GO!

Let's play guess the breeds again :-)

If you are wondering what is the right dog for you, this is the place to be. In this introductory forum we talk about topics such as breed vs. mix, size, age, grooming, breeders, shelters, rescues as well as requirements for exercise, space and care. No question is too silly here. This particular forum is for getting and giving helpful, nice advice. It is definitely not a forum for criticizing someone else's opinion, knowledge or advice. This forum is all about tail wagging and learning.

My dog here was listed as Husky/Australian shepherd mix, but I don't see the Aussie. Her foster had found her at the pound - she'd been taken in as a stray. So anything is just a guess.

Her eyes are both parti, which is probably why the pound guessed Aussie, even though that happens with Huskies too.

I know they're not common in the US, but I'd swear she's Belgian Mal & Husky (Though GSD is often guessed by others)....

She just weighed in at 58 lbs at last visit, at about a year & 5 months. Guessing height at withers is in the low 20's. She's just a little shorter than my daughter's male Siberian.

Whatever she is, I think she's a mix of breeds not recommended for first time dog owners, which I am. But that's okay, I'm home full time and we're working it out together. She's a keeper, had her for 10 months now.

Gorgeous, thats what she is! cloud 9

However.. I don't see Malinois, I don't think. What I think I might see is Cattle Dog? Which they may have gotten the two (Australian Cattle Dog & Australian Shepherd) mixed up. Iunno. I'm bad with mixes C:

What's funny is I knew nothing of Malinois until I saw a story on TV one day, looked up more info on them and had an aha moment. Especially when I found a handful of Mal/husky mix pics online, practically twins to her. Not having that same feel from pics of the cattle dogs, though I'm sure they're more common here.

Urmmm...for my guess I'm going with Akita/husky mix, though she may have more than two breeds in her. Whatever she is, she looks adorable!cloud 9

I see Malanois big time. The black mask, the facial and body structure .... all Mal.

This is one of the Belgian Mal pics I saw online that helped sell me on the idea that Ace is part Mal.

And here's a couple links to pics of a couple of Husky-Mal mixes ...

But pictures aren't the only factor. I busted out laughing when I got to the description of the Mal temperament "Some may be excessively exuberant or playful, especially when young".

Anyhow... I'm an amateur. Like I said, she's first dog, so I appreciate the input.

Oops, first link doesn't work. The picture of the dog named Adonis is the one I was referring to.

And the other links don't go to the pics I was looking at.

But this link should go to the Belusky page...

Essh, I look utterly computer incompetent

I think it could be possible to have Mal or some sort of Shepherd in her.
