    I am so excited! I finally know what she is for sure! drum role.....
    one of her parents was a pure bred Shiba Inu, Like I thought, and then her other parent was a German Shepherd, Siberian Husky, Akita mix. I did not see that coming lol She is not a large dog so it did surprise me that she has such a large dog as one of her parents. she is 6 months old and 18 lbs, so I am guessing she will be around 25lbs when she is fully grown. but anyway to celebrate finding out what my beautiful girl has in her, I took some pictures to post for you guys to look at ^_^ enjoy

    Those DNA things get some really crazy results sometimes. I would not take it as the solid truth, more of a suggestion.

    Anywho, she's a nifty looking dog! When she's fully grown you'll be able to get a better idea of what breeds are actually in her makeup from her appearance and personality. It can be harder to tell when they are young.

    Agreed with @Kobe1468! She's certainly nifty looking. Do you tell people she's a Shiba mix or a Husky mix?

    She's got beautiful markings!
  • She has the perfect bits of each breed!! Hopefully she will have the "re-call" (come) ability of the German Shepherd and not the "Run away as fast as I can.." of the off-leash Shiba. She is really lovely!

    Haha thanks guys, I love her so much! I tell everyone she is a Shiba mix, she is small and her body is built more like a Shiba then a husky, though her coloring looks lots like a husky. She is about 16" at her shoulders and almost 7 months old so she is lots smaller then her pictures make her look lol

    Yep, she looks like what I would envision a "mini husky" looking like! Without the toy features the Klee Kais have.

    She is very definitely visually striking, and I bet she'll get a lot of attention. I agree with zandrame, she looks like a more robust version of a klee kai. Not to sound hysterical, but I'd get her microchipped.

  • Cool looking dog. I always get asked if my Shibas are huskies. Yours actually looks like one.

    It is fun to have DNA test results to give you an idea what they believe your mix is. I know I did it with my mix. It sure isn't 100% accurate and I know I have read many things before doing the DNA test on how inaccurate it actually is, but short of guessing it is the next best knowledge. In my case at the 8 great grandparent level only 3 breeds were even close enough matches for the test to report on their guess.

    In my case we also had German Shepherd and Siberian Husky, but we had Chow Chow as the third reported breed out of the 8 great grandparents with the other 5 not definitive enough for the report to list. I still see a lot of Shiba (or Akita) in my mix, so I have gone to calling him a Poppycock mix (after the food) of nutty goodness.

    She really looks like a very pretty Husky mix, so enjoy her and hope she has the best of the traits from whatever breeds are truly in her :)

    Great looking pup! Just by looking at your pictures I would have guessed Shiba/Husky mix
  • She is beautiful!

    I think you got the best-possible looking outcome of that mix. Hope you got all the best of the temperament and health, too! ;) The size difference is a little surprising, but not that much to me... At any rate, she's super cool.

    Wow what a cool looking dog! The pics could be misleading but she looks like she'll be more than 25lbs.
