She has my heart not matter what she's mixed with. She just so cute and lovable, a permanent part of this family. I just happen to be a mystery/puzzle fan, so this a mystery to me.... lol Though at the moment Phoebe is amusing me by playing herd the husky and Midnight is baiting her . He has a lot of fun playing with her. The only downsize is Lilly the lab gets annoyed with them and starts yelling. LOL
Going to look into the spaniel angle a bit more.
Haha, I am the same. I am a problem/mystery solver by nature. While the answer to the mystery might make absolutely no difference to a given situation I just can't help but to try and figure out the how, why, where and what. I like having an inquisitive and investigative mind and it has served me well in both my private life and past career.
She is absolutely beautiful. Her folded, slightly curly haired ears and her eyes have a look of spaniel but how wonderful if there was such a thing as a miniature border. She looks super bright. Spaniels have a very distinctive nose to the ground when in the undergrowth so maybe as you get to know her youll get some clues. Have fun!
I almost said spaniel too, but the dwarf legs made me erase it. Besides, I used to have a Peke mix, and I've known a few of them over the years, so I'm used to the way they express in a mix.
Gotta love 'em.
i'm trying to get a picture of her standing up. But she just wants to play and not cooperate. lol Phoebe is 29 pounds, 16 inches from withers to the floor and abt 19 inches from her bottom to her neck. She was not making it easy for measurements so they are approx but fairly close i think. I've been looking at the different spaniels to see which ones are the smaller ones that if mixed with a border collie would average out to my Phoebe's size..
There are definitely other breeds that have feathered feet. That was one of the reasons I suggested Peke as a breed. They have feathered feet of that particular shape. Not that I think she has any Saluki in her, but Salukis have feathered feet too. Some breeds have feathered feet but are shaved for showing so breed standards don't mention them. And I know at least one BC that has feathered feet, not to mention some Golden Retrievers, Belgian Shepherds, and others.
Gotta love 'em.
something i noticed while googling that it's hard to find out which breeds have fiddle feed and feathered feet. I keep getting sites about medical conditions instead of what i'm looking for... ugh
