Is there any way to find out what kind of dog it was?

My best hope is that when reexamining some of the photographs and surviving records we have from the Westermeyer family that there might be either a picture including the dog, or some sort of clue of the breed. I've scoured the newspaper archives for further mention of Jacob's dog, but unfortunately haven't found anything yet. Maybe with an eye for the dog, we might notice him or her in the background of a family photograph!
