Hi everyone,

me and my wife got a puppy from the shelter 3 weeks ago and have forever been trying to figure out what she is mixed with so we known how big she’s going to get. Her name is Hallie and her mom is an Aussie cattle dog but she was found on a reservation so her dad is unknown.
Her weight at just under 12 weeks is 20lbs, I’ve looked online and there’s calculators that say she may grow up to a 60-70lb dog (don’t know how accurate that is) but I’ve attached a few photos to see what you guys think. One of the pics is her compared to a 2 year old Entlebucher mountain dog.
I’d love to know how tall and how much she will weigh, I love big dogs so I’m kinda hoping she will be!

Oh, my gosh, is she ever cute! No help on figuring out the rst of the mix, but if she's part ACD, expect her to also be part alligator and/or snapping turtle. They are a very mouthy breed.

Yep, you’re right! She does like to use her mouth a lot. I buy her every toy she could ever want but somehow my shoes and socks are the best still. I read online that at this age and weight she could be anywhere up to 70lbs... her mum was pretty small, maybe around 40 at most. A lot of people say some sort of mountain dog or German shepherd. Maybe I should get a DNA!

The puppy has some big feet and thick legs. I would expect a large breed. Also, mouthing is very common at 12 weeks since puppies will start to lose their puppy teeth around this age. Be sure to have plenty of chew toys, especially for the next 4 months. Pick up and put away things that the puppy should not be chewing on so you can set your dog up for success. If the dog chews on shoes that you left out, it is your fault.
