mseaver Posted March 3 Report Share Posted March 3 The female dog on the left of the accompanying photo is a registered Miniature American Shepherd (nee: Mini Aus Shep). The vestiges of her naturally bobbed tail curve up and forward, Spitz-like. She stands perhaps 15-16" at the withers and weighs in the m-30lb's. The male on the right stands 20" at the withers. In the photo (l-Nov/22), the male was 18mo and obese at 50lbs. Now (e-Mar/23) he weighs 45lbs and remains on a gentle downward track towards a more appropriate wgt. A dog novice whose first language is not English adopted the dog on the right as an 8wo pup from a rural breeder. The owner believes that the breeder declared the pup to be an unregistered pure-bred BC. The pup's siblings, sire, dam and grand dam were on site at the time of the adoption. When you study physical characteristics (such as: muzzle length, folded ears, leg length, Spitz-like tail) of the male on the right, does he appear to be a BC to you?
