Exclamation Breed needs identified

Hello,
I very recently adopted a beautiful 10 week old puppy from my local animal shelter named Lucy, she was left to fend for herself in death valley, CA. The shelter workers were not certain of her breed but we do know that she has a fair amount of border collie in her. The thing that stumps me the most is her unbelievable ears, cute as they may be i have never seen anything like them. If anybody has a reccomendation for directions for me to look into or just a guess of what else she may have i her i would be more than greatful. Hopefully i can discover what this sweetheart is mixed with.

Pictures below:
(Taken at pound day of adoption, Slight hair loss due to mal nutrition so may fluff up a bit)

She could be all border collie. Those ears will do all sorts of things likely as she grows up.

Thats what i thought right off the bat because growing up i had 2 pitbulls with that almost exact color coat. Her head isnt quite as long and skinny as i would expect from a pure BC but shes still a puppy

It's usually harder to tell with puppies. She could be full BC. . .it's hard to tell. Don't worry about her ears. I've seen puppy ears like that, and they usually either become fully pricked or stand up just enough to be slightly tipped. Both ear types appear in the Border Collie.

I only see BC, but like it has been said, it's harder to tell with puppies. She is absolutely adorable!
