My bet is that they told her purebred sheltie.

Yeah in most pics she looks like a big dog. There was one I didn't post that has a border collie butt in the background then you can tell she's actually really tiny.

My instinct was bc/sheltie at first. But the owner has 3 bcs as well and swears she nothing like a border collie in behavior. Then I thought maybe sheltie/whippet but I'd think her face would be more narrow if that was the case.

She was sold as a purebred sheltie to the original owner. I just don't see that. Whatever she is, she's my kind of dog.

What if there was even a little Collie thrown in? That was my first thought before I saw how much she weighed.

Thinking about it more, I don't see much/if any Border Collie.

I think what got me thinking border collie is that last picture looks so much like Shiner.



She reminds me of a cross between Shiner and Sita in a way.

It could just be a horrifically bred bi-blue sheltie.

Mmk Laur, I'm stealing the doggy in your last post! If it is a shelty, the little one is seriously lacking in coat-age. I still love the color

I don't think Shiner's mom would let you take him, lol.

For comparison here's pure shelties at near that age. One well bred and one not so much lol.







And a touch younger (I think about 5 months)



Where is Beanie, lol? I don't know if shelties can be patterned like that. It seems too patched to be a CHW.

Its a sheltie. Its a bi-blue with way too much white. Possibly the result of someone who had two white-factored dogs, or even possibly the result of a merle x merle breeding.

Everything about her instantly screams sheltie to me, and I travel to dog shows with a sheltie breeder/enthusiast. This little girl is just out of a really bad breeder or a throwback. It happens a lot in shelties.
