Thread: What breed

  1. #1

    Default What breed

    Hi all

    I have been wondering what kind of breed my dog is. I purchased her from the RSPCA about 2 years ago. The info that was given was Bull Arab cross, I do know that these dogs are hunting dogs but I would never take her out hunting, she is a family dog, very smart and a wonderful temperament.

    I have been wondering what she is crossed with for a while and it is really bugging me that I dont know. Someone told me that sometimes the RSPCA fabricates information if they do not know, such as the breed, age etc. The same person who owns a couple Bull Arabs and has told me that they dont think she has any Bull Arab in here at all. However i do see the curled tail as a triat of a Bull Arab also the spots on her belly and nose. some Bull Arabs are white and black......I am lost. I have been searching for pictures on google to see what kind of dog resembles mine. I have thought Collie x Staffy but i really have no idea. Perhaps one of you will have an idea.

    there is something around the face that has gsd to it.
    hard to tell the piebald is distracting from seeing things.

    I see some cattle dog. Lol hard to tell with this one.

    It's hard for the RSPCA to know age, breed, history of dogs that have come in as strays so they have to do the best they can!

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Looks a lot like some border collies - the short hair farm bred ones that I know.

    But she's a lot heavier than those. Is she a bit overweight or stocky like a Staffordshire Bull Terrier?

    The shape of her face is quite narrow tho which is unlikely with a Cattle dog or SBT x.

    Bull terriers also have the piebald as do the bull arabs (which are really bitsas too), and tenterfield terriers, great danes - which are in some Bull Arab lines - and failed (wrong spot distribution) dalmations and some ACDxBC (mine). But it's hard to imagine an ACD with no ticking. I've only seen one - it was an ACD x Dalmation - bear in mind ACD already have dalmation in them - he was the exact same shape and coat length as a traditional ACD - and the exact same spotiness of a Dalmation.

    border collie, kelpie, staffy mix at a minimum. No real bull arab in there she's too small and narrow in the head for that type

    you have to also take peoples online advertisements with a grain of salt ... you would be surprised what people think they're dogs are or call them. Straight bull terrier x cattle dog in that advert I doubt it

    I'm not surprised what people think their dogs are, as you can see, the website is boar dogs, a hunting site, a lot of mixed dogs on there...just because it says one thing does not mean it will look like what is called, I put the advert to show that exactly what you just said, it doesn't look like a straight cross, just as a similar case. This is my point.
