He's also growing into a very border collie-ish looking dog, at least insofar as structure goes. That could still change though.

 

It's mostly in the facial markings that I see ACD coming through.

 

Pretty much, me too.  I can see both in his behavior and appearance, in various ways.  People involved in either or both breed pretty much the same.

 

General public?  He's a beagle. 

Which just cracks me up.

If I were taking a very quick look at him, I'd see beagle or beagle mix there. But anything longer than that I'd start to think cattle dog, or that ilk.

In all honesty, he just confuses a lot of people.  Half of the world seems to think he's about 10-12 weeks old and ergo huge, the other half thinks he's an adult small dog.  BC people in general see BC (when actually watching him do stuff as opposed to stand around), ACD people see ACD, largely in his face, and yeah, the fading coloration/saddle make people see beagle/hound.   The odd person for reasons that confound me REALLY think he's a GSD X. 

 

Honestly, I just laugh - not mocking, but amused.    I am going to quickly reach the point of responding to 'what is he?' with 'a dog' though, just because exhaustion.  I'll make a point to do it kindly though :P

 

Mostly, he's just a great puppy.  A slightly strange puppy sometimes but a great puppy.

And in fairness a LOT of what people sees also varies on what his ears are doing.  Which is 'whatever I want, from dropped to completely pricked and since there are two ears in any combination therein.

Speaking of puppy - Jovi, he is absolutely coming to St. Francis, if you're going to that trial.

"Are you SURE that dog isn't a beagle?"


With all due respect and recognition that any dog can and will stalk-
