Does anyone want to try and identify my dog breed?

She looks quite similar to my mums dogs and they are JRT x border terrier , yours has a fluffier tail though .

MuttonCadet Thu 13-Mar-14 20:02:16

Are you having a laugh? She's a very pretty mongrel, possibly with some collie, terrier in her.

Does it matter? All my rescues have been mongrels, they have less genetic problems and totally adorable.

Shes an absolute sweetie btw, love the neckerchief.

Something about her head shape says chihuahua to me. But I'd say there's a bigger dose of terrier in there...probably JRT or some mix thereof.

I'd also suggest some chihuahua from the domed head and the curled over tail. We have a local rescue that imports dogs from Romania and calls them all "Romys" though no two are alike. Proper Heinz 57 and none the worse for it, in my opinion.

I had a tri-coloured collie cross that had the same markings.

But how coarse is her fur - it definitely looks JRT to me.

And how small is small? Are you talking Chi size?

But from Romania the chances are she's a mongrel for generations, just a generic "dog".

no idea im afraid but she is booootiful

Catsmamma Thu 13-Mar-14 20:20:29

yes...I'd say chihuahua from the head/forehead and eye shape, maybe JRT from the coat pattern, maybe a bit of dachshund from her pointy snout???

Cute though...nd reminds me I must find the neckerchiefs for the bigboys.

No idea, but she's lovely. Does her behaviour give any clues? I.e. is she scent oriented etc? We've thought about having a "guess diplodog's most prevalent ancestry" stall on a similar basis to guess the weight of the cake at the school fete but she wouldn't appreciate the crowds and we'd have to pay £60 or so for a DNA test so as to have some sort of objective answer.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lancashire_Heeler
No idea what breed she is, but my guess is she'll be the Romanian version of something like a Lancashire/Ormskirk Heeler, that was used for driving cattle over very long distances.

cosikitty Thu 13-Mar-14 20:38:48

My first thought was German Shepherd, until I realized how small she was. Maybe German Shepherd crossed with something small and a bit of collie too.

MuttonCadet Thu 13-Mar-14 20:39:02

Sorry MrsDeVere, I realised by your second post that you were genuinely just intrigued by her heritage.

I wonder if shes "Rom dog" crossed with a chi?

She is a lovely girl!

LettertoHermioneGranger Thu 13-Mar-14 20:40:54

Maybe a little bit of beagle?

Kormachameleon Thu 13-Mar-14 20:42:37

squeeee
he is gorgeous mrs d , thank you

yes both my chis and my male pom have been huge and it has been a constant battle to keep their weight down. i suspect it was having them neutered tbh
