Our pretty girl
Mira, German Shepherd Mix
GSD Mix Mira

This is Mira, full name Mira Belle (pronounced Meera).


We rescued her from a flea infested farm where she was underfed and left outside in one horse stall all day with her 10 brothers and sisters, (and as one of the two runts of the litter, had a couple scars when we got her from them being too rough).

We originally were thinking German Shepherd Collie Mix, but now that she's stopped growing so fast, it's looking like more German Shepherd Sheltie Mix.

She is almost 8 months old and weighs 45 lbs. We saw mom and she was a large GSD. Other considerations have been part greyhound, part heeler, or part husky.

She eats like a horse, so we have to regulate her food.

At least two laps/ chases around the house, at least 5 play sessions, and 1 walk around the neighborhood daily. Plus the occasional wrestle match/ play date when she's sees her neighborhood dog pals.

She is super friendly towards people and other dogs as long as they don't bark at her, then she gets scared. She loves sprinting, playing in the snow, a game of catch, and taking walks. She is extremely intelligent but still a little clumsy with those long legs.

She learns new tricks super quickly and is very loyal and watches over her mom and dad. Never shown any aggression, however any big or noisy objects always get barked at. She is very vocal, while playing, trying to sleep, or anything. Mira has the biggest personality and is just the sweetest girl!

GSD Mix
by: Michigan Cheryl

Maggie is 8 months as of 10/2/13 and weighs 47 lbs. Same energy level that you describe in your dog.

Maybe the Ohio shelter she was rescued her from, got her from PA?? I'm thinking Shelty due to the small size .

I've got one too!
by: Michigan Cheryl

I have a dog rescued from an Ohio shelter that we think was born early Feb 2013.

She looks a lot like Mila! Definitely GSD, mixed with ?? We are thinking possibly Shelty cuz she's smaller & softer than a Shepherd.

We think she's 7 months & weighs 40 lbs. Her ears went through a series of pointing in different directions (including a couple months of crossing each other-it was sooo cute!) Now her ears stand up & sometimes come together to form a perfect triangle on top of her head.

She's developing a long-ish soft "mane" around her neck. GSD colors & some white on the chest & silver on the belly. Yeah, she eats a lot, like Mila, but what young dog doesn't.

Give Mila a pat from mine,
Maggie

What breed(s) do you think she is mixed with? We saw her mom who was a larger, mostly tan with a smaller black saddle and black muzzle, German shepherd dog.

Mira's dad could have been a mutt, they had no idea! Please help us figure this out!!!
