    This is my family dog who actually just passed away (at the ripe old age of 15). We do know what her mother was, but dad is a total mystery (I have a few guesses). I'm curious to see what people would guess for her! After some guesses I'll tell what mom was :)

    Body shape reminds me of a cattle dog with...border collie? I'm really bad at this.

    And sorry to hear she passed away. She was really beautiful :(

    Alright, here is the funny thing. Her mother was a purebred Great Swiss Mountain Dog. Accidental litter, they didn't know who the dad was. There was one pup in the litter that looked exactly like the mom, a few males that looked like longhaired GSDs, and then Juniper - with her freckles everywhere. I always thought Cattle Dog, based on her looks and behavior, but none of the other puppies seemed like they had a Cattle dog dad. Maybe multiple sires for the litter?

    Oh, and I should mention, she was pretty small, too. About 45/50 lbs.
