At the shelter, we got a few sheets with a bunch of different dogs on it that we would call a pit mix, a lab mix, a shepherd mix, and the DNA results are listed at the bottom. We would only guess right about 20% of the time. There is no way to know what breed your dog is, a guess is just a guess.

But, for what it's worth, my guess is heeler mix.

It DEFINITELY looks like there's some pit in there! The upper body and muzzle seem to give some away

Thanks everyone! It's fun to hear your responses!!
Her name is Maybe, because 'maybe' she's a heeler, 'maybe' she's a pit, 'maybe' she'll come when I call, 'maybe' she won't. etc etc etc.

My guess is heeler, pit and border collie or kelpie.

I've also wondered if there were a bird dog in the mix. She sure loves to hunt.

Who knows, she's probably papillion and german sheperd for all I know! lol

Any other guesses?

I definitely see the pit in her! And possibly some German Shepard?
I'm definitely not a breed expert but the pit really jumps out at me!

She looks to have some pitbull . Strangely enough, she reminds me of a Basenji.

funny you said Basenji. When I 1st started fostering her, she wouldn't bark, and she looks the part, so we used to say she was a basenji mix. But, where she came from probably wouldn't have such a regal breed.
Now she speaks...mainly in roo-roo language, which, I think pits do a lot.

It may just be me but I have a pitbull, and I don't see any bully...

My dad had an Austrialian Cattle Dog (aka blue healer) pit bull mix that looked almost the same as yours

My guess would be some Heeler there.
Bet she could go all day on a trail and come back to camp with energy to burn.
She's a cutie!
