Calling all experts! What is the long-haired one on the left. Googling skills letting me down!

Oooh I know it, give me a sec...

Hungarian puli?

TinyTimsCrutch Mon 03-Feb-20 16:26:58

Scrap that I didn’t zoom in yours hasn’t got dreads confused

LochJessMonster Mon 03-Feb-20 16:29:06

no I don't. I thought it was a long haired Berger Picard but the nose is wrong.

Other options -
Pyrenean shepherd
Tibetan terrier
soft coated wheaten terrier (distinctive face shape)

Looks too big to be a Puli - they are quite a small breed with a markedly corded coat. Could well be a cross though. Could also be a cross with a Romanian Miroritic Shepherd - the size and type of coat look about right for a cross although they are usually grey/white even in a cross. Definitely looks like a middle European livestock breed/cross though

LochJessMonster Mon 03-Feb-20 16:30:02

I did think a Puli but with straight hair?

Tibetan terrier?

RatherBeRiding Mon 03-Feb-20 16:32:09

Briard is another possibility

JamieFraserskneewarmer Mon 03-Feb-20 16:35:32

Thanks for responses - I saw it on Wisting which is a Norwegian drama and managed to find a photo but no details. I thought it might be a Pyrenean shepherd but is not. When it was sitting down it had fabulous ear fringes on German Shepherd shaped ears so not a Romanian Miroritic Shephed (although they are gorgeous too!) .

It has distinctive ear tips which I recognise but can't name.

SansaClegane Mon 03-Feb-20 16:41:03

I thought Briard too when I looked at the photo.

Fjord1983 Mon 03-Feb-20 16:42:30

Yeah, I thought on Briard as well

Wheaten terrier?

Difficult to judge size but I think it is too small to be a Briard. Definitely not a Puli.

JamieFraserskneewarmer Mon 03-Feb-20 16:44:53

I think Ratherbe Riding has it! Thanks SO much!

Briards are big dogs. They do have the same ears, but are big stocky dogs.

LochJessMonster Mon 03-Feb-20 16:50:52

Actually I guess it is the same height as the Doberman which is right for the breed, it just looks very small compared to the mans leg in the background.

Albatross123 Mon 03-Feb-20 16:52:02

The ears look more like a Cairn terrier. Briards have floppy round ears in UK but in the US they sometimes crop them.

Albatross123 Mon 03-Feb-20 16:55:15

I guess if the other is a Doberman then I am way out on size. The other option would be a Bouvier des Flanders (which I have). They are heavier built than a Briard, but again floppy ears in the UK, often cropped to stand up in the US.

My 1st thought was a briard. My doodle sometimes gets mistaken for one

EmmaOvary Mon 03-Feb-20 18:12:11

I'd say a Briard.

Darklane Mon 03-Feb-20 18:59:34

The coat is wrong for a Wheaten.
If the legs had been shorter I’d have said a Skye like my lot.

Darklane Mon 03-Feb-20 19:00:56

Though it looks reddish & there’s no red in any Skyes

Darklane Mon 03-Feb-20 19:10:50

Could it be this? It’s running so it’s ears could be bobbing up & down & photo caught the “up”.
Catalonian Sheep Dog

I'd go with Briard too, they are Doberman sized
