I love the movie, Benji, the Hunted. I grew up with it and I know it doesn't have much dialogue as the other movies, but it's my absolute favorite. I love the music and am not scared of the black wolf (yay!). But every time I watch the film, I can't help but think what breeds are in Benji?

His owner said (dog's name was Higgins and later his daughter Benjean--which was in this film) both were: Border Terrier, Mini Poodle, Cocker Spaniel, Schnauzer mix. I'm not sure if I can see any of those breeds in him or is he just an all around mutt?

So I have a picture of him (online I found) and thought what do you all think he is?

From the Benji website:

"Benji is a female mixed breed. Owner-creator Joe Camp believes there might be some Tibetan Terrier, and perhaps a bit of spaniel because she spreads out on the floor like a bear rug with her back legs splayed out behind her, a trait of spaniels."

The Benji he is referring to is the original Benji's daughter.

a mix of mix is not going to show distinct breeds, keep mixing you eventually end up with generic yellow dog, my friend has a known mix of 4 breeds and the dog does not look anything like any of them lol. that said when I look an Benji I see Border Terrier and Spanial easy.

I know, thanks Abbylynn! That's how I got onto Higgins' breed too; do any of you like the Benji films?
I honestly don't believe I ever got to watch one all the way through ... always interrupted or such. :( I just think the dog is adorable!
