Default Breed guesses

Im begining to think that there is no Springer Spaniel in Keiko at all. I still see some Aussie. But she looks almost identical to my friends Boxer/Pointer mix. I do think she definately has more than two breeds in her.

Personality wise she is a pretty laid back girl. She can go and go when hiking/playing outside. But she is also fine to just lay around the house on a rainy day.

When she wrestles she uses her front paws alot to smack ect. She isn't very vocal. Good with kids, strangers, cats ect. She does like to chase birds and squirrels.

All around she's got a really sweet fun disposition.






She's about 40 lbs now that she has some weight put on her. She was 34 lbs when she was dropped off. Her back comes about to my knee and im 5'4 if that gives you an idea of her height.

Doesent matter to me what she is. Im just curious what everyone else see's in her.

She looks a little Bullyish in that third photo. Pointer or some sort of hound maybe?

Might be Aussie in there.... Possible.

Whatever she is, she's cute! We need more pictures of her. *cough*hint*cough*

With the paw action, her head, and docked tail, I'd guess there's some boxer in there. Maybe with some Border Collie or Aussie mixed in.

Aussie yes, Boxer maybe...I'm trying to think of what would give that white splash across her back? Maybe it's Pointer?

Funny, I've never thought of any of those breeds when I see Keiko. Her face reminds me of JRT. She does look a little like a Pit mix in the third picture, tho.

LOL That sounds a lot like Caleb.

I've seen Beagles and Bassets with a splash like that. I haven't seen any Pointers with it, tho. The white up her left hind leg reminds me of the Border Collie, Pete, in the Border Collie episode of Breed All About It. I'm really wondering if there's some Beagle and JRT in Keiko's mix.

Thanks everyone for the guesses. I know for sure she has Aussie in her, because the woman who gave her up came to visit and brought Keiko's mother with her. She also had an unaltered Bernese Mountain dog with her.

A few more personality quirks.

She has no dog aggression/reaction at all. She is also extremely gentle and kissey with puppies and shy dogs.

She is also very "deer like" with the way she moves and jumps. Very graceful/girly.

Here is a couple more pictures of her.

She kinda looks like my Sam, and he has the spots on the belly. After getting Sam, I found dozens of "Beagle/Rat Terrier" mixes online, as I had no idea they were a "designer" breed called a Regal (barf). Sam is identical to just about every one out there that I've seen, which is what made us pretty positive he's a beagle/rat terrier mix. He's got the terrier energy, but the scent trailing of a beagle. So I'd say it's fit, LOL.

Your girl looks like she's mixed with beagle too, maybe beagle/aussie? Sam's not 40lbs, he's 20-something pounds, so he's on the smaller side.

She could still be part ESS, the marking patterns are typical of a lot of breeds, ESS included.
