Default Breed guesses?

This is Lilly, a friend's dog. She was just rescued from a home with about 15 other dogs, they were all kept outdoors with food tossed to them, and Lilly was the smallest and is very timid, so she never got her share of the food.

I'm curious to see what you all think she may be. I was told what breeds she is supposed to be (a cross between two purebreds), but I don't believe it. Well, the one half I can see but not the other. LOL, anyway, I'll tell you all what she's supposed to be later, after a few guesses. Lilly is 6 months old, and underweight right now but should probably be about 30-35 pounds. She's maybe 18 inches tall at the shoulders but not positive on that one.

So what do you think?

Looks like a mini leonberger to my untrained eye.

Perhaps a GSD or Malinois mix?

Leonberger was what popped into my head, but I know that's not right. Probably some sort of shepherd/collie mix.

LOL, mini Leonberger is the very first thing I said when I saw her. I figured I just must have been looking at Cleo pictures for too long. They're definitely not common in this area though so I doubt it.

I really don't believe what they said the dad was... but then again, there are so many strays around here and the mom is an outside dog so it's extremely possible that she was bred by more than one dog.

I see border collie and maybe retriever or husky...but probably something smaller? Definately border collie, though.

I see GSD. I was going to say Golden but the white paw makes me think another herding dog like ACD or Aussie - it looks like it has the little spots the acd has.
