    We've been told Lab/GermanShep/AustralianShep/BordieCol/Beagle/Bernese by those who have seen her and know dogs...
    Waht do you think? She's about 60 pounds.

    Maybe Border Collie mixed with Australian Shepherd, although Border Collies do come in smooth coats.

    Your Bella could be a twin to my former foster Roadie. Roadie's mom was a boxer and his dad was extremely questionable. I swear if Bella was a male I would be wondering if you had my boy!

    I see more Smooth Collie than Border Collie, considering the size. Swissies tend to be pretty rare but she does remind me of one...

    Lab...no, GSD...no, Aussie...possibly, border collie...quite possibly, beagle...no, bernese...no but she does have that coloring. GSM is definately a possibility. She probably has three or more breeds in her. I'm leaning toward the aussie/border/GSM.

    I see more of Smooth Collie mixed with Aussie too. She's really to big to be a BC.

    Kat, she reminds me of a BC--definitely. The only thing I see Swissy is her coloring, but I'm not terribly failiar with the breed.

    Can you pose her for some stacked (standing) pictures? And a couple of larger head-shots? That would help exponentially. :)

    I would call that a variety called "darn good looking dog." She is quite lovely, and looks like she knows it!

    I don't see any smooth collie whatsoever, in her build or her head. She looks mostly like a border collie or aussie, something along those lines.

    Beautiful dog!
