I now don't have mixes/mutts/All Canadians but I know I try to be careful when asking other people so they don't get offended. And I have to admitt that it annoys me as well with the designers breeds and my tongue is evidence of that by being shredded and bleeding alot lol.

I just hate it when people get all hung up on trying to figure out what breed the dog is. When I look at my dog I don't even see a "breed," I just see my dog. So in a way it annoys me when people don't even see my dog because they're trying to fit her in a box. So I try to avoid long conversations about what the breed is, I just start talking about her.

When we first purchased Happy from a farm, supposedly he came from some Amish folks some town a little ways away. My parents told me that his papers(which I never seen) read "Australian Cattle Dog", which, is absolutely wrong. Eventually I found a site with Australian Shepherd information, and immediately made a connection.

After some thought however, I decided(at the intellectual age of fifteen) that because of his physical disposition, Happy couldn't possibly be a complete Australian Shepherd. I thought we saw and felt some Border Collie, so I would add that - And he became a Border Collie-Australian Shepherd mix.

Now days when I look at him, though, I feel as though I'm not sure if I can really say that. I know he is partially, if not all, Australian Shepherd just by physical attributes and behavior alone. But I wonder now if he was just poorly bred, or perhaps bred from working-dog stock, and I really don't think I can safely say exactly what he is.

So, Aussie mix works well most of the time

Unless asked I don't tell what Peewee is. Peewee is well just Peewee a pee on your shoe, run and hide one of a kind. Half the time when I say what hes mixed with people don't believe me anyway.

I always say Corgi mix. Then come the other breed guesses (99% of the time people say "Aussie" or "Malamute" or "Basset Hound" or something that makes almost no sense at all). Then me saying "Probably Husky or Beagle, I think... heh".

I should just leave it at Corgsky.

I call him by his mix. But I never know how to describe it. Usually I just say cattle dog/kelpie mix. But I think he is most likley Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog/Border Collie/Kelpie/Dingo? Kelpie mix is also a good one, I know he's blue with balck patches but he has quite kelpie personality.

It depends on who is asking. Offically, on her paperwork, Sarama is a border collie mix, so thats what I put on documents.

I suspect she is the offspring of a Jindo and someone's part aussie farm dog, so that's what I answer if I want to give my best guess.

The most honest answer is . . . she's a mix, some sort of herder, some sort of spitz.

If I'm feeling mischevious, she's "All-American," or a "Virginia River Shepherd"

Sarama is a very unique dog... I'm sure you get countless annoying guesses! Where do you think she gets the brindle? I always thought she was part Akita.

We know Maya is half beagle, so usually we say beagle mix. We think there is aussie in her too, so sometimes I call her a beagle/aussie mix. We did come up with a fancy name for her, but it's just a joke between my husband and I, we never actually use it. We call her our Australian Beagledor.

Well, we know what Oz is, and though we don't call him an "Aussie Jack" we do usually say Australian Shepherd/Jack Russell Terrier mix.

I'm going to start calling him a "Georgian Blue Dog" though. Save me a lot of annoying questions about his breeds and where they can get one like him. (Guess what?!, You Can't!!! Hah!)

(Sorry, lol)
