    Another one of those breed threads, as CD's Jones reminds me of Rider quite a bit.

    We rescued Rider through HerD of Wyoming. They guesstimated him between 9 months to a year. I honestly think he's a bit older. They said he was probably an ACD/BC/Aussie? I honestly think he may have JRT or Corgi? Halp?

    He is pretty soft, biddable, energetic and BOUNCY! High prey drive. Uhm, cuddly... Fairly velcro. He is very built in the front end, has a barrel chest, huge neck. Teeny, tiny head and feets. I haven't weighed or measured him, but my guess is that he is about 35-40 pounds.

    I'm not too too good at breeds, but he looks just like a JRT in that last picture!

    I think ACD/BC. He looks very BC, but the coloring is more ACD influenced, and that would make for the heavier chest/neck. BC's can be very prey driven.

    No Corgi in there, he would have short legs, don't even see it else where. My guess would be "Border Jack"? They've been breeding them for flyball so that's a possibility. His head actually reminds me of a Fox terrier.

    My guess would be ACD x terrier. Maybe ACD x BC x terrier.

    I definitely think there is Fox Terrier in there.
