Norwegian Elkhound? His tail doesn't look as tightly wound, but since he's a mix, no surprise there.
We got an Elkhound when I was 10 because that was the closest breed we could find that looked like the stray we had taken in previously. He (the stray)was also all black except for white patch on his chest and four white paws. Our elkhound was the traditional black & silver coloring. She was a real sweetheart, too.
I suppose a lot of mixed breeds may favor the Elkhound because it's such an ancient breed.
