A couple of years ago someone on Yahoo! Answers asked what breeds of dogs do rednecks own:
A lot of good answers were given:
"Any hound dog would be "redneck",
Black & Tan Coonhound
(maybe not so much)
Just very droopy kinda looking dogs.
Mutts and mixed breeds could also be considered "redneck", depending on their mixture. Often Rottweiler or Pit Bull/Am. Staff mixes are popular for rednecks that want to look "tough".
I live in a very "redneck" community. It depends if you're looking more at the kind of redneck that lives out in the middle of nowhere and makes his own moonshine or more rancher-kinda redneck.
My answer was more directed at the moonshiner-type.
etc. good livestock guardian dogs.
or other herding-type breed mixes would be more suited to the "rancher"-type redneck.
If you're actually considering BUYING a dog, make sure you buy them from working lines and not showing lines.
Good luck! xx

"I had a mutt named Moonshine and everyone told me she looked like farm dog (and she was lol) if that's what you mean by redneck?
I also have a German shepherd/Lab/Aussie/Golden retriever cross (or so the DNA test said) who I am constantly getting comments about how he looks like a farm dog...and he kinda is, we have a farm and a house in the city.
So in my opinion just a large mutt. I got my first dog off a farm lol and the second I found his litter while duck hunting....so pretty "redneck" right from the get go for them!
"Catahoula Leopard dog
Black Mouth Cur
(Old Yellar was one)
Blue Tick and Red Tick hounds
(a sighthound mix for hunting coyotes)
(smaller than the rest, for cleaning rodents out of the barn and small game)
Normally they are cross breeds (hence the cur in the name), but these breeds are in the mix. We pick our pups based on how they hunt and work, not their looks. Most of the breeds we own are not popular as pets because they are active, smart, and usually not friendly towards strangers. I highly recommend researching any of these breeds before buying one. Any one of them can bring a wild boar to a stand still, and that is a tough dog, better be smart enough to handle them!"
"When I think of a dog a red neck would own, I think of a blood hound
or some kind of hound. But it is probably just a matter of opinion! Are you a red neck wanting to own a dog? Or do you have a dog that you think should belong to a red neck?
(Or if you want to be literal, I would get a Chinese crested hairless
and let it get sunburned)"
"Driving around the "redneck area of town", I see mostly Labs, Beagles and Boxers.
If I drive around the rural areas, I see a mix bag of dogs."
"Red neck, do you mean hunting dogs, beagles, blood hound
, etc.? rat terriers
are good too.
What are you looking for a dog to do? No beagles or bloodhounds in apartments they howl.
"I live in a southern US state and the breed/s mostly owned are pit/pit mixes and lab/lab mixes."
I highlighted the names of actual dog breeds that were given.
