    it is odd...well the mother is short haired. Unless there is a pom somewhere in the previous generations maybe it skipped into this ones genes. The only thing that is similar to the kelpie is the colour of the fur (the white patches are from the mum)

    I dunno about the Pom side - it's too big already. Ie a full sized pom is not much bigger than tiny.

    So a dog can travel several km to jump a fence to mate...

    And a litter can have more than one father.

    Glad the pup is staying with its mum a bit longer. How come they don't know how old it is?

    interesting.. Is there any way I can check for sure what breed it is? I was hoping it wouldn't grow too big (no larger than a small/medium size) but looking at it's paws...I don't know, they seem a little big.

    Well the mother of the pup is my aunts dog and I couldn't remember when it was born lol (I'd say it's 6/7/8 weeks old? Not 100% sure..) the mother is tiny! She's like a chihuahua x jack or foxie (short hair)

    Love to see a pic of mum.............
    There is a place in America that says they can do DNA test of parentage on mixed breed dogs not sure how correct they get it though.

    There is a place in oz that does dna tests too but their results are a little bit unreliable at the moment. Ie they've returned results like "significant rottweiler" for a 4th generation "bench mark" coolie dog.

    Ask your vet. Cost is somewhere between $75 and $150.

    It's a wonder the mother didn't explode. The fluffiness could be a throwback on the chi line or just puppy fluff - and baby cattle dogs are often quite fluffy.

    I think i'll ask the vet when I take her in. well when i saw the 3 pups when they were first born they were normal short haired looking pups. there is one black and white pup which has short hair (the mother is black and white) and then theres a fully black one which is very fluffy and then there's my brown and white one which is also fluffy.

    is there a way i can tell how large she will be? I've heard the feet theory, i know jack russells have solid legs...can you judge how big she might grow? as i said, the mother is tiny!

    A bit of this and a bit of that.
    Wouldn't bother with the BITSA test.
    Cute though.

    molly33 the reason id like to get a rough idea is because I wanted to know if it would grow too big, as it would be an indoor dog. (I was after a small/medium dog) hoping it's shedding won't be too bad either.

    I would hazzard a guess at saying that pup wil not get bigger than medium size & as for shedding well jc & foxie's have a course thick hair shaft that dose shed quite alot & clings to clothes. I loved my old jc(Tilly lived to 20) but her hair drove me nuts, didn't help that she was white either. But you get used to it & it isn't large amouts just constant.
    But really I am only guessing as I can not run my hands over your pup or see the parents which would help answer these questions alot better.
