I got the dog DNA breed info package (or whatever it's called). Takes 2-3 weeks to get the results, but worth it; always interesting to learn what the dog's ancestry is. It's not 100% accurate tho so be warned (worth trying anyway!)

I have a "muppet" like yours. Our dog, Essie, is about 30 lbs., extremely soft coat of white, tans and a little black, a white collar around her neck and wrestles. She is affectionate, smart and full of energy. Cute as a button. Essie is a lighter coat color than yours. I came to this site looking up Schnauzer, Border Collie mix. People, including her trainer say, Bearded Collie. She was found wondering around with no collar or chip. Put ads in paper and all over, so she is ours now. Who would let a bearded collie roam around? I like everyone's responses.

Schnauzer and Cocker Spaniel. Very likely one off those "poo" crosses that are done deliberately, given cutsie names, and sold for a lot of money to the unsuspecting.

Those poor pups often end up in the shelter, so I am glad to see that your sister is taking good care of her.

Hi! I came across this picture while googling "schnauzer bearded collie" images. I believe that is what my mix is, and I've never seen another dog look so similar to my own. I wonder if they could even have been litter mates! I would be happy to share pictures and happier to chat - feel free to get in touch at [email]annabethrobins@gmail.com[/email]

Since my original post was in 2008 and every now and then it gets kicked up again I decided to add some current photos of the Muppet . My sister and her have enjoyed several years of agility.I last saw her last year her coat remains as soft as ever and she is a smart dog also very good at learning tricks. Years ago my sister had talked about returning her as she was not really what she had wanted and is a reactive dog but I think she is glad she listened to me as she really is a sweet dog and tends to be a good dog. In some of these photos she has had a hair cut, enjoy the photos!

These tests are 100% accurate?

No the tests are not 100% accurate and sometimes can not even come up with the most recent breeds but can show trace amounts of a a breed involved generations ago.

She is still adorable. I have no idea what breed she is but, even though their coloring is different, your dog could be an understudy for this dog, who played "Sandy" in the movie version of Little Orphan Annie:



If you find out this ^^ dog's lineage, I think that you will know (at least partly) what your dog's is.

I vote poodle mix (google "Benji the poodle mix"). Poodle mixed with oh, I'll say border collie. Definitely 100% adorable!
