Merle in Aussies doesn't affect white markings like that though...he looks to have the typical Irish spotting/markings but heavily speckeled like an ACD. Actually, I think his head looks more ACD than Aussie anyway, so maybe that would account for it?

He's a blue sable. Nose pigment is pretty dark, but he definitely looks blue to me.

His eyes are really light too.

Anyway, he doesn't look a whole lot like a rough collie, I wonder if they meant border collie.

Here's a pic of him next to a blue sable gsd puppy, strong resemblance. The lilacs have much lighter noses, being blue dilutes of livers.


A lilac border collie, notice the reddish nose

On my screen his nose looks black, or it did. Now I'm not sure. Gah, what a confuzzling dog.

I'm pretty sure the breed guess can't be right. I see spitz but maybe I'm crazy...

If the nose is blue rather than black I agree it would be a blue sable or blue fawn.

Coyote blond?

Looks like a good agility prospect, Laur

I wish! He sounds like such a neat dog. I keep reminding myself that when I get back, I'm sure there will be an awesome mediumish herding breed mix or herding breed dog I can adopt. It's hard though!
