My Cassius is routinely identified as a Scottish Terrier, as in, "Whoa, I didn't know Scottish Terriers could be that big!"
In TX they are all Akitas, that is how it works right? That is what I have learned on this thread so far. If enough people tell you your dog is something it is and dogs are different breeds in different states.Your picture proves nothing. All 3 are Dutch Shepherds.
Time spent arguing whether she is or isn't, however small and insignificant as that time may be, is still time wasted. Does your dog know or even care what breed she is? Seriously. If having an indisputable purebred DS is your life's ambition, fine. Save your nickels, start doing some research and then go out and buy one.I would like to show off my rare breed on the dog forums too, but on here I see she will forever be just a common mix.
She is a GODDESS who walks the earth. Her very existence is a marvel to us lesser folk with lesser dogs.I apologize for offending you avie, that was not my intent. I'm just curious, Ginger's coat is about 2cm, how long of coat exactly is a short haired x herder supposed to have? I can tell you her ear, body and head shape were like the other dutch shepherds I've met, but I think her crazy brindle patter creates an illusion of a different head shape that just looks much different in two dimensions. Ginger was within 2 cm of every dimension of them, and the coat was the same length, that's why I wondered if maybe KNPV dutchies locally were maybe alot different. I just wish I could capture her the way she looks in her presence! I would like to show off my rare breed on the dog forums too, but on here I see she will forever be just a common mix. Actually really I'm just so fascinated with her, her abilities she shows at abstract thinking are just astounding, although she is a total goofball.
When in rome..?She is a GODDESS who walks the earth. Her very existence is a marvel to us lesser folk with lesser dogs.
Seriously, dude. I'll meet you on the rare-breed forums with my Dwarf wolf-dog.
No one gives a flying frak if you have a rare breed. A dog is a dog is a dog. Like I said, the only people who will be impressed are idiots, and who cares about the opinions of idiots?
