I found this 1 year old at the shelter. I'm adopting her either way but I am curious about her lineage. She was listed as pomeranian but I don't know a lot about the breed and she looks a bit different than most I find on the internet. For one, she is long. She has a straight tail. Her coat is not puffy but shiny and straight. She has the "fox face". My boyfriend and I were wondering if it's more likely that she's a spitz/pomeranian or sheltie/pomeranian mix since the photos of those look more like her. Also, she was extremely quiet while we took her out and walked her, though I'm sure it's possible she was trained not to bark.

Thanks ahead of time for your suggestions.
