Question Anybody have a GSD/Cattle Dog Mix?

So the other day I went to my friend's house, I took Darko with me, and she told me if he was mixed with a blue heeler because he has some blue heeler spots on his chest. So I wanted to know what you guys think and if anybody has a GSD/Blue Heeler mix that I can see pic of.

Yes -- there are two of us that I know of. Go to the photos and look up SHAY (that's my boy -- I got the stumpy tail) and KYO (that's Mel's). So maybe you make three of us -- they all look like GSDs with slight differences. My boy is actually quite small (about 20 pounds at 15 weeks -- but he had some growth limiting factor like really really bad worms). KYO is quite a bit older and you can see some age progression. They are fabulous and SMART. Mine is a heeler/header to my Aussie if you can believe that but protective like the GSD too. Keep us posted.

The shelter where I got Dallas had her listed as heeler/GSD but as she grew I am not so sure of the GSD part. She maxed out at 45lbs. I love her to death. She is awesome.
P.S. I am at work now and have a limited picture selection but here are a couple of her.

Cara Fusinato: I just saw the pictures and the pups look great, yours looks so cute with his little tail. And I'll be sure to keep you guys posted.

Kris10: Thanks I choose it because his fur looks/feels like a black chinchilla's and because I like the movie Donnie Darko

cshepherd9: Your girl is gorgeous, I love her color

We have that same belly ticking and ticking on the shoulders and hocks. We do have about three or four light spots on the chest underside. I will post more pix soon as he is growing up FAST.

Ticking is the color where it is light underneath and tipped in a different color. That's where you get that beige/grey effect on the belly rather than the deep black or light tan alone. We have it on the belly and on the outside of the shoulders and hocks rather than true black there. His chest/belly looks like Shay's only Shay just has a couple light cream spots and some spotting on the bare skin down by his business end.

An extreme and obvious example is something like a husky where it is light down deep in the center and dark up on the surface. Also found it cats like the Abyssinian. The whole cattle dog shows that ticking rather than one true solid color in defined regions. That is why their spots appear sort of indistinct rather than like a dalmation with clear spots on a clear background.

One of my former dogs was a BC/GSD mix. She was a great mutt. She got the BC size and delicate bone structure with the deep chest of the GSD. She could cut and run like a dragonfly. Her paws were so small and perfect, deep glossy GSD eyes.

My brother has one, her name is Ella. We fostered her and her littermates, all but one looked like short GSD, some with and some without tails. The one girl ended up being more blue with typical cattle dog markings.



I have one of her and her aunt but it wont come up.
