I unpacked Mom’s suitcase so I could use it as a bed – even though I already have three. I am not ashamed. – Princess Nellie. Princess Nellie was rescued from the streets of Mexico, and ever since, she can’t get enough of the Luxurious Life. When she looks at me with those big brown eyes, I’ll give her anything – including my best suitcase.
She is a beautiful dog, can’t be mad at her
Thank you! It’s true, it’s impossible to be mad at her for more than a nanosecond. Sigh. She is a Princess, after all.
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.
She is some kind of Spaniel mix, maybe Cocker and Cavalier? I call her a Very Rare Mexican Spaniel – the only one in the US 🙂
Thank You! for rescuing her!
She’s beautiful! She looks like a cocker spaniel 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…:-)
Pamela,from what I can see in the pic, gotta be cocker spaniel in there some how, look at the ears!
@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!!!
Can I have your pawtograph?
Princess Nellie sez, Yes, woof!
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.
