Aussie X ACD with something daintier, either JRT/other terrier or BC.

Chalk me up as another who would have believed purebred BC.

That said it's possible there are multiple fathers. It's interesting that the two non-merle dogs seem to have very heavy ticking in the irish white but both merles have clean white.

You know that thought has crossed my mind as well of having multiple dads for the litter. I've asked for a DNA test for my birthday, just for fun. I'd like to see what breeds pop up in the mix.. probably Basset Hound and Basenji :P

I also forgot about one of the merle pups, she went to a family in Ohio and I'm not FB friends with her owners haha. She was also the same size as the other merles compared to the other pups. Dex is the only merle in the group that didn't have a nub tail.

The terrier guesses are interesting, that's one group of breeds I hadn't considered before, but I can see it. Usually I just say Aussie mix, or Aussie/BC mix, but I had one lady swear up and down she was an Australian Cattle Dog. I ask if she meant Australian Shepherd.. "no no, Cattle Dog". Eh, whacha gonna do. The BC people say she isn't mixed with BC, the Heeler people say she isn't mixed with Heeler. I've had people suggest some sighthound breeds, Collie, Lab and Houla as possible mixes too.

It's so interesting that you can find traits from all these breeds in her if you look closely. My guess is that mama dog met up with mixed breed dad from down the road and that is why the litter was surrendered.

And because it's full of cuteness, here is the group on their first leg of transport up to MN:



Thank you all for your guesses, I love to see what other people think she might be

I actually think the one that looks b/w and heavily ticked is a cryptic merle.
