We where told it was a chihuahua before I went to get it, Obviously it's not. lol Other than that, I think it is a sheltie mix of sorts.
I love the way Brenna is standing proud. lol
It actually does look like a long haired Chihuahua. Looks just like a purebred. If it is a mix the Chihuahua is dominant.
yes the deer head and the apple head...perhaps you are seeing som'thing I am not...because I see niether of those two skull types...Iam seeing a small spitz. Also that dog looks like it has a heavy, thick double coat and long hair chis have thin whispy hair.The head is spot on for the pet lines of Chi. The show type have a real bubble head. And Chi's can range in size from the tiny 6lb or less to as big as 25lb. The breed standards call for a 6lb dog, but as all show people know that is fad breeding that dictates that. the larger pups often go the route of pet. The smaller ones with the correct skull, which doesn't seal into adulthood usually go the show route.
If she is a mix, I'd call it as a long haired Chihuahua and a a Border mix.
I've seen 25 lb Chi's Waiting beside the ring while their siblings presented for conformation shows. Not arguing (everyone is here is quick to cry arguing) just telling it like it really is.I'm going to agree, not much Chi in him at all. I have never seen a 20Lb chi before either.
