Default Does anyone know what kind of puppy this is??

I just adopted this puppy, and the rescue group informed me that the mother is a german shepherd / siberian husky mix. However, they do not know what the father was. Can anyone tell by this photo? I am thinking maybe aussie?? If anyone can help, that would be great. Thanks!

Hello and welcome to the forum! Great to have you with us. What a cute little baby. Congratulations on your new family member.

Oh my ... I'm hoping somebody else can help you. Could be weeks or even months worth of growth & development before I come up with a good suggestion as to daddy's breed.

You cant really tell at this age, but I would say there is some border collie thrown in there for good measure just from the coloring.

That's what first came to my mind too but I was afraid to say it because so many dogs can have that coloring.

Default Shamu's Mother, Shima

Well I know that the mother, Shima, is German Shepherd x Siberian Husky (her photo is attached), but they did not know what the father was.

Default Shamu's siblings

Shamu's other siblings are attached. As you can see, they are all different! Shadi looks a lot like a German Shepherd pup, but that's all I can tell.

AND it has the coloring and marking familar with Boston Terriers I raised long ago. It also has the Border mix in it. Markings are important in trying to figure out a mix and it is a lovely pet you got and cherish it regardless.
