|If she wasn't such a herding dog in terms of her temperament, personality and general drive it'd make more sense to me. She even does that funny laying flat on her back to sleep which, after joining a few kelpie groups, I've seen a TON of.
It seems to be working on the premise that since all dogs are the same species, they all share certain a set of genes. Throw enough breeds together and really anything is possible. Colourwise and physically, she very well could be the breeds they claim.
With her back end, it does look very GSD-ish, but in the Kelpie standard it also calls for the long sloping croup.
And out of all those soft coated breeds, I'm wondering where her short dense, almost wiry in texture, waterproof coat came from.
I try to tell myself that I shouldn't really care what she is or is not, but I'm mostly just upset that it didn't really come up with more in the herding dog section. Yeah, I'm a little immature in that sense.
I gotta keep reminding myself that if I wanted to know exactly what I was getting I would have gone to a breeder.
I've asked them to simply remove any indication that Rigby was ever sent in for testing. It's a heck of a lot easier to tell a potential landlord that I've got 2 medium sized sheepdogs than a GSD/Husky mix (especially when I live in a province of such breed prejudice). So to remove all indication that she ever had the test done is just for my own peace of mind.
Rare "Canadian tri colour Dingo" or...Dingbat is what she can be
