Aren't you a pretty dog!
I think I see German Shepherd and Norwegian Elkhound in her features. Misty is large for an Icie. There are few Icie's in the US, so smaller possibility for mixed breed dogs. I've been told there are similarities across the herding breeds as well as the Northern Spitz breeds.
Glad you saw the article. Fun to see Icies in a magazine.
Look for these traits when wondering if Misty is an Icie mix:
* Dewclaws - front (usually single) and back (doubles) - no dewclaws would be unusual
* Tail that curls onto the back
* Barking - very much a talking breed and will roust out birds
* Very affectionate
* Smiling - almost always, like a permanent natural smile
Lilliana is about 16 inches tall and weighs 24 lbs. I think she is on the small/light end of the Icie spectrum.
Here's a link the information on AKC: AKC - ISD
Hopefully others will chime in too. Let us know the results if you do the DNA test. I did one for Koda, my pound puppy. I don't think there's a test out there for doggie DNA that includes identification of an Icie... yet.
