HEIDI- Rescue- What Breeds Is She??

After so many people requested photos, here's a recent pic showing her front view.

What do you think she is? I have my guesses based on temperment and obedience or lack thereof.

Traits- very people oriented- great with everyone- a tad protective on farm w/ trespassers and/or

errant wildlife. More independent thinking, not as quick to accept correction, always thinking

but not as compliant as my former full gsd. Loves to herd the horses. Not too quick to learn tricks.

Very dog reactive with some dogs. With soft, strange dogs can be slowly introduced. Hard headed.

Plan to do Embark DNA some day but in the meantime what's your guess?

Mostly shepherd, with some husky mixed in.

Doesn’t look or sound like a Husky mix to me. This is my GSD/Husky. 75% GSD, 25% Husky, yet looks and acts just like a Husky.

Yours looks more/sounds more like a GSD/Cattle dog to me 🤷‍♀️

She could be full GSD like White mixed with Saddle back. I don't see much husky. They tend to have shorter, rounder muzzle. However, genetics are sometimes weird and could be Husky/GSD mix. Many people do this mix by mistake or in effort to create new breed.

Ok, yeah, there could be cattledog in there, now that I think about it. But still mostly GSD.

Pet line GSD. If there is another breed it’s minimal, no more than 1/4.

I see purebred American pet lines. I don't see husky but a reversed mask and I don't see ACD at all.

If you need equipment to maintain control of your dog, understand you’re hanging on to your dog’s body because you’ve lost his mind!

so far I agree with ALL of you- which is why I'm so unsure. She's so different from my last full gsd temperament wise

which is why I thought a mix. I appreciate all the guesses. Would a full side body photo help? I can get one.
