German sheppard/border collie?

April 10th, 2005, 04:06 PM
This is my friends puppy Peanut. They told her at the shelter that he was a german Shepard mixed with a border collie. I don't know a whole lot about breeds, but I don't see any Collie in him at all. Any other ideas?

I haven't seen him in person yet. She says he's not as long and short as he looks in this one.....

He has dobie/rottie markings though. I'd say dobie german shepherd, depending on the size the doggy turns out to be.

Borders do come in tri marked as well, looks so much like a shepherd its hard to tell.

We had a dog come into rescue, a puppy that looked almost exactly like this one except his ears didn't scream right up. People had both parents and he was Rottie Malamute mix.

If he could flap those ears he could fly!!!

He sure is a cutie! But those ears have me thinking Corgi (a little too wide set and rounded at the tips to be Shepherd or Collie, IMO). Is there any way we can see a full-on body shot? How old is he, and how much does he weigh right now? I love the colours! :)

I was thinking Sheltie or Miniture Collie and shephard X :)

It's face looks so Collie to me

I actually agree with the shelter that he is a shepherd/collie mix

(remember, he's not mine! :) ) it's a profile shot. I believe he is about 8 weeks in the first picture, and 10-11 weeks in the second.....
