Now I've never owned either breed before, but I did do some research before adopting her and I'm really not seeing the Australian Cattle Dog. She's about 9 months old, 25 pounds, seems to have the build of a Basenji for the most part…Tan with white on her neck and chest and a little bit of white on a couple of her paws. She's got big ears but they're floppy. Tail is the same size and shape, curls a bit but not all the way on her back.
Personality wise, she gets big bursts of energy and is VERY persistent. She spends a decent amount of time cleaning herself. We've had her since Friday and she already knows "sit" and responds to her name, so she's clearly going to be a very fast learner. While she is energetic, she also is a total cuddle-monster and seems to like to veg out. When the humane society told us what mix she was we were expecting an overwhelming amount of energy but thus far it's been a pretty expected amount of energy for any young dog. She does bark--it's almost similar to a beagle or terrier's bark. We have two cats that she seems interested in but not aggressive towards whatsoever and doesn't chase after them or anything. She's met a few other dogs and initially barks when she sees them from far away...Seems a little nervous when she meets them but is fine. She has loved every person she has met so far. I will post a few pics below but would love it if anyone could give me some clues just for fun of what other breed she might be, since I really don't see any traits unique to ACDs.
