Shepherd Heeler Mix Male -Paris


This dog is being advertised in a local rescue as a shep/heeler mix. I have no problem with this, other than the fact that this dog looks like a PB black gsd to me. In fact, she looks almost identical to my 4 month old Jackson who is DEFINITELY a pb black gsd. Thoughts? I am not looking to correct the poster or anything, I just want to know for my own curiosity. Thanks!

The head isn't quite right. In the pic where the dog is laying down it is more pronounced. Pretty dog, though.

Not sure I buy that she is mixed with heeler, but she is mixed with something.

Yeah the second picture, I just wanted to chalk up to weird camera angle. She just looks so much like Jackson it's scary. I don't see where they'd pull heeler mix (unless they had direct knowledge that one of the parents was a heeler) but then again, most heelers are results of mixes too....
