    Australian Shepherd Mix

    I have a four month old Australian Shepherd mix and I have heard many breeds as to what he may be. I have been told that he is part corgi, which I don't think he is. I have also been told he's part collie, German shepherd and even husky. I just want to see what other peoples opinions are. Thanks very much.

    (He's the one in the middle in the second picture.)

    He looks like just a mutt. The ears scream corgi but that's extremely unlikely. I can't think of anything else.

    The ears remind me of a Rat Terrier...well, a Corgi, also.

    As soon as I saw the picture, the first thing that came to mind was a Corgi!

    Re: Australian Shepherd Mix

    i definitely see the Aussie/Corgi mix....those ears and the "squat" look (he doesn't look very tall in the 2nd pic) remind me of a Cardigan Corgi....

    check out the ones here...

    Re: Australian Shepherd Mix

    I was doing some research and I came across what are called English shepherds. They look very similar to Australian shepherds but are rare. I think he might actually be an English shepherd mix instead of an Australian shepherd mix. Let me know what you think. Thanks.

    Re: Australian Shepherd Mix

    i would lean more towards the Aussie/Corgi since ES aren't as common of a breed as the Aussie...JMO

    Re: Australian Shepherd Mix

    I see cartigan welsh corgi there (the tri color, the hair and the ears as well as the short thick front legs), aussie shepherd meh yeah maybe... to bring up the size a bit so possible. What are the personality traits like. No one ever includes personality traits when asking about their mixed breeds. Personality goes to pinning down the unknowns. Could it be aussie, could it be spaniel? Don't know with out knowing the personality.

    Re: Australian Shepherd Mix

    He looks very much Like an Aussie mix. I have been around hundreds of Aussies and I show them myself. He also looks like he has a strong degree of Cartigan Corgi in him. That face and those ears are so Corgi. English Shepherds are typically bigger than aussies and why do you think he would be part English? are there a lot of English Shepherds around where he was found?

    do you have a side view? he looks like he could very well be an aussie from that photo but those head curls are kinda funky lol and he looks like he might be a sable too

    At first glance he looks like he's a red Merle but he has a black nose and he's got black tipping on his ears which is why I say I think he's a sable.

    Here a couple more shots of him. That is all the ones I have on my phone right now to send you. See I think he could be a cross. He definitely behaves more like a Shepherd and not a Husky.
