Vanilla

I broke and got a puppy from the Parker pound. I've had her for over a month now, but I'm stumped to what her breed(s) are.

I named her Vanilla since she ate a few Nilla Wafers on the way back home before she passed out on my lap. She's a bit slow mentally and very slow physically. She tries to run after dogs at the park, but she gets left behind while they trot away.

She's about 3-4 months old and 20+ pounds. Almost completely potty trained, but sometimes she likes to poop in my sister's room.

The shelter said she was an Akita/Shepherd mix online and a Shepherd/Collie mix on her kennel.
Any ideas as to what she's mixed with?

Her markings remind me of a border collie, but I've seen Labrador mixes with white on their faces.

She looks like she's a total sweetheart though, congrats!

Hm... I'll rhyme off some breeds:
Labrador
Hound
Whippet
Corgi'

I'm probably wrong, but she looks like she has a little bit of everything in her! She is just adorable!

I looked up a whippet/lab and she looks similar to a few of those dogs. If she is one of those, she definitely did not inherit any of the speed. Our other dog can trot faster than her at a full out run.

That might change when she grows into her feet though. They are pretty huge for her.

She also looked pretty similar to a chow/shepherd mix too.

She is adorable and what a perfect name you gave her! Her soft brown coloring even looks like the color of a vanilla wafer! Love it!

My sister was doing some more searching today and found that she's almost identical to the Smooth Coated Collie.

It gets to the 45-75 pound range that we were projecting and her conformation is almost identical to all the puppies we looked at.

I see Collie in her.. that tail is just like every Dachshund I've ever had, though. I think she's a adorable whatever she is! Those ears are probably very expressive, I bet.

Does she bark a lot? Some breeds are more talkative then others, it might help you figure it out.
