What breed is my dog?

I rescued a dog a couple months ago and I am unsure of her breed. Someone found the mother pregnant in the woods at 7 months. I think she is part Icelandic sheepdog because both the mother (who is kind of small) and the puppies have a curled tail. She has coloring that is similar to German Shepard or Bernese. (White on forehead, stomach, paws, tail, and darker ears). Someone said she has habits similar to her akita so that is also a possibility. She likes playing and walking with other dogs, she tips over her bowl, likes following you, sits and walks sideways, ears go back when she is excited, fast eater, lays with her back paws fully extended on the ground. All thoughts are appreciated!

looks like a Shepherd dog mix, but as long as it is a puppy it is difficult to say.
best way to find out, is to let it grow, but even then it is often just guessing. You'll never know for sure.

give it time, you'd be surprised what they look like at 4, 6, 8, and 12 months! It's hard to guess a breed at a young age without knowing much about the parents.

You didn't say what breed her mother was.

And how small is kind of small?

Best guess St Bernard mix or mountain dog by the coat. Very cute multi-breed
