Some sort of terrier would be my guess. Norwich, Norfolk, Cairn, Irish, Yorkshire, or a combination. Your dog looks small (?) in the photos, so perhaps a combination of terriers in the 10 - 25 pound range.

I agree, she has that look of many of those terrier breeds with a harsh, wiry outer coat and a long undercoat. But I also see this look happen sometimes in poodle mixes that don't inherit the poodle curls sometimes - what's her coat texture like? Soft? A but hard and wiry? A bit of both?

Yeah, I think she's definitely some kind of terrier mix ^^. I would probably describe her size as small-medium (20-30lbs), she's a lot bigger than all of our other [small] dogs.

Her coat is pretty wiry, there's not a lot of softness to it.

Yup, wiry would definitely put me firmly on the side of one of the hairier terriers! Be interesting to see what she tested as for sure, if only the good DNA tests weren't so darn expensive.
