Default Breed guess?

Everyone has a different guess for what Codex is, and I'd like to see what the Chaz community thinks! I know for sure what her mother's breed is, but that leaves 50% to the imagination. I've included a few photos from the front and side, as well as a few of her litter mates. The two merles in the litter were much bigger than the rest of the pups and had shorter hair. The other pups were black/white and some had tan, all had longer hair. Personality-wise, Codex is intense, makes weird noises and she is quick to pick up new things.

Pictures!!

And her litter mates (best I could find on Facebook):

Really she could almost pass for a pure Border Collie.

I'm going to get ACD/BC or Aussie/Lab

Mine is an AussieXJackRussell lol

Codex is 1 part aussie, 1 part velociraptor, and the rest is comprised of awesomeness.

Since you know she's half Aussie, I'd assume the other half was a more dainty breed... so perhaps BC, or even ACD? I doubt my aunt's ACD is pure as he from a shelter, but the colouring on Codex's siblings is similar and Ozzy in particular has a relatively refined muzzle if you look at it from the side.

This is Ozzy:

She reminds me a lot of the Aussie/ACD mix I know. Maybe through in a bit of Border Collie and there you go!

I say Aussie/BC with maybe some JRT or similar terrier mixed in.

She and her sibs are too light boned to be Aussie/ACD imo since both breeds tend toward heavier bone and there is something about the structure of a few sibs that looks terrier-ish to me.

If you hadn't said she had an Aussie for a mom I would have sworn she was a purebred Border Collie. So now I say Border collie/Aussie lol.

Yeah that. I would have said pure border collie for them all.
