Hi Guys,
I got my dog Bella in March and was told she was an Australian Kelpie. However, she has a curled tail and the tips of her ears flop down. I was wondering what else she could be mixed with? She also looks solid black but has hints on reddish/orange hair around her eyes, neck and feet.

She looks full Kelpie to me. Kelpies can have flopped ears and a curl in their tail sometimes. At a guess maybe the tail might come from another breed but she still looks pretty pure to me!
