    Your opinion?

    Hey,
    I was just wondering if any of you knew what kind of dog I have. People from Petcetera say hes a mix border collie and husky? But I also heard different opinions from other people. What do you think?

    Could be shepard/collie. I would think if Husky/Collie there would be longer hair.

    Does he carry his tail down or over his back?

    I sorta see some Husky in him. The tail looks like it belongs to a Husky. Hes quite stocky for a collie. What do you think Dax?

    Sorry Exile I used Collie as short for border collie.

    I have seen lab / shepard crosses that had that same face.

    I would guess a sheperd mix also. but he sure is cute.

    Dax - I was just wondering if you knew how the dog carries its tail, could it help you guess the type of possible breed?

    I definitely see GSD in the dog, maybe husky as the other half. He sure does look big and soft though

    Hmm BC? Well, maybe. But BC's are usually smaller. They are more tall and thin, than short and stocky. The body looks like hes got some lab. Moo, that seems right. If his muzzle was a bit longer, and his ears were pricked up, he would look like a GSD. Also, BC's have straight legs. Labs and GSD's have bent legs. Just some more thought. Whatever he is, it doesnt matter. Hes your unique dog that noone on earth has

    How old is he? He looks young. I see some GSD, maybe husky or lab? Don't see Border Collie, though. Have a lot of them out here.

    My neighbor's were told their pup was a australian cattle dog/australian shepherd mix when they got him. When he grew up, though, I definately think he's a Akita/Heeler mix. He carries his tail over his back, has the ears and has the coat of a Akita. He's got the coloring and freckles like a heeler, though.

    Sorry to ramble on, but you asked if the way it carried it's tail could be an indicator of the breed. Also can tell a lot by the ear type.
