Default What breed is this dog?

Someone on another board has this dog and gave me permission to ask over here. They're as curious as I am about what you guys think. Anyways, she got this dog from someone who could no longer keep it. Supposedly the dog is purebred, but I don't see it and neither does she. I won't tell you the breed she's supposed to be just yet. The dog is approximately 9 months old and only weighs 13 lbs.

1st day at the new home:



Hank CA - (approx. 1 1/2 year old Spotty Dog)
Mia CGC - (6 1/2 year old Papillon)
Summer TG3 TIAD - (11 year old Papillon)

Doesn't really look like a purebred anything to me... though I did see a similar looking dog at the park the other day whose owner claimed it was a Sheltie. Looks like she could be a Sheltie/Border Collie mix to me maybe, or perhaps Whippet with either one of those breeds. She looks a little sighthound-y in one of the pictures.

Dilute BC or Aussie is my best guess. Definitely something in the herding family as far as shape goes. No idea but a very pretty dog nonetheless.

I would say a Border Collie/Sheltie cross, or a Whippet/Sheltie cross.

in the first picture she looks Sheltie to me. But she looks Border Collie in the others.

I'd say a mix of a horrible lineage of an Australian Cattle Dog and a BC.

Jenna, my dog. Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever. Five and a half years old.

My vote is sheltie/ BC.

I dont know if its the pics or what be she looks heavier than 13 pounds. Lily is over 16 now. I probably shouldn't be comparing dogs to babies though. lol.

I'd have to go with Sheltie/BC too....or maybe Sheltie/Mini Aussie due to weight...
