Help. I Don't Think The Puppy We Got Is A Purebred Australian Shepherd
I had purchased an "Australian Shepherd" puppy and paid $150 for her. The people told us she is purebred between a mini and standard but will definitely get that long thick hair we want.
But upon meeting her in person we saw she isn't even a puppy. Yes, she is young but we were expecting a puppy and she is already like 4-5 months old and has no training what so ever and we found they completely docked her tail which we did not want and we truly believe she isn't an Australian Shepherd. We think she is a mixed breed.
Can anyone take a guess of what she is even though she is a sweet girl and shy we wanted an energetic true Australian Shepherd that will be a puppy that we can have from the start.
She also came covered in dandruff all over her body and seemed bloated around her stomach but skinny around the hips and neck and seems very timid and scared when you first walk up to her or near her.
She is slowly coming up to me if I'm seated but if I'm standing she will run to the puppy bed we bought her.
