|Willow and I thank all of you so much for giving us some ideas to look at.
Sandy Baby's human, I know that you are absolutely right, a Heinz 57 dog is what I have, much like what you have with Sandy, who is an absolute doll, btw. The aussie shep is the only breed I have ever consistently thought she might have in her.
I agree 100% with you on not seeing the rhodesian at all. I mean at first we thought, "wow, cool, some really awesome lion hunting dog" and we would always tell people we had a rhodesian ridgeback.
After doing much more research, we totally realize she is not that. I mean maybe the people we got her from knew that her dad has some rhodesian ridgeback in him and that's why they told us that, so she might have an infinitesimal bit of RR in her but yeah, with you on that.
Btw, I have never heard the phrase "wonder mix" before and will definitely be using that for Willow now!
Rosalie's human, on behalf of Willow, thank you so much for the compliment! Rosie, we have to tell you, you are quite a beauty as well, I mean those ears are just gorgeous!
It's funny that you mention collie because the other day we took a trip to the animal shelter just to see the dogs and cats and give them all some love, and there was a female collie there that looked so much like our Willow.
Her coloring was much different and she was a little shorter and smaller as far as weight, but the head and snout shape were so Willow.
Lita's human, thanks for replying. You know, we have a chow golden retriever mix in our family as well, and I swear I have thought somtimes Willow might have some golden in her, because they do have some similarities, but we always just say it's because they are sisters and are trying to copy eachother!
Thanks again to everyone for all the wonderful ideas to research and ponder. I know that short of DNA testing we may never know exactly what she is, but it's fun to have some ideas. No matter what she may be, we love our "wonder mix" from the tips of floppy ears to the end of her fluffy tail.
