I saw them in a parked car (late afternoon, not hot!) the other day - 2 of them - both weresmall-medium sizelight sandy furpricked earspale blue eyesHaving googled I think they had a look of husky about them, but were much smaller. TIA
Message withdrawn at poster's request.
thanks, Mutt - nothing like that though - they were kind of like foxes, but a bit bigger, with short fur, & very narrow upright ears (& these piercing pale blue eyes)I should have taken a photo!
Shiba inu? Can't link I'm on my phone. They look fox like imo.
no, neither of those either!not puppies, def full-grown dogs - fairly narrow pointed faces - short sandy hair.if there'd only been one I'd have thought it was a random cross-breed but there were 2, identical.how frustrating!
Two x breeds from the same litter? Or some new kind of designer dog with a silly name?
can that happen - getting 2 identical puppies in a cross-bred litter?they didn't look like designer dogs, iykwim - have never seen anything like them before though...
googling again - the eyes were definitely husky, I'm sure, & so were the ears, but they had no facial markings & were sandy all over pretty much - they must have been a cross-breed of some kind then.thanks, all
this seems like a bit of a hefty link, but this?
It was long (hefty), but the pic showed up...
that is a hefty link!top half of head is similar (though ears were closer together & more upright) but nose was different - more pointy & delicate.
you're making me think Podenco??(these links keep getting heftier!!!)
that is quite similar, MotherJack, esp in colour, & shape of head.but yours is more delicately built I think, & its ears are bigger, wider set & more flared - the one I saw had husky-type ears, straight up & down & close together on top of its head. (Never heard of podencos before, thanks for the introduction )
Could be finnish spitz. Sorry cant do link.
Finnish SpitzI love Finnish Spitz, going to have one, one day, sigh, but I don't think they ever have blue eyesMaybe just 2 cross breeds from the same litter?
Pharoah Hound? They have blue eyes when they are pups/into early adolesence.
The Spitz & Pharaoh hound are both the right colour but the wrong build Basenji is very like although its ears are set further apart. I wonder if it might be a basenji-husky cross?
I had a basenji cross (probably lab-basenji). His eyes weren't blue, and his ears flopped over, and he was a total dustbin where snacks were concerned: that was the lab part But he was fox coloured, small/medium sizsed, his tail curved up over his back a bit, he licked his paws to wash them, and he was a 'talker' extraordinaire.I would love another basenji cross <sighs>
