    Can you tell me what kind of dog this is? I have a female that looks just like her. From what I can tell, mine is a Border Collie mix.

      We did a doggie DNA test that said she was Cocker Spaniel and German Shorthair Pointer. She weighs all of 15 pounds, so German Shorthair – say what?? She does have a big attitude though…:-)

    @Amy and Jennifer – yes her ears are longer. My Ellie was rescued out of Hurricane Katrina. I’ve looked everywhere to see what she is.

    Had a cocker spaniel mix that could have been a twin of that gorgeous little girl. (Mother was a cocker, father was an anonymous handsome stranger.

    Pamela – there are “doggie DNA” kits now. Most vets have them. They take a sample of blood, send it to a lab, and the results are supposed to tell you what percentage of which breeds make up the dog. HOWEVER, I don’t know anyone who’s tried it, so I don’t know how accurate they are. Anyone know?

    @April – went to Heritage Canine DNA and results came back inconclusive. $125. Not happy with them. My Ellie had brothers and sisters but we never found them. :(

    I got a Heritage test done on my mutt. He looks just like Princess Nellie, but with slightly shorter ears and he came back as 25% Miniature Poodle, 25% Cocker Spaniel and 50% Havanese.

    Pamela, blessings to you for rescuing a dog! I have mixed breed dogs also. I tell people they are 100% pure mutt, and I love them!!!

    Pretty girl. Looks exactly like a cocker mix I had for 14 years (3/4 cocker and 1/4 sheltie). Loved the ears. She used to climb into my suitcase while packing. Picture makes me miss her all over again, though I now have GSP’s.
