Here is a picture of one of my dogs Tilly

She has been purposely line bred (24" to the shoulder and weighs 55lb)
There are 5 well recognized breeds in her ancestry
can anybody guess what they are? (sorry about the quality of the photo)
All the best

She's obviously a lurcher or longdog of some stripe, right? (Pun intended, I'm sorry, I couldn't help it.) I'm going to guess two of the three are whippet and BC, maybe with something wire-coated in there too? Deerhound, maybe?

I was going to guess Border Collie and Greyhound, since 24 inches is pretty tall! Maybe she has some Great Dane or Borzoi?

Correct guesses so far
Whippet (quickness and agility)
Border Collie (inteligence and trainability)
Bull terrier (gameness and aggresion)
Greyhound (speed)
Only 1 left
Another clue: Its a sighthound used for its stamina

Good luck coming up with a cutesy designer-dog name for that.

Border Bullwhip Hounduki? Grey Whippier Cooki? Bullwhip Coluki Hound?
