    Kelpie or Kelpie/GSD Mix?

    Hi

    I'm new here, and this is my first post.

    A couple of months ago I adopted 'Joanie' from GSROC, a rescue organization. She is about a year old, sweet tempered, and smart as a whip.

    So my question is, do you think she is a Kelpie or a Kelpie / GSD mix?

    She stands about 20.1/2" at the shoulder, and turns the scale at around 49 lbs, which would be at the high end for a Kelpie but she certainly behaves and sounds like one.

    I guess I could do a DNA test, but I'm not sure how reliable they are - I've heard conflicting opinions.

    Here are some photos - I'd appreciate your thoughts

    She is beautiful! TBH she could be all sorts of things! I see what you mean by the kelpi or GSD sugesstions but she could also be a mix of a whole range of things that just turned her into gorgeous!

    Whatever she is, she is an absolute stunner! :007:
    As Catrin say, she could have a few more breeds in there! If the DNA tests arent expensive, you could always give one a go - just for fun :)

    I would love or get mine DNA tested. I think my brothers dogs, Camba, cost about £60. Wen its cheaper and better I'd like mine done. :)

    Hi,

    I can see where you are getting Kelpie cross GSD from. The dogs trainers where I got my boy reckon he is Kelpie cross GSD possibly with a bit of husky in there.

    Either way your girl is gorgeous.
