ID this dog for me

#1
Hi troops,
I'm just back from my holidays (yes, it was great thanks!), but while we were away my wife and kids found a dog which they fell for and now they'd like me to buy one just like it.

I thought it might be a Sheltie or something similar, but I'm at a loss as to what it is (or even if it is an actual breed rather than a mongrel), so if anyone here could help I'd be most gratefull.

Cheers
T_T

looks like there was a golden retriever and a german shepherd dog in the woodpile at the very minimum. ;)

Is that taxi for me? already?
Nope, it's definitely ginger. Trust me, I'm an expert on this.

It's a Heinz job.

Get down to your nearest RSPCA/Dogs Trust and am sure they'll fall in love with at least one dog there too.

My personal preference has been to avoid the recognised breeds - as by design, they all have problems bred in them - for problems, read vet bills.

Good luck!

I'll bow down to your expertise on ginger "dogs".

Our Insurance company would agree with you - thousands of pounds spent on our Westy, Haggis (£3.5k on 1 rear leg knee joint, the other is on its way out). Our other dog, a Westy/ Yorky mix is fecking unbreakable.



The Unbreakable Cookie, who's looks would have knicker gussets hitting the floor if I was single, and/or in a position to take advantage of this.

And here was me thinking that this thread was going to be about Jordans latest reincarnation.. oh well...

Ref the mutt... deffo a Bitsa....

And as with the others, I agree... had a pedigree Lab that was the business but had more faults than a Toyota... but then the ex brought a Bitsa home and his head wiring was well and truly fried... so not all RSPCA/Dogs Trust mutts are perfect.. but get down to one of there places and choose one from there.. for a small amount you can have a friend that will love you and shit on your garden occasionally !

looks like a golden retriever - border collie cross to me. Best bet might be to check with the local adoption group.

Also a Golden rescue group might steer you to someone who got a surprise when the pups arrived. Good luck.

Note, I live in a neighborhood where Goldens seem to be the standard dog although I have always had Springers. You hear of good and bad in very breed but I have never heard of anyone getting a bad Golden. Nice dogs.

Note: you might want to repost on the ARRSE Kennel Club thread.

Lots of doggy types there

I would say it's bait used by cannibals. Sounds like your family were lucky.

Too much hair, you'll get through six vacuum cleaners a year. Have a Poodle.
