Hello all! I would love everyone's feedback on what breed(s) you think this little girl may be. 5 days ago I rescued this sweet little thing from the middle of a busy road out here in Alabama. No one has claimed her, no one seems to be looking for her and she fits in so well with my pack that we have decided to keep her. She was infested with fleas, riddled with worms and slightly under weight when I found her (not micro-chipped or spayed). We think she may have been dumped due to a few behavioral issues, but they are all easily fixed with a little training. She is now all clear on the pests and has put on 5lbs in just 5 days! She is approximately 5 months old and weighs 20lbs today. Super smart too!

I used to use PhotoBucket, but now I just upload them directly from my computer. When you reply choose "go advanced", then under "manage attachments" you can add photos there.

Use imgur. Photobucket charges a bunch of money now if you want to hotlink.

Yes I can see the pictures very cute! I have no idea what breeds might be in there, but I'm going to throw out part Beagle? Maybe part Spaniel of some kind?

I'm assuming you put out ads, asked a the the shelters, etc. and tried to find the dog's owners.

Border Collie or Australian Shepherd mix possibly? Whatever she is, she's pretty.

Hm... I could see some kind of herding breed and/or hound, too. But that tail is so thin! I'm going to go out on a limb and say there's a bit of boxer in her somewhere.

Beagle keeps coming to my mind too, mainly due to the coloration and tail. Spaniel, maybe but I don't see as much of that in her although she does have true webbed feet as do Field Spaniels and Irish Water Spaniels.

Absolutely, and not to mention I stopped at almost all homes within a 5 mile radius of where I found her to see if anyone was missing a pup or recognized her at all and nothing. I have such a hard time believing that anyone would abandon such a sweet, smart and good natured little thing. However, there are far too many people who also just don't realize the work that goes into such a cute bundle of energy. She was not house broken, had obvious parasites, seems to never have been on a leash, no manners and is teething so is very mouthy. Possibly whomever originally had her may have just thrown in the towel. She is super trainable (and a real quick study) so it would seem that whomever had her didn't try or just plain didn't know how to train her.

Originally I was thinking Aussie too. We are Aussie people and if you gave her longer hair and different coloration she looks very similar to her new big brother (apart from the tail of course). She does have at least one of only 18 breeds mixed in as she has true webbed feet.

Her ear hair and ear shape really lends credence to a shepherd of some sort and webbed feet could make her part Redbone Coonhound (which are pretty common out this way) and they tend to have long thin tails so...maybe!
