Could my dog be a dutch shepherd?

Postby sargent » February 10th, 2014, 5:31 pm

So I adopted a dog (not from a shelter but from someone giving away their puppy) They told me that she was an Australian Shepherd however she does not look like an Aussie one bit. She is tall with a short coat and large neck ruff, is a red brindle color. She weighs about 75 lbs. She looks extremely similar to a dutch shepherd except for her ears are not erect and she doesn't have a mask on her face.
Here are some pictures:

She doesn't look Dutchy to me. Most definitely not an Aussie though. Cute dog though.
Here are some pictures of Dutch Shepherds.

Pretty dog but still does not look like a purebred Dutch Shepherd. The brindle coloring is striking though.

She does not look one bit dutchie to me. Brindle happens is a lot of breeds.

All dutches have a mask and upright ears, btw, no matter what other collaring they have. No neck ruff either, unless they are long haired.

She actually looks like a Smooth Collie mix. Being brindle, I suppose she could be a Smooth Collie/Dutch Shepherd mix.
