Turns out I'm better at identifying dog breeds than I thought.
This, I believe is an Irish Wolfhound.
It might be worth noting that some of these were sold to me as 30mm. I thought there wouldn't be much of difference but I was wrong. I had to clip bases back to the minimum to get these to fit on 25mm bases. Even so this one seemed rather oversized and *one google search later* bloody hell those things are big!
I'm well aware of the internet's penchant of paring particularly large animals with particularly small women, but even by those standards these dogs are massive.
Speaking of massive dogs, the next breed is a Baskerville hound. That's a real thing right?
It was giant and ornery so it looked like it deserved to be a giant black predator hunting fictional detectives across the moors of Victorian England.

I'm not entirely sure it's an improvement. Have I mentioned that I hate painting animals? Actually, any large smooth surface, flesh in particular.
I am, however, happy with the outcome on this wee guy.
I'm note sure what breed it is (but I'm sure you can enlighten me ad nauseum in the comments). It looks like some cross between a chihuahua and a miniature German Shepherd.

I was hoping to get a wastelander done to play with them but he'll have to wait for another time.
Instead - as a bonus for you - I finally chose a flock style for my early war French, so here's my BFG entry with some nice happy basing (why yes I
