Last week we got our gorgeous new rescue 5 month old pup "Pip". We saw her on Pet rescue and fell in  love and had her flown down to us from Broome. A few days before we got her they realised at a vet check that her back leg had been badly broken at some stage and has healed poorly so they offered us a refund and asked us to pick another dog as Pip will be needing to have the leg amputated. We decided to take her anyway and will see what our vet thinks when we see him next week, I would rather be the one to nurse her through the amputation if she needs it.

She is a gorgeous pup and gets on well with our dog Digby and loves the kids. We have been trying to work out what she is a mix of, I'm sure there is some kelpie in there, she is only small and I don't think she will grow much bigger. I have attached a photo...what breeds can you see in her ?

She is beautiful. No idea on breeds, I am dreadful at picking, but those eyes are just precious!

Wow, what a gorgeous puppy! Definitely kelpie or cattle dog with those big ears original.gif

Well done on rescuing a lovely puppy. I rescued my Toby eight years ago - he was so sick and thin - his ribs/shoulder bones, etc were poking out because he was so undernourished. He has turned out to be the most wonderful, sweet dog.

I hope you have many happy years with Pip.

What a cutie patooti.  Those eyes...those ears.  Not sure if he's finished growing into the ears though, they seem awfully big for a little pup.

She is gorgeous - what a face.  Good luck ever telling her off.

My crazy guess is kelpie and german shepherd mixed in there somewhere.
