My Sister's New Dog
#1
My sister just adopted this cute pup from a German Shepherd rescue. He was listed as a white GSD mix.

I think he is so cute!

He is a year old and weighs 50 lbs./23 kg. She says when he barks that he sounds a lot like Mattie (rescue, so I can't be positive she is all BC) and he loves to herd their pet pig.

Anyone want to guess what he is? Not that it matters but it is always fun to guess and it might give my sister help with training.

He's a handsome fellow! Not good at guessing but the face shape and ears look a little husky to me. Also the look he's giving in both pics.

He is absolutely adorable! I'd snatch him up too! So pretty!

I was just about to say Husky as well. Was my first thought as I flicked through first, then I read GSD. I don't know - I see Husky lol.

In relation to herding (if it is part Husky) - I witnessed Kairo trying to control movement at the dog park today. I actually had to leash her as the more excited she got the more it looked like she was actually herding. I've not even see Ember be so blatant about it. It looked like Kairo was trying to pin these three dogs plus Ember in a "open" circle (meaning she was circling them incessantly in a tight circle and directing anybody who started to move away back into the circle. The "herdies" didn't seem to notice at all as they were all playing their own game so I watched to see what would happen.

It only took a few seconds to become a "growly" venture and it went from "herding" to "full body shoving" to one very sharp snap towards a dog in rapid succession. I immediately leashed her and walked her around in a large circle until she calmed down, and she never reached that point again.

So now that I've derailed this completely... can huskies herd? 0.o

I can definitely see white shepherd in the mix. They are a little different in the face to many other GSD's As for the other half it could be anything but wouldn't discount a BC type mix. I don't really see husky but can understand how the eyeliner might influence that idea. He is a beautiful dog whatever he is.

His head shape & ears is very similar to Bronwen's (who's full BC) so maybe there's some BC in the mix too. Whatever is in there he's very handsome!

He is the spitting image of my friend's "pure bred" white GSD. Same size too.
Gotta love 'em.
