What Type of Dog is This?

Hi. Umm....We found this dog abandon and abused in a ditch. Could anyone tell me what type he is. thank you. he looks like a fox huh. one more thing, I'm trying to find a home for him.


  1. I was thinking the same thing. He looks like a fox and his tail is odd looking. I don't know much about dog breeds as I usually just had a mutt. Are you keeping him? Paula

  2. oh, that poor baby...looks like a terrier mix of some kind, maybe some collie in the blood.  i hope you find a good, loving home for him.  he looks like he could use some love.

  3. Looks like a Sheltie (Shetland Sheepdog) to me.  They are very sweet tempered dogs.

  4. Awww... poor thing.  He does look kind of like a sheltie.  That maybe had a really close haircut.  I think that's why his tail looks like that.  I hope you find a good home for him.  
                                                                                             :)  Leigh

  5. My first thought was that he DOES look a little fox-like! I hope you can find a home for the little guy. :)


  6. Bless you for taking care of that poor dog.

  7. so sweet of you to try to find a home for him!!! he does look like he has some sheltie in him; his face almost looks corgi, but not his legs for sure

    good luck finding him a home


  8. hi,
    posibly a sheltie / terrier mix,
    looks like his coat has been cut (badly)    so maybe easlier to tell when its grown a bit

  9. Like everyone else, i say that dog is a sheltie, or at least a sheltie mix.  Very cute.  hope he/she finds a good, loving home...

  10. He looks part Collie, part Sheltie.  Well, he's a Heinz 57.  He's a lot of things.  Bless his heart.  He looks so skinny and frail.  I hope you can fatten him up and get him a good home.  That's so awful that people do drop offs like that.

  11. I was thinking Collie, but he's kind of small for one. No matter what, I think your rather kind to take him in and care for him till you find him a home. Poor thing looks so frail and skinny. (Hugs)Indigo

  12. After my comment I went and looked up what type of dogs were similiar to a Collie but smaller. Add in the fact this one looks like it was given a bad haircut. I think I have your answer it's a Shetland Sheep dog. I'm including a link of what they look like with all their hair. I hope this helps.


  13. Sorry the link didn't work, try this one:

  14. He looks foxy-coyote to me. I am sooo glad you don't live near me. I am getting weak just looking at him, & if you leaved nearby I could see myself easily convinced(though the kittens would be very upset with me).

  15. He looks like a cutie to me................bless him :)


  16. Hi Eler Beth!
    I'm one of your mom's friends who has fallen way behind on my journal reading, sorry I'm just getting here. It sure looks like you've got the hang of journaling, glad you've decided to join us!
    What a coincidence that the little dog you found looks like a fox! I hope he's ok, poor little guy.
    Good luck getting your new room done! I love the colors you're thinking about using.

  17. I have no idea what kind of dog this is, but I'm SO GLAD YOU found him... I know you'll make sure he is well taken care of, poor little guy!!!


  18. He sure looks like part Sheltie-he needs vitamins and TLC-hope you can keep him-call him lil foxie, .
