Default What Breeds?

This is Deacon. He was surrendered to our shelter a few weeks ago. The previous owners seemed to think he was an aussie mix, but no one is quite sure. He has strange eyes. He weighs about 45 lbs and is sort of squat, like a bully breed type dog. I am thinking maybe some sort of Catahoula, but I've never acutally seen one up close. He has a small blaze of white in one of his eyes, but I'm told that is common with the merle coloring.

Looks Catahoula-ish to me. Aussies generally don't have that pattern to their merling.

Still!

That puppy is VERY close to me!

Do you live in NC or was this just a random dog you came across?

I am in Morganton NC. Deacon lives at our shelter. Can anyone give some advice on Catahoulas? We are having some issues with him, some of which are coming from an abusive past, some of which may be breed related.

He looks catahoula-ish to me too much more so than aussie. The only aussie trait I see is the blue merle coloring but that's probably from catahoula in him not aussie would be my best guess.

Looks like an aussie mix to me. one of my friends has an aussie/lab mix with the same coloring and same length of coat. They could pass as siblings easily.
