ID my new dog
« on: August 27, 2007, 12:09:47 PM »
this is Bo.  he's very  nice.  good house manners.  doesn't eat cats  :-).  i have a guess as to what most of Bo is, but what do you think??

He's gorgeous, do I detect some border collie in him?

i think so, and maybe lab?  my son in CA took him from a neighbor who was going to drop him at the shelter.  seems Bo got very concerned every time the new baby cried and tried to jump in the crib.  :-)  no danger of that happening here!

he is such a nice dog, but needed the room to run for sure.  we are his 4th home and he's only 2.  we have only had him 2 weeks, but i can find no fault with him.  he just has a lot of energy.  he's good company for my border collie.  she's been lonely since her old companion died.

Yes, I see lab in there, too.  Two great breeds!  Good for you guys.  And good for your older border collie, I'm happy she's found a friend.  :)  I'd love to live somewhere where I could have a b.c., not on this road, though.  Maybe if I ever do get my retirement farm.....

Lab is my guess. If you really want to know there is a place that will compare your dogs DNA against all AKC breeds for identification. I think its called dog genome inc. Cost about $55 two yrs ago. I'm sure you could google.

i like mutts and i don't really care what is in them.  sometimes it's nice to have an idea since breed can influence behavior, but other than that, i'll save the money for dog food  :-)

i'm going to guess it is part white and part black- he looks like a fun dog to run with
lets throw it in the air and see which  way it splatters
