She is as good as gold. Bomb proof as well, not fussed with loud noises etc. Got her 4 months ago from a rescue as a crossbreed. She is medium sized and had a longish coat which moulted off to a short coat. Chases and brings back ball religiously. Very acrobatic. Well trained. Affectionate. Found as a stray.

We love her. Any ideas of breed? Just out of interest really...

Jack Russell. A bit beagley too.

JRT face for sure! How broad is she at the front?? Maybe a touch of staffie??

NattyGolfJerkin Wed 31-Aug-16 10:35:24

Looks like there's some Jack Russell in there looks wise but her height, tail and body shape suggests something else too. She looks happy, whatever she is grin

Pretty dog!
Jack Russel x staffy imo

JRT X Collie for me. She's awesome.

She looks like a JRT to me.

She is quite slight rather than broad at the front. Thanks for the compliments grin she is a beaut. Interesting someone said beagle and collie too. Definite contenders.

Jack Russell plus something a bit taller. Her tail looks like it could be collie, which would fit with the ball retrieving obsession and the double moulting coat. She would probably love agility training.

And yes to Jack Russell, agree with that.

ProseccoBitch Wed 31-Aug-16 10:43:58

She's lovely! Face is very JRT. I would hazard a guess at Jack Russell x Collie. Happens often on farms smile

sweatyfarce Wed 31-Aug-16 10:44:05

She LOVES agility. We do it over benches and tree stumps.

sweatyfarce Wed 31-Aug-16 10:45:25

JRT and collie it is then. Thanks all. She is an amazing dog, so lucky to have her.

I know nothing at all about dogs but I just had to say she is gorgeous smile

Beautiful Girl, her body & rear end remind me a little bit of our Whippet, but I doubt that, but could be some other sight hound like a Saluki?

I would agree she could have some Beagle in there, & (or) JRT.

Jack Russell X spaniel

Tail, size and tummy makes me think spaniel

KoalaDownUnder Wed 31-Aug-16 10:55:06

She's made of cute. smile

sweatyfarce Wed 31-Aug-16 10:59:23

Hadn't thought of spaniel. Interesting.

She is 100% pure cute.

Don't know why but I'm blushing with pride grin

100% JRT x working Collie

My neighbor had this mix and she is almost identical to their dog! he too was a ball addict and spent many happy hours bringing his ball to the fence for us to throw it across the garden for him grin

His name is Basil, he's nearly 18 now and still going strong although his famous first bounce ball catching skills are a bit hit and miss these days!

Looks like my daughter's Jack Russell x Stafffie

GinIsIn Wed 31-Aug-16 11:44:51

JRT x collie. Can't just be JRT X Staff I don't think as neither of those explain that tail. Gorgeous dog!

Bubble2bubble Wed 31-Aug-16 13:35:44

JRT x collie or possibly JRT x lab/collie at a guess. Gorgeous smile

BastardGoDarkly Wed 31-Aug-16 13:38:42

Her tail looks saluki!

ChardonnayKnickertonSmythe Wed 31-Aug-16 13:38:58

Her face says JRxStaff, but her body something else.

Came on to say Jack Russell X Collie, and read that others had said the same.
Lovely dog: how sad to think of her straying, but she looks so happy now, out and about with her new family.
We have a rescue dog and, just out of interest, had a DNA test done when it was offered at our vets; you could enquire about that if you wished.
Whatever she is, she's a gorgeous dog.
