Default She looks like a tiny GSD!

My brother adopted a German Shepherd/Border Collie named Nahla a few months back. She's about 3 years old and is as big as she'll get.

She looks like a 25lb black German Shepherd to me (aside from the white on her toes and the tiny white patch on her chest).

This is her, "THERE IS A CAR PULLING UP, I WONDER WHO'S INSIDE!" face, which shows off her big ears pretty well.







I swear, if they could find a way to guarantee that that cross always looked like tiny German Shepherds...

I like the sable around her scruff and back hips too.

She makes that face if:

- Someone says her name.

- Someone is offering her food.

- A car approaches, she doesn't bark, she just gives it that intent look until she sees who's coming out of it.

- There is a bug of some sort flying around that she'd like to catch and eat...and she has no fear of bees, much to my brother's dismay. So far, no stings, and he does watch to distract her or correct her when she starts trying to chase bees, but it may take getting a face sting to really put her off trying to eat bees!

Don't count on the bee sting stopping her. My male GSD Midnite has made it his goal to catch every bee he sees. I sometimes end up playing hot potato with the bee so I don't get stung and I can get the bee to safety. His favorite are bumble bees, but anything that flies in a small radius of him is fair game. He gets stung all the time these days and it doesn't stop him. I don't think he even feels it anymore.

She is adorable. I always say, if there was a mini GSD, I would be getting one. Looks like you guys found it!

She does look like a small GSD, glad your brother gave her a new home.

You just described my 2 females, Tuke and Zoey, getting stung does nothing. Mine prefer yellow jacks, but probably because there are so many. They found a small hole in my wood shed where bald face hornets had made a nest and both girls would lay and wait for them to fly out. They discovered it as we were packing up to go camping for a week. Upon return, they went straight back to hunting them.

All the bee chasers kind of make one wonder about that "third smartest dog breed" designation.

You should see my greyhound/husky jumping in the air for moths, he gets at least 6-8 ft in the air. They amuse themselves I guess If it isn't bees or moths then it's toads.
