Question Could Frankie Be A Full Blooded Bearded Collie?

So Sweet PMed me awhile back (thanks for the tip Sweet!) that Frankie sure did look a lot like a bearded collie, and could possibly be mixed with one. After looking around at photo's, I totally agree'd.

The woman that owns Frankie claims she got him from someone when he was around 2, and had no idea what he was.

But the more photo's of Bearded Collies that I look at, the more he really kinda looks like a full blooded bearded collie. Kinda. And, before he was shaved, of course.

So this was Frankie, matted, dirty, and before his shave down:








And here's some (better groomed) Bearded Collie pics off the internet:











Watcha guys think? Is it possible?

It could be possible, but I don't think a full blooded. A mix with Bearded Collie.

I don't think so, because of his tail, and Beardies are more heavily boned than Frankie looks to be.
He definetly looks like he has Beardie in him, though.

Doesn't really look like he'd be full blooded to me, just by little nit-picky things... but he definitely looks like he has some Bearded Collie in him!

Oh, I definitely agree, he's got to have Bearded Collie mixed in with him somewhere. But looking at some of the pics on the internet, especially the last two I posted, I went "wow, that looks like Frankie!"

Haha, the last two truly do look like him, with the facial hair and expression.

How big is he? He looks small to be a beardie. A friend of mine has a beardie but he's always kept in full show coat. Frankie looks similar but his build, hair texture, and face shape to me look off to be a beardie. Also, what's his temperament like? Is he herdy at all? I think he's a poodle mix, personally. He reminds me a lot of a 'schnoodle' we had in the shelter once.

He looks more like a small Briard or Briard mix. I've never seen a Beardie in that color.

FWIW - "Buck" from 'Married With Children' was a Briard, but didn't look anything like the Briards you see in the shows ..

Its hard to tell on the internet (people are always saying wow Dekka is so small when they meet her in RL) but Frankie seems to small to be a beardie.

I worked at a kennel that had bearded collies and huskies. He doesn't look like one to me.
