    It's Sweetie again. In case you missed her first thread here's a bio: She was pulled from a shelter in Oklahoma. A little about her- Her name is Sweetie and she is 10 months old approximately, spayed, and a whopping 15 inches at the shoulder already! She is kind of aloof in nature, but very snuggly once she warms up to you. She's a big chewer, very smart and always into something. She is also VERY high drive and very active, so her foster mom is looking for a sport home for her preferably. She'd definitely be good at agility or flyball!

    We're kind of wondering if there may be something like a bit of BC in there too.

    So, mixed breed or just a very big papillon?

    whatever she is she sure is cute. I'm going to guess that there is some border collie mixed in there...

    I dunno about drive or eye. She's got a LOT of energy. (Tho that could just be the pap part of her showing through ;) )

    Her face and eyes and muzzle seem different than a pap's. i'm not sure but I definitely think something larger is in there. (Other than the fact that she's bigger than Trey)

    It's also good to remember that Summer actually will stalk things very low to the ground already. When she is in prey drive mode, she gets a very slow, cautious stalk. I have only a couple pictures of it, but she's hilarious and so non-toy dog at times.

    I'm gonna go with Pap/Eskie. Those are popular, similar breeds that share enough characteristics that if you mixed them neither would alter that much (ears tails, coat etc).

    Eskie's possible, but Eskies are ay + a dilution factor, which I'm pretty sure is dominant over black, no?

    I keep seeing smaller and smaller BC at trials here. She looks like a small BC, or possibly BC mix.

    I dunno, but I really really really want her. *sigh* She's perfect. High drive, smallish size, but still larger, gorgeous.... If only I could have another right now! Maybe in a year they'll have another one like her.
