Those are pretty much what I think of when I think of dog eyes: brown and soulful.

    Hey can i see more pics of this dog? it looks exactly like mine(black with white chest, brown eyes, short and stubby.) we just had a DNA test after assuming she was part corgi, and i guess she’s border collie!

      Oh, wow, I’ll have to do a quick look through my photo archives when I get home from my trip. I took these pictures in 2012, so it’s been a while!

      But I’ll tell you something: it’s very, very rare for a dog that isn’t at least part short-legged-breed to end up with legs like this. And dog genetic tests aren’t exactly known for their accuracy…

      Casey, what other breeds showed up on her DNA test? I’m curious! I had a dog identical to this one that my family rescued in Palm Springs back in 2001. She passed away in 2015. I never did a DNA test and I wish I had. I now own another rescue that looks just like this as well—I decided to DNA test her last week, now that I’m working in the veterinary field and have access to discounts on DNA tests (they can get really pricey). Its rare to come across mixed breeds that look like this!
