Wow, what a special looking lady!

She definitely looks like she has several breeds mixed in with her – mommy and daddy were probably both mutts. So …

-Her eyecolor and the shape of her snout looks a bit Husky.

-It’s safe to assume most medium sized mutts dogs running around have a little Pitt in them – maybe that’s where she gets her smooth coat and muscular body?

– Maybe her smaller size (and ears?) comes from a little Jack Russell?

 

Honestly though, I have no idea. I’m usually pretty good at this but she is so unique! Congratulations on adding a new member to your family, she’s beautiful. : )

What a sweetie! I definitely think this girl comes from a proud, long line of mutts! I was wondering if she has some herding dog in her – something like an Australian Cattle Dog?? But she’s pretty small and where does she get those looong legs?

What a beautiful dog! The blue eye is from Husky stock, but the rest looks sort of terrier to me. Congratulations on your new pup!

@MrsBroccoli:  half the mutts at the rescue are _______/Aussie Cattle Dog Mix. 

Huh, that’s funny. I don’t know how popular Aussie Cattle Dogs are in the U.S. but my former neighbor had one (or maybe that’s just what the rescue told him!). When we got one of my dogs she was listed as part Vizsla and part Italian Greyhound. I thought, hmmm, pretty exotic for a shelter dog! The lady who was fostering her basically admitted that they just make those things up. In all likelihood she’s a garden variety lab/terrier mix, not that there’s anything wrong with that. Smile

@MrsBroccoli:  My sister and BIL have two pure Aussie Cattle Dogs… brother and sister rescued from a bad breeding situation.  They are some of the sweetest, most docile dogs I’ve ever met.  The girl even has the same bicolor in her eyes as your pup! She looks like such a wonderful dog.  I wish you the best!

It is weird for me when Americans (or anyone else) call them Australian cattle dogs because to us (in Australia) they are called heelers (normally blue or red). I don’t actually think your new puppy has heeler in her.

This is a heeler

Your girl looks more like a husky/jack russell mix.

@MrsBroccoli:  The shelters should know better!!! I was going off the dogs build more than her markings. Heelers tend to be very stocky and low to the ground (short legs) which are definately not present in your girl!

Pretty girl!  Before I saw the pic with her legs I would have said Husky – Pit mix.  But with those long legs, yes, maybe Greyhound, or foxhound (lots of hound mixes here in Virginia, not sure about other states.)  Looks like they are trying to identify her ears and blue eye as Husky or Cattle Dog (but I would think not both?)  And I’ve seen the eye color in border collies and Australian shepherds, too, so who knows.  Doesn’t matter in the end (though the DNA test sounds fun!)

I bet you can’t wait to get her – enjoy that sweet girl and thank you for giving her a home!! 🙂
