Her head looks WGSL. I agree there may be other lines in there. I really don't like to consider the fading of color because cameras capture sometimes weirdly. She looks like she may have been spayed early, and is a little leggy. Nice looking dog, I hope she is very fun and everything you were looking for.

I had pet and two show line dogs and now i have working line dog. Show lines are bred for "looks" (of certain type). In contrast in working lines the emphasis is on temperament and good structure (rather than what wins you ribbons). Therefore the hall mark of a good working line is very stable nerves and temperament (a dog can territorial yet very calm) and healthy (if a dog is not healthy it cannot work). So i think it the behaviour of ur dog under various circumstances is a better indicator of its working lineage than what it looks like. I am back after a long time, so felt like sharing my views. Hope u won't mind
