Help!!!!

Hello all,
I am new to this site and just thought maybe some of you can help me. I got a puppy and when i brought him home he was very sick near death in fact. I spent many months nursing him back to health he is perfectly healthy now but i still have one problem.... I have no clue what breed he is and I was hoping maybe someone could help me out I will attach a pic. Keep in mind his personality is very much blue heeler and collie as he tries to heard us around the house and his howl is very much like a hound but as you will see his coloring is like neither. Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated and thank you in advance

P.S
Sorry there not the best pics!

He looks like he is a big spoiled furball, does it matter what breed/s he is. What a lucky hooman to have such a cutie pie. He knew that you would love him and take care of him, he found the right home. patti

Kegan is a doll! And so lucky to have found you! He looks so happy in that first shot!!

Not sure if I'm seeing greyhound or collie, but he looks enough like collie that I'd be very careful with ivermectin products if you need heartworm protection.

Kegansmom he is stunning! I understand what your saying about your child....I would love to see a picture of him standing? just to see what the rest of him looks like. I see collie too but his markings are unique too!

The brindle colour and black muzzle look like Boxer or Greyhound, and the rest along with his herding behaviour seems like Collie.
Very cute, enjoy !!
