Thank you for accepting me to your forum : )

I posted as a guest but got long winded so will keep this one “short an sweet” just like our 3 month old BC mix “Rosie”.

Posting a few pictures of her and I appreciate any thoughts on her mix or any helpful comments as she is our first BC after admiring them for years.

We know her legs are a little shorter so some smaller breed mix possibly but that’s about all we know other than she also has bow legs (think it is cute though and no hip displacia : )

Any guesses on her final weight?

Too cute!

Here in Texas we often see other herding breeds mixed with corgis.  No way to be certain in Rosie's case, but this would account for the short legs.

Welcome to the Boards. Rosie is a cutie.

BTW, hip dysplasia is only definitively diagnosed by Xrays. For OFA Xrays, the dog must be 2 years old IIRC. For PennHip Xrays, puppies as young as Rosie's age can be evaluated, but there are far fewer vets certified to do PennHip Xrays.

I think she will be okay but thank you.

i got our 15 year old chow chow mix back on his feet(vet said he wouldn’t make it past 3 or 4) with a lot of patience holding him up till he quivered everyday and lots of protein & a baby aspirin for his pain.

Drove home a few weeks later & he was up on his own power wagging his tail to greet me : )

i will do whatever is needed : )

Never having had a BC I thought they would deal with the Southern heat & humidity better but Rosie was panting on the steps (yes had water) sitting at the door.

This was her shortly after getting into the a/c lol

Please excuse the dirty carpet but someone is going to wear our vacuum cleaner out!

She is still a pup. No youngsters (humans, dogs, cats, etc.) can thermoregulate as well as the adults. Yes, you will have to be aware of temperature extremes until she matures more.

In my house, we call that pose "doing a border collie"!  It seems to be a favourite of my boys.

Well after a long run of 100 plus heat indexes it is going down to 78f tomorrow! Woo hoo!

Will have to take Rosie out there for some fetch or a trip to the Park & supervising my work on my old car and see if she handles the temps better.

if not, alway ready to give her breaks & of course the ole chubby belly rubs lol

Thank you everyone for the info and smiles : )
