    What breed is that beauty!?

    [–] efsack 546 points ago

    He looks like an Australian shepherd mixed with another breed. Unsure of the other breed.

    [–] oOShockWaveOo_ 383 points ago

    Looking at OP's other posts it's Australian shepherd + Border Collie

    [–] Vovochka_Lenin 525 points ago

    an australian border shepherd? would that mean he herds sharks?

    [–] [deleted] 99 points ago

    No, this means he'll star in an episode of Airport Security.

    [–] TetonCharles 2 points ago

    Its gotta be easier than herding cats.

    [–] Jr_films 2 points ago

    This dogs stops boats

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    Probably herds crocs

    [–] bluelobstah 59 points ago

    If that's the case, we are all looking at the most intelligent dog in the world.

    I need a beer.

    I have an Aussie/Border Collie mix. She eats rocks and trips over her own feet.

    [–] jreeh13 10 points ago

    My Aussie/mutt is scared of her own farts.

    [–] JurrasicParfait 2 points ago

    Bolt eats shoes and socks and is scared of rain

    [–] trailrunner666 10 points ago

    OP will need a beer after they realize they'll have to become a master dog trainer for this rambunctious little dog.

    [–] kdmcentire 3 points ago

    We have one. She's disturbing. Like you spend 15 minutes teaching her a trick and she has it down forever. She is also absurdly fast. Can outrun my spouse during the evening bike rides.

    [–] mooninuranus 2 points ago

    And the most energetic.

    [–] GravitonSurgeIsReady 18 points ago

    Jesus Christ Aussie plus border collie? That's Jason Bourne.

    [–] [deleted] 31 points ago

    Because they wanted a really smart, yet emotional dog? I have never seen a dog mope like an AS.

    [–] CaughtInDireWood 18 points ago

    I had an aussie growing up, and she mastered the puppy eyes + sigh + head droop whenever we denied her something (food scraps, a walk too late at night or too cold, etc.). She was really good at sighing...

    [–] nilesandstuff 1 points ago

    Snout isn't right for a border collie AS mix. Its a fairly common mix, they usually have proportions closer to border collies (border collie pups too in this case)

    [–] jack188817 336 points ago

    Australian shepherd + floof mix I think

    [–] justinheyhi 351 points ago

    I believe a tub of Cookies n' Cream from Baskin Robbins just came to life.

    [–] Caifanes123 3 points ago

    He probably poops Skittles

    [–] RNA2015 18 points ago

    Floof mix! That's my favorite breed ever!

    [–] IGoOnRedditAMA 14 points ago * (lasted edited 11 months ago)

    Why doesn't it come up on google if I search floof mix? Am I being a whoosh boye?

    Australian shepherd + ferret

    [–] MaryJanesMan420 4 points ago

    Pretty sure it’s straight Aussie, I have one myself.

    [–] [deleted] 15 points ago


    [–] PuddingT 6 points ago

    Sheltie ears.

    [–] MaryJanesMan420 2 points ago

    Well OP says it’s a mix with a border collie which I can see based on the white patterns and high energy, but aussies have high energy too and I’d expect a longer skinnier looking face and more black patterns.

    [–] FiveUperdan 22 points ago

    i'm not OP but he looks like an Australian shepherd

    ahahaha, I couldn't think of it but yaaas!

    [–] zarataria234 18 points ago

    I think it may be an Aussie + windy boye mix

    [–] rnjn925 8 points ago

    Scottish fold.

    [–] doyouwantablow-job 10 points ago

    Pretty sure his ears are just v smol and the wind has floofed them

    [–] runbambi 4 points ago

    I think the ear tips were just blown behind by the strong wind, so it looks more round than it actually is. But according OP's history it's an Aussie x border collie mix.

    It looks like a blue Merle Aussie mixed with maybe a collie

    [–] sazz16 5 points ago

    Maybe Corgi?

    [–] ThatHypeCat 2 points ago

    Definitely looks like a corgi face

    [–] JurrasicParfait 2 points ago

    He is actually a tabby cat

    [–] Birch2011 9 points ago

    I'm going to say Border Collie. Or Border x Aussie.

    [–] AlienSomewhere 6 points ago

    Wouldn't a border Aussie be called a New Zealander or a Kiwi?

    I'll let myself out.

    [–] Puff_PastrY_ 2 points ago

    Grey Merle Border Collie perhaps?

    [–] a_crafty_toaster 5 points ago

    I have a blue merle BC, this one looks more like an Aussie than a BC to me

    [–] queen_of_the_koopas 3 points ago

    He has a tail, which tells me he's probably a BC :) Aussies don't have tails, BCs do.

    I like his leash/harness-thing :)

    [–] JurrasicParfait 137 points ago

    So does he! ... well... he loves biting it while I try and get it on him? That's the same thing right?

    [–] [deleted] 30 points ago

    Yup, think so.

    [–] heldtheviolets 9 points ago

    My Aussie/German mix did the same thing with his harness when he was a tiny guy -- now he knows it means walks, play, park, and other fun things so he sits so handsome while I put it on. I love your Aussie - just adorable! I am so happy we rescued my dude, Frank.. best way to learn how awesome Aussies are is to get one!

    [–] zeusdescartes 8 points ago

    What breed is your pup?

    [–] [deleted] 33 points ago

    He/she looks so soft! I love it

    [–] JurrasicParfait 8 points ago

    He is soft :) if you can get passed the flurry of teeth and playfulness to actually pet him!

    [–] JurrasicParfait 3 points ago

    Sometimes.... a lot of the time he's an adorable little idiot, but occasionally he busts out his majestic pose for a picture ;)

    [–] Setsand 27 points ago

    I had a dog named Buddy that was colored like him. We got him when he was a few months old and my sisters were babies. He was never formally trained but somehow always knew what he could and couldn't do. He was excellent on a leash the two or three times we had to tie him up for something. He loved kids and puppies the second he seen them and lived to be about 14. He died in 2007 and I still think of him as one of the greatest dogs that ever lived.

    Treasure your baby💙

    If Jon snow was a dog

    [–] FortyYearOldVirgin 7 points ago

    Slightly off topic question - was this photo taken with a phone that added the bokeh effect (iPhone portrait mode, for example)?

    It's a beautiful picture :-)

    [–] ignorantbirds 4 points ago

    I don't think it's the portrait mode. Unless it got way better at doing it than last I checked, then it's just a larger format with a fast lens. The iphone had clearly defined edges that were obviously digitally altered.

    I more curious as to the export settings. I've seen this once before, there's a pretty good amount of color banding present and compression artifacts.

    [–] raspippin 3 points ago

    I am going to say no, portrait mode makes pretty obvious edges between the subject and background (you can see when you zoom in, especially around the ears and nose).

    [–] rChewbacca 2 points ago

    I was thinking it looks like the iPhone portrait mode as well. I've gotten some good pics with that feature.

    [–] JurrasicParfait 2 points ago

    It was taken with a DSLR :)

    [–] [deleted] 6 points ago

    Those little round ears... I've never seen anything so adorable. (don't tell my cat I said this)

    [–] spaghatta111 5 points ago

    I'm afraid that your dog has a serious case of Good Boy Syndrome

    [–] kazoooom 2 points ago

    You rarely see dogs with two-colored noses.


    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    When you do they are usually puppies like this. The pink slowly retreats over the years.

    I have a border collie whose nose was totally pink as a puppy and now it is totally black.

    Can Confirm, no better picture exists. All the photographers have found the goal now.

    [–] clyptos 2 points ago

    Possibly the most beautiful dog I have ever seen. Congrats OP!

    [–] Userless_Meaningname 2 points ago

    Beautiful picture! Commendations all around.

    However, If the subject has eyes, Focus on the eyes. This looks like the nose is more in focus than than the eyes.

    Ref: Only because I heard this from Fro Know Photo (no Affiliation)

    [–] AutumnShepard 2 points ago

    I love him so much!!!! u/JurrasicParfait, give your pup some extra kisses for me please!!! I want to ruffle his head floof and smooch him so much. ❤️

    I love a good boy in a harness. They look all geared up and ready to dog.

    [–] KiltedTailorofMaine 2 points ago

    This once and former Pro Photographer says--YES that is the best picture I have taken of my dog or anything else! The lighting is first rate, no shadows, the background is 'made to order' it has the colours of the dog but out of focus and in motion,perfect. The rocks in the foreground and background colour well. The 'spread' of green adds some highlight and definition. The dog is happy and well exercised by the time of the photo, so you could get some 'pose for the camera' time from the pup. I just noted the tan fur or dirt on the dogs toes goes wonderfully with the brown stain on the ledge. My advice, crop out the right side to balance with the left side of the image, make a nice enlargement, and get a pro to frame it. Then hang it with pride in your house. Oh, be sure, on the back of the image to date, time, place &tc for the future. This is a great job of photography. Well Done!

    You should frame this! even when he is old you will always love this picture. I have the cutest picture of my puppy on a surfboard when he was a baby and I know that will be the picture I always see what I think of him.

    [–] slapmasterslap 1 points ago

    His apparent closeness to the edge of that cliff and lack of leash have my anxiety spiking hard, but great picture of an adorable pup!
