    Default Replace with what breed?

    Just for fun, let's post a pic of a crossbred dog (who's breeding we generally know) and a bit about temperament/traits ....and then, everyone else post suggestions of purebreds that could have been purchased and met most, if not all, physical characteristics, and the temperament/traits too.

    Thought this might be quite interesting given the other topic about "what characteristics are they after in a x when they coul dget them in a pure".

    Who wants to post a mutt first?

    ETA: When I say meeting physically, I mean build, colouring - the whole package

    OK not real sure about breeding.

    Cattle dog x (short coat bc x kelpie) is my best guess

    Physically -
    medium sized dog 22kg
    fast - but not quite as fast as whippett, or kelpie, but faster than some BC but not all of them.
    agile - can turn very tight circles and frequently uses this to her advantage.
    short coat - but sheds, has undercoat, always seems warm but likes to snuggle sometimes.
    webbed feet
    very pretty black and white ticking with black patches on eye and tail.
    sensitive tummy - cannot eat bones or certain dog food without getting the runs.

    temperment
    smart - very good at training humans.
    a bit anxious or insecure - likes to know where the boss is.
    bossy/demanding - quite happy to take over if you let her.
    uber friendly, knows doggy body language, uses to her advantage, rolls over for every dog. Gets along even with the fearful ones. Never starts a fight, not too keen to finish one. Will defend herself against persistant attack or extreme doggy rudeness.
    loves water, swims well
    likes to chase things
    likes to round stuff up.
    can be/must be trained to ignore joggers, bicycles, cars and tractor mowers.
    likes to bark at dinner time. Is quite chatty. Also sings if kibble goes under the couch or some dog won't play.
    will alert bark if strangers come, will keep safe distance (occasional sneak attack from behind) very good at ducking punishment.
    healthy appetite, not picky about food, will work for kibble.
    gets along best with other farm dog bitsas, and dogs that like to run. Not real good with Rottweilers or dogs with very thick ruffs that play too hard and can't feel anything.
    likes to lick old mens's ears.

    Tessa...............Golden Retriever cross Border Collie....Both pure Breds, accidental breeding at a farm, owner ditched the puppies at Rescue at five weeks

    Tessa works stock, puts in the fowl at night and will work and push sheep with us. Not to sure about cattle, but great around the horses. She is FAST as........Will keep up with the horses on a ride. And is very adventurous, always out front on a walk.

    Tessa is a titled Obedience dog and also Agility. And has just started Rally Obedience

    She also works as a Therapy dog by visiting the elderly

    Great companion dog, very smart, easy to train.

    Also does Tracking. And we use her in our water Rescue Training........She can pull a person in all by herself

    I do know that this exact cross is bred by the Search and Rescue people in both NZ and California.

    Also does tricks.....Speaks and says "hello" which sounds like the human "hello".Not much Tessa cannot do. I love training her. But Annabelle our newfie, except for the Stock-work (she prefers to chase chickens) can do pretty much the same.

    Not anxious, very social, but can be bitchy to rude puppies/young dogs. Never starts a fight. Loves to snuggle. great friend of our newfies, even her past enemy, Annabelle. So she must be forgiving.......

    I think the Gundog cross workdog makes for a great all rounder if you are into training. I know that in the future i will be on the lookout in rescue for similar crosses.

    I also think an untrained cross like this, could be the dog from hell, out of control, chasing everything .....

    Mind you I still think training makes a dog...A lot of dogs can be made into great dogs and a lot of dogs can be made into bad dogs by their owners. I just know that from working with Rescue dogs. Start of like sh** and turn into great dogs, a pleasure to own. It is not all about the Breed, though that does help sometimes.

    Dogs like the ones above their purebred counter parts would be standard working breeds, cattle dog, border collie etc.

    It's the designer dogs I'm interested in as they are the "problem dogs", woking dogs, both crosses and pure already have a purpose.
