Full Blood Australian Shepherd?

by Cheyenne



I have never had an Aussie before, but I may be adopting one. He is 8 months old. The vet wasn't very clear when I asked if he was full blooded Aussie. I wanted to get opinions from those who love them most! He is a rescue dog and was abused as a smaller pup, so I thought that was why he is smaller. He is all black except for white/gray specks on his chest. I tried to google images, but I couldn't find one that was similar. My friends mom is convinced he's mixed with pit bull, but she's crazy.. I think. Sorry the picture isn't very clear- he's hyper (but doesn't like it outside).

Can you post some more photos from different positions? Has the pup had a hair cut?

Could be...

At 8 months he could be in that goofy phase where they have an adult body but their adult coat isn't finished coming in yet. Their hair is too short, legs and ears too long.

As far as color, we have a purebred aussie that is almost 100% black with just a few white hairs on her chest. It is called it a self-black I believe, but technically still a black bi.
