|(I actually posted a similar topic under the basenji breed board)
As some of you may already know, Sabina is a German Shepherd X Carolina Dog mix (at least that's what was concluded); however, after recently stumbling across a picture of a supposed Shepherd X Basenji, I thought to myself that it looked a heck of a lot like my dog. I know there isn't a true way of finding out a dog's breed makeup (even DNA tests aren't 100% accurate, nor do they recognize certain 'more feral' breeds like the CD) and pictures can also look different than the actual animal, but I was wondering if anyone thinks my Sabina is a Basenji Mix or if you think she's truly a Carolina Dog mix...
- "fish-hook" tail
- short, semi-coarse coat (coarseness due to the GSD?)
- top layer of coat is somewhat water resistant
- loves water
- uses paws a lot - very handsy and mouthy
- strong prey drive
- slight forehead wrinkles
- Doesn't have a strong "dog smell" to her
- very sight orientated
- about 56lbs
Pics of the supposed GSD X Basenji mix:
I mean, I'm not even sure if the people who own those dogs are 100% sure what mix they are (they look CDish to me), but then again, I'm not 100% sure about mine either, lol...
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
