I'm going with HBH and saying ACD/Shiba or just ACD/some type of spitz.

Here is my ACD/????? cross. We know for certain her mom was purebred ACD. No idea about her daddy.

This picture is older, like 4 years ago.

I'm not sick of these threads! I like really them, actually.
Kelpie x Shiba Inu would be my guess; that or ACD x Shiba.

Too cute!! I'd love to get Rudy into agility training, but he's waaaay too clumsy... he'd knock everything over, LOL. I do see a resemblance between them, especially in the snout.

So it looks like we almost have a consensus... either Kelpie or Cattle Dog mixed with a Northern breed or Shiba Inu. Sounds like what I've thought! All of those breeds make sense for both his looks and personality, especially with his herding behavior and vocalizations (woo-wooing). I also suspect Cattle Dog more and more lately, since his nose/chin has started to turn gray - he's only 3 years old, so it can't be age-related. The ACD has a distinctive gray speckled snout, and I thought of that when his started to change.

Check it out... and sorry about the freaky eyes, LOL. If anyone knows how to avoid that, please tell me!

At least it wasn't that much money, since they only charged me for the original test ($55) plus a $20 upgrade fee.
It's very cute... I could just barely tell from the first picture. I wonder if there's a smidgeon of bully or brachycephalic way back in his lineage? Or he's just unqiue. : )

Yeah, I mean, that isn't too expensive, and it will be fun to see the results. I might do it for Fozzie, for kicks.

Nikki is from SF... and a few others, too. I'm near Sacramento, but I love going to parks/beaches in the bay area. You guys are sooo lucky to have such amazing dog parks! Me and Nikki just met up at Pt Isabel this summer, actually.

I totally agree.

I have met LOTS of Kelpies in the area, actually... and I've seen quite a few who look completely purebred in shelters around here. There are frequently ads in the paper for Kelpies. I wouldn't be surprised, but he could certaintly be part ACD instead, or even in addition! He does look a bit less stocky than an ACD to me.

TGR, you live by Lake Tahoe!?! I live by there, too. Well, an hour or so away, but that's neat. We need to hang out someday. I've noticed we agree on lots of things... which is always good. teehee

Ummm ... odds prolly about the same as an ACD meeting up with a Shiba.
Either way, Shibas are pretty popular in SF and the larger surrounding area.

::shrug:: Rudy could be part ACD, but as others have said ACDs are usually stockier and more "meaty" by comparison. Whatever he is breed-wise he certainly is cute!!

Yes ... love it but it snowed up here yesterday!
Snowed like crazy and it's not even Halloween yet!! I am sooo not ready for winter yet.
Yes, we agree on lots and it would be uber cool to someday meet Gonzo the Wonder Dog. Too late for him to meet Cheyenne the Wonder Golden ... she had lots of doggy friends but from your description of Gonzo she woulda loved him.

Thanks! Who knows what he is, and honestly I don't care... it's just a puzzle that would be fun to solve. Know what I mean? Still anxiously awaiting the results, so I'll let you all know when they arrive. Oh, and I do see a lot of Shibas around here - one of my neighbors has 3 of them!

I used to live in South Lake Tahoe, and it actually snowed on my birthday (Oct. 20th) one year - way cool. I loved it up there, but had to leave for college... tried to move back after I was done, but I couldn't find a job close enough. Oh well, it all worked out for the best!

Yeah, why not? It will be fun to find out, if the results are more definitive this time.

It is a great place to live! I grew up around here, and never thought I'd stay - nonetheless move to the actual city... but I really love it now, and can't imagine living anywhere else. Anytime you're down here, I'd be happy to show you the good dog parks.

Here's another picture I took of him last night... noticed he looked serious in the others, so thought I'd post one of his cute smile.



And FYI, these are the breeds they can test for: https://www.canineheritage.com/breeds.php
No Spitz, Kelpie or Cattle Dog on there (they do have Shiba)... so the mystery may never be solved, except through the process of elimination.
