We rescued this dog when it was a puppy in Israel. We were told by a lot of people that it is a Canaan dog, which kind of makes sense, except it seems like its torso is too long and ears are too big to be a Canaan dog. I've also read that Canaan dogs do not have a very uniform look, so who knows.

Does anyone else have any ideas?

Looks like a border collie to me, but considering location Canaan Dog probably makes more sense.

Here is someone's purebred Canaan dog from Israel:


Looks pretty darn similar; does his tail curl over his back when he holds it up?

Well, the tail doesn't seem to curl up as much as that one, and my dog's nose seems to be a lot longer. But you're right, that does look like a very close relative.

I think she might be too big to be a border collie, but her coloring is definitely similar.

Thanks for the responses, guys.
