Bella the Australian Kelpie Australian Shepherd Mix

From Ashley: This is Bella. The only breed I am certain of is the Kelpie in her. The vet has guessed she has Australian Shepherd in her. I have searched all over the internet to find a similar looking dog with no luck until I found Sage the Australian Kelpie /Catahoula Leopard Dog mix! Please tell me what you think. She is extremely affectionate and vocal. She loves attention and can be very independent and stubborn. She is very intelligent and high energy! Clearly has herding traits that can be seen when she’s out and playing.

Like I said not 100 percent sure what breeds she is. I spoke to someone that claimed the dad was Kelpie. The vet thinks she is Australian shepherd because its more common for them to have the speckles but I have searched the internet for months trying to find a dog that looks like her with no luck but sage looks so much like her its amazing! Please tell me if you agree!

    How about some corgi? Hard to see how the dog looks like standing. But the legs shortness is easily breed out by the second generation.

    Those ears scream, Shepherd! She sort of resembles our dog. Which makes me think that it is her shepherd side. My dog is German Shepherd, American Pit Bull Terrier, and Labrador Retriever. She is a fair medium size dog, weight between 30-35lbs. Good luck in finding a loot a like in here!

    There might some Corgi there–judging by the face shape and the stubborn streak. I love a speckled dog! She’s a cutie.

    Thanks ya I looked up every possibility and corgi was one of them but again didn’t really see anything that really looked like her I mean similar frames and ears and yes shepherds have the same ears.. she is about twelve months now and tops out at about 40 pounds. She looks porportionate but she looks like she should be a bigger dog. She’s only medium height. I realize her coat is called merle and its not a common coat in herding breeds. Well when I was convinced she was a heeler cross then I was worried she was going to have medical problems that blue heelers with merle coats often are affected by. The vet guessed austrailian shepherd but perhaps acd? I don’t know but as soon as I saw Sages pictures i was awed! Definately think I’m going to get a dna test one day, I’m very interested in finding out. This dog brightens my life everyday! Definately turned me into a dog lover lol
