Anyone want to guess the mix of my mystery mutt? PIX!!
« on: October 02, 2007, 10:33:36 pm »
Tani (pronounced TAH-nee, rhymes with "Bonnie") was a roadside rescue that we came upon when she was about 6 months old. Over the past 2 years we have kicked around some guesses as to her mix. Of course, it could be many mixes...but, our best guess is Australian Shepard, due to the bi-colored eyes and the one merle sock on her one foot, and maybe boxer? Some people think she's a pit mix, but then, lots of uninformed people think that any brindle dog is a pit mix. Sometimes, at some angles, I'll admit she may look a bit am staff. Her ears are ALWAYS down or folded back, even in her alert mode, so I don't know what breed that is typical of. They are never, ever up straight. I don't think there are any clues in her behavior - she is just a dog. Sweet as can be with cats, kittens and kids. Playful with other dogs, occasionally tries to dominate at the dog park but backs of right away and it turns into play. Although not a barker as a rule, she acts all ferocious when someone is at the door, but if I let them in, she's all submissive and until recently used to have a submissive pee issue, which was really embarrassing when it's like, the cable guy or something. So, anyone want to share an opinion??

Thanks! I am a total sucker for those eyes, too.

Forgot to mention, she is about 2 1/2 now, and weighs #65, if that helps...

How about Aussie, Lab, Greyhound?  The shape of her head looks more lab than pit.  The coloring and ears could be greyhound, maybe?

i would say she looks more husky than aussie.  and i second the greyhound.  the body style (except the tail ha ha), ears, face all look greyhoundish to me.  and greyhounds come in brindle, also.  if i had to guess i'd say GH/husky/lab.  lab b/c it looks like a labish tail to me.
