I have an Aussie Chi mix. Her name is Sam. She helped mend my broken heart when my Jake was hit by a car. =( She really did pull me out of it and I am grateful. I never had a girl dog and she's as cute as a button. Her mother was a brown Chihuhua and her father was a black and white Australian shepherd mix. You can't tell, but the black in her coat is a fine combination of both black and brown giving her an almost auburn color when the sun hits her just right.
