What Breed is My Puppy?

My boyfriend got this puppy two days ago from an ad that said Golden Retriever and Australian Shepherd cross. The "breeder" showed up with the pup in one hand, anxious to get the money and leave.

The poor animal was in really bad condition. Her white fur was yellow and she smelled as if she was sitting in her pee and poo for days. We cleaned her and made her feel at home and comfortable. She's very energetic and has a great personality, but the more we look at her the less Golden Retriever she looks. She has a curly tail which is strange because Golden's tails aren't curly and neither are Australian Shepherds'. We would love your opinions! Side view of puppy's markings.

I have no ideas on her ancestry, but she sure is cute! Best of luck with her! Please let us know what you name her and keep us updated on her as she grows up.

I think it's more Aussie than Lab but the puppy looks like it has pretty good sized feet so expect it to grow into them. The puppy is adorable, will bring you many years of joy and company.

Love her for who she is and she will reward you with years of loyalty. Please have her desexed so that her off-springs will not end up like her the product of unscrupulous back-yard breeders.

You have saved her and given the forever home she is entitled to.

She looks very much like Border Collie rather than Australian Shepherd, colouring, facial features and feet seem to indicate Border Collie and they sometimes have a curled tail as well.
I would encourage you to get her spayed, the long term health of your female dog and no unwanted puppies far outweighs the cost of spaying.

When I was a child our family dog, Lady, was a Border Collie-Shetland Sheltie mix and your cutie pie looks so very much like her including the color markings. Lady only had a little bit of curl to her tail though.

You can find out for sure by having a DNA test done by your vet for somewhere between $50.00 to $100.00 (depends on the vet office standard fee). I suggest having the vet draw the blood and use their lab of choice in order to have the most reliable test results with no surprise added charges and no degrading of the sample. (Home test kits that you ship out for analysis have a chance of sample degradation and hidden costs that the company who reads the results might charge you).

Breed looks just precious. Sounds like she came from a breeder and therefore special attention is needed to help her overcome possible health problems typical of breeder stock.

Please read my past posts on health and the natural way to pet health. Food must not have corn wheat or soy. No grocery store pet food aisle food. For one it contains the bodies of euthanized pets and the sodium phenobarbital does not cook out. Fillers used are allergens and do not promote good health.

Cooking is good. Some raw is excellent. Even fruits and veggies raw except for grapes (or raisins). They can kill. A decent very reasonable kibble is Diamond lamb and rice. No corn wheat or soy. first ingredient is lamb. Same price as Purina.

Diamond is available in specialty store and most often at the horse feed store. EVO is wonderful and so is California naturals but expensive. Build the immune system. Read my posts on anti vaccine especially. Glad you have that little sweetie. She is one lucky little one for you to save from the probable breeder. There are so many that are in the pounds, shelters and lost, alone to suffer. If we all saved one life that is everything to that one little soul.
