    A friend just got this pup, but is trying to tell everyone its a shetland sheepdog - which it very obviously is not.

    He's a very pretty mutt.

  5. Has the look of a Cavalier or other spaniel mixed with a border collie. Hard telling not knowing. Sometimes the mix of two breeds makes it look like another breed that it isn't. It sure is cute though!

    My first thought was Border Collie mix, Then i was thinking Aussie Shepherd mix.. Then I thought maybe sheltie mix? Could be anything in that area. Post photos in about 4 months, i bet when it's older, you'll have abetter idea

    i agree with the cavalier, but arent thier ears longer? maybe its a mix. kind of looks like a papillion but it looks too big. how old is it? how much does it weigh?

    Looks like a Papillon crossed with a Pomeranian. Dont let the size fool you, both Paps and Poms are supposed to be very small dogs but there are 15+ pound Paps and Poms. He's super dooper cute!!

    Could also be a Miniature Australian Shepherd mix or even purebred.
