While I don't recognize the breed of the puppy, the T clearly shows the balloon tires, one piece back class, and equal length hinges all characteristic of the late 1925 open cars. And yes it also has the one man top, slant windshield and splash apron under the radiator that would make it a 1924-1925 high cowl roadster. All that assumes the parts are original to that car (i.e. an owner could have swapped his earlier body for the 1925 high cowl roadster body they fit fine (would also need to change to the oval gas tank if it was a lot earlier chassis).

Thank you so much for posting the photo.

Respectfully submitted,

Is it just the angle of the photo, or is the windshield leaning back further than normal?

I think it is an optical illusion as the left front wheel is on the bank at the side of the road , notice how the running board is far from level. I think this makes the windscreen seem to have a steeper slope than normal.
