Fayla's Identity crisis
Fayla's identity crisis. Because of her color and markings a lot of people mistake her for other breeds. Most ask if she a small German Shepherd or a Shepherd cross, some ask if she's a Heeler mix, and all are surprised when I tell them she's all Heeler, just a very dark one. I can see how most people unfamiliar with Cattle Dogs could mistake her for a German Shepherd, or a German Shepherd mix, but there's another breed she's mistaken for several times....a Welsh Corgi! I had one lady, who has 3 Australian Cattle Dogs, one was even in her truck at the time she was here, look at Fayla and say "hmm, Corgi and a little bit of Heeler, are we?" At Pet Smart one day a lady happily cried out "ohhh, it's a Corgi mix, I have a Corgi too!" Fayla may not have turned out to look like a typical Australian Cattle Dog that people are used to seeing, but she's all Cattle Dog no matter what else she might look like to some. She's unique and we love her!
