Default Breed Guesses on Davey?

Hey,
I've noticed there's quite a few Aussie/BC/Sheltie people here. I wanted to know what you guys thought Davey might be. He's my current foster (And he's got quite a line-up of people waiting for him to get better so they can adopt him!). He's about 1.5 years old, or so the vet guesses. When I got him, he weighed 39lbs, and was very skinny. He has gained a substantial amount of weight since then. So maybe he'll max out at about 45-50lbs.

To me, he looks like an Aussie, but has different fur and a different body style. His body seems to be more like a BC to me... But then again, What do I know

you might be right about the aussie idea. i haven't met one myself yet but in pictures its seems like they have a much wider facial structure. then maybe like, a collie? and a BC?

he's a gorgeous dog anyway

Definitely a lot of Border Collie. The face is too broad for it to be pure, though.

See, I've had a lot of mixed answers-- Some people say mostly border collie, but most say Aussie. I even got a few (this is on a different forum) that said pure Aussie, with the tail!

Right now on Petfinder, he's listed as a Border collie mix. That was my first impression. However, now I'm thinking more Aussie than anything. I think my final answer will be Border collie/Aussie mix.

lol how does it move. I find BC have a very different way of moving compared to aussies. I see a lot more BC there than aussie.

I'm not too familiar with the breeds that he's mixed with, otherwise this would be easier for me Maybe I'll take a video of him later, playing tennis, and I'll post it and let you guys decide what you think he is
